The HGTV Dream Home 2004 in St. Marys, Ga., is a fusion of coastal style and farmhouse architecture. The home is on stilts to keep it above flood level. A second-story balcony and upper watchtower have views of the beach.
This updated 1950's ranch home features a welcoming, expansive covered porch with cushioned outdoor furniture. A ceiling fan above keeps the air circulating while guests enjoy the view of the beautifully landscaped lawn.
An original sculpture formed from hand-thrown clay disks captures the calming energy of this home's coastal environment. A custom sectional sofa is a comfortable spot for lounging, napping or enjoying the ocean views.
Designer Ashley Yeates Lathrop created a peaceful guest suite for the homeowners' business and personal guests. To reflect the ocean views, she brings a soothing color palette into the space and then mixes cozy furniture with a few rustic pieces for a cottage look.
This master bathroom showcases the stunning ocean views by integrating windows, sliding doors and shutters into the available wall space around the room. A spacious shower even connects to the oceanfront patio, making it feel alfresco. To create this contemporary coastal look, designer Bruce Palmer uses copper, reclaimed wood and more modern pieces to form a resort-esque retreat. Design by Bruce Palmer.

With its wall of glass, this mod coastal sitting room feels almost suspended over the water. Mid-Century Modern furnishings create a cozy seating area with views of the outdoor dining room and the wide expanse of water beyond. A modern light fixture draws the eye without distracting from the spectacular view.
