Everyone know that the key to real estate is LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION! If you are looking for the perfect location for a beach home, complete with amenities and proximity to the best the coast has to offer then look to further! 111 Santa Marie Drive in Emerald Isle, NC has just come available and will be hotly pursued by those most loving the coastal way of life!
Beach access is just a couple of houses away. You can walk to the beautiful white sandy beaches of the Crystal Coast anytime you wish. You never have to worry if you forgot anything or if you need another cool drink or more suntan lotion while on the beach. Home is just a few steps away!
The new Emerald Isle boat launch facility is literally just a few 100 yards away from this home. Located on Bogue Sound the boat launch encompasses 16 acres, has 4 ramps, capable of handling 125 vehicle/trailer spaces. The boat basin and outgoing canal was dredged to 4 feet at low tide. You can launch your boat in the protection and safety of Bogue Sound and be just a few minutes away from Bogue Inlet and the Atlantic Ocean. Or just travel a few more minutes and be at the historic Swansboro waterfront.
Are you worried where you will keep your boat? Don’t be because you can keep it at the house! The neighborhood has no Home Owner Association (HOA) fees and no restrictions on things such as where you can keep you boat!
While 111 Santa Maria Drive is situated ideally between the Bogue Sound and the Atlantic Ocean, the property itself is located in a well-protected area. The yard has a multitude of live oaks. The property is located on the street corner and comes with a fenced in yard.
The exterior of this home was recently painted. It also comes complete with working storm shutters around the windows.
The home is 2 ½ stories high. The ground floor has a beautiful guest room/entertainment suite that is not included in the over-all square footage of the house. This ground floor suite has heat and air conditioning, a full bathroom, cable and all utilities.
Right outside the entrance way to the ground level suite is the elevator. It is very convenient and roomy. You can go from your car to the elevator to the first floor with the push of a button. You’ll never have to worry about lugging groceries, carrying dirty laundry or toting a cooler full of food and drinks up and down the stairs!
The ground level has parking for two cars underneath the house. Not 1 but 2 locked storage rooms (also underneath the house) and an outdoor shower to wash off the sand for when you come back from the beach!
Beside the main entrance to the house on the first floor atop the staircase is the screened in porch. This porch is nestled among big live oaks and offers an excellent way to sit and relax, hear the ocean waves, feel the sea breeze but stay out of the burning sun and the bother of bugs!
As you enter house you first come into the living room. The living room is large and spacious and comes complete with hardwood floors. Adjacent to the living room is 1of 3 bedrooms. On the other side of the living room is the dining area. It has a vaulted ceiling and is well suited for both family and formal dining.
Continuing on through the dining area we come to the kitchen with its ceramic tile floors. There is a large pantry right beside the refrigerator with the entire kitchen offering room and ease of cooking.
One of the great features about the kitchen is that the elevator doors are beside the entrance way. You can grab your groceries and go from car to elevator and elevator to kitchen in a snap!
In back of the kitchen is a sunroom which also has ceramic tile floors. This sunroom is heated and cooled for year round enjoyment!
The top level floor is where you will find the master bedroom and bathroom. This bathroom has ceramic tile floors and a standing tiled shower. To help complete this top floor is the third bedroom just perfect for kids or guests.
All in all there are 3 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms, the guest suite/entertainment on the ground floor with full bathroom. There is a 2-car carport underneath the house as well as two large storage units, screened in porch for summer enjoyment and enclosed, heated and cooled sunroom for year round enjoyment.
Last and certainly not least; this home has been carefully and lovingly maintained. The home just had a home inspection performed by a NC licensed inspector. With the exception of a few very minor details which were rectified immediately, the home passed with flying colors! This is a house anybody would be proud (and comfortable) to call home.
Location, amenities, the beach, the sound, convenience, no HOA dues, huge boat ramp nearby on one side and the beautiful Atlantic Ocean on the other! This is truly a rare opportunity for you to have a vacation home or a permanent residence!
