When the future owners of a Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, retreat first toured the 1980s-style house, they weren't sure it was the right fit for their entertaining-centric lifestyle, but that all changed the moment they caught the breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean. The family reached out to designer Patrick Sutton and a talented design team. Forgoing anything too precious or prissy, Sutton developed a blueprint for the house that would take its cues from what drew the homeowners to the spot in the first place: its waterfront location.
