    Cool oceanfront

    Hi,

    Can I say: "They all have an oceanfront house with swimming pool and tennis court" Can I a also say: "ocean-front" instead of "oceanfront"?

    Default Re: oceanfront

    I'm not familiar with it in BrE, and would expect to hear e.g. "a house on the sea front"; but "ocean-front" seems quite common in US advertising, etc.

    Best wishes,

    MrP
