A beautiful updated kitchen with granite counters and stainless-steel appliances masks the age of this 1,677-square-foot Colonial, but the charming living room fireplace and refinished wood floors give it away. A block from the ocean, this home has a backyard with an outdoor shower to help you get ready for that après-beach party. This home requires flood insurance.

This 3,100-square-foot Victorian, updated throughout in 2012, has water views on all three levels, a large master bedroom with a private balcony overlooking the bay, and a swoon-worthy wraparound porch — complete with swing — from which to lazily inhale the ocean air. Flood insurance is not required.
