Classic beach home puts oceanfront at your doorstep

An open house will be held today, June 15, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

With panoramic vistas of the Atlantic Ocean, the waterfront home at 12 Beach Plum Way in Hampton, N.H., is pure pleasure. Steps from sandy Plaice Cove Beach, this five-bedroom, two-bathroom home is a real find for beach lovers.

The soft sands, rhythmic sounds and salty tang of the beach are at your threshold. Whether you take a moonlight stroll along the ocean or head out for a fun day of sun and surf, the beach is truly at your doorstep.

This quintessential beach house is comfortable and has lots of room for guests. It could be a great rental property and is completely insulated and winterized for year-round living.

The large family room features matchstick walls and ceilings and a gorgeous beach stone fireplace. The room leads into a lovely sunroom, complete with huge picture windows framing the beautiful natural surroundings. It is the ideal spot for listening to the waves while reading a book or for hosting summer parties.

The expansive entertainment deck at the back of the house provides space for barbecuing and entertaining family and friends. The private deck is incredible, with priceless vistas of peaceful Plaice Cove and views out to the Isles of Shoals.

Back inside, the bright kitchen offers a great spot for preparing easy family meals. There are more matchstick walls and ceilings, as well as plenty of counter space and storage. The kitchen provides direct access to the formal dining room and a cozy covered porch, too.

The first floor also has a formal living room, a home office that could be utilized as a playroom or den and a laundry room.

Upstairs, there are five spacious bedrooms, most of which provide an awe-inspiring view of the Atlantic Ocean, as well as access to a second-story deck, and there is a three-quarter bathroom.
