Property description

Read the comments- People LOVE this place!! This is a three-story duplex located on the North end of Carolina Beach.This townhouse is approximately 2700 square feet, so there is alot of room for multiple families. The property is located across the street from the ocean with only one row of houses between you and the beach. The views are better than many oceanfront houses! A public walkway to the beach is almost directly across the street from the house, and this is not a busy street.

The views of the beach and the canal are breathtaking. Watch the sun rise and set from almost any room in the house. When looking at the photo of the house, the right side is the property listed. Unit 2 has six covered porches with access from every floor to both the ocean view and the canal view. The first floor has a recreation room with an air hockey table and a twin playhouse bed, a sleeper sofa and TV with DVD/VCR.

There is also a separate bedroom with two twin beds, TV with DVD,private deck overlooking the sound, and a common bath between the rec room and the bedroom. The washer and dryer are located in the hallway. A Game table/bar area is located in the foyer and is a great pace to play board games or cards.

The middle floor has a great room with a gas fireplace, 30 inch High Definition TV/DVD with the Sports Network and HBO, a sleeper sofa, kitchen, dining room and bar, pantry and private deck overlooking the ocean. There is also a bedroom with a king bed, bath, and private deck overlooking the sound. The third floor has a master suite with a king bed, jacuzzi and shower bath and a large deck overlooking the ocean.

The Master Suite TV also has extended cable with HBO and the Sports Network. There is also another bedroom with two full beds, a private bath, a computer station with wireless internet access (no computer provided). This bedroom also has a deck overlooking the sound.

The house has a private heated pool,large deck, grill, private elevator, and storage and parking underneath the house. This house was built for the enjoyment of our family and yours. We built it with nothing spared! Come and enjoy the beautiful brightly colored rooms and decor with absolutely breathtaking views of both the ocean and the canal. Sit on the front decks and see and hear the ocean roar. Watch the sun set against the sailboat silhouettes in the canal. It is an absolute dream!

***Families and responsible adults ONLY need to inquire***
****We make every effort and take great pride in keeping our properties in great working order and up to date. However, there are times when equipment malfunctions in the elevator and/or pool pump which is beyond our control. We offer a reasonable repair time in conjunction with the repair companies. Elevators are for luxury use only. They will not accomodate a wheelchair and this property should not be rented if an elevator is essential for any tenants. This residential elevator does not meet the same requirements as a commercial elevator. We cannot refund any monies due to elevator/pool dysfunction that is not repairable by the owners/management company.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: Avi and I have lived in the Wilmington area since 1991. Avi came to the area to open the first Wings store in Carolina Beach. We fell in love with the area and once settled in Wilmington, we began to buy properties in Carolina Beach. We loved the north end of the island because the beaches were beautiful and there was little traffic down Carolina Beach Avenue North. We vacation in Carolina Beach too and have lived here during the winters during various house renovations.

Why the Owner Chose Carolina Beach:
We bought the original property as in investment. It was a ranch style house, seated on the ground, with a garage apartment. We rented the triplex out on yearly leases for approximately 7-8 years. We then saw the growth in Carolina Beach and decided to build our retirement townhouse. We built these two duplexes in 2004 with plans to sell Unit 1. When the real estate market started to dive, we decided to hold on to both townhouses and rent them out weekly. We have a strong rental history with many happy returning renters each year. We also enjoy our time in Unit 2 with our family and extended family.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
We are one of the very few properties with a pool onsite. This property also has the most fabulous views. You can stand in almost any room in the house and have a panoramic view of the water. You can watch the sun rise over the ocean and set over the canal. We put our heart and soul into building this place, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
