Built in 2013 !! We designed it to WOW you. Come see for yourself.

With 10 bedrooms each with its own bathroom there is plenty of room for everyone. 8 of the bedrooms have king beds and there are 2 bunk bed rooms, 1 bunk room sleeps 4 and the other sleeps 8 for a total of 28 beds. All beds feature plush pillow top mattresses with convenient dimmable lights over the beds for catching up on that late night read. There are 10 full bathrooms and 2 half baths in this house so everyone is comfortable. Compare this to other large houses - you will appreciate the difference.

We've got that covered with a dramatic home theater that seats 18 in comfort. Featuring elevated stepped seating, a 140 inch screen and hd projector, a sound system that will take your breath away with surround sound speakers and subwoofer, this room will be a favorite of both adults and kids. We have been told that this is the most amazing home theater on the island. Access movies via netflix or cable or bring your own favorites on your ipod to watch and enjoy anew. Parents can keep an eye on the little ones while they are in the theater via closed circuit tv. There is a full service wet bar just outside the theater to keep everyone fed and happy. Though we think the sound of the ocean is the best, you can accompany it with your favorite tunes while outside on the decks, just plug your ipod into the outdoor ports on any deck and outdoor speaker volume control is in your hands. Consideration of neighbors is appreciated of course.
Cooking is often a thankless task. But we designed this house to delight the cooks in your group and to bring them into the center of the action even while they are cooking. The centerpiece of the kitchen is the 19 foot long granite island that includes a 6 pot cooktop and prep sink. As the cook/s work their magic for the 12 people seated at the island, they have a perfect view of the rest of the great room and the "water feature" aka the atlantic ocean through the front wall of huge windows . There are double wall ovens and a large microwave. The large kitchen sink has its own window and great ocean view. The kitchen is very well equipped with a kitchenaid mixer, icecream maker, hand blender, food processor, mixing bowls, baking dishes, multipot slow cooker, cast iron enamel baking pots, turkey roasting pan, toaster and 2 coffee makers. Make a large pot of coffee or bring your k cups. We've got you covered. Storage abounds with a large well organized pantry with pull out shelves, drawers galore and clever nooks for everything. A huge french door fridge and super quiet bosch stainless steel dishwasher complete the kitchen. You will find most every kitchen gadget you can think of in the many drawers. The dining table seats 12 under a dramatic swarovski crystal adorned chandelier. There is a wet bar with a wine/beverage cooler and a commercial ice maker in the center of the great room with its own sink, glassware, blender and bar tools so the mixologist in the group can keep everyone happy.
Grill masters listen up. On the top deck with its own platform cantilevered forward toward the ocean there is a 12 foot long granite grill station featuring a 42 inch cape fear wilmington grill. Made just down the road here in north carolina, this grill is an all stainless steel marvel that is made to stand up to ocean front exposure. Whatever your specialty, this grill will perform in style. Stand at the grill, gaze at the ocean or glance down at the pool deck. Life is good. Enjoy your family and the moment. Breakfast on the grill? What did you say? Well its a special beach pleasure. Take the large family sized pans out to the grill and cook eggs and french toast while sipping your coffee and watching the waves roll in.
Did you say you want a view? Skyward 13 feet from the top floor deck accessed by an aluminum spiral staircase there is another deck with one of the best views on topsail island. You tower over the surrounding roof tops with a view of the entire island on a clear day. Not enough for you? So how about a hot tub too? One of our team coined the term "viewcuzzi". We think it fits. Access to this deck should be limited to adults and children under the direct supervision of adults.
Maybe you haven't spent much time at the beach in the quiet but really special private off season. For the cool nights,while savoring your culinary creations and connecting with friends and family there is nothing like a fireplace to complete the evening. The gas fireplace is as easy as flipping the switch. Please keep little ones away from the fireplace for safety.
There is a large pool table for the skilled and not so skilled. Over the course of your week skill will grow and rivalries will develop. Adults will lose to kids. This is how it should be.
The owner is a building science junkie who values comfort, energy efficiency and indoor air quality among many other construction attributes. The house features a high reflectivity aluminum roof to keep you cool, high density closed cell spray foam insulation in walls and roof, 6 to 8 inch thick exterior walls for structural integrity and insulation value, super energy sparing windows and a variable speed high efficiency multizone heat pump system. The system is designed to provide fresh air changes to keep everyone comfortable. So please do not leave windows or garage doors open to confuse the air conditioning system and expose the electronics to damaging salt air. Hot water is provided by 5 heat pump water heaters that use 20% of the energy of conventional electric water heaters. Floors are italian porcelain tile, all the countertops in the house are granite and wait until you see the gentle glow of light and color coming through from below the art glass sink in your bathroom.
Your skin deserves to be happy at the beach. Take care of it and use shade, sunblock and appropriate clothing and hats. But we are helping with a whole house water softener. This will keep your skin much happier while on vacation. A bonus is clothes get cleaner too, especially when washed in the large capacity front loading washer/dryer.
Suspended on a deck over the dune sits 2 large splash pools each 10 feet in diameter. One is elevated and has a waterfall that flows into the lower pool. Designed mainly for soaking and sharing with good friends these pools are large enough for the toddlers to spash around in. Lap swimmers are encouraged to use the "big pool" in your front yard (Atlantic Ocean). There is plenty of seating for a large group on stone pool surrounds. Share food and drink on the pool deck or take a dip after time on the beach. Enjoy the outside shower next to the pool deck. The closed circuit TV screen in the kitchen provides a view of the splash pools for parents to monitor the kids while cooking.
There is room for up to 5 normal sized cars in the 3 enclosed garage bays or 3 monsters. The driveway will provide parking space for an additional 2 or 3 cars. This keeps your vehicles out of the weather and salt and provides a weather protected entry after grocery runs.
A large capacity residential elevator is provided for your convenience and since the house is 47 feet tall this is nice for everyone especially when moving luggage and groceries into the house. Those that cannot safely climb stairs will not have to do so. Bedroom 3 on the top floor is designed to be friendly for the less physically abled. 3 foot wide doorways and user placed suction cup grab bars are available for use as needed. A shower chair is also available upon request. Please don't allow the little ones to ride the elevator without an adult.
The sun can create a very hot surface temperature on most decks making it very difficult to walk around without shoes. Wooden decks will also splinter easily making for unhappy children. We have invested in what we feel is the best of all worlds - all aluminum deck by wahoo decks. It's cooler on the feet than other decks, does not splinter and is the most durable material on the market. Spills clean up easily. So enjoy time outside on our decks. There are so many to choose from.
It is well known that the best surf break on the island is a ways down the beach toward the Surf City pier. If there are any surfers in your group they will be very happy. Others will be entertained. The pier is an easy walk up the beach and small shops and food service are within short walking distance. There is a great deli –New York Corner Deli- within sight of the house and a surf shop just up the road. A big bonus of this location is that north shore drive in this area is not heavily traveled making walking and biking a nice experience.
