As this home was chosen for the filming location of the popular TV show “One Tree Hill” during the 2009 through 2011 season series, it will certainly be an exciting destination for those of you that followed and enjoyed this popular TV show. Sitting majestically along three direct oceanfront lots, each meticulously landscaped and manicured with palm trees and lush tropical foliage surrounding a heated oceanfront pool, covered gazebo, arbor and trellis covered pathway, all enclosed within a 6 foot high privacy fence. This home nestled along an expansive 237 feet of ocean frontage will certainly provide the ultimate beach vacation that you will not soon forget. This home has 4 large bedrooms with 3.5 baths with additional sleeping quarters in the upper level balcony loft area. It is equipped with 2 kings, 1 queen, 2 sets of bunks, 1 pyramid, 1 daybed with trundle and 2 queen sleeper sofas. It is set up to sleep 19 comfortably. This home provides major amenities which include: a private heated swimming pool, covered poolside gazebo, enclosed outdoor shower with hot and cold water, beach observation deck on sand dune, boat dock, elevator, Wifi, flat screen TV’s, surround sound, lots of covered porches and decks and last but certainly not least, expansive water views from every window in the house. The views are simply amazing and on a clear sunny day you can see as far down the beach as to the Surf City fishing pier which is 10 miles south. This is all due to the precise positioning of this home as it sits directly in the center of 3 oceanfront lots (237 feet of ocean frontage) with absolutely no view obstructions on either side. It would be very difficult to find a home anywhere with equal expansive ocean views. From the ground level of this home you will enter the house through a door that will take you into a foyer. Adjacent to this foyer area is a small open room (similar to a mud room) with benches and wall mounted bathing suit hooks which makes a convenient spot for changing into dry clothes after showering outside and coming in from a long day at the beach. From this room you can also take the elevator and be swiftly transported back up to the floor level of your choice. Or you can also take the stairs if you prefer. As you enter this luxurious oceanfront home on the first living level by way of the outside staircase, you will find three large bedrooms, two bathrooms, a walk-in laundry room with full size washer and dryer and a 1st floor living room. There is also direct access to the elevator from this level. Bedroom 1 on this level serves as a master suite and has northern exposure oceanfront views and is equipped with a king bed, end tables, dresser, chair and a ceiling fan. This room provides direct access out to the covered oceanfront porch through glass slider doors. This covered porch area will also provide access down to the pool and out to the beach. The views from this room are magnificent. The master bath is equipped with a jetted tub, walk-in shower, double vanities and a spacious closet. Bedroom 2 on this first living level has southern exposure ocean views and is equipped with a queen bed, end tables, dresser, chair, closet and ceiling fan. This room also provides direct access out to the covered oceanfront porch through glass slider doors. This covered porch area will also provide access down to the pool and out to the beach. The views from this room are magnificent as well. Adjacent to the entrance door of this bedroom you will find a full bath with tub and shower combination as well as double vanities. Bedroom 3 on this first living level is located on the sound side of the home and is equipped with two sets of built-in bunks which will be a great place for the kids to hang out. This room provides direct access out to the front sound side porch and down to the enclosed yard area. From this room you will have great views of the Sound and Intracoastal Waterway. Just outside the bedroom door is the full bath that will be shared with bedroom 2. This level also has a very convenient living room which is on the ocean side of the home and provides direct access out to the covered oceanfront porch through glass slider doors. This covered porch area will also provide access down to the pool and out to the beach. This room is equipped with a large queen sleeper sectional sofa, ceiling fan and a large flat screen TV with DVD. This is another ideal area for the kids or even the adults to hang out and watch their favorite movies on the large flat screen TV. As you travel up to the next living level, either by elevator or by stairs you will first approach the large family room which is on the ocean side of the home. This level provides an open floor plan living area in which the dining, kitchen and family room are all open and adjoining which makes for greatMore
