Sand, surf and sun


Does a short walk to the beach, surfing, kayaking or strolling on the sand sound good? If so, you must see this four-bedroom, four-bath home with its sunny patio where you can enjoy dining, relaxing and quiet conversations. Built in 1977, the home was designed by the architect for Kraft Foods for his family. Unassuming from the street, it is warm and welcoming as you enter. The living room and dining room open to the patio. Having the kitchen open to the dining room gives a great-room feel. Three bedrooms are downstairs — with one now used as a den — and the master is upstairs. There’s also an attached garage.
