Steeped in history, the sleepy town of Shallotte, North Carolina lies between the twin hubbubs of Wilmington, North Carolina to the north, and Myrtle Beach to the south. "It's a quiet oasis," says life-long resident Jabin Norris, president of PROACTIVE Real Estate. The agency charmingly offers Starbucks coffee and draft beer on tap in its café office, the only office of its kind in the area.
Here, where the magnificent views of the Atlantic’s waves abound, a globe-trotting client chose to build a beach house in 2014. Unfortunately, the client was unable to find the time to enjoy the home, and thus put it on the market. The candy-colored, Hawaiian plantation-style home, sits directly upon the Shallotte inlet surrounded by verandas.
Wonderfully open and great for entertaining, the living room features Brazilian cherry flooring, coffered ceilings, an extensive entertainment system, wet bar, and a sweep of sliding windows that effectively opens the room to the vast deck and extraordinary views.
Ideal for the serious cook (or caterer), the kitchen is fitted with rough-finished quartz counters and tiled walls. A commercial grade stove with pot filler and second oven with microwave and convection modes line one of the walls. The kitchen also includes a vast bar and prep area, pantry and more.
The home boasts three bedrooms, each featuring luxuriously appointed en suites. The Master bathroom suite includes an oversized shower and a whirlpool bath, as well as an office, a room-sized closet and a private deck.
Built to withstand ocean squalls, the home also features an extraordinary home automation, including hard-wired Ethernet, Vera Z-Wave technology and an eight-camera security system. Equipped with green features! The ground walls are solid concrete construction.
The site is so peaceful you can hear the gulls lay eggs, yet perfectly situated just five minutes from the beach, downtown shopping, major roadways and an airport for your private jet. If you prefer driving your own auto, there's a three-car garage for the Porsche, the Lamborghini, and the Maserati (with room leftover for beach chairs).
