---- — Attention beach lovers! A beautifully renovated three-plus-bedroom home, sitting directly opposite the beach in the heart of the prized Hampton Beach oceanfront neighborhood, can be yours for a week or for a lifetime.
In pristine, move-in condition, the 1920’s beach house is just steps from the surf, soft sand and all the fun that makes Hampton Beach so desirable. It can be rented for $3,500 per week and nine of the 10 summer weeks are still available — pick your vacation dates! The home is like new as it was completely remodeled in 2009 including the outer shell, windows, siding, roof, interior, flooring, fixtures, cabinetry and mechanical systems.
This is a rare opportunity to rent it by the week this summer and see firsthand how life at the beach should be. Some prime time weeks are still available at this perfect beach vacation house.
Stepping inside the beachfront home is a true pleasure. It is like stepping inside the pages of a glossy home décor magazine. A visitor is immediately impressed with the openness of the home, the natural light and how the rooms flow effortlessly creating a floor plan flawlessly suited to a contemporary beach lifestyle.
The grand foyer leads to the welcoming wrap-around oceanfront family room that is simply spectacular with large windows that embrace the ocean views. The expansive room, with clean simple lines and a handsome tile floor offers a comfortable seating area, causal dinning space and front-row seat on the beautiful beachfront neighborhood.
Anchored by a magnificent beachstone fireplace subtly accented by seashells, the living room is stunning. With a gas insert the fabulous fireplace is as practical as it is beautiful making this a great room to entertain in or just relax in on chilly evening.
A wide opening to the dining room is framed by columns that add to the impressive style of the home and provide great visual definition to space while maintaining the sense of openness and flow.
Double glass doors in the dining room lead out a deck with ocean views and bathe the rooms in natural light.
The epicurean-inspired kitchen is delightful with custom cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, excellent workspace, recessed lights, tile floor and backsplash. The soft natural tones of the tiles combine with the rich hues of the cabinets to create a gentle palette that echoes the colors of the beach and ocean.
The main living level also has a convenient half bath and laundry room along with lovely sitting room, ocean views and a day bed that would be a great guest room.
Up the attractive angled hardwood staircase is the bedroom level.
The 25-foot-by-12-foot-7-inch master bedroom is pure pleasure with double glass doors leading out to an oceanfront balcony providing magnificent views off to the horizon. The spacious room is bathed in natural light and it would be a wonderful place to enjoy the refreshing the ocean breezes and gentle sounds of the surf while sitting on the balcony on a warm evening. An elegant en-suite master bath is beautifully tiled, while the sizeable bedroom offers two large closets, gleaming hardwood floors and a comfortable sitting area.
There are two more charming bedrooms upstairs with hardwood floors, large windows, interesting angles and great closet space. The bedrooms share a pristine, tiled full bath.
On the lower level, the L-shaped bunkroom with wood floor and two windows is a real bonus. This could easily be additional guest space or would make a nice casual family room or even a great exercise space.
The whole house has excellent flow and original details including crown moldings, wide baseboards, built-ins and the truly unique beachstone and seashell fireplace.
Combine the exceptional beachfront location with the fabulous floor plan and style for a move-in property that is second to none.
Additional amenities include off street parking, natural gas heat and cooking, public water and city sewer. There are sidewalks so all the fun of income-tax-free Hampton Beach, including the seawall, boardwalk, restaurants and The Casino, are all only a short stroll from the front door.
Marketed by Patrick Carey of Carey & Giampa Realtors at $789,000, this is a one-of-a-kind property in an amazing beachfront location. It can be rented for $3,500 per week, with nine of ten prime weeks available. The pristine home is an absolute delight and it will either disappear quickly in this red-hot real estate market or be completely booked for the summer.
Carey will host and open house today, Sunday, June 23 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 1 Nudd Ave., Hampton. Pack the beach towels, it will be a great time to see this gorgeous home and then soak up some sun on Hampton Beach.
