Is there anything more classic than a fabulous cedar shake beach house? We don’t think so! 

Westport, Connecticut beach house foyer

This stunning Westport, Connecticut beach house by Austin Patterson Disston Architects is just the kind of place that would be perfect for Spring Break!

Well, a very, very sophisticated Spring Break!

Nothing says “beach” like a gorgeous natural fiber rug. And a roaring fire makes this beach house perfect for year round relaxation and fun.

Every part of this house is clean, crisp and has the feeling of a chic escape.

Nothing adds a casual, put-your-sandy-feet-up feel quite like a slipcover. It makes for easy clean up at the end of the season too!

Westport, Connecticut beach house kitchen

This sleek countertop is reminiscent of the sand outside the door. A recessed sink makes cleaning a breeze–and entertaining a cinch!

Speaking of entertaining… This is such a well-stocked bar! Everyone needs simple, beautiful barware.

Open shelving lends to the perfectly undone vibe of the beach house. Earth tones are a perfect fit.

Wood paneling is a necessity for a beach house! It juxtaposes beautifully with this fabulous tub and creates a totally custom look.

An outdoor shower is the perfect finishing touch for this incredible home. And the kayak? Icing on the cake! With Spring Break right around the corner, do you have plans?

HGTV Dream Home

Dream home. They aren’t words we use lightly. And we don’t use them often. But when we do… We mean it! If you’ve followed us for a long time, you know that we are pretty much obsessed with all that is Patrick Ahearn (two of our favorites here, and here).   And this HGTV Dream Home is no exception. Take a peek inside and stroll around the grounds. And maybe dream just a little!
