Property description

Beautiful 3600 sq ft. custom home located just 4 blocks from the Atlantic ocean, local restaurants, shopping, local grocery and churches.

Located on pristine tidal waters and surrounded by lush tropical landscaping, this home affords a lot of privacy for large family gatherings or entertaining. Featuring two dining areas, one indoor and one outdoor, you can comfortably sit 20 or more people for a delicious meal prepared in your own gourmet kitchen.

The large master bedroom, sitting atop the 3rd floor, includes a sitting and office area, large Jacuzzi tub and walk-in shower. French doors open to your own private deck which offers fantastic views of the tidal marsh and Harbour Island.

Enjoy spending time with family and friends viewing the most beautiful sunsets Wrightsville Beach has to offer. From the expansive decks you can watch the abundant wildlife including Great Blue Herons, Snowy Egrets, Plovers, Pelicans and many more. The lower deck offers a ping pong table for gaming and an outside enclosed shower which is a delight for large families or those that just like living outdoors.

A large lush back yard provides plenty of room for relaxing in the hammock and outside recreational gaming. Bring or rent your own kayak or canoe and launch it from here to explore the waterways, sounds or the ocean.

If you like surfing our area is known for some of the best waves on the east coast.. Please note that this home is a private residence and parties are not allowed to be held here.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We are Mark and Paula Turner. Mark custom built this house for our family in 2005. We have enjoyed having many wonderful large family gatherings here in our home as well as opening our doors for family and friends visiting from out of town. When you live at Wrightsville Beach everyone wants to come and visit. It is our little slice of Paradise. Everything we need is within walking or biking distance from the house. The sunsets are breath taking. We walk this beautiful beach almost every morning.

Why the Owner Chose Wrightsville Beach:
Pristine beaches, safety, great restaurants, self contained community. Outdoor water sports, boating, surfing, fishing, skiing, wakeboarding, kite boarding, diving, snorkeling you name it. If you can do it on the water you can do it here. Close proximity to Mayfaire Town Center, a mega shopping development. Only 15 minutes from Historic Downtown Wilmington and the Riverfront.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Privacy, living on the marsh, lush tropical landscaping, enjoying the abundant wildlife, especially the birds. Being able to kayak or canoe from your backyard to the waterways, sounds and even the ocean. Open floor plan with triple doors off the main living area. These triple doors open up allowing the outside living area and the inside living area to become one, giving the house an open airy tropical Caribbean feel. Please note that this private home is in a quite residential neighborhood and does not allow party events to be held here.
