Classic elegance with a view! Nestled at the end of a cul-de-sac and at the edge of the pond in the Ocean Ridge Plantation development, this 1.5 story, 3 BR, 3.5 BA custom-built, brick home provides you with gorgeous views throughout the year. In addition to the amenities that the 55+ community offers, like an exclusive clubhouse and beach house, fishing pond, and access to five Big Cats golf courses, there's no need to compromise on how to spend your day. The charming and historic city of Wilmington, the ocean and sand in Myrtle Beach and the Brunswick Beaches, fine dining, and fabulous boutiques are all within reach. Once you've soaked up the Carolina sun, relax at home in style. Prepare meals for friends and family in the lovely kitchen that includes stainless steel appliances, Corian counter tops, and a breakfast bar. Either enjoy a good book and a cup of coffee in the sitting room, or lounge in the living room by the built-in fireplace to watch a movie on chilly winter afternoons. The screened back porch delivers a front row seat to nature for catching a glimpse of fish jumping in the pond and birds fluttering in the air all year long. On the patio, grill up some steaks and choose to dine al fresco on the porch or in the spacious dining room, and you'll always keep the scenery. When it's time for bed, your view to the outdoors continues in the master bedroom with plenty of space and an en suite bathroom with two sinks, two closets, a shower, and a soaking tub. Guests or family can retreat to their side of the home with this split-bedroom floor plan, where a Jack and Jill bathroom serves the two additional guest bedrooms. The home also gives you a laundry room, an office, an upstairs bonus room with closet and new mini-split HVAC, a two-car garage, new hardwood floors, new tankless water heater, and two HVAC units on the main level.
