    PROS Half a block from the ocean, this newly built house replaced a teardown. Enter into a big open space that holds the kitchen, with stone counters and an island, plus the dining and living areas. Sliding doors lead to a deck and double lot out back. Two bedrooms and a full bath are also on the first floor. Upstairs, the master suite has a deck overlooking the Atlantic, walk-in closet, and ocean-view bathroom with a step-in shower, marble double sink, and soaking tub. Two more carpeted bedrooms share a full bath. The third floor holds a large, carpeted bonus room with a balcony. Efficient systems include radiant heat throughout, tankless hot water, and central air. CONS No garage or basement, so not much storage.
