Hampton home offers front row seat on North Beach

Open house today from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Golden sunrises, pink sunsets and shimmering surf: This fabulous, four-bedroom oceanfront home in Hampton offers them all and so much more. Located at 545 Ocean Boulevard directly across from peaceful North Beach and overlooking Boars Head, this completely renovated property has spectacular ocean views on one side and magnificent marsh views on the other.

Sit on the covered front porch and enjoy the refreshing ocean breeze, or relax on the private back patio and watch the colorful fireworks burst over the marsh. Swim, surf, or simply stroll along the sandy beach; you can take your pick at this location.

The carefree covered front porch is pure delight, with plenty of relaxation space and heart-stopping views of the ocean. It offers a front row seat on the beach, along with great character including stately columns and a bead-board ceiling. This charming porch sets the tone for the lovely interior.

The open-concept floor plan on the main living level maximizes ocean and marsh views, with oversized windows and glass doors that fill the home with natural light and frame some of the nicest views in this desirable Seacoast neighborhood.

A brick fireplace perfectly balances the openness of the space, anchoring the large living room. An enormous picture widow embraces the ocean view and the hardwood floors gleam. The dining room is wide open to the living room, allowing for sensational beachfront views on one side and serene marsh views on the other.

The kitchen is a treat with hardwood cabinets, granite counters, a center island, stainless steel appliances and the glass doors that lead out to a large and very private marsh front deck. It is a great entertainment space and makes it seamless to prep in the kitchen. You can cook on a gas grill and dine al fresco under the stars.
