Seabrook's first oceanfront neighborhood, Northwest Glen, has been a staple destination since Seabrook's early beginnings. Ideally situated above the beach sand and ocean's edge, Northwest Glen has easy beach access yet is just minutes from Seabrook's town center. Here at the northern edge of town, a collection of uniquely designed oceanfront homes gaze out to the horizon and Point Grenville's haystack rocks.
Nestled into the wind-chiseled trees tucked within a cove of ferns, salal, and salmonberry, the location of our oceanfront homes is some of the most unique along the Washington coast. A brook carved along the bluff's base dissolves into the sand below.
Three nationally acclaimed oceanfront homes such as the Coastal Living Magazine Idea Home and the two Sunset Magazine Idea Homes, make Northwest Glen one of the premiere oceanfront neighborhoods on the West Coast.
Seabrook's waterfront homes vary subtly from the more urban beach houses a few blocks away in the heart of town, although they are close relatives. The vertically proportioned walls and tall windows in the town center help enclose and enliven the public spaces. At the ocean's edge the features are similar, where ocean views are maximized from each level with high picture windows, deep porches, and oceanfront balconies that blend into the endless expanse of the horizon.
Walking from Seabrook's town center through the neighborhoods and down to the ocean, one can sense these changing places and environments. Taking a short stroll, they move from an active, vibrant center out to nature within minutes. The oceanfront houses stand at that crucial edge between town and an enchanting natural environment.
Similarly, a range of natural environments are experienced walking from the ocean's edge, over the hard glistening sand to the soft dunes, through the beach grasses, up the salal-covered slopes, through the windswept trees and finally into the town. That first edge of houses looking up from the beach framed by the trees is designed with great care to settle gently into this breathtaking landscape.
The Oceanfront Esplanade, a broad path all along the bluffs' edges, surrounds the neighborhoods. Benches crafted from trees on site are grouped at points along the Esplanade for resting, chatting with friends, and gazing out to sea. The homes face the Esplanade with their front doors and living rooms. The Esplanade encircles the neighborhood, flows into a future footbridge spanning the southern glen, and leads down beach stairs to the dunes below.
In addition, the back entrances come from the lanes where cars are neatly tucked away in carriage houses and port cocheres. Each Oceanside House presents two inviting fronts to both the Esplanade and the lane. The entry lanes are well detailed and take on even greater importance as community spaces. They have been carefully designed with three small plazas that widen out from the intimate lanes themselves. Four additional walking paths radiate out between the houses to the surrounding Esplanade.
The architecture of Seabrook's Northwest Glen is inspired by some of the best coastal architecture from our region but offer the modern amenities you would expect. Each home is structurally engineered and built to withstand spectacular storms and coastal environment while you enjoy a front row seat.
Given our coast's limited offering of elevated land along the ocean, Seabrook's oceanfront homes combine fantastic views and vibrant community. Even within our town, there truly is no place like the oceanfront.
