Live in this low-profile home, and the beach is quite literally your backyard. Skip down a few stairs from the wraparound deck, then amble up and over a dune and down to the shore, no sandals needed. When it’s time to make the sandy trek back home, you can whip up some lunch and still watch the waves crash from the windows.

Pine ceilings create a vaulted canopy over a central living area, spacious enough for a family-sized dining table, a space for lounging, and a cute wooden kitchen with a four-person breakfast bar. Ceiling beams and high-up perches provide ample opportunity for quirky decor, be it a colorful light fixture or found pieces of sea glass or seashells.

In the next room, laying out under the ceiling fan in the sunroom leafing through a book is a carefree way to pass an afternoon—if you’re not down at the beach, that is.
