While we realize it’s not exactly beach weather just yet, it will be—soon, even! Until then, we’ll settle for simply daydreaming about beachside jaunts—helped along by ogling a few amazing area beach properties. Over the next several weeks, we’ll indulge your summer fantasies by showcasing some of the area’s best seaside spots. Up first? An in-town escape in Rehoboth Beach designed by Hamilton Snowber Architects, which acts as a summer home for its Washington-based owners. We love the serene color palette and airy vibe. Check out the beach-town beauty in the slideshow.
