'Scary' beach house that sits directly on the sand on sale for $1million
We get the appeal of a house that’s close to the shore.
But this particular property has been accused of taking that selling point a touch too far.
Called the Summer Wind Beach House, the three-bedroom house sits directly on the sand of a beach in Scituate, Massachusetts.
That means it’s right by the sea, leading to people calling it ‘scary’ and ‘risky’.
It’s now on sale for $929,999.
When the property was shared on the Zillow Gone Wild Instagram account, it attracted a lot of comments from people worried about its safety.
One person said they hoped the house ‘also works as a boat’, while another described it as ‘nice until it slides away’.
‘I’m no God fearing woman, but I think the bible mentioned something about building a house on sand,’ said one woman.
We can see why they’re concerned, but it turns out the house is fairly sturdy.
Built in 1979, it’s still standing strong on its stilts decades on – and there are other homes built nearby on the beach.
The house, which spans 1,674 sq ft and sits on nearly an acre of private oceanfront space between Egypt Beach and Mann Hill Beach, is described as offering ‘a breathtakingly beautiful view’.
The Zillow listing reads: ‘Welcome to the Summer Wind beach house – nearly an acre of private ocean front property located between Egypt + Mann Hill Beach.
‘From sunrise to sunset come enjoy this breathtakingly beautiful view of the Ocean.
‘Walk thru the front door to panoramic views of the water or step on to your deck and feel that ocean breeze.
‘This house was tastefully renovated – from the spectacular kitchen, to the shiplap walls, and stunning light fixtures this house has it all.
‘This home features an open floor plan with a full bath and master bedroom on first floor and sliders on to deck and upstairs features two bedrooms and another full bath.
‘Don’t miss the opportunity to own the beach house of your dreams.’
The listing has been live for 21 days, but has had more than 29,000 views – so we reckon it might get snapped up quickly.
Once you get over the tide-related fear, it could be a lovely place to live.
Picture it: you get out of bed, take a few steps, and you’re in the sea. Dreamy.
