Our beach house is really just a cottage, built way back at the turn of the last century. Up until a few years ago, most cottages were similar in that they were not winterized and were considerably older structures. Now? Not so much. It takes away a little of the charm for me (no more single story cabins with knotty pine paneling!), but some of these houses sure are purty to look at:
What I love about this house is that obviously, beyond being gorgeous, it has an unobstructed view of the ocean. I also love how they allowed the beautiful wildflowers to just grow on their (side) yard. You may not know this about me (but it will soon be clear), I am a sl*t for grey wood shingles and white trim. And lastly, my very favorite part? That coral red door! I die.
Not too shabby, huh? One day I would like to own a house with this view:
