Gulf View 30A Home Bordering Topsail Hill Preserve State Park
Posted by Destin Real Estate Sales on Thursday, December 8th, 2022 at 7:35am.
This stately Mediterranean-styled home encompasses 5,141 square feet of opulent space with an outstanding location off Scenic 30A at 114 Loon Lake Dr near Dune Allen Beach. The regal five-bedroom home stands three stories tall, with a private elevator providing easy access to the upper two levels. It has been recently renovated and comes completely furnished with beautiful appointments. Upper-level verandas and balconies feature stunning views of the sensational seascape, including the long ribbon of white beach, the glittering gulf, an exotic coastal dune lake, and over 1,600 acres of protected forests.
The unique locale provides unobstructed westerly views toward Topsail Hill Preserve State Park. You may enjoy experiencing spectacular sunsets over the gorgeous landscape, especially from October thru early March when the golden orb descends directly into the gulf. Sometimes deer may be seen at twilight grazing on golden sea oats upon the dunes in this heavenly setting. Sunbathing at the beach or swimming in the gorgeous gulf is just one of many things to experience at Topsail. Two large forested lakes called Morris and Campbell, along with nearby Stallworth Lake, are precious natural treasures. Coastal dune lakes are found hardly anywhere else in the entire world. Creek-like estuaries meander across the sugary dunes from these artisan spring-fed lakes into the open gulf, and tidal action creates a magical mixture of salted water. These lakes support a thriving habitat for wildlife, a wide variety of fish, and lots of waterfowl.
A 2.5-mile trail borders Morris Lake and a 5-mile trail meanders around Campbell so that you may catch Bass, Bream, Pan Fish, and Catfish. This old-growth forest is filled with Loblolly Pine Trees, Palmettos, Scrub Oaks, and Magnolias. They almost look primeval in this ancient forested surrounding. Over three miles of secluded beach is lined by towering, sugary white dunes that border the upper forest. Besides luxuriating in the jewel-toned gulf, you may also try catching Pompano, Red Fish, Spanish, or King Mackerel. An open trail leads down to Stallworth Lake, where you may go paddle boarding, kayaking, or canoeing to the beautiful beach. The public beach access to Stalworth Lake at the eastern edge of Topsail is less than a handful of minutes away by car.
A paver stone drive leads into the lush, tropically landscaped grounds of this palatial manor, circling around a royal palm tree in front of a staircase that graciously ascends to the front door. A garage flanks each side, and soaring white columns frame the entrance crowned by an arched palladium window that towers two stories tall.
The main open living, dining, and kitchen area are on the second level. This spacious great room is highlighted by walls of floor-to-ceiling windows along with glass doors, twelve-foot tall ceilings, and new light-colored luxury vinyl plank flooring. The glass doors access the second-level balcony featuring sweeping panoramic views of the superb scenery and the swimming pool below. The living room features a plush latte-toned wraparound couch, a matching armchair, and two chic geometrically patterned accent chairs. They have views of the amazing seascape, and a large flatscreen TV mounted above a light hardwood cabinet with a coral display. Upscale decorative art includes paintings of herons, seascapes, tropical plants, stylish mirrors, and marine life sculptures.
A square beach-washed hardwood dining table with eight chairs, a counter bar, and a gas grill provides a setting for outdoor wining and dining while experiencing the vivid views.
Back inside, the dining area has a gray rustic hardwood table with eight high-backed safari cloth draped chairs beneath a unique suspended tubular light fixture.
Nearby, the open gourmet kitchen has been remodeled to offer state-of-the-art commercial-grade appliances. It features a six-burner hooded gas range with a double oven, a drawer microwave, white quartz countertops, a French Thermador refrigerator freezer, a glass-front wine cooler, a dishwasher, and an oversized kitchen island with seating for six. A white Carrera marble-type backsplash strikingly accents streaked ash-colored contemporary custom cabinetry and open shelving.
A bright open staircase above the entry foyer continues past the large palladium window to the third floor, which features its own granite counter wet bar, mini-refrigerator, microwave oven, coffee maker, and a built-in wine rack and cabinetry. A bedroom off this landing currently serves as an office with a computer desk and cabinet.
The primary bedroom and another spacious living area are on the top floor. The primary bedroom has a private balcony to enjoy romantic sunsets, a hanging cushioned porch swing, and two stylish chairs with a cocktail table. A soaring tray ceiling and two glass doors provide abundant light and stunning views, while a majestic white cottage-style king-size bed sits beside it.
The ensuite luxury bath features two gray granite-topped vanity cabinets with sinks and stylish mirror lighting. A partially glass-walled area has a rainfall shower head on one side and a deep curve-ended soaking tub beside an arched window providing outdoor views.
A bonus living area has two wide walls of cornered glass doors leading out to an observation balcony with seating that provides southwesterly views of the lake, gulf, and forested sand dunes. This handsomely furnished space includes two large cushioned black wicker chairs facing directly out to enjoy the magnificent views. A cushioned black wicker-framed couch beneath a wide mirror sits beside a regal ebony black cocktail table. It faces a large wall-mounted flatscreen TV above a long rectangular glass-front gas fireplace.
The sunny guest bedrooms are comfortably furnished with upscale cottage-style furnishings. One has a king-size bed and a sitting area with a creamy white wraparound couch, and the other has a charming full-size bed flanked by sunny windows. Another guest quarter serves as a bunk room with a full and twin bed.
Two of the guest bedrooms feature richly appointed ensuite luxury baths with double vanity sinks and walk-in showers. The Bunk Room has access to a full hall bath with a tub shower combination, while another half bath serves as a powder room.
A columned veranda overlooks a private brick patio, the pool, and a cornered hot tub that cascades down into the water beside it. This covered veranda has a comfortably furnished living area on one side, situated around a cocktail table with a gas fire pit in its center. A rustic dining table, a counter with seating, a full outdoor kitchen, and a wet bar on the other side provide the perfect poolside entertainment space.
