Serenity, style and a sensational location in North Hampton

Serenity, style and a sensational location add up to perfection for the five-bedroom, four-bath Arts & Crafts style home in the desirable North Hampton beachfront neighborhood. A rarity for coastal living, this property offers an expansive private location with a deeded right of way to the beach and a home that is as beautiful as any in design magazines.

From the moment a visitor approaches along the white seashelled drive it becomes obvious that this is a truly special property. The sound of the surf mixes with the perfume from colorful flowers and the salty tang of the ocean air. Tall mature trees are accented with professional landscaping including brilliant perennial gardens. A grassy lawn provides a verdant carpet leading to the stunning home.

The gambrel home is accented with fine Arts & Crafts details while two decks, one with a swim spa, link the indoor and outdoor spaces, for a fabulous beachouse lifestyle.

The interior of the home is a masterpiece of design that combines great style, delicate details and fine craftsmanship to create a refreshing contemporary living space.

The main foyer is spacious and welcoming with attractive tiles, wainscoting, extensive storage and direct entry from the two-car garage. An antique door with an exquisite stained glass panel heralds the extraordinary details inside.

A sunny sitting room with a fabulous two-sided fireplace, hardwood floors and large windows provides an excellent transition into the home. A handsome half bath is thoughtfully located next door.

The main living space is breathtaking, with an open concept that also makes both it practical for everyday life and great for entertaining. The large dining room with glass doors out to the deck is wide open to the state-of-the-art kitchen. A built-in bar connects the dining area to a lovely room with built in cabinetry, seating and superb views. It would be a pleasure to enjoy breakfast by the windows on a sunny morning or to step outside onto the deck and sip cocktails at sunset. The fireplace, discreetly accented with beach glass, adds balance to the open space.
