The coast holds a magical place in many of our hearts, and the hefty pull of the ocean is nearly impossible to resist. We at TMS Architects have designed numerous luxury beachfront properties — our architects and designers are constantly inspired to bring the beauty of the sea into the comfort of a gorgeous home.
In the words of one of our clients living in a shoreline home, “It feels as though you are on vacation all the time. Living near the sea means that everyday stresses drain more quickly.” We couldn’t agree more! Below, we’ll look at some of our favorite and most innovative oceanfront properties.
