Rejuvenate your spirit in this inviting 3 BR, 2 BA canal home with a boat dock and tranquil water views from its porches. Not only is this home an ideal choice as a primary residence, a rental property, or both, it's located within walking distance of the beach. National Geographic recently named Sunset Beach as one of the best beaches in the world, and with good reason. In addition to the sand and surf, this beach town offers unique attractions like The Kindred Spirit Mailbox, Bird Island, The Ingram Planetarium, pristine golf courses, and plenty of refined dining and shopping choices. Plus, you're only 45 minutes away from Myrtle Beach and 60 minutes away from the charming and historic city of Wilmington. Start your day on the main level's screened back porch or on the upper level's balcony and enjoy a cup of coffee as you listen to the relaxing sounds of the water. Later, pilot your boat to the Intracoastal Waterway for a fishing trip or a cruise up and down the Carolina coast. Since there is plenty of yard and patio space, enjoy hosting outdoor parties or grilling up the day's latest catch. Indoors, the home's semi-open floor plan offers a spacious living room and dining area, and there's lots of storage and counter space in the kitchen. You'll also find the bedrooms on the main floor, including a master with canal views. Other features include an outdoor shower, ground level storage/workshop space, and an upper-level loft, perfect for a game room, home office, or reading nook.
