About the Property

Stunning & well appointed 4 BR & 3 BA reverse plan very close to beach with pool

Escape to this brand new (completed in Dec 2013) beach house in the Live Oaks of Topsail Island neighborhood for a well-deserved getaway with your family and friends. This sunny end-unit home is well-appointed, spacious and beautifully decorated that features the popular reverse floor plan to showcase the views of the Atlantic Ocean, the Intracoastal Waterway as well as the sparkling neighborhood swimming pool. There is plenty of outdoor living space with 2 sundecks, 2 covered porches and a ground-level deck to soak it all in. Anywhere you go, you’ll be able to enjoy this wonderful vacation home.
On the top floor of the Sand Dollar Blessing is the main living area with an open layout that will bring your family together. You will instantly love the look and feel of this coastal paradise with its gorgeous overstuffed furnishings and great architectural details including vaulted ceilings, wainscoting, upgraded kitchen cabinets and more! The queen sleeper sofa is here for your mid-week guests. Gather for a movie on the 46' flat screen TV, play board games and get comfortable on the furnishings as you settle in for a memorable evening of great conversation.
The kitchen, dining area and eat-in bar are just steps away from the open living room. The gorgeous well-stocked kitchen is a great place to prepare fresh seafood feasts for your family. The granite countertops, stainless appliances, butcher’s block will make everyone want to be a part of the day’s meals. Use the oversized pantry to keep your groceries and other belongings tucked away. Gather at the eat-in bar and dining table when your food is just right. Your family will always remember these delicious meals because of the fun and conversations around the table with the stunning ocean views in the background.
When you want to take in a breathtaking sunset over the Intracoastal Waterway or continue to admire the ocean, step outside to the covered porch on the front of the home. This is a great spot where everyone will want to gently sway back and forth in the rocking chairs or enjoy the cafe chairs and table, no matter what time of day. Also on this floor is a full bathroom and a wide sun deck out back with great views of the ocean and the community swimming pool. Watch your children frolic in the pool and take in a view of the ocean. You’ll feel on top of the world here!
When the day is done and sleep is the only thing on your mind, there are four bedrooms here to accommodate everyone in your group. On the top floor is a queen bedroom with a flat screen TV and access to the sun deck that overlooks the pool.This is a great spot for those wanting to limit the steps in their daily routine. Head downstairs to the first floor to find the other three bedrooms. You will fall in love with the master bedroom that features a new luxurious king bed, flat screen TV, writing desk and private bathroom (with 2 sinks!). Rest and relaxation will be easy here! When you are looking for a little privacy, head out to the private covered porch for Sound views and the smell of salt air. You are home now! On the back side of the home there are two bedrooms that the kids will love. On the west side of the home there is a twin/double bunk bed with trundle. The pale shades of green are relaxing and the comfort is all there. There is a flat screen TV here as well as access to the covered deck that overlooks the swimming pool. The final bedroom has another twin/double bunk bed, a flat screen TV and private access to the covered deck. The nautical feeling with the reds and blues will be a hit for the kids. Completing this floor is a full size washer/dryer for your convenience and the main entry.
When it’s time to head to the beach, gather your chairs and toys (some avail. for your use in the ground floor storage) and walk south on S. Topsail Drive to the junction of S. Shore Drive at the “S-Curve”. Continue down South Shore Drive until you reach Windward Drive and cross the street to enter the beach access located just before 1318 S. Shore Drive.
Featured amenities include central air/heat, 5 color cable TVs, 5 DVD players (1 in Family room is Blue Ray), wireless internet access, dishwasher, microwave, washer/dryer, ceiling fans, enclosed outdoor hot/cold shower, carport w/wet weather entry, gas grill, 2 ocean & ICW view porches and 2 pool view porches - all with well appointed deck furniture.
Access to the professionally serviced community swimming pool. Pool is typically open from mid-May to October 1.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: 2015 is our first year listed on HomeAway and VRBO. We first listed through a local rental agency but felt it kept renters at too far a distance from us - the homeowners! So, with advice from friends, we are now listing our beach home property ourselves. In the process we hope to maintain better oversight of our beautiful beach home, as well as provide a better welcome to those that rent and get to know you a little in order to provide you with the things you might need in order to ensure you have a great stay at our home.

Why the Owner Chose Surf City, NC, USA:
We looked up and down the southern NC coast until we found a place with just the right mix of location and amenities for our family. And we found it here in Surf City (even the town name is cool!)!! Our end-unit beach house is new, bright and only a short stroll to the beach, and right next to the community pool. It has a great beach vibe with its great ocean views and unmistakable cottage feel. The upper living floor is open concept with extra windows on the ocean side to capitalize on the great ocean views. There are 4 separate bedrooms, each with a 32' flat screen TV and DVD player so that everyone can have their own space. The MBR also has a desk in case you need to make sure things are okay back at work while you are enjoying your ocean vacation.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Great sunny house location as the end-unit with wonderful ocean views. Classic beach cottage feel! Next to the uncrowded beach and Surf City shops and restaurants. Use of beautiful neighborhood pool shared by only 20 houses - not hundreds of units. Just a restful place to spend time at the beach and with family and friends.
