Beach houses are famous for being places where the outside and inside dissolve into each other. Spaces flow easily and seamlessly together so that living rooms become decks, kitchens drift outside to outdoor barbecues, bathrooms extend to outdoor showers, and wraparound verandas extend from bedrooms via romantic, colonial-style shutters -- the most seductive way of persuading you to wander out of your bedroom onto the deck and down to the sea before breakfast has even been thought of. Open floor plans also promote conversation and a languid, easy style of living: think of the timeless appeal of a deck, inspiring cocktails or card games late into the night while the surf pounds the distant beach.
Coast celebrates the beauty of the humble beach house. Revealing some of the most extraordinary homes along the Atlantic seaboard, from historic sea captains houses, weekend cottages and grand architectural treasures to contemporary escapes, seaside hideaways, and glamorous getaways, it is a selection of America s finest beach houses built or designed over the past two decades by some of the country s most renowned names.
A feast for beach lovers, architects, interior designers and anyone who just loves escaping to the coast, it is a tribute to seaside shelters, grand and small.
