Located on the north end of Topsail Island, North Topsail Beach is a barrier island with the Atlantic on one side and the Intra Coastal Waterway on the other. Our home has its' own beach on the ocean. Since North Topsail is primarily residential, the beaches are seldom crowded. In the summer, our weather is usually about 10 degrees cooler than the mainland because of those off shore breezes. Since we are only a 2 minute drive to the bridge to the mainland, grocery and other shopping and restaurants are only about a 7 minute drive. The home was custom built by the owner, who was the general contractor, in 2007. It has been elegantly and tastefully furnished and outfitted.
The views are even more breath taking from the second floor. The great room, kitchen, and dining areas were designed with an open plan to maximize the views. Similarly, the corner fire place, with a 45' flat screen TV/DVD above, is situated for viewing from anywhere in the kitchen or living area. The master king bedroom suite with custom bathroom and private balcony is on the second floor. The half bathroom is also on this floor.
The third floor has the penthouse suite with a queen size bed and full custom bathroom. From your private balcony, you can see down the beach for miles, enjoy a fabulous sunrise or sunset, or watch the sailboats transiting the intracoastal waterway.
This is a fully equipped luxury property. Come stay with us and we know you shall come back again and again.

We're Jim and Paulette McGrath. Jim was the builder and general contractor of our beautiful oceanfront duplex in 2007.
Jim built it much stronger and insulated it much better, for sound reduction and climate extremes, than building codes required.
Jim wanted an oceanfront house ever since he was 10 years old. That was when his parents rented a house on the beach facing the Atlantic Ocean in Long Beach, NY. He fell in love with the sounds of the shore break, the cool breezes, playing in the waves and building sand castles.
About 13 years ago, Jim found Topsail Island. It wasn't as busy as Myrtle Beach or the Outer Banks. But, the quality of the uncrowded sandy beaches and caribbean-like, always changing ocean colors, caught his eye. Also, he liked that the climate was more moderate than the steamy more southern states and the average ocean temperatures were much warmer than the colder northern states.
Thankfully, it is still the same today.
