Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Jim's parents lived on the island for years. His parents were very involved with the island conservancy. Malcolm was an artist and the house is named after his painting 'The Hatchlings' which hangs at the BHI Conservancy. Our daughter was married on BHI and our son proposed to his fiancee on BHI. Bald Head has been a wonderful summer vacation spot for our extended family for years. We hope to continue this tradition for many years to come. We are so excited to have bought this home in summer 2013.

Why the Owner Chose Bald Head Island, NC, USA:
As soon as we saw this house, we knew it was the perfect home for our family, with a great location on the island. The large open living area is a wonderful space for family gatherings. This area is enhanced by the easy access to the large porch. The upper level porch has dining and seating areas. The lower level porch offers shade.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Built in 1974, this is one of the 17 'generator' generation homes built on BHI. It has been beautifully updated while keeping it's original charm. The vaulted ceiling in the open living room gives the home a spacious feeling. It is conservatively decorated with fun beach accents.The bright blue, red, and white colors are lovely. The home is located on a cul-de-sac lane, just a short walk to the beach. Evenings on the porch are spectacular.
