With all of summer stretching out in front of them, Washington-area residents can focus a little more on beach vacations and a little less on political skirmishes. Battling beach traffic, a perennial summertime issue, may be less of a problem for the privileged few who own a beach home where they can live for the entire season or even year-round.

Homes within walking distance of a beach are rare finds, and even more unusual is finding a new single-family home within steps of the sand.

NVHomes is building luxurious homes at Fenwick Shores, located on the ocean block at Route 54 and Coastal Highway in Fenwick Island, Del.

Limited to just six homes — of which one has already been sold — Fenwick Shores will provide homes with space for family and friends to gather in comfort and style.

The homes have more than 3,000 finished square feet of living space, a two-car garage and a three-level front porch to maximize outdoor enjoyment.

The remaining five homes are base-priced from $1,585,940 to $1,708,190. All the homes include an outdoor shower, a gas fireplace, ceramic-tile floors, and a kitchen with maple cabinets and granite counters. Each has Hardiplank fiber cement siding and TimberTech composite decking.

The Cape Hatteras model’s main entrance on the lower level is off the front porch into a foyer with an art niche and a closet. Adjacent to the foyer are a full bath with a shower and a bonus room that can be used for a home office, a play area or even a guest room.

This level can also be accessed from the two-car garage and from a door adjacent to the outdoor shower. An additional storage area is next to the shower.

A staircase along one side of the home is open to all three levels and includes windows along the stairwell wall to add light to the home.

The main level has a great room with access to the second level of the front porch, a gas fireplace and multiple windows. The adjacent kitchen includes a breakfast bar around the island and an octagonal opening to the upper level.

At the back of the main level is the formal dining room, a large space with a wall of windows on one side and an additional window on the opposite wall.

The main level also includes a ceramic-tiled hall leading to a walk-in pantry, a powder room and a laundry room with a window.

The upper level also includes a front porch accessible from the master bedroom and another bedroom. In the center of the hall on the upper level is an octagonal opening to the main level and the attic level.

The master suite has a tray ceiling; a walk-in closet; and a bath with a double-sink vanity, a shower with a seat and an oval tub with an adjacent window. This level has three more bedrooms and a full bath with a double-sink vanity.

Buyers can also add a fourth finished level, which includes an attic loft area, a fifth bedroom, a full bath with a shower and a balcony off the attic. This level has an octagonal skylight, which fills the home with light on the upper and main levels.
