Oceanfront home is a beach lover's delight

Simply add flip-flops, a towel and a surfboard to complete the recipe for the perfect beachfront lifestyle at this three-bedroom, three-bath home sitting right on a sandy bluff in quiet North Salisbury.

Oceanfront decks provide some of the most spectacular ocean views on the entire New England coastline, and the large private backyard offers a walkway right to the rolling surf and stunning beach.

This classic beach house offers everything a beach lover could desire and more. There is off-street parking for at least eight cars, two oceanfront decks and a third deck with a motorized awning.

The large yard is fully fenced for privacy; there is a handy outdoor shower and even a storage shed for surfboards. The side gardens are lovely, with beach roses, and one has a boardwalk to the beach trail.

It is easy to envision spending the summer with family and friends on the covered beach-level deck. It is a cool oasis on a sunny summer afternoon, with plenty of room for a gas grill, dining table and relaxing lounge chairs.

Located at 3 Commonwealth Ave., mere steps from the Seabrook, N.H., line, the house allows homeowners to walk to great seafood at Brown’s, pick up fresh pastry and coffee at the bakery, take the family for ice cream or shop for fresh produce at the neighborhood farm stand.

Or stroll along the beach collecting shells, go for a run on the sand or simply sip coffee on the deck and watch the sunrise. This is a fantastic location.

This versatile beachfront home has been approved by the DES and Town of Salisbury for a significant, architect-designed addition, and that approval is valid for another 12 months or more with approved extensions.

Filled with natural light, the inside of the home is spacious, with an open floor plan.
