Overview

About the property

3 Bed, 2.5 Bath Home Surrounded By Water! Bring Your Boat, Jet Skis, Kayaks, Etc

'The best view I have ever seen on the Island.' Welcome to "How Sweet the Sound"' where you can truly have it all! Why settle for just the beach when you can have boating, fishing, a pool and hot tub, basketball court and more right at the house? This brand new deep-water sound-front property features an elevator, and is nearly completely surrounded by water with stunning panoramic views!

This stylishly fun 2100 sq. foot duplex house is located in Topsail Beach on the water of Banks Channel in the private gated community of Queens Grant. Unlike other houses that only offer the beach, at "How Sweet the Sound" there are unlimited things to do. Choose to spend your days by walking to the never crowded beach through the private access, only 600 feet away, bring your boat, jet skis, kayaks, and paddle boards and spend the day on the water easily accessed through the private boat launch and docks with immediate access to deep water, the inter-coastal waterway, and the ocean. You can keep your boat at the dock yards away from the house for your whole stay! Choose to soak up some rays at the huge pool (open Memorial Day Weekend through October) and hot tub. Catch your own dinner! There is no need to go to the pier since you can fish, crab, and shrimp right from the house and clean your catch at the fish cleaning sink in the neighborhood! Have a picnic at the community shelter or play basketball on the neighborhood court. You won't find a deck with a better view or closer to the water on the island than those at 'How Sweet the Sound'.

Spend your evenings watching the dolphin jump and boats go by as the sun sets over the water directly off the decks. Being nearly completely surrounded by water, this house is very quiet and private. There is no road traffic to be heard and the most noise you will hear is the occasional fish jumping, Osprey calling from the nest on the channel marker not far away, or occasional fishing boat passing by. Finish off your evening by watching a movie on the 55 inch Smart HD TV. There is high speed wifi throughout the house.

About the house: This reverse floor plan custom house was furnished by a professional interior decorator, and is perhaps the most breathtaking house on the island. The house is on the deep water sound and has some of the best fishing on the island right from the lawn at the house. The ground level features a carport for two vehicles with additional private parking in the front of the house. There is a large storage closet with a gas grill (bring your own propane) for your bikes, beach, and fishing gear for the fresh catch you just reeled in from the yard! There is also an outside shower with hot and cold water. A wet weather entry leads inside the ground level which features a foyer and the elevator. No need to lug suitcases and bags of groceries up multiple flights of stairs, just stick them in the interior elevator and you are all set! This is a great asset for elderly guests.

The second floor features three bedrooms and two full baths. The master bedroom has a king size bed, walk in closet, 40 inch LED TV, walk out deck (featuring a hammock chair) overlooking the water, and has unspoiled water views out of its windows. There is nothing better than opening your eyes in the morning and seeing the water shimmering a few feet away outside your window. The second bedroom has a queen size bed, access to the deck overlooking the water, walk in closet, and 40 inch LED TV. The third bedroom has a bunk bed (twin over full) with an extra full size mattresses stored under the beds and a 40 inch LED TV.

The top floor features vaulted ceilings, breathtaking decorations, a two seat bistro table, and a fresh, contemporary kitchen with a large 3-seat bar, separate wine and beer fridge, dining room table for 6, couches (one pullout Queen sleeper), arm chairs, reading area, games, 55 inch Smart LED HD TV and water views, views, views!

Sorry, NO PETS ALLOWED.

We also have an additional property should have need more room than just this house! Please see listing number 601083!

About the Area: There are several highly-rated golf courses within minutes from the house, off-shore and in-shore fishing charters less than a mile away, both gourmet and family style restaurants, mini-golf, shopping, party boats, grocery stores, churches, and so much more all immediately accessible. Wilmington is 30 minutes to the South with great attractions like the USS North Carolina Battleship, Aquarium, Serpentarium, great shopping, tours, etc!

Why Daniel and Alana chose Topsail Beach

You will not be disappointed! At least four locals have told us they have never seen a better view on the island. It's hard to beat the sunset off the back deck and the panoramic views to the northwest and south! This house is so serene and fresh with a lot of extras to offer!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had the most incredible stay at "How Sweet the Sound!" We've stayed at several houses on Topsail Island, and nothing compares to this house! It is so gorgeous on the inside, and stunning on the outside! From the breath-taking views, dolphin jumping right by the house, pool, boat docks, hot tub, elevator in the house, fishing and crabbing from the house, or gorgeous beach, you can't beat it! We made amazing family memories and can't wait to come back!

Summer at the Beach

  • 5 of 5

If you want to have a summer at the beach experience, this is the place for you! It was the perfect place for us to relax and enjoy the beautiful views. The sunsets were stunning from the back deck right over the water. The beach is the perfect place for children of all ages. We had a 2 yr old and 13 yr and everywhere between and they all loved it! The pool was a great place to relax and unwind as well. The house had everything we needed and the kids loved that they could watch Netflix! The layout is very family friendly- open and we could all be doing different things but be together in the living space. We had a blast and this was the perfect home for our group- 4 adults and 4 kids.

Amazing Views from this Beautiful Topsail home

  • 5 of 5

We had the chance to stay at this beautiful home on Topsail Island. The views of the sound were spectacular and the sunsets indescribable. You can't get any closer to the sound without being in it then this home. It has a wonderful upper level open concept living area with three very comfortable bedrooms. The deck and the view from the deck are what steals the show though. My family and I look forward to going back and staying there again. The owners Daniel and Alana were very easy to work with as well.

Very clean, organized and loved the views from the deck

  • 5 of 5

This rental worked great for us as we were looking for a restful weekend. We found the house to be very clean and organized, the inside elevator was a big help when you are unloading and loading. It was also nice to be off the main drag so traffic was not an issue even though we visited off-season I can see the benefits during the peak. The view of the Waterway was good as we enjoyed seeing sunsets over the water. The Ocean and beaches were just a few minutes away across the street so all in all it was a good experience and will probably try to return in the warmer months.
