Bald Head Island house description

Focused on Intimate Weddings, Receptions, Rehearsal Dinners, Corporate Retreats, Family Vacations and other Extra Special Events, this home represents a more private alternative to a commercial facility.

Comfortably sleeping ten to twelve and providing a social setting up to 60 guests (or more with prior approval and additional fee) on the expansive deck, 'La Vita Bruta' (the hard life) is right on the beach with it's own private access. It is one of the few homes on the East Coast that has the beach and the water on the West side for magnificent sunsets and settings for memorable pictures. With several other homes for rent on the same street, your whole party could stay within walking distance.

This property is built on a double lot for maximum intimacy and privacy. It was custom designed and built as a full time residence, so it is loaded with detail not usually found in a beach house. It has been featured in 'American Dream Homes' and 'Haven' magazines.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  Why the Owner Chose Bald Head Island:
                  We custom built this home as a permanent residence and lived here full time for 4 years. When our daughter leaves for cillege we will move back full time. Bald Head is a special is our home. This is NOT your typical vacation rental home!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We built straddling a double lot so we have alot of privacy. Facing West, our sunsets are spectacular. We have direct views of 2 lighthouses. Fishing from the beach in front of our home is fabulous (right down our private access walk) and the kite surfers enjoy the easy launching point and prevailing southwesterly breezes all summer long. The mainland lights at night as well as the ships navigating the deepwater channel to Wilmington break up the monotony of a typical ocean view.
