With two Master Bedroom Suites, this home is perfect for two families. 'Star Gazer' has a reverse floor plan, which utilizes the second story for cooking, dining, and great room gathering while enjoying Maritime Forest views as well as the calming sounds of nearby ocean waves. Each floor offers its own spacious Master Bedroom Suite with king-size bed as well as private screened porch access. The Master Baths have extensive tile work, a Jacuzzi soaking tub and an over-sized shower featuring body sprays for the ultimate in relaxation. There are two additional bedrooms on the first floor. The third bedroom has a queen-size bed while the fourth bedroom has something all children enjoy--a unique full-size bunk bed with a twin trundle able to accommodate four happy sleepers. Both of these two bedrooms include custom tiled en suite baths. All four bedrooms have ceiling fans and flat screen TVs.

This lovely home offers a total of five porches, three of which are screened to allow eat-in dining, as well as a 'Star Gazing' deck for sunbathing during the day and stargazing in the evening.


A new infant/toddler crib and high chair are available for use during your stay. There is a laundry room on the first floor and a handy mud room at the rear entryway. An enclosed outside shower sits between the two-cart garage and back entrance, allowing a fun way to get cleaned up after a great day at the beach. The second floor Great Room, a primary gathering space, features a custom sectional couch with generous seating, over 30 new family games and puzzles, and a 46-inch flat screen TV hidden away in a cabinet above the fireplace. Adjacent to the Great Room, a hand-made cherry dining room table able to seat 10 occupies the kitchen/dining room area. Cathedral ceilings in these three rooms allow wonderful lighting throughout the day.

'Star Gazer' encompasses a wooded corner lot, which affords privacy and a distinct sense of closeness to nature. Yet, this special island home is convenient to Bald Head Island's gourmet market, boutique shops, The Shoals Club, Bald Head Island Country Club, The Island Conservancy, and the Marina.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2008

              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 2008 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.
