Overview

If you thought your chances of owning a beautiful, contemporary custom home on an acre of land situated on the Cape Fear River were non existent, think again. This spectacular Southport home, updated in 2016, is nestled amongst majestic live oak trees for privacy, but opens out to magnificent views of the estuary. You can truly watch the world go by as ships, yachts and sailboats pass through. If you're a boater, there is a CAMA permit to allow for a dock and the bulkhead is already installed. The living room showcases the home with soaring ceiling, exposed rafters, fireplace and huge windows.The den also features a stone fireplace, wood walls and ceilings and panoramic water views. Add custom cabinetry, shutters, high end appliances, professional landscaping and you have your dream home! The kitchen comes equipped with cherry cabinetry, granite countertops, Subzero refrigerator and wine cooler, Dacor oven, microwave and warming drawer, Wolf cooktop and a quiet Bosch dishwasher. It has a dumbwaiter that goes to the laundry downstairs. There are 3 bedrooms, two on the main level, of which one has a walkout to the garden. The oversized den with a stone fireplace could easily be a fourth bedroom. There are also 3 full bathrooms, an office and a large laundry room. The master bathroom features cherry cabinetry, Carrera marble, a towel warming drawer, and on oversized custom shower. The master bedroom has a substantial walk in closet and a private deck for those mornings when you just want to step out and enjoy your morning coffee in solitude as you read or watch the boats going by. The deck and gazebo off the kitchen and den make a seamless transition to the outdoors with the trees and bird feeder attracting many feathered friends. The grounds are meticulously maintained and if you look outside the living room window you'll see a magnificently restored working fountain, purchased from the Governor's estate in Wilmington. Don't miss this home and it's superb location. The lawns are fully irrigated and include in ground lighting. There is additional lighting in the trees to make those evenings on the porch even more enjoyable. This lot is special because it is situated at an estuary with the Cape Fear River, Atlantic ocean and Intracoastal waterway converging. The bulkhead is upgraded with a weeping vent that drains water off the lawn. Nothing has been overlooked on this property.
