The Ocean View Residence is a five bedroom three and a half bathroom new home built on a residential street two blocks west of the Atlantic Ocean in Bethany Beach, Delaware. From the beginning, the owners wanted a modern, sustainable and fun beach house where they could spend their summers with their two daughters and frequent guests.

 

The home was designed to balance the owners’ desire for a modern beach house while still belonging to and enhancing the established neighborhood of original 1 1/2 - 2 story cottages and newer 3 story homes.  The gabled front façade and Cape Code proportions help the home fit in with the neighborhood while the juxtaposed sloping roofs, stainless steel cable railings and bold color scheme help the home feel modern and fun.
