---- — Living at the beach can be more than just a dream with amazing, new construction, single-family homes on Ashworth Avenue in Hampton Beach, N.H.
With crushed-stone driveways, gorgeous stone walkways, and a beautifully modern design aesthetic, a well-respected local builder is constructing these homes with the upmost attention to detail. Two homes have already been sold, and an additional four will break ground later this year.
The luxurious and spacious 2,230 square-foot accommodations feature four bedrooms, three-and-a-hath bathrooms, and an abundance of entertaining space. They are ideal for anyone who has ever wanted to live at the beach, or for buyers seeking a fabulous vacation home in the heart of Hampton Beach.
Nestled between Hampton Harbor and the Atlantic Ocean, these homes are within walking distance to the marina, various restaurants, the bustling Hampton Strip, the Hampton Ballroom Casino, and the newly refurbished Hampton Beach Seashell.
The interiors of the homes are a masterpiece of design that combine great style, delicate details, and fine craftsmanship to create a refreshing contemporary living space.
Through the oversized two-car garage, which has extra space for storage or hobbies, a set of hardwood stairs leads up to the second floor living area.
The large kitchen features custom beadboard cabinetry, under-cabinet lighting, beautiful granite countertops, a large farmers sink, and Samsung stainless steel appliances, including a gas-range oven, dishwasher, microwave and refrigerator. There is a cozy breakfast bar for casual meals and conversation and an open-concept dining area that provides access to the glorious three-season sunroom and deck.
The grand living room has gleaming hardwood floors, huge picture windows that will provide an ideal vantage point for summer fireworks, a built-in computer desk, and access to the front balcony. The builder has balanced this openness with a substantial gas fireplace that adds a sense of warmth and comfort to the spacious room.
This level of the home also has a half bathroom with laundry and a convenient coat closet.
Upstairs, on the third floor, the master bedroom suite features more stunning picture windows, a large walk-in closet, and a private en-suite bathroom with dual sinks, a tiled shower, and a separate linen closet. An additional two bedrooms and a full bathroom complete this level of the home.
There is also a large first floor bedroom suite with a lovely three-quarter bathroom and a large walk-in closet. This makes for terrific guest quarters or could be utilized as a game room, after-beach play space, or a home office. It also provides access to the back patio.
The amenities for these pristine homes are extensive and include multi-zone natural gas heating systems, central air conditioning, and town water and sewer.
Hampton is prized for its coastline and beaches and this home offers the best of both, but also in a convenient location. The two-car garage and additional parking spots are an uncommon find in the quiet beach neighborhood that is just minutes from major highways and commuter routes, including Routes 95 and 101.
Newburyport and Portsmouth are minutes away, and the drive to Boston is only 45 minutes.
