Nestled on a quiet lane in sought-after Cape Fear Station on Bald Head Island, this four-bedroom, 3.5 bath retreat greets with great curb appeal from its white picket-fenced yard to its charming double front porches. Step up to the first floor's covered rocking chair porch and let yourself stop, relax and listen to birdsong or the hum of cicadas. Inside this reverse floor plan, you'll find a large foyer with high ceilings, hardwoods and white wainscoting. Off of this are two bedrooms overlooking the front porch. The first is furnished with two Twins and features an updated full en suite with a granite vanity and pebble-tiled shower. The second bedroom offers a Queen and shares another well-appointed bath with a second Queen bedroom. The second Queen overlooks the home's screened dining porch. Beyond that is a very private deck, two-cart garage and the home's rear alley driveway. This floor also houses the laundry room.Upstairs, the white wainscoting, high ceilings, open floor plan and myriads of windows support this level's cheery, natural light-filled warmth. The generous kitchen proffers granite counters and plenty of room for multiple chefs. Adjacent, the central dining area easily accommodates eight and is convenient to the half bath. Beyond, the very comfortable living space is anchored by a fireplace, sided by built-ins and would be the perfect spot for movie-watching, game playing or cozy conversations. All of these are fronted by a deep, second-story covered porch that provides views all the way to the water. This will be your favorite spot for morning coffee or afternoon relaxation. The home's Queen Master suite on this floor tenders a desk and sitting area, a good-size walk-in closet and a spa-like Master bath with a jetted garden tub, separate shower and his and her vanities.Located close to the Conservancy, Shoals Club, Cape Fear Commons and prestigious East Beach, this property conveys with four- and six-passenger golf carts.
