Wake up to amazing sunrises over North Beach

Overlooking North Beach in income tax-free Hampton, N.H., this beautiful beach house on Ocean Boulevard is as breathtaking as the ocean views that are visible from every room. Completely renovated in the past three years, it feels brand new. Entertain, enjoy the beach or just relax and enjoy the sunrises in one of the loveliest homes in this desirable oceanfront neighborhood.

Directly across from a sandy beach entrance, this fabulous house makes the most of its magnificent location with an array of custom windows, two covered oceanfront decks and a relaxing shady patio. Professionally landscaped with a rainbow of colorful perennials, the house also features outstanding architectural details including granite steps leading up to a welcoming front porch, carefree shingles, custom windows, and two curving turrets that capture the views all the way to Plaice Cove, out to the Isles of Shoals and beyond to the vast horizon.

Entering the front door a visitor is immediately impressed with how bright, light and open the home is. The openness embraces the ocean views while the décor offers subtle tones that echo the natural colors of the ocean and beach.

The sunroom is a front row seat on the beachfront. Watch the gulls soar; sailboats glide by and the lacey surf roll up onto the sandy beach. The living room is wide open to the sunroom, with built-in window seats, a hardwood staircase and arched openings to the kitchen and dining room balance the openness with fine architectural details. The window seats are a delightful touch and it is comforting to sit in the cozy seats and admire the turquoise ocean and coastline. Custom bamboo floors throughout gleam and add a warm hue.

The dining room, with bay windows and more built-in window seating, is a refined pleasure that is a lovely setting for candlelight dinners or everyday meals. Divided from the dining room by a handy breakfast bar, the sophisticated kitchen is every epicurean’s dream with just the right combination of handsome custom cabinets, extensive and gorgeous granite counters and amazing high-end appliances including a Bertazzoni gas range with a hidden stainless steel hood. The award-winning Cabico kitchen features a center island and a layout that works beautifully for entertaining.
