Dreaming of customizing your perfect beach house? 692 Ocean Breeze Walk gives you that opportunity! There are endless possibilities at this family home in Ocean Beach. This spacious home, currently listed for $775,000, is an excellent example of a home that you can make your own. Ideally located, 692 Ocean Breeze is just 4 houses from the beach! The home is elevated with an upgraded foundation. Situated on a 50’ x 84’ lot, 692 Ocean Breeze Walk is the perfect opportunity to turn your dreams into reality.
With a large open living and dining area and a fully enclosed porch, 692 Ocean Breeze offer a lot of space to work with. We reimagined the first floor of this home, eliminating the storage room at the rear of the house to create a fabulous chef’s kitchen with large glass sliding doors to the deck. In our proposed floor plan, we demolished the wall where the current stove is to create ample storage space and a large island. By removing the walls to the kitchen to the left of the dining room, this offers a completely open first floor layout and great indoor/outdoor flow, making entertaining a breeze. By adding large glass sliding doors to the deck, the massive great room is flooded with light and seamless indoor/outdoor flow is acheived. You can see an illustration of this renovation idea below in the proposed 1st Floor Plan.
With 5 bedrooms, the second level of the home already offers plenty of bedroom space for your family and guests. The oversized bedroom occupying the entire front of the house presents the perfect opportunity to create a luxurious master suite, complete with a walk-in closet and a private en-suite bathroom. The proposed floor plans below illustrates how you could lay out a new master suite in the space, with just minor modifications to the existing space plan.
These are just a few ideas of how to maximize the features of this ideally located home. One of the best reasons to renovate a home is to get the opportunity to customize it to your exact needs, specifications, and tastes. It is also a great opportunity to build equity in a property, as well planned improvements can increase the property's value in excess of their cost.
