Purchasing the unique pie shaped lot adjacent to the beach in a North Bethany community was an easy decision for the owners since she had spent many happy summers in her aunt’s

vacation home just around the corner.

With a lifelong love of Scandinavian design, the couple were quickly drawn to the contemporary styling of a local architect and a designer. They were able to create a modern uncluttered decor that complements the clean lines of the three story 5 bedroom home. Bold polished black concrete floors in the entry and on the living room accent wall serve as a counterbalance to the abundant natural light streaming from the translucent glass stairwell and floor to ceiling windows on each level.

Custom white oak flooring and woodwork provide character and warmth in every space while a thoughtfully designed layout offers direct access to the exterior from all four lower level guest rooms. A cohesive blend of the creativity and artistry of architect, designer and homeowners has resulted in a stunningly beautiful family vacation home that captures oblique ocean views from multiple angles.
