About this Project

Recently built and designed by @marnieoursler, this 7,600-square-foot modern coastal home is located oceanfront in Bethany Beach, DE(Next Home Design Magazine Issue!). Inspired by modern California design, the four story beach house fits right in along the Delaware coast thanks to its more old fashioned pointed roofline. To capture every ounce of ocean view, the back of the home features wall to wall windows that leads to an additional 1,400 sq feet of deck space. If you love modern coastal design, this home will leave you dreaming of beach house living.
