I am a composer and professor of music in Williamstown, MA. I live in a beautiful area, the Berkshire Mountains, but there is nothing like the beach, the sound of the ocean, the warm temperatures of NC! This is why after many months of searching I found the perfect getaway!
David Kechley purchased this house in 2009
I taught at UNCW for 7 years before moving to Massachusetts and still have many friends and colleagues in the Wilmington area. I may eventually retire there and this is why I chose to buy a vacation home in Carolina Beach which I rent out when I am not using it.
The house is located within steps of the beach-no roads to cross. It is what is called second row, but it is closer to the beach than a lot of houses that call themselves beach front and it has great ocean views from the deck and living and even from the front upstairs bedrooms. The property is located in Carolina Beach so is close to activities, restaurants, pier, bar on the beach, etc. It is 20-30 minutes from Wilmington which, the largest city in Southeastern NC.
