Dreaming of an amazing beachside retreat? Take a look at these stunning seaside properties

It may be peak holiday season, but we’re stuck in the grey and drizzling UK imagining the perfect dream location. A beautiful beach house is top of our wish list. Here a Housetohome we’ve decided to collate our top pick of idyllic seaside retreats. From New York to Cornwall, these stunning properties are sure to inspire (even if we’ve got no hope of ever visiting them) but we can but, folks….

1. Country charm

This amazing Gallic-inspired home in Kent is the perfect rustic retreat. Inside, exposed brickwork, oak flooring and a farmhouse kitchen add to it’s country charm

2. All things bright and beautiful

The interior of this colourful beach house in Montauk, New York is bold, bright and beautiful. From a vibrant red dining room to a surf-themed snug (complete with wall mural), this home is full of surprises. Definitely on our wish list.

3. Nature’s beauty

This stunning South African home is designed to mirror the natural landscape that surroundings it. Covered in eco-friendly eucalyptus lattes (which have also been used to create the statement awnings) this home is truly stunning both outside and inside. The terrace complete with built-in seating area features breathtaking views over the beach.

4. Seattle scene

This newly designed family home near Seattle, Washington is not your average beach house. Spread over three levels, the interior features a mix of colourful wallpapers, fabrics and feature walls. The large open-plan living space complete with pool table definite gets our vote. Love it!

The stone cottage in Cornwall was built in the late 1800s and features stunning views over the town’s fishing port. With a simple country interior and a well-designed outdoor seating area (where the owners can enjoy the amazing vista), this Cornish cottage is high on our list of dream homes.
