House of the Week: $4.8 million for a summery new home in the Beach
The place: A two-storey Cape Cod–inspired house a few minutes’ walk away from the Balmy Beach waterfront.
The history: The house was completed earlier this year by Magnum Opus Group, who built it for a client. The beachy aesthetic is expressed through a limestone exterior, cedar roof, and white oak floors. Inside, it’s all clean lines, white walls, and marble accents.
Big selling point: Not only is the house just minutes from the beach and boardwalk, it also has an in-ground saltwater pool complete with a waterfall.
Possible deal breaker: While the house may be perfectly located for the summer months, a lengthy winter could mean the owner’s beach time will be as short as it is sweet.
