Topsail Beach house description

After years of family trips to Topsail Island and creating wonderful memories, we have now purchased our beach house – “AT LAST”!!! It is located on the south end of beautiful Topsail Island and is a one-minute walk to the beach. We are now adding “special touches” to our new home and will soon add more pictures to this listing. We wanted, however, to go ahead and list it immediately to give everyone an opportunity to enjoy a very special and affordable 2013 summer vacation -- “At Last”!!

Appropriately named - “At Last” is truly the perfect beach get away with three roomy bedrooms, two baths, open floor plan, enclosed outside shower and even an outside sink to clean your catch of the day. It is so unique –definitely a beach house like no other. Although siding now covers the logs on the exterior, the house was originally built as a log cabin. Inside, you can still see the hand crafted tongue and grove walls in the living area and master bedroom. In the downstairs bedrooms, the tongue and grove, beamed ceilings give each room such a cozy, warm feeling.

There's a long, covered front porch with rocking chairs and large screened back porch that's surrounded by your own maritime forest of Live Oaks. The private balcony off the large master bedroom (with king-size bed) is a wonderful place to enjoy the ocean view while having your morning coffee. “At Last” has two additional roomy bedrooms with new mattresses and TVs; two baths; and comfortably accommodates a maximum of eight guests. There's plenty of parking at the house and in the downstairs utility room, you'll find a full-size washer and dryer as well as storage for the provided beach chairs, boogie boards, sand buckets, beach toys and games.

The open living area, with grand vaulted ceiling, includes a kitchen that’s well-stocked with small appliances, utensils, pots, pans, plenty of dinnerware and silverware. The dining area has a table for six and a bar that seats four people. In the unlikely event of rain at the beach, you can enjoy the hundreds of channels on the 51” flat-panel HDTV, watch a movie on the DVD/Blu-ray player, read a book, play a game or put together a puzzle.

Topsail Island is a beautiful, safe, unspoiled, barrier island with 26 miles of wonderful sandy beaches. “At Last” is located in the family-oriented Topsail Beach community on a friendly, quiet street that’s great for biking, jogging, or strolling down by the water. One end has our beach cross-over and the other dead ends into the waterway. From our house, it’s just 36 steps to the beach where you can relax, soak up the sun, and watch the waves lap onto the wide, sandy shore.

We looked a long time to find just the right beach place and know this is it!! Come on down, settle into our cozy home, stroll on the beach, cast a line, enjoy the area and we’re sure you’ll agree that you, too, have found your favorite beach vacation spot – At Last!!!
