beachouse

There's just something about being next to the ocean that feels right.

We can't put our finger on what it is, but spending time in eyeshot of the ocean and only a few footsteps away from the sand makes us very happy people.

Owning a house on the beach is something we dream about, but for the time being we're city bound with only Hampstead Heath to satisfy the urge to swim in the wild...

These 18 houses are the perfect beach side home and have got us planning to get to a beach as quickly as possible, before the city eats us up!

When the view looks like this, why would you make the walls out of anything but glass?!

Modern design is the perfect match for sandy shores...

...But a more rustic design is equally as beautiful.

We would like our workspace to look like this please....

The perfect spot to read in the afternoon.

We love how this house is perfectly set within its environment.

Between the ocean and that bath, would you ever be out of the water?

For picture perfect breakfasts to start off the day.

Imagine having friends round for drinks in this house....

So. Jealous.

This quirky house looks like it could be made from the sand surrounding it.

beachouse13

We're not sure if we could keep our bedroom quite this tidy...

beachouse9

Ahhh. Anyone want to go in with us on buying a beach mansion?

beachouse5

Sit and watch the sunset.

The ocean, a balcony AND a breakfast bar?! Come on now...

We might not be living the beach life quite yet...

...But one day we'll wake up to this view too.
