WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH NC 28480
How much southern charm can you possibly squeeze into one house? Visit this oceanfront stunner on Wrightsville Beach and you’ll have the answer. And, it sits right next door to the iconic De Laurentiis mansion-bonus! Located at 18 E. Asheville Street, this custom-built luxury estate exemplifies the Carolina waterfront style.
Built in 1983, this five bedroom, six and a half bath home is ahead of its time in form, function, and style. Whether you make this dream property a private coastal getaway or a shared family retreat, no one will be disappointed with craftsman-style details like wide porch pillars, porthole windows, interior columns, built-ins, marble-surround fireplace, and dramatic wood floors.
From the moment you enter the great room on the main level of this three-story, 3783 square foot beauty, you’ll be blown away by the non-stop views of Wrightsville’s famous white sandy beach and crystal blue water. The soft Carolina pallet of seafoam green and wide open floor plan immediately lightens your mood.
The chef’s kitchen has an expansive granite covered island bar perfect for entertaining guests. After dinner, grab your coffee and move the conversation to the separate sitting room just adjacent to the enormous oceanfront deck and watch the sunset over the Atlantic.
Beautiful white crown moulding, wide door and window trim, and plantation blinds continue the craftsman detail throughout the home.
The remarkable penthouse master suite has even more details, including a tray ceiling, more portholes, never-ending windows, and French doors leading to a private balcony.
The luxurious en suite features a custom tiled walk-in shower, garden tub with tile surround, and a double vanity. You’ll never want to leave the penthouse!
Three of the five guest quarters enjoy private baths as well.
The exterior won’t disappoint either with its native plants and shrubs like palm trees and sea oats, and a boardwalk-inspired sidewalk, all of which can be enjoyed from the three levels of covered and uncovered decks and balconies. Oh, those decks! This is one amazing home, but you might just find yourself spending more time outside than in, on the decks watching the sun rise and set and watching the waves roll in and out.
