House near the beach

Looking at the picture of a house near the beach is spectacular. Everyone wants to have a dream that turns to reality. Of course not so near that shoreline to avoid floods just in case water increases or because of other disasters like tsunami. Also to avoid toxic materials that can harm the water and other species. A house made of granite is better than of wood or any other type of materials to protect the house from damages not only with flood but with too much exposure to sunlight.
