Bald Head Island house description

Dalwhinnie Cottage, Killegray Ridge, Bald Head Island, North Carolina, is a bright, airy, whimsical, three story lantern oceanfront beach house facing South Beach with direct beach access by boardwalk to the ocean and reversed living area on the second floor which offers spectacular views of the ocean.

The ocean views from this cottage are incredible - on a clear day you can see forever. The cottage has over 50 windows and glass doors, offering views from every vantage point which are ever changing with the sun, clouds, rain, fog and wind. From the windows flanking the East side of the cottage is a view of the point of Cape Fear with the waves on East Beach falling on the Cape, and beyond onto the Frying Pan Shoals.

Directly in front of the house is South Beach w/the clear vista of the ocean with dolphins frolicking and pelicans diving for fish, waves lapping towards the front of the cottage and ships on the horizon entering Cape Fear River. Sunrise can be enjoyed on the east side of the cottage from all 4 bedrooms; sunsets from the oceanfront exposure of the cottage during fall, winter & spring months, as well as from the tall windows flanking the west side of the house, and most certainly, from the third floor west windows during summer months. Views do not end at sunset. We have no smog or city lights to hide the moon, stars, even the space station!

Environment: Dalwhinnie is the last cottage in Killegray Ridge on the ocean, immediately next to Braemar within sight of Cape Fear. A boardwalk extends directly from the oceanfront porch of Dalwhinnie to the beach access. There is a vacant oceanfront lot in Braemar next to Dalwhinnie on the east side of the cottage. The location affords privacy to its guests - living exposures focus on the ocean and the uncrowded beaches. The street entrance to the house is on a cul de sac off of South Beach Wynd.

The extensive boardwalk system in front of Dalwhinnie extends west thru Killegray Ridge into Flora’s Bluff - perfect for walking and play. There are 14 miles of beaches, never crowded, waiting for you to step onto, directly in front of Dalwhinnie. South Beach begins at the Point of Cape Fear and ends at the west end of the island where the ocean meets the Cape Fear River.

Dalwhinnie is the perfect place for families with children or four couples, for families renting multiple houses for weddings or reunions or for a quiet get away for one couple. Each master suite -first floor king bedroom and crofter - offer privacy. A queen sized sleeper sofa is on the second floor with half-bath access. All four bedrooms have a private bath.

Floor plan: First Floor includes nine-foot ceilings with foyer; Master Bedroom with King size bed and private bathroom with direct access to the oceanfront rocking chair porch; a second bedroom with 2 double beds & private bathroom has direct access to the screened porch.

Second Floor has high vaulted, beamed, 14-foot ceilings and hosts the living-dining-kitchen area with an oceanfront deck facing south and oceanside deck facing east, and a half-bath.

Third Floor is our whimsical lantern room with vaulted ceiling which includes two twin beds which can be converted to a king, with a window surround facing east, south, and west; and bathroom facing north.

Crofter has 14-foot vaulted ceiling with view of South Beach from window over bed and from deck.

Housekeeping and Maintenance: Dalwhinnie is owned and managed by its owners, and is cared for by the same housekeeper and houseman every week. The cottage is cleaned for your arrival. Linens and supplies are included, as are beach towels. An island resident/handyman is available for maintenance issues when guests are in residence. Dalwhinnie has an HVAC contractor under contract to provide emergency service when needed. Monthly maintenance is performed on our golf carts. Pest control services are provided quarterly and as needed. Dalwhinnie has clear lexan hurricane shutters, and an island contractor who installs them when a hurricane is forecast.

Refurbishment: In 2006, major refurbishment! New windows, doors, refinished floors, new carpet, appliances, blinds, even hot water heaters and HVAC systems are new. 2005 and 2006, new mattresses. Painted inside and out - Dalwhinnie is glistening! In 2010 we replaced our roof, and refurbished our screened in porch. In 2012 we made upgrades to our kitchen to include granite counters, stainless steel sink, garbage disposal.

Both clubs available for nominal fee.

                      Access to island is by ferry; you leave your car at the Deep Point Ferry Landing in Southport, N.C. where you embark the ferry.

                      Transporation on the island - to Dalwhinnie is by tram, when you disembark the ferry. Two golf carts are provided at Dalwhinnie for transportation.

                      The island features the Old Baldy, the oldest lighthouse in North Carolina, which is still open for climbing to the public, nature trails, miles of beaches, a tidal creek, and the Bald Head Island Conservancy which has a national reputation for protecting and educating the public about sea turtles.
