Ocean Cottage

Located one and a half blocks from the ocean, this house is a great example of Bruce's design talent. It is on a Bethany Beach lot which is forty feet wide limiting the house width to 26". The first floor living area is perfect for gathering around the pot-belly fireplace to share times with friends and family. Floor to ceiling bead board defines the fireplace and mantle. The dining room features an attractive built in book case and break front. It is separated from the custom kitchen by custom special decorative columns. A first floor home office can double as a bedroom if needed. The second floor master suite has an unobstructed view of the ocean. The master's private deck has all day sun as well as an ocean view. The second floor has two large guest bedrooms, one of which has a private deck with an ocean view. In 2003 the screen porch located on the front was converted into a Florida room which the owners enjoy year round. This home was featured in the 2000 Beach and Bay Cottage tour.
