.Looking for gasp-worthy panoramas of the shimmering Atlantic? This four-bedroom, 4.5 bath Dudley Parker-built Executive retreat is perched up a wooded, winding drive-emerging above Bald Head's high dunes' treetops to reveal spectacular seascapes. Beyond the first level's very private front and side porches, this home's first floor foyer offers a warm welcome. Off of it are three suites, each including its own full, private bath with granite counters and tiled showers. The first two are natural light-filled Queens with generous closets and storage. The third sunny bedroom is furnished with two twins and offers access to the front porch. Upstairs (or up the elevator) a vaulted-ceiling open floor plan makes the most of its walls of windows by highlighting ocean panoramas extending from Frying Pan Shoals all the way down South Beach. The bright living space is anchored by a gas fireplace, features built-ins and extends egress to the home's piece-de-resistance-its deep, covered water-facing front and side porches. You'll spend contented hours here rocking while relishing shimmering seascapes and savoring snacks as well as salty breezes at the al fresco dining area. If inside meals are your preference, you'll still be surrounded by briny views at the generous, window-surrounded dining table. Nearby a granite breakfast bar offers even more seating. The gourmet kitchen serves up stainless appliances, plenty of storage and counter space and both water and forested dune views. Down the hall, the King Master boasts additional sunlit water perspectives, its own access to the upper porch, a private office and an oversize Master bath with a his/her vanity, a water closet, and a large sea-glass pebble/tiled shower. This level also houses the laundry and a half bath. Conveniently located near the Island's center-close to both the beach and shops and with a good rental history, this gem is an ideal BHI haven. BHI House or Lifestyle, and Shoals membership available separately.
