Home Details for 7903 Masonboro Sound Rd

Sprawling and private waterfront estate in the historic Masonboro Sound area offers an exquisite blend of raw natural beauty and refined elegance. The 7.8 acre property overlooks the Intracoastal Waterway, Masonboro Island and the Atlantic Ocean in the distance. Ancient live oaks, pine groves, and marshes-home to egrets, osprey, ibises- are balanced by the formal boxwood garden, stately swimming pool, paisley Camellia garden and putting green. Anchoring the property is the spacious 6800 square foot main house which was designed by architect Michael Kersting and built by Lee Cowper for t...he current owner in 2000. Spacious, high-style, and meticulously detailed, the 5 bedroom, 5.5 bath brick house is a marriage of modern luxury and classic design. Central to the stunning composition of the home is the three story octagonal gallery which is open from the main floor to the third floor cupola. It is an architectural detail that functions beautifully as counterpoint to the perfect order of the home's symmetrical layout. In addition to the formal living and dining rooms, the main level of the home includes multiple gallery spaces with custom lighting to showcase artwork, a conservatory area, and an aristocratic study clad in reclaimed wormy chestnut wood. With both function and fashion in mind, the chef's kitchen is equipped with a Viking gas range, warming drawer; SubZero refrigerator; Thermador oven, and Fisher Paykel dish drawers. The kitchen is open to the Carolina gathering room which features a fireplace and wet bar. Both the living room and Carolina room open onto the deep verandah- an ideal space for outdoor entertaining. Some other features of the main level include 12' ceilings, hardwood floors with inlaid borders, exquisite woodwork, cabinetry, wood paneling, 3 fireplaces, custom lighting and fixtures, and recessed speakers all connected to a central sound system. In contrast to the first floor, the second floor is a more private space. The twin master suites both have fireplaces and open onto the verandah that provides exceptional views of the Masonboro Sound and the Atlantic Ocean. In addition, there is more gallery space, a third bedroom and an office which could function as a playroom or bedroom. All rooms on the second floor have large private baths, 10' ceilings, custom woodwork and 100% wool carpeting. The third floor is a unique gallery space with a spiraling staircase that leads to the cupola and its breathtaking 360 degree views. On the ground floor, a large cozy den with exposed beams and fireplace is anchored by an antique pub bar which turns the space into a true "Rathskeller". There is also private guest room which features a fireplace and ensuite bath. A patio runs the length of the house on this level for additional outdoor space. The laundry room serves dual purpose as a secondary prep kitchen. It is adjacent to the elevator, which serves three floors, for convenience. The climate controlled three-car garage and additional wor
