Featured Listing: 8232 Bald Eagle Lane in Wilmington, NC

Why waste the time and energy to build your waterfront dream home when it is already waiting for you? Even better, it's just a wedge shot from the prestigious Eagle Point Golf Club which will host the 2017 Wells Fargo PGA Tournament! Located along a pristine stretch of the Intracoastal Waterway, near Wilmington, NC, Wrightsville Beach and Figure Eight Island, this one-of-a-kind luxury property is an elegant example of classic architecture that marries form and function.

Built in 2006 by one of the state's most innovative, mindful builders, the goal was to create a home that would serve as both an idyllic coastal escape and family compound. One visit to 8232 Bald Eagle Lane, and you'll agree that goal was surpassed! The attention to detail involved in the compound's design is immediately apparent thanks to the charmingly landscaped grounds. Native plants and shrubs gracefully offset the 8,850 square foot, 6-bedroom main house as well as the adjacent 1,800 square foot, 1-bedroom carriage house. Both residences have 2-car garages.

The 3-story main house is a true Southern beauty. An inviting front entrance gives way to an absolutely stunning interior with custom features too numerous to mention. However, there are a few standouts, such as locally built black walnut cabinetry, hand-hewn pine floors, Pella windows throughout, and fully tiled, spa worthy bathrooms-complete with German-made fixtures. In addition to solid, no expense spared construction, both properties are state-of-the-art Green Builds. A few impressive high-tech components include 50 solar panels, icynene insulation and cement bond Hardie Shake shingles.

It is difficult to say which aspect is more impressive-the home itself or the property it's situated on. With the Intracoastal Waterway as a backdrop, residents are provided with unparalleled views-year round. Two full porches and a ground level portico grace the entire east side of the home. In addition to being the perfect places for entertaining and relaxing, they are also ideal vantage points for taking in the glowing natural canvas of blues, greens, and golds that illuminate the water and lush marsh grass. Living right on the waterway means easy access to boating, paddling, fishing and bird watching. How does a morning kayak trip to Figure Eight sound? From breathtaking sunrises to dazzling sunsets, living here offers an immediate connection to this home's spectacular natural setting. Of course there is a private dock, complete with a covered gazebo and two boatlifts that can accommodate 32 to 34-foot vessels.
