Large White House with Wood Front Door and Grand Staircase

Since this beach house is raised to meet flood requirements -- as are many -- it's always nice to have a place to gather outside right outside of the living and kitchen spaces without coming down out of the residence. Designers used outdoor fabrics, furnishings, appliances and built-in cabinetry to withstand the sun, salt, sand, wind and rain that is common on beach house porches.
