The Classic Beach Houses
As the houses get closer to the beach, many have a more individual style that are more likely to take advantage of the environment – the views, breezes, the sound of the waves, a whiff of the salt air cologne – a splash at a time, and the best places to sit and watch. They have round turrets, and square towers, pyramid-like angles, bright colors and shapes, and some have unique artwork made a part of the house. Many have an external stairway that climbs to a roof platform or to individual floor balconies to view the surrounding area and beach front. And then there are the slanted roofs to avoid being seagull clam-bombed. There are some great beach house names like Xta Sea, Cardiac Rest, Sol Mate, Legal Ease, Bivalvia, Argonaut, and Looney Dunes. A wave of new names keeps coming.
