Property description

After years of family trips to Topsail Island and creating wonderful memories, we now have our very own beach house – “AT LAST”!!! It is located on the south end of beautiful Topsail Island and is a two-minute walk to the beach. 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.

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 provided movie on the DVD/Blu-ray player, read a book, play a game or put together a puzzle.

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 upstairs master bedroom (with king-size bed) is a wonderful place to enjoy the ocean view while having your morning coffee. The master bath, with new tile shower and glass doors, was recently renovated with new flooring, ceiling, sink, fixtures and nautical décor. On the main level, “At Last” has two additional roomy bedrooms with TVs and DVD players and another full bath (with new paint, fixtures, mirror and decor.) In the downstairs utility room, you'll find a full-size washer, dryer and extra refrigerator as well as storage for the provided beach chairs, boogie boards, sand buckets, and beach toys. Our home comfortably accommodates a maximum of eight guests with plenty of parking space.

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. From our house, it’s just a few steps to the beach where you can relax, soak up the sun, and watch the waves lap onto the wide, sandy shore. Walking down the street, in the other direction, it dead ends into the picturesque waterway where sunsets are magnificent!

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!!!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I grew up going to my grandmother's cottage on Topsail Island and loved every minute spent there. That beachfront cottage, however, was taken in Hurricane Fran (1996) and could not be rebuilt. For a very long time, I dreamed of having a house on Topsail Island. I met my significant other, Greg, a few years ago and found that he loved the beach as well. After talking for years, we began planning for a beach house and, of course, it had to be on Topsail!

Why the Owner Chose Topsail Beach, NC, USA:
We started looking for a beach place but soon realized it would not be an easy, nor quick, task. For so long, we looked at so many places but it had to be the right location, the right house, and the right "feel". In June, 2013, after two years of searching, we finally found it - "At Last" - thus the name!! It was perfect - right location, right size, unique, and that oh so special "feel"!! We immediately fell in love and love it more every time we go!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The uniqueness of a "log cabin" at the beach first got our attention and the beautiful setting among the Live Oaks was icing on the cake! We felt, when we first walked in, that we had found "home". And now for the "rest of the story": A year after buying a beach house together and after eight years of being together as a couple, Susan and Greg were married - on the beach, at Topsail. Can you guess what song was playing as the bride walked down the beach? Yes, it was "At Last" of course!!!
