Can you picture yourself living on the beach? The soft powdery sand swept in swirls beneath your porch with the lullaby of the ocean waves singing you to sleep each night. Life on the beach can feel like a never ending vacation. There is a wealth of reasons a coastal home is one of the most beautiful residential retreats. Most feature their own tropical design and come in an array of exterior colors from coral, soft blue to even yellow. If you take a drive up and down the coast, you will see a variety of magnificent beach homes. Beach style décor is typical for these homes. You will notice lots of natural light flowing throughout the home and plenty of windows.
