I am dreaming of white weatherboard cottage within walking distance of the beach. My husband and I spend summer evenings walking around picking out our favourite beach houses. All we have to do now is wait patiently for one to come on the market. They are like hen's teeth so it will be years before we find what we want. In the interim, I can drool over pretty white beach houses that others having lovely restored and decorated. Here a few examples of houses full of character in charm in all shades of white.
