Timeless cape offers front-row seat on natural beauty

Open house today, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Wow! Step into the oceanfront home on Beach Plum Way in income-tax-free Hampton, N.H. and the natural splendor of Plaice Cove and the Atlantic Ocean all the way out to the horizon unfold before your eyes. The charming classic cape offers a wall of full length windows and doors that frame the spectacular views and provide an amazing front row seat on the natural beauty of the frothy waves rolling up on to the picturesque beach and the shoreline with breath-taking vistas out to the Isles of Shoals.

Built in 1905, the timeless three-bedroom cape was completely redone in 2007. The careful renovations preserved a handsome wood-burning beachstone fireplace and the character of the home while maximizing the spectacular views and providing a contemporary open floor plan.

Located on a stretch of beach of multi-million dollar homes and elegant oceanfront estates, the home is delightful with traditional wooden cedar shakes and exquisite professional landscaping that enhances the oceanfront location with bursts of color from neat flower gardens and roses climbing weathered trellises. Butterflies dart among the fragrant flowers and gulls glide overhead on the salty breeze. There is a lovely farmer’s porch on the front and an amazing wrap-around oceanfront deck on the rear and side of the home.

While the heart-stopping views immediately capture your attention, the home is equally inviting with luxurious details throughout. The warm tones of the hardwood floors, staircase and cabinetry are a perfect balance to the omnipresent ocean views.

The open concept is ideal for entertaining year-round. The full-width oceanfront living room opens out to the wondrous wrap-around deck with plenty of room for seating, cooking, dining or simply relaxing. It is an awe-inspiring spot for watching the sunrise or for dining under the stars.
