Designed by architect Charles Dietsche, this West Indies inspired masterpiece is set high on a bluff overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway and Atlantic Ocean. One of coastal North Carolina’s most iconic waterfront residences, this 7,440 square foot residence has sold for $4.8 million. The residence was offered completely furnished, decorated and turn-key for $5.5 million. Precision craftsmanship can be found in every finish of this magnificent residence. The home is grand in scale, and filled with soothing colour palettes of gray, sea salt and aquamarine hues that contrast elegantly with dark Brazilian Walnut floors. Overhead, coffered ceilings connect gracefully with exposed beams and louvered transom windows that give a sense of grandeur with a distinctly coastal flare. Adjoining either side of the great room are spacious common areas. The south wing features the kitchen, formal dining area, butlers pantry, reading nook and home office. The kitchen is a chef’s dream with a 6 burner range including griddle, warming drawer, massive handcrafted vent hood, and sparkling recycled-bottle Vihara backsplash. Opposite, the living area is anchored by a parlor with floating wet bar, 945 bottle climate controlled wine cellar, fireplace and waterfront billiards room.
One of the most dramatic features of the home are the great room’s sliding doors that open the living area to the poolside veranda. The infinity pool blends seamlessly into the blue waters of the Intracoastal Waterway and the waves breaking in the Atlantic Ocean. Upstairs, the master suite features built in headboard, fireplace, and spectacular views of the sea. The master bath features shimmering glass tile shower, classic vanities and soaking tub. The second floor includes a full guest suite with kitchenette, laundry, bath and adjoining bunkroom. The third floor tower provides perfect space for a state of the art fitness center. Exterior features include lush landscaping, infinity pool, spa, outdoor fireplace and putting green. Once called the most coveted house on television, the home’s interior was the film setting for Madeleine Stowe’s Grayson Manor, in the primetime television series ‘Revenge’. Crews filmed the pilot episode in this very house and once the series was picked up, a full-scale, nearly identical set was built in a studio. Exterior shots were filmed at a substantial East Hampton estate with minor digital additions – that recently sold for $16.5 million! This furnished Charles Dietsche-designed residence was on the market for $5.5 million with Nick Phillips of Sotheby’s International Realty.
