Expensive American Beach Houses


26 Most Expensive American Beach Houses

Featuring the 26 most expensive beach houses in America. The current real estate recession doesn’t mean houses on the most desirable U.S. beaches aren’t still asking boom-style prices. Of course, as many home buyers and sellers are finding out these days, the asking price is often far higher than the selling price. One thing is pretty certain, once the economy recovers it’s a pretty good bet that prices for properties such as these will go even higher.
