Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Our family loves having a place at the beach. We are natives of Eastern North Carolina for generations.

Why the Owner Chose Surf City:
We grew up going to Topsail. It is a great family-oriented place with 26 miles of beach that is easily accessed from Wilmington and Raleigh.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love being within walking distance to shops and restaurants. We have walked to Max's Pizza from our house for a large family dinner (even at Christmas). The beach is wide and flat in front of the house and we enjoy both sunsets and sunrises from our multiple decks.
