What else would you do with a tired beach cottage from the 1950s, but swank it up? Mix three parts California style, two parts family friendly living, and one part ocean view, shake well and pour over crisp white walls and a dash of wood siding. Served chilled, over ice for a cool spin on the classic beach cottage. Here the living is easy and the ocean breeze is always swaying through the trees. When things cool down in the evening, just seek an intimate seat in the courtyard for a warm conversation with friends. Life's good. So is the architecture. Enjoy it.
