Located in the heart of Bald Head Island, this four bedroom/three-and-a-half bath home offers the quiet of the Maritime Forest while being just minutes from the beach, shops, marsh and marina. Plus, it features charming artistic touches inside and out. The first highlight you'll notice- as you come up to the front porch-is the ocean shades of the front steps' tiled backsplashes. Inside, the heart-of-pine floors lead to an airy, cathedral-ceilinged gathering space with plenty of natural light (from its wall of windows), ship-lapped walls and a cozy fireplace. Beyond is the light-filled dining area with striking, one-of-a-kind blown-glass wall art. The dining table is set for six and an adjacent breakfast bar accommodates even more for snacks or meals. The ample kitchen boasts handsome custom built-ins as well as granite counters. Nearby, the large screened porch beckons you to sit and enjoy your favorite beverage while soaking in birdsong. Steps down from it lead to a very private deck and outdoor conversation spot. This floor also includes a powder room and the King Master suite with its pampering full bath, extensive closets/storage and private deck access. At the top of the stairs is a reading loft with a comfy, pillowed built-in bench. The laundry room is also on this floor as well as two Queen en-suites. The second Queen bedroom not only grants access to a private upper sun deck, but also reveals -behind barn doors- the fourth bedroom (which is furnished with two twins).BHI House Membership available for separate purchase. 2 Golf Carts to convey.
