This bright and modern coastal retreat in North Bethany is one of our most ambitious builds to date. While the home brings a fresh new twist to the neighborhood with the oceanside designed as a true glass house, the four-story beach house fits right in thanks to its classic pointed roofline.
Inspired by the California coast, Marnie’s vision for the 7,650-square-foot home was to create a contemporary house in a warm and coastal way that not only feels attractive, but also is welcoming. Clean, open and light-filled rooms are abundant with wall-to-wall glass windows and doors.
The gourmet kitchen is all about entertaining. Double porcelain countertops, multiple sinks and fridges, a butler’s pantry, and a 48-inch range make prepping snacks for guests a breeze. The main living areas feature a detailed cathedral ceiling and a two-story fireplace with linear surround made of an entire slab of porcelain, which looks like concrete for a modern take.
The fourth floor is dedicated entirely to the primary suite and open ensuite bathroom, which features floor-to-ceiling porcelain, a double slipper tub, zero-entry shower, and views of the Delaware coastline. Privacy concerns are no problem here as we built in remote-controlled blinds that quickly descend with the touch of a button.
