Stunning home offers ocean views from every room

Watch the waves crash against the rocky shore, view the seals basking in the sun or simply admire the sunrise over the vast horizon. With spectacular ocean views from every room the stunning architecturally designed home on Ocean Boulevard in income-tax-free Rye, NH is an amazing find. Just a short stroll from Wallis Sands beach, the pristine home has been expertly designed for the location and a contemporary luxurious oceanfront lifestyle.

Sitting high above the rocks on a large lush lot bordered by fragrant beach roses and stonewalls; the shingle-style home is a gem in the prized beachfront neighborhood. The private yard is pure perfection with verdant landscaping including a lush lawn, mature trees, blue stone walkways, a patio and an array of flowering plants that invite butterflies and birds.

The professional landscaping, weather-resistant exterior and fabulous architectural details of the home create a visual delight enhanced by the natural beauty of the seacoast.

The luxurious three-bedroom home has a sense of relaxed elegance. There are marvelous architectural details at every turn from the expansive full-length mahogany oceanfront-covered porch to a Carrara marble fireplace and red oak floors with Brazilian rosewood inlay, this gorgeous home is truly special.

Entering the large front foyers, a visitor is greeted by a striking bridal staircase with carved and tapered balusters. Straight ahead is a heart stopping view through to the ocean. The red oak floors gleam, the wide openings between rooms are accented by subtle custom moldings and there is an abundance of natural light. Formal columns provide visual definition, but allow for an open floor plan and incredible ocean views at every turn.

The expansive oceanfront living room and gracious dining room are superb for entertaining or everyday living. Multiple sets of French glass doors lead out to the full-length oceanfront covered mahogany porch, allowing for seamless indoor/outdoor living. Subtle architectural details accent the large space including a Carrara marble gas-log fireplace that is highlighted by a custom designed mantle and Brazilian rosewood inlay that adds a special touch to a beautiful hardwood floor.
