About Diane Brashear
We are Andy and Diane Brashear. We built BEYOND THE BLUE in 2005 as a retirement home for our parents, Rusty and Mary, and as a vacation home for us. We met at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. After a sojourn in England, where Andy was in graduate school and Diane worked at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, we traveled extensively around Europe before retuning to the States to be married in Cincinnati (where Diane grew up) in 2005. We lived in Chicago for three years and now live in a wonderfully remodeled 1913 house in Denver's Washington Park. We love the mountains' outdoor lifestyle, but must travel south to engage in our other love, the ocean.
Diane Brashear purchased this house in 2005
Why Diane Brashear chose North Topsail Beach
BEYOND THE BLUE is located on the beautiful, wide, unspoiled, uncrowded beach of North Topsail Island. The ocean water here is warm, clean and a beautiful blue-green in color. When we saw the color of the water and the broad pristine beach, we knew that this was where we had to be.
What makes this house unique
We take long walks on the pristine beach, swim and surf in the ocean, and relax in the pool and hot tub. Cooking is fun and easy with the extremely well equipped kitchen and the endless supply of delicious ingredients from the waters surrounding Topsail: fresh shrimp, scallops, oysters, flounder, clams, tuna, and on and on. When the sun sets, the theater room has 110' screen two tiers of electronically reclining seats. Some family members quite regularly fall asleep there. Because we built the house ourselves, we got to indulge our sense of fun by painting wall murals in strategic places, like the elevator and the laundry room. We hope you bring your sense of fun and whimsy, along with your wish, in flights of peace and fancy, to go beyond the blue.
