Pool & Deck by the Waterside

With a view like this, you'll want to spend as much time as possible outdoors. A sleek pool with lounge seating is a perfect place to cool down, while the deck can be used through spring, summer and fall.

Modern Wood Exterior and Front Door

Cinnamon-colored wood slats cover the exterior of the modern home, a pretty contrast to the gray metal roof. A wide patio makes the entry friendly and welcoming.

Lawn With Tire Track Pavers

Tiny, square-shaped pavers buried in the grass have the whimsical effect of tire tracks leading down to the water's edge.

Bright and Stylish Living Room

Wide, open windows and glass doors fill the living room with ample natural light. A light blue sectional and driftwood-based coffee table bring in hints of coastal style.

Bright, Open Living Spaces

Enamored with contemporary design, the shell of a single-family ranch was renovated to be the home of their dreams. Living by the water, the design was harmonious with a vision of crisp horizontal lines, a consistent design feature carried through the exterior to the interior. An open floor plan focuses on comfort and luxurious essentials.

Sleek, Open Kitchen

The kitchen features two islands, with one for prepping and the other for dining. Floating shelves display dishware in elegant fashion.

White Modern Kitchen With Wood Island

In this sleek kitchen, wood shelves and a wood island soften the starkness of the minimalist modern design. Keeping the items on the open shelves within the same color palette helps the display from looking cluttered.

Waterside Dining Room

Overlooking the water, the dining room is a peaceful spot to gather with friends and family.

Bright & Open Work Space

Large windows allow plenty of light to enter this open work space. A wood pallet divider separates the living spaces.

Bedroom at Waterside Retreat

Expansive windows and a sliding glass door reveal a stunning waterfront view from the bedroom.

White Powder Room Vanity With Globe Sconce

Oversized elements in a small bathroom can have a strikingly stylish effect. Here, the sconce does the trick; its graceful, rounded shape keeps it from being too blunt and overwhelming.

Shower With Gray Tile Backsplash

To add depth to the light neutral palette of the bathroom, textured tiles in varying shades of gray are used in the shower.

Deck With Ocean View

In a setting this gorgeous, you want to use the outside spaces just as much as the interior ones. Sliding glass doors on multiple sides of the home let the deck be a second living room.

Modern Exterior and Backyard

The backyard features wide expanses of green lawn, patios and a deck that wraps around the upper level.

Backyard and Pool at Night

At night, the backyard is even more magical with lights giving the pool an ethereal glow and the sunset reflecting off the ocean. Enjoy the view poolside or from the balcony.

Waterfront Backyard With Pool and Lawn

The lawn slopes down directly to the ocean. And there's that gorgeous pool. Yes, this is a backyard worth dreaming about.

Waterfront Backyard With Pool

In the middle of the backyard, a serene swimming pool echoes the stretch of open water in the background. Green lawns and trees are so lush and inviting.
