A classic beach house in a simply sublime location

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


A built-in corner china cabinet in the dining room is practical and attractive while the compact kitchen is efficient with easy access to a covered porch, the perfect spot for a gas grill and laid-back summer cooking.

Thoughtfully planned is a bath and laundry room combination accessible off the covered porch. After day at the beach, it is the perfect place to drop those sandy towels, swim suits and shower before heading into the comfortable home.

Up the angle staircase are four sunny bedrooms and a full bath. Each of the bedrooms has large windows for natural light and some have views of the beach. It is great space for a large family or guests.

The charming three-bedroom guesthouse next door is a real bonus. The compact beach house has a great covered front porch, sunny living room, well-organized kitchen, full bath and three comfortable bedrooms. There are two separate driveways for each house and plenty of off-street parking.

The homes each have excellent rental potential and history in this highly desirable beachfront neighborhood. The property, in income-tax-free Hampton Beach, NH, also makes an ideal condo conversion or dual ownership by a family of friends.

Along with the remarkable beach location the well-maintained homes offer many updates including new Thermopane windows and carefree siding. Other amenities include natural gas, town sewer and town water.

While located in the quiet, residential Island Section of Hampton Beach, the homes are just minutes from great food, entertainment and tax-free shopping. Major commuter routes including Routes 1, 95 and 101 are nearby. Beyond the summer fun, Hampton is a delightful year-round community of nearly 15,000 people who take great pride in their oceanfront town and famous seashore.

Marketed by Patrick Carey of Carey & Giampa Realtors at $549,000, this is a one-of-a-kind property that needs to be seen in person to appreciate the beachfront location, period details and exceptional potential and options. Interestingly, this property could be converted to condos and sold separately if the buyer wanted to do a joint purchase with a parent or family.
