WALK THROUGH THE "BELLY OF A WHALE" WHEN YOU STAY IN CASTELLO DELLA BALENA!

Bald Head Island House Rental Photos and Description

Can you imagine traversing through the belly of a whale? That’s exactly what you will do in this immaculate oceanfront home set high upon the Bald Head Island dunes! (1K, 1Q, 4TW, SL8)

Can you imagine traversing through the belly of a whale? That’s exactly what you will do in this immaculate oceanfront home set high upon the Bald Head Island dunes! This masterpiece of architecture is UNMATCHED on the East Cost and sits 40+ feet above sea level, overlooking the Cape Fear of Bald Head Island. Castello della Balena offers direct, private beach access from its large open decks. Amazing views of both South and East Beach and the twenty two miles of Frying Pan Shoals. This expansive home has all the extras you would expectand everything the imagination can conjure.

Upstairs in the main living level, as you enter a rare and exceptional experience of beautifully integrated design, a story book comes to life before your eyes. Take your time proceeding through the belly of a beautiful whale with elaborate floor to ceiling rafters resembling the ribs of a whale. Each rib has recessed lighting, along with a colored lighting system for various evening mood effects. Window seating with extra storage lines each wall. The living room fireplace has gorgeous, elaborate tile work, and dramatic chandeliers can be easily raised and lowered.The living room is an open and inviting space, providing the very best views and comfort for family and guests. A screened-in porch can be accessed close to the dining room and kitchen, allowing for a shaded space to dine while listening to the waves against the sand.

The living room and dining room are separated by two opposing custom sideboards, appropriately named "Sun & Moon" for their gorgeous custom designs. One is a full wet bar while the other accommodates china and crystal. A long, custom carved dining table depicts incredible ocean designs carved into the wood by artist Michael Trivieri, covered by glass and surrounded by Thomas Mosier chairs. There is not another table like this in the world – it is truly one a kind! The kitchen offers ample storage and premiere appliances... a place of culinary adventure.

Impressive oceanfront views from every room are just one of many incredible characteristics this home has to offer. There are three downstairs bedrooms - one inside the home and two that are independent of the main house, each having direct access to the entertainment-size deck. Both independent bedrooms have full bathrooms with impressive tile work, and generous walk-in closets. The downstairs bedroom in the main house, also with tiled full bathroom and walk-in closet, includes a recessed trundle bed built into the wall with shelving for books. The first floor also has a utility room with two wine coolers and an industrial refrigerator, also an elevator accessing all three levels of the home.

The upstairs master bedroom is unique as well with a built-in vanity and full master bathroom that includes his & hers sinks, a large walk-in shower with multiple high-end shower heads, and bidet/commode with heated seat. The upstairs office, accessed via breezeway between the main home and secondary abode, is spacious, private and accommodating.

There is a TEC Grill and plenty of room for large gatherings. A long, private boardwalk will escort you through the sea oats and dunes, down to the sparkling white capped waves of South Beach and Frying Pan Shoals. When you are done lounging in the sunny breezes of Bald Head Island, cool off in the private outdoor fiberglass shower and enjoy refreshments from the outdoor mini bar.
