How incredible does it sound to have the ocean right in your backyard or close enough to walk to? We absolutely love the idea! To kick off warmer months we pulled together our top 5 beach houses - scattered along the east coast, these houses are in the perfect locations. They have so much to offer too, with spacious outdoor areas and organic details throughout we fell in love with a piece of each of them.

Built in 2014, this custom oceanfront home boasts charm and a fresh interior. Standing on some of Neptune’s tallest dunes it was constructed with solid cement block and hurricane proof windows.

Carrera marble and plank wood flooring cover the house throughout.
One of Avondale’s most beloved styles of houses is the Bungalow because of it’s quaint charm and historic qualities. A Bungalow is typified by having 1-2 stories and a low pitched roof. Perfect for entertaining or relaxing, the front porches usually stretches the width of the house, and the entryway opens right into the living room. These types of houses are usually an open floorpan and feature built-ins for better usage of small space. We chose our top 5 Bungalows in Avondale and here’s what we found!
