Rent or own a fabulous beach home


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.
