This 3-story oceanfront home in South Bethany will take your breath away. One of our cozier homes at 3,366 square feet, it features 4 bedrooms, 4 full baths, and 2 half baths. No detail was spared in designing this pet- and kid-friendly sanctuary.

The “transitional coastal” style merges traditional and contemporary features in this home. The neutral siding with black windows, black gas-lit lanterns, and cable railings give the exterior a modern edge. As Marnie likes to say, “the ocean is the show,” so she designed the interior to be neutral and calming, allowing the stunning ocean views to take center stage. The main living areas feature white and light wood tones, complemented by blue and black accents, creating a soothing backdrop that frames the ocean like a work of art. The fireplace surround is adorned with ribbon porcelain tile that mimics the look of wood, adding texture. Black-framed windows with clean lines and no grills provide a modern look, while window seats enhance the natural light.

The kitchen is a blend of style and functionality, featuring white oak cabinets and ceiling beams, beaded Ro Sham Beaux pendants, and arched doorways. A custom feeding alcove for the couple’s dogs includes a built-in pot filler for easy water bowl refills throughout the day.

Pets played a central role in this home’s design, with our first-ever “Catio” – a dedicated room for the cats. Positioned on the light-filled south side of the home, a sunning ledge beneath floor-to-ceiling windows allows the cats to lounge and nap in comfort. A dog wash station in the beach prep room, complete with custom penny tile playfully spelling out “WOOF,” adds a fun and functional touch. Durable, pet- and kid-proof luxury vinyl plank floors are installed throughout, softened with plush area rugs.

To ensure the home will accommodate them in the years ahead, we included aging-in-place features such as a ramp entrance, an elevator, and zero-threshold showers.

This thoughtfully designed oceanfront custom home truly captures the essence of coastal living while providing every modern convenience for family, friends, and pets.
