Located on the north end of Topsail Island, North Topsail Beach is a barrier island with the Atlantic on one side and the Intra Coastal Waterway on the other. Our home has its' own beach on the ocean. Since North Topsail is primarily residential, the beaches are seldom crowded.
In the summer, our weather is usually about 10 degrees cooler than the mainland because of those off shore breezes.
Since we are only a 2 minute drive to the bridge to the mainland, grocery and other shopping and restaurants are only about a 7 minute drive.
The home was custom built by the owner in 2007. It has been elegantly and tastefully furnished and outfitted.
The entire house has been professionally decorated and it is beautiful.
The first floor has 4 bedrooms with 3 baths, a laundry room and an outside shower w/change room. There are 2 queen size bedrooms with baths on this floor, one bedroom with twin beds(converts to a couch)with a TV/DVD, and a bunk room that sleeps 6.
The second floor has a king master suite with bath, TV/DVD & private balcony. Also, on the second floor is the great room, kitchen, dining areas, 45' flat screen TV/DVD, fireplace, those incredible views, wrap around decks, outdoor gas grill, and a half bath.
The 3rd floor is the penthouse suite with TV/DVD & large private deck & fabulous water views.
All the bathrooms have custom tile, white marble sinks and vanities, and exhaust fans. 2 of the bathrooms(2nd & 3rd floors) have custom glass shower doors. All of the bathroom and bedroom doors are solid wood to cut down on noise transference. There is a window in the penthouse suite shower from which you can watch the boats sail up the Intra Coastal Waterway.
A truly stunning ocean front masterpiece, combining the practical and dramatic. This duplex gives the curb appearance of a large single family home.
Each side provides 2,500 sq ft of living area + 1000 sq ft of decks & balconies with fabulous water views. Each side has a large 2 car garage & plenty of room for your extras. There is a dumbwaiter to take luggage & groceries from the garage level to the 1st & 2nd floors.
Besides having great curb side appeal and architectural beauty, it is the only house where all the bedrooms, because of unique side balconies and decks, have both an ocean view and an intracoastal waterway view. These private balconies also provide a great place for some quiet time.
All the walls, ceilings, closets, and stairways are insulated to cut down on noise transference.
This is a fully equipped luxury property. Come stay with us and we know you will want to come back again and again.
Paulette,I can’t tell you how wonderful your home was. It was so accommodating, warm and homey. The pictures on the website just doesn’t do it justice. It is easy to see that this house was built with love and thoughtfulness. The kitchen was well used this weekend as we cooked lots of Cajun food. I loved all of the upgraded appliances and can’t just say enough about the granite bar and countertops. We made amazing memories there this weekend. Thank you for making this sad time a little easier with a home that felt like “home”.We hope to be able to rent again when my son returns from Afghanistan.God Bless and Thank youTracye
North Shore Country Club is less than a 5 minute drive from the house. This 4 star golf course is open to the public.
The town park with fishing, basketball, horseshoes, tennis (2 courts w/night lights), and enclosed children's playground is a 5 minute walk from the house.
Bring your bike or rent one and travel the separate bike path which passes in front of the house.
The Seaview, longest fishing pier on the East Coast, is a leisurely 20 minute walk down the beach or a 2 minute drive. You can rent fishing gear and buy bait. They will cook your catch! They also have a great little restaurant(there's a lunch special every day).
Good activity for one day- get your group together for a walk down the beach. Collect sea shells. Stop at the Seaview for lunch or brunch. Pay $1, and walk the pier to see how the fishermen are doing.
Visit the very unique Turtle Hospital. A big loggerhead deposited 100+ eggs on our private beach last year.
Go surfing. Our beach is a popular surf spot.
Bring your surfcaster (or rent one at the Seaview) and fish off our private beach for dinner.
Drive to Wilmington and tour several of the beautiful plantation homes. Enjoy a meal at one of the restaurants on the river and then enjoy a horse drawn carriage ride.
Visit Grants Fish and see the pet alligator while buying fresh local shellfish or fish to bring home to cook.
At sunset, gather for drinks on our 3rd floor deck to watch magnificent sunsets over the Intra Coastal Waterway.
At night, sit out on the bench on the dune crossover and watch the moonbeam or see how many stars you can count.
Sit on the beach, listen to the rhythmic sounds of the shore break, dig your toes in to the sand, and read that book you've been wanting to read. Or, watch the precision formations of the pelicans overhead. Or, take a nap!
