"I remember seeing the home's previous owner sitting in his rocking chair, observing the town's daily happenings from the porch." Now that she is the happy owner, she realizes more than ever that life in this attention-grabbing home is all about community—friends pop in for an impromptu barbecue; neighbors stop by to rinse off in the outdoor shower on their way back from the beach. "I can let my kids roam around here because everybody knows everybody," she says. "It's a really special place."
