A classic beach house in a simply sublime location

Open house today, Nov. 4, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Ever dream of owning a classic beach house along with a guesthouse that provides income or space for extended family? Grab your towels, surfboard and flip-flops because this four-bedroom New England beach house tucked into the quiet and highly desirable Island Section of Hampton Beach, with a three-bedroom guesthouse, provides a unique and affordable opportunity for anyone who has dreamed of owning a home in this magnificent beachfront neighborhood.

Step out your front door and the beach beckons. Stroll to the highly prized sandy beach along the sidewalks of this dead end street. The location is simply sublime with the refreshing briny breeze and the gentle sound of the surf as a backdrop. Seabirds soar overhead, frothy waves roll up onto the shore and the vast ocean extends to the horizon. The owner of this beach property can leave the traffic, parking and crowds behind because the serene beauty of the Hampton Beach State Park is only steps from the front doors of both homes.

The four-bedroom beach house offers a delightful wrap-around porch, a perfect place to sit and relax and enjoy the cool ocean breeze on a warm summer evening. Completely finished with loads of windows, this extensive space is sure to be a popular spot for family and friends. The cleverly designed porch is accessible from two sides of the home and is a great link to the oceanfront neighborhood.

Inside the 1930s home has wonderful period charm and details including a glorious and eye-catching beach-stone fireplace that anchors the living room. The natural beauty of the stones and the design of the hearth link the home to its fabulous location and add a sense of warmth and a central focal point to the home. The living room offers loads of windows for natural light and wide openings to the dining room and the wrap-around porch for a nice flow.
