A New House with Turn-of-the-Century Style in Ocean City

by hookedonhouses on March 11, 2012

Whenever I see a builder incorporating old-house details into new construction, I want to cheer. This one in Ocean City, for example, was inspired by the classic turn-of-the-century vacation homes on the Jersey Shore.

It was built by Buck Custom Homes and is on the market for $2.799 million. Take a look!


The house is close to the beach, which is always a plus in my book. According to the listing: “The three story, 5000+ square foot home blends modern convenience and traditional style into the perfect beach house, truly a fine setting to create family memories.”

Looking into the dining room, which is painted black (correction: the designer tells me the color is actually a dark brown):

The woodwork is beautiful.

The glass doorknobs remind me of the ones we had in our old house when I was growing up:

There are 6 bedrooms and 6.5 baths. I love little round turret rooms like this one:

Looking into the kitchen:

Christine Droney of Show & Sell Home Staging decorated the house, and she’s the one who told me about it (thanks, Christine!).

The Spring green paint throughout much of the house is by Sherwin Williams, called “Sprout.”

The house has 4 porches in all, and 3 are on the back of the house:

The back door leads to a mudroom:

Like it? For more photos and information, check the listing and Buck Custom Homes.

P.S. Anyone else have trouble “springing ahead” this morning? I could have used that extra hour of sleep!
