---- — 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.

A laundry closet is discreetly tucked in by the deck entrance, ready to capture sandy towels after a day at the beach. The master bedroom suite is spacious with good closet space and a tiled en-suite bath. There are two other bright bedrooms on the main living level and a very nice full bath.

The unique floor plan allows for a separate entrance to the beach-level guest quarters, making this a great beach house, an income property or a combination of both.

The beach-level guest quarters are a real bonus in the popular oceanfront neighborhood. With a separate entrance, this fabulous living space, including a kitchenette, fireplaced great room and bedroom, is self-contained.

Overall this is a beautiful year-round beach house in an outstanding location with great amenities including a two-car garage and additional parking for at least four cars (unheard of on the beachfront). There is public water and sewer, natural gas heat and cooking, and even central vacuum.

The location is sweet, with the soft sands of North Beach just steps from the front door, great surfing, marinas, the famous Hampton Boardwalk, world-renowned entertainment and some of the best seafood available anywhere.

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. The home is convenient to sales tax-free shopping; major commuter routes; and is only about an hour from Boston.
