27 Exotic Beach Homes

From Tree-Clad Beach Abodes to Ostentatious Oceanfront Homes

— November 11, 2011 — Art & Design
Imagine waking up facing the sun and watching the sunset every evening as fresh sea breeze sweeps your house; well, these beach homes offer the opportunity to turn that dream into a reality.

With some houses set in the heart of Cape Town and nothing but ocean-front views and fresh sea breeze dominating, this could be a dream house for many -- that includes myself. With houses like the First Crescent Villa that has a 270-degree breathtaking view from the transparent all-glass windows, one cannot help but hold their breath as they simply gaze at this gallery.

So if you need a trip away from work, this gallery will delight you with some interesting ideas.
