The best location! Walk right on to the sandy beach off the lovely patio! This is a unique property, as the home is on the sand of the Rio del Mar Beach and the views are breathtaking, as you barbecue and enjoy the ocean air on this beachfront location. Just perfect for family fun or special time away for a memorable vacation experience. The same families have been visiting our home for over 20 years and bringing the next generations for a truly memorable family tradition. This home is newly updated this year and full of character and charm! All the walls have custom Spanish-style plaster, custom moldings, paint washed beam ceilings, and custom maple doors to give the home a special beach atmosphere. There are large beautiful inset mirrors with wide molding trim to reflect the lovely artwork throughout the home. There are 3 charming bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The master king bedroom is large with full breathtaking ocean views, a balcony to relax and new furnishings and bedding. The two other bedrooms each have two sets of twin beds along with a newly remodeled spacious bathroom/shower upstairs. On the first level the custom kitchen has hand crafted custom seaside tiles and all brand new appliances to fit your cooking needs. The round dining table with wicker chairs is cozy for family dinners. The living room looks out to the gorgeous views of the ocean along with a cozy fireplace for the winter months.There is a bathroom/shower downstairs as well. For your convenience, there is a docking station, wireless internet, two DVD players and TV's upstairs and downstairs. See full virtual tour at cheshirerio's website. (property address: 266 Beach Dr)
