When pure luxury and elegance is your desire for a memorable beach vacation, A Castle In The Sand will certainly fulfill that need.
As this home was chosen for the filming location of the popular TV show “One Tree Hill” during the 2009 through 2011 season series, it will certainly be an exciting destination for those of you that followed and enjoyed this popular TV show.
Sitting majestically along three direct oceanfront lots, each meticulously landscaped and manicured with palm trees and lush tropical foliage surrounding a heated oceanfront pool, covered gazebo, arbor and trellis covered pathway, all enclosed within a 6 foot high privacy fence. This home nestled along an expansive 237 feet of ocean frontage will certainly provide the ultimate beach vacation that you will not soon forget.
This home has 4 large bedrooms with 3.5 baths with additional sleeping quarters in the upper level balcony loft area. It is equipped with 2 kings, 1 queen, 2 sets of bunks, 1 pyramid, 1 daybed with trundle and 2 queen sleeper sofas. It is set up to sleep 19 comfortably.
This home provides major amenities which include: a private heated swimming pool, covered poolside gazebo, enclosed outdoor shower with hot and cold water, beach observation deck on sand dune, boat dock, elevator, Wifi, flat screen TV’s, surround sound, lots of covered porches and decks and last but certainly not least, expansive water views from every window in the house. The views are simply amazing and on a clear sunny day you can see as far down the beach as to the Surf City fishing pier which is 10 miles south. This is all due to the precise positioning of this home as it sits directly in the center of 3 oceanfront lots (237 feet of ocean frontage) with absolutely no view obstructions on either side. It would be very difficult to find a home anywhere with equal expansive ocean views.
From the ground level of this home you will enter the house through a door that will take you into a foyer. Adjacent to this foyer area is a small open room (similar to a mud room) with benches and wall mounted bathing suit hooks which makes a convenient spot for changing into dry clothes after showering outside and coming in from a long day at the beach. From this room you can also take the elevator and be swiftly transported back up to the floor level of your choice. Or you can also take the stairs if you prefer.
As you enter this luxurious oceanfront home on the first living level by way of the outside staircase, you will find three large bedrooms, two bathrooms, a walk-in laundry room with full size washer and dryer and a 1st floor living room. There is also direct access to the elevator from this level.
Bedroom 1 on this level serves as a master suite and has northern exposure oceanfront views and is equipped with a king bed, end tables, dresser, chair and a ceiling fan.

As you travel up to the next living level, either by elevator or by stairs you will first approach the large family room which is on the ocean side of the home.

From the dining room there is direct access out to the oceanfront deck where you will find an additional outdoor dining area (table & chairs), if you prefer to have your meals while enjoying the cool ocean breezes and the captivating ocean views.
Directly adjoining the dining area is the kitchen which in most cases is considered the heart of the home, and what a heart it is. From the kitchen you can look in one direction and have a great unobstructed view of the glistening Atlantic Ocean and then standing in the same location you just turn your head and you will have a unobstructed view of the Intracoastal Waterway. From every window on this floor level you will have a fabulous water view, whether the ocean or the ICW. The kitchen is equipped with everything needed for basic meal preparations as well as all required major and small appliances. The major appliances are all stainless steel and include an oversize refrigerator with water and ice dispenser, dishwasher, cook top stove, built in oven and microwave.

This area showcases some of the best views on Topsail Island. Whether ocean or ICW, this level overlooks it all. One of the sleeping areas on this level is equipped with a pyramid bed that will sleep 3 comfortably. On the other end of the balcony loft area you will find a daybed with a trundle underneath.
