Beach Home Plans In Lewes, DE

Spacious Porches for Entertaining in Lewes DE

On the road van The finest beach home plans include spacious porches for both entertaining, relaxing, and taking in the wonderful ocean view. We found this to be so true when we traveled to Lewes, Delaware, aboard the Cape May-Lewes Ferry to photograph the magnificent coastal homes and beach houses.



We were impressed with their overall design and beauty - especially the porches. These homes ranged from very contemporary to almost Victorian in design and all had outdoor space to enjoy.

As a leisure home most beach house porches are casual and informal in design and usually have a nautical appeal. Like beach houses, coastal houses may also be found in the same category, however there are differences.

These type homes are prevalent in the mid-Atlantic and southeast Atlantic coasts. They are often shingle style homes, raised on high foundations for flood protection. Large porches are a prominent feature.

Coastal home design, especially in the Southeast, must include features to withstand tropical weather. Coastal properties usually fall into flood zones since getting close to water is the primary reason for building a coastal home.

You may also have setback and height restrictions; all of which will be considered in coastal home plans. Therefore, you need to know how these may affect the cost of your beach or coastal home.
