Bald Head Island NC, 28461

Description

Magnificent 5 BR/5.5BA Castello Della Balena (Castle of the Whale) sits across the natural contours of 2.56 acres of Bald Head's dune ridge overlooking the Atlantic's Cape of Fear and providing 270 degree ocean views that include East Beach, South Beach and the Frying Pan Shoals. Designed by award-winning architect Chuck Dietsche, almost every detail of this one-of-a-kind home is custom designed and crafted. The reverse floor-plan offers three luxurious ocean suites-the Baleen, the Jonah and the Tail-on the first level. Up the stairs or elevator, the open main level-punctuated by floor-to-ceiling rafters reminiscent of a whale's ribcage-begins with the window-embraced living area and is anchored by a massive fireplace. The warm hardwood floors and ship-lapped walls keep this spacious spot warm and inviting. Beyond, the dining space centers on a table that seats twelve and is flanked by artisan buffets depicting the sun and the moon. Nearby, the breakfast bar seats six more and abuts the gourmet kitchen's island. Boasting room for several chefs, this area is surrounded by ocean-view windows and is equipped with professional-grade stainless appliances, plenty of prep counters and crafted cabinetry. If dining al fresco suits you, step outside onto the generous oceanfront screen dining porch and enjoy. This level also houses an entertainment room and, behind a secret door, the Grand Master suite-an indulgent retreat with magical views, a cozy sitting room, a spa-like bath, a huge walk-in closet and a private ocean screened porch. The home's crofter, above the garage, provides an additional very private bedroom suite or office/studio. Outside, multiple covered porches, sundecks, screened porches, and the widow's walk dazzle with breathtaking sea panoramas, cooling breezes and restful ocean song. Plus, direct beach access is available via your own private boardwalk. Please see agents remarks.
