Oceanfront home is a beach lover's delight


Architectural columns define living space while the openness keeps the fabulous beach and ocean views visible from just about any point in the home.

On the oceanfront side, a large tiled sunroom effortlessly flows to the covered deck, linking the indoor and outdoor living spaces with a wall of oversized windows and a door out to the beach.

There is a full bath off the sunroom that makes it a breeze to shower off after a day on the beach.

The sunroom is open to a bright great room that features hardwood floors, comfortable seating and excellent views. There is a lovely dining room with a hardwood floors and bay window. The centrally located kitchen creates an outstanding floor plan for easy entertaining.

The kitchen has cherry cabinetry, gorgeous granite counters, a center work island and a tile floor.

A second full bath, including a laundry and an enormous storage closet completes the beach level.

Up the hardwood staircase are three bedrooms, a bath and an oceanfront deck with truly spectacular views of the beach, coastline and the Isles of Shoals.

The master bedroom suite is heavenly, with double glass doors and a full-length window framing breathtaking views. Step out the doors onto the deck and it feels as if the deck extends right over the ocean. It would be incredible to wake up to the orange glow of sunrises over the horizon each morning.

The comfortable master suite has double closets and an en-suite bath.

There are two additional bedrooms. A second bedroom also has glass doors out to the oceanfront deck. The third bedroom would make a great guest space.

The home offers great amenities for year-round oceanfront living, including carefree siding and decking designed to stand up to the ocean breezes, central air conditioning, public water and sewer and a basement for storage.
