Originally from France and the UK, we have lived near Chapel Hill, North Carolina since 1995. We and our three children have enjoyed many visits to Bald Head Island over the years. We have owned the house since April 2012.
We love the beauty, peace and tranquility that Bald Head Island offers. We particularly enjoy the East Beach end of the island where our home sits. The house is a three minute golf cart ride from the Shoals Club.
The house is sheltered in a large and very private wooded lot but is just three minutes' easy walk to gorgeous East beach. House is just a couple of minutes' golf cart ride from Shoals Club. You can enjoy listening to the the surf from the screened in porches.
