Magnificent majesty abounds in this custom oceanfront masterpiece. Situated just off the sandy shores of Ocean Isle Beach's West end, this home is a crowning achievement of local premier builder, Ernie Crews. Boasting over 5,500 square feet, featuring 6 bedrooms, each with their own ensuite, a master suite that encompasses the entire third floor, multiple sitting rooms, a library, master chef kitchen, massive tiki bar and grills by the pool, and numerous decks to capture the fantastic ocean views, not one detail has been missed nor spared in this home.

Upon entering you'll feel just how special this estate truly is. Opening into an arched foyer over wide-plank hickory hardwood floors, immediately you capture views through the main living room of the Atlantic Ocean. Kick back and relax here in the main living because the journey through this home is just beginning. The open and airy feel of the Great Room is accentuated above, opening fully to the second floor and framed by a walk around balcony. To the right, the main dining area and kitchen adjoin the living over a massive kitchen island. Specifically designed to appease even a 5-star chef, the kitchen's highlights include honed granite countertops, elite Miele appliances, a Sub-zero dual fridge and freezer, wine and drink fridge, coffee/tea station, ice maker, Wolf gas range, dual ovens, instant hot water, a farmhouse sink and two dishwashers all framed by custom cabinetry by Ocean Woodworking.

To the front of the home, off the kitchen, is an intimate dining room with custom china cabinetry and a beautiful hand painted dining table, which is negotiable to convey. Rounding out this floor are a powder room for guests and two guest bedrooms, each with their own baths. One bedroom to the street side and the second facing the ocean with access to the main deck to enjoy the beach breeze. One bedroom to the street side and the second facing the ocean with access to the main deck to enjoy the beach breeze. The main deck features a recessed seating area just off the Great Room to enjoy the beautiful views while being protected from rain or direct sun.

Taking the stairs via a vaulted vestibule or opt to ride the elevator to the second floor, you land in the Gallery, overlooking the Great Room below, defined by hand cut and crafted balusters and framed on either side with bookshelves for the owner's library. A Powder Room here services guests needs without going through a bedroom. Straight ahead, a game room pulls in the ocean views and features a full wet bar with an ice maker and drink fridge. Custom built-in seating along the picture windows make this a perfect spot to cozy up and enjoy a good book or soak up the scenery. Right of the Game Room is a Family Room to pile in and watch a movie or venture out onto the covered porch with a partial open porch area. One bedroom on this level features a private balcony, perfect for a guest suite. Two other bedrooms front along the street side of this home and each provide ample room, closets and spacious bathrooms. Each of the closets in the home come equipped with an Elfa Closet System for easy organization and arrangement of garments.

Heading to the master suite on the third floor, you'll be amazed by the privacy and spacious gratuity befitting the owners of this estate. To the left, you'll find a fitness studio and private office. Moving ahead, a custom designed half wall serves as storage but also as the headboard of the king sized bed built in the middle of the suite. A hidden TV will arise from the footboard should you tire of the magnificent ocean views from these chambers. A full coffee bar with ice maker and fridge as well as a lounge seating area add to the opulence of this suite. The master bath provides a spa-like experience with a steam shower and soaking tub, dual vanities and water closet. A private utility/laundry room round out the amenities of this top floor.

On the ground floor of the home, the garage area provides plenty of parking on either side of the entry stairs. A massive his and hers outdoor shower provides a place to wash the sand from the beach before jumping into the in-ground pool. A resort worthy tiki bar features 2 beer taps, fridge, ice maker, a grill, flat top grill and boiler grate for making the family a low country boil. The leathered granite tops add to the luxury of this outdoor space. Fully fenced and the lush landscaping make this a true coastal retreat. Last but certainly not least, a private walkway services access to the white sands of Ocean Isle Beach.

Other features of this estate include a geothermal heating and cooling system, an air purification system in the HVAC, heat cloud insulation, metal roof, lightning rod protection system on the roof, Lutron lighting system, Sonos sound system, whole house alarm system, Brazilian Ipe decking, custom colored Pella windows and doors, and is being offered furnished with some exclusions such as art and family estate pieces. Much of the furniture was specially selected for each place or was specifically designed for and built in place. For instance the kitchen table will easily seat 16 and had to be measured, cut and built in place. Exclusions list provided in documents.

This is one of, if not the finest, home on Ocean Isle Beach and one that will likely never be recreated due to the size, features and craftsmanship. You must see it to believe what a marvel it truly is. Now is your chance to own this extraordinary estate, call today for a private consultation and tour.
