A breezy beach house with a coastal-cool edge

Article by homes+

This small house purchased in 2002 has been quadrupled in size and transformed into a dream home full of relaxed beach house decor.

When Bernadette Cross and husband Connor purchased this property in 2002, it was a tiny brick cottage with remnants of a 1970s renovation. As their family has grown, the home has too with the couple gutting the house and starting over. For the overall look, Bernadette wanted “something classic and timeless, but with a simple, coastal edge”.
