The shining expanse of the Atlantic stretches far and wide just off this home’s balcony. With the waves this close, you won’t take even a minute of vacation for granted. Bring your coffee and your favorite book into the sunroom, or admire the panoramic view from your deck—both activities are perfect precursors to a day on the shore, just steps away.
