Hampstead house description

Heron's View offers relaxation, recreation, and on-site access to the Intracoastal Waterway. We are 5 minutes from Harbour Village Marina, 15 minutes from the beaches of Topsail Island, and 30 minutes from downtown Wilmington. It's very quiet here, but there is plenty to do.

If you like activity, there are outdoor sports of all types - plus many galleries, gardens, museums, and historical sites to visit in the area.

If you are here for relaxation, there's always the beach or the porch.

                          Year Purchased: 2012

                          About: Owner Ailsa and Geoff are from England but Geoff has worked for the same company for years and they have lived in some wonderful places because of his work. Before coming to the US to live in NJ, they lived for years in Italy.

                          Why Hampstead:
                          Two couples who are close friends of owners Ailsa and Geoff discovered Mallard Bay and bought homes here where they hope to retire. They began looking then for a home in Mallard Bay and after many months, Heron's View went on the market. Their realtor showed them the house on her new phone and they made an offer quickly - before seeing the property in person. Next, Ailsa came with the realtor and visited long enough to check out the ambiance of Heron's View. Convinced that both Mallard Bay and Heron's View were what they were looking for, they signed the contract, though Geoff had still not seen the property. When you experience Heron's View for yourself, you will see why! Geoff recently began making retirement plans and he and Ailsa look forward to being at Mallard Bay more in the future. They also love their lake house in NJ and hope to spend part of the year in NC and part in NJ.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Geoff and Ailsa Clarke are part of their NJ Lake community but are already feeling part of the Mallard Bay neighborhood as well. Their new house on the ICWW is very well built and easy to maintain and they already love being on the waterway! Heron's View was a Bed and Breakfast before becoming a vacation rental and the former B&B owner is available to assist guests at Heron's View.
