---- — Envision stepping out on to your private deck and taking in magnificent views of the ocean and coastline from beautiful Boars Head to Plaice Cove, being able to walk out your door and step across to the road to the smooth sands of North Beach and to enjoy this fabulous lifestyle in a brand-new home. Yes, this is possible with two new homes on Ocean Boulevard in Hampton’s desirable North Beach neighborhood. Located just steps from the beach, the new duplex offers two stunning, two-bedroom homes, each with a tandem two-car garage and multiple oceanfront decks.
The brand new homes, right across from an entrance to the beach, are a rare find in the popular Seacoast neighborhood. The Ocean Boulevard side offers each home two covered oceanfront decks; the other side is on a residential side street with additional off street parking. The new homes also feature great amenities including gas fireplaces; hardwood floors, sparkling new appliances and construction standards designed to weather hurricane force winds.
On the side street there is a thoughtful covered entry into a large foyer. The bright entry space has a tile floor to stand up to sandy feet, direct entry from the two-car tandem garage and a handsome hardwood staircase leading up to the main living level.
While warm sunlight, wonderful ocean views, hardwood floors and an open concept make the main living level a delight, the ability to open the glass door and step out onto the beachfront deck makes this an incredible space that feels as though it continues right to the horizon.
With the open concept, there are striking ocean views from the kitchen, dining room and living room. The oceanfront living room is anchored by a gas fireplace with marble surround and cleverly contains a handy built-in Murphy bed for additional guest space. The sunny dining room, with two large windows, links the living room to the gorgeous kitchen, creating great entertainment space.
The kitchen is a real pleasure with an array of custom cherry hardwood cabinets, a built-in desk, granite counters, shiny new stainless-steel appliances and a convenient dumb waiter that comes up from the garage. With the dumb waiter bringing up groceries is a breeze.
This level also features an attractive half bath and laundry room combination with a tile floor and graceful pedestal sink.
Up the angled hardwood staircase are two en-suite bedrooms connected by a hallway with a linen closet and an ingenious built-in bookcase.
The master bedroom suite, carpeted for cozy comfort, is a dream with glorious ocean views and a glass door out to a private carefree covered deck overlooking the sandy beach. The refreshing ocean breeze and the sound of the rolling surf create an unmatched ambiance for falling asleep. Imagine watching a golden sunrise over the ocean or sitting on your private deck stargazing on a warm summer evening.
The master suite has great closet space and a nice en-suite bath with a built-in granite-topped vanity, tile floor and an oversized shower.
The second en-suite bedroom is surprisingly spacious and sunny with large windows and a sizeable closet. The spacious tiled full bath is a delight with tub and built-in shelving for excellent storage.
The quality new homes include Andersen Windows, carefree siding, Trex decking, hurricane-ready construction, central air conditioning and efficient gas heat. There is great storage in the garage including space for surfboards.
Best of all is the beachfront lifestyle. Visualize walking along the beach year round. Imagine swimming and surfing all summer or simply stepping out on to your private oceanfront deck to appreciate the natural beauty of the ocean each and every day.
Hampton boasts 4 miles of sandy beaches, great surfing, marinas, the famous Hampton Boardwalk, world-renowned entertainment and some of the best seafood in the world. Beyond the summer fun, income-tax free Hampton is a year-round community of nearly 15,000 people who take great pride in their oceanfront town. It is convenient to major commuter routes and about an hour from Boston.
The homes are for sale individually or could be purchased together by a multi-generational family or siblings that desire a family oceanfront complex.
