Enjoyed by the same family and a multitude of its beach loving friends for over three decades, the circa 1972 oceanfront house evolved over time into a compound spread out on two lots totaling 1.2 acres fronting sand and sea. Main house is set up as two separate and almost identical spaces with living, dining, kitchen, utility, 3/1 and covered patio downstairs. Upstairs 3 bedrooms and 2 baths join open living, dining and kitchen along with 12′ x 44′ covered porch looking out to the ocean.

A third floor “lookout” sundeck is just the spot to greet the morning sun and watch the moon sparkle over the waves – the ultimate antidote to stress! In 1991 a 900SF detached garage was built with a 2/1 apartment above. Set on the south side, this welcome addition has an unobstructed view and a generous deck for outdoor living. The masonry “fort” adds another 864SF to the mix and it’s a rare thing to have such a solid flex building at the beach. A barn door makes it easy to move things in and out and the transom windows provide natural light. Stow your cars, fishing gear, bikes and boards and there’s still room for ping pong, pool or whatever you please.

All three buildings perch on the dune top and a long driveway adds another measure of privacy from A1A. All the living takes place on the ocean side and there’s an abundance of green space on either side of your dune walkover. A wide beach with soft sand and lapping waves waits at the other end inspiring daily walks with happy bare feet.

The main house doesn’t offer any of today’s desired features and appointments and you can decide whether to update or build something new according to your time line. The apartment makes a great HQ from which to oversee construction when you’re ready to start, and with a little effort and money, you can generate a steady income stream from vacationers while you plan your next move. 1.2 acres on the ocean, 2 great outbuildings, 5-10 minutes from most everything you need and want – sweet!
