About the owner: Our 2 kids' summers were spent growing up in this home, but now that they're grown and living out West we're making it available for a few weeks each summer to 'share the joy'. Lots of good times and memories we want to preserve, but also enrich through the experiences of others. If you come please leave us a fun picture to share on our walls! We have excellent resources on the island to insure that your stay is a success.
Why the Owner Chose Bald Head Island, NC, USA:
Warm family feel, spacious, stunning views from dune ridge but with the beach right across the street, grocery store and shopping arcade 4 blocks away, BHI Club (golf, tennis, croquet, exercise center, restaurants) a 5 minute cart ride, and marina/ferry 10 minutes drive. We put the 2 lots in front of the house in permanent conservation easement to preserve the view and enhance the sense of privacy in the house. The expansive great room can be configured to comfortably seat 25-30 people for a wedding, family reunion, or corporate event. This great room flows out onto an expansive, multi-layered deck which provides an ideal view of the ocean and nighttime stars. The property is also centrally located on the Island, right in the middle of South Beach facing the ocean.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Walking, Biking and golf carts rule the roads here (no cars allowed); great blend of privacy, spacious views, and removal from the crowd where the island and house are concerned but with the benefits of a world class Golf Club, shopping, grocery store, spa, and restaurants all within a 5-10 minutes away. Healthy variety of watersport, fishing, food, art and shopping vendors on the island make it a great place for everyone in the family to find something fun to do. Or just sit on the deck or on the expansive beach and soak up the view! Our home feels roomy and comfortable, with an expansive great room that draws people together but with plenty of places for privacy and wrap-around decking to secure peaceful moments.
