Everything needed for the perfect beach vacation is here. On a quiet gated street, it sits onTopsail's spectacular pristine beach and beautiful blue-green ocean.

To make your vacation truly carefree, we provide beach chairs, boogie boards, sun shelter, beach and pool games and toys, and baby 'Pack and Play,' and highchair.

                          Location

                          Car: Necessary

                          Located north of the Colonial town of Wilmington, NC, and south of the Outer Banks, North Topsail offers every classic beach vacation activity. Swim or boogie board in the beautiful blue-green ocean. Splash in the heated pool. Take leisurely beach walks or stroll along natural dune paths. Rent a kayak to explore birds and wildlife in the creeks, or a parasail or surfboard just to see if you can. Play on the beach. Build sand castles or just sit and soak up the sun with a good book. Play golf or tennis just over the bridge or just up the beach. Go fishing in the surf or along the Intracoastal Waterway. In Surf City you can browse the shops or watch the surfers catch waves off the dock. Buy tickets on the Topsail Belle for a cocktail sunset cruise. Buy fresh fish, scallops, crabs or clams and have a cookout or a cook-in. Sit in the hot tub and count your blessings. Watch a wonderful movie in our full-scale theater.

                          Other Activities: shopping, kayaking, boating, parasailing, shelling, health/beauty spa, basketball, miniature golf

                          Golf: Northshore Country Club, just across the bridge.

                          Year Purchased: 2005

                          About: We are Andy and Diane Brashear. We built BEYOND THE BLUE in 2005 as a retirement home for our parents, Rusty and Mary, and as a vacation home for us. We met at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. After a sojourn in England, where Andy was in graduate school and Diane worked at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, we traveled extensively around Europe before retuning to the States to be married in Cincinnati (where Diane grew up) in 2005. We lived in Chicago for three years and now live in a wonderfully remodeled 1913 house in Denver's Washington Park. We love the mountains' outdoor lifestyle, but must travel south to engage in our other love, the ocean.

                          Why North Topsail Beach:
                          BEYOND THE BLUE is located on the beautiful, wide, unspoiled, uncrowded beach of North Topsail Island. The ocean water here is warm, clean and a beautiful blue-green in color. When we saw the color of the water and the broad pristine beach, we knew that this was where we had to be.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          We take long walks on the pristine beach, swim and surf in the ocean, and relax in the pool and hot tub. Cooking is fun and easy with the extremely well equipped kitchen and the endless supply of delicious ingredients from the waters surrounding Topsail: fresh shrimp, scallops, oysters, flounder, clams, tuna, and on and on. When the sun sets, the theater room has 110' screen two tiers of electronically reclining seats. Some family members quite regularly fall asleep there. Because we built the house ourselves, we got to indulge our sense of fun by painting wall murals in strategic places, like the elevator and the laundry room. We hope you bring your sense of fun and whimsy, along with your wish, in flights of peace and fancy, to go beyond the blue.
