About the owner: After moving to Charlottesville,Virginia from the San Francisco area in 2002, our family longed to be near the ocean. We felt as though we had struck gold when we discovered the beauty of Bald Head Island. Our children and their friends love everything about the island and look forward to every visit.
Why the Owner Chose Bald Head Island: My husband & I were captivated by the uniqueness of Bald Head Island. After visiting for three years, we decided to purchase land in Cape Fear Station and build a home on the island. We finished STAR GAZER in April 2009 and it was absolutely worth the wait!
The Unique Benefits at this House: Together with our children, friends, and family members, we enjoy the pristine beaches immensely, as well as exploring the island on a golf cart, bicycle, or on foot. The brief ferry ride from Southport provides a much needed means to relax and anticipate the joy of what lies ahead.
