Before the Coastal Living Magazine Ultimate Beach House opened on July 16, we asked our readers to share with us the “ultimate beach home” of their dreams!
We received plenty of original and inspiring entries that in many ways captured the facets of a timeless beach sanctuary similar to the Coastal Living Magazine Idea House and all the other homes around Seabrook. We even had our sales team drop by and provide an inspiration with their creative ideas!
While each and every beach home entry was unique and worthy of the grand prize, we had to pick one lucky winner to take home all the marbles!
So, without further ado, the Seabrook Blog is proud to announce the winner of the 2010 “Describe Your Ultimate Beach House” contest — Leisa!! Sincere congratulations from everyone at Seabrook, we hope you will enjoy your visit to the beach and your tour through the Ultimate Beach House.
Here is Leisa’s winning entry:
“My Ideal Beach House would be some where that the surf could be heard and the waves could be seen. It would have easy access to the beach, but be walking distance to town. It would have lots of windows, so there were plenty of opportunity to use natural lighting.
The main floor would include a flowing open area that contain living, eating, and kitchen areas that would be perfect for entertaining, but take advantage of the view of the shore too. There would also be a guest bedroom and mud/utility room and a 1/2 bath. The second floor would have 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a large sitting room with a huge picture window to watch the surf, somewhere that could be used for reading or crafts, with big comfy chairs. The 3rd floor would have a media room that would also have plenty of windows, and sleeper sofas for times when the guest room just isn’t enough. There would also be a 3/4 bathroom. The interior of the house would feature a peaceful beachy decorating scheme to compliment the views from the window.
Outside of the house there would a wrap-around porch accessed from french doors off of the living room. There would be lots of Adirondack chairs, a hammock, and a stone fireplace so that the outdoors could still be enjoyed in our cooler NW weather. There would also be a covered outdoor BBQ. A hot tub and outdoor shower, and covered walkway from the garage to the house would complete the amenities. The yard would be low maintenance with native vegetation.
Sounds a lot like a house that could easy be found right there at Seabrook, doesn’t It?”
It sure does Leisa! Just a reminder, here is the prize for the contest Leisa just won:
- 2 Seabrook Glass Floats
- 4 Tickets to the Ultimate Beach House at Seabrook
- Exclusive Tour of the Idea House!
