About the Property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Enjoy the best of both worlds. Playground for adults and children. You can enjoy all the activities associated with sound access including kayaking, canoeing,crabbing, (crab traps available), and clamming,etc. The house has a pier on a large marsh bay area that is safe boating for children. The inland waterway is several hundred yards away and while accessible, it is heavily traveled by yachts. Yachts, which are a pleasure to watch and to watch out for while boating. Our bay area averages a depth of 3 ft. which makes it ideal for the young ones. Many variety of birds including osprey, great herons, egrets, pelicans are in attendance at all times. Watch them from the back deck or while relaxing in the hot tub.
On the ocean side, there is walkover to the beach. No walking a good distance to locate a way to get to/on the beach. The beach is never crowded even on holiday weekends. The beach is a jewel waiting to be discovered.
A fully gourment style kitchen with modern Fisher/Paykel appliances is something to be enjoyed and enhanced with 180 degree views of ocean and sound. The spacious kitchen also allows many helping hands to make the experience much easier on the main chef.
Totally remodeled in 2006 to upgrade and provide us with the 'bells and whistles we wanted in a dream house at the beach. The house is really divided into two sections, one for the younger ones to enjoy and escape to watch tv, movies, and video games and one for the adults to sit and relax.


Keywords: Open style kitchen, family room, and dining room afford 360 views of ocean and intracoastal waterway. Near 4 star golf course.

About the owner: A retired couple who love the beach but have decided to move for a variety of reasons. We have enjoyed Topsail so much we would love to share the beach experience with others.
