The House Designers have put together a collection of beach home plans from a select group of residential architects and designers that are best suited for waterfront living because of their generous porches, two-story design, open floor plans and abundance of large windows. In many cases, coastal home plans and beach home plans are built on pier foundations to prevent flooding and accommodate rising tides from being on a waterfront property.
The Vistas is one of the most popular beach home plans for homeowners with a waterfront property. Plenty of large windows ensure panoramic views from the kitchen, dining room and master bedroom. The open kitchen includes a large central island, perfect for light lunches and entertaining. The second floor boasts a guest room to house friends and guests, a cozy sitting area, and private bathroom. To see the actual floor plans for this home, click here.
Outside, a large covered balcony is perfect to enjoy the views. An unfinished daylight basement can be designed to double your living space.
The Bahama Breeze House Plan was designed as a dream beach home with spectacular views and outdoor living spaces. The designer drew his inspiration from the casual elegant resorts of the Caribbean. The front entry features a beautiful mahogany and gas lantern entrance that opens to a great room with wood beamed ceiling and huge 10’ x 18’ patio sliders that join the outside patio.
This two-story home is full of special features such as an elevator to the master suite and the bonus room floors as well as an optional car lift to convert the two-car garage into a three-car, perfect for your summer convertible. With a width of just under 77 feet and depth of 58 feet this home is perfect for smaller lots. View additional photographs of this beach home plan by clicking here.
