                      Location

                      Car: Recommended

                      You have the ocean and porpoises in your backyard and great views of the Intra Coastal Waterway from the front. Less than an eight minute walk from your front door are 2 lighted tennis courts, a basketball court, a volleyball court, horseshoe area, an enclosed children's playground, a lovely covered picnic area, and pier that takes you out on the intracoastal to watch all the boats going by or to try your luck at crabbing or fishing.

                      Bring your bike and travel for miles on the bike path that runs in front of the house.

                      For the golfer, there is a four Star Course that is a 6 minute drive from the house. There are four other courses in the area to explore.

                      Within a 15 minute walk, you can fish off the East Coasts longest fishing pier. There is a good little restaurant there as well. They will even cook your catch.

                      You can enjoy deep sea fishing on one of the local charter boats.

                      Drive to historic Wilmington and tour several of the beautiful plantation homes.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: We're Jim and Paulette McGrath. Jim was the builder and general contractor of our beautiful oceanfront duplex in 2007. Jim built it much stronger and insulated it much better, for sound reduction and climate extremes, then building codes required.

                      Why the Owner Chose North Topsail Beach:
                      Jim wanted an oceanfront house ever since he was 10 years old. That was when his parents rented a house on the beach facing the Atlantic Ocean in Long Beach, NY. He fell in love with the sounds of the shore break, the cool breezes, playing in the waves and building sand castles. About 13 years ago, Jim found Topsail Island. It wasn't as busy as Myrtle Beach or the Outer Banks. But, the quality of the uncrowded sandy beaches and caribbean-like, always changing ocean colors, caught his eye. Also, he liked that the climate was more moderate than the steamy more southern states and the average ocean temperatures were much warmer than the colder northern states. Thankfully, it is still the same today
