Tyson Emery, Broker/Realtor, shares what he loves about the property at 21 Henderson Street W, in Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina.
Which room do you love most?
This property has lots to offer, but I'm especially impressed by the outdoor living spaces. The huge 2nd floor front patio is a great place to drop your beach gear, grab a cold beverage, and sit back to take in all that Wrightsville Beach has to offer. This is also a super buffer for sand and wet suits, keeping the outdoors from tracking into the front room. You can dress up this wide patio, or leave it totally casual. I'd add a table and chairs for outdoor dining - your grill is just down the stairs.
What is unique about this property?
Possibilities! Right now, the home is two units, with an apartment downstairs, and another upstairs. You could customize one unit for yourself, and the other for either long- or short-term rental, which means income. It could be converted to a single family home, which would give you 2472 square feet of living space. There is also the option - with city approval of course - to build up and turn this property into your dream beach escape.
What's not to miss?
Walk the neighborhood - that's what makes Wrightsville Beach one of the most desirable beachfront communities in southeastern coastal North Carolina. This property is just a half block from the Intracoastal Waterway, and there is a newly re-built kayak drop right there. You can also walk a short ways along the sandy shore of the IC. In the other direction, you walk up 1-1/2 blocks to the beach access and the gorgeous Atlantic ocean. In the winter, you can walk your dog on the beach; in the summer, you don't have to worry with parking... you have the best of beach front living. This property has plenty of parking in the wide driveway in front, so your guests and friends can come for a day on the beach and not worry about meters or parking restrictions - but be warned they won't want to leave.
This home is also right off of Lumina Avenue, which is lined with fun local joints for drinks, entertainment, and really good food. For your daily exercise, join your Wrightsville Beach neighbors and walk "The Loop."
What is the neighborhood's personality? Is there anything special about living in this area?
Wrightsville Beach is a cool combination of year-round locals and seasonal visitors. The properties are a mix of spectacular beach front homes and long-term rentals, and the city has maintained the relaxed, beach town vibe that makes it one of the hottest destination cities on North Carolina's Atlantic coast. As a destination, parking and traffic can get busy during "season," which is why living on the island gives you the luxury of accessing the beaches and entertainment by foot or bike. With an outdoor shower and private fire pit, this home is your beach getaway, with all the conveniences of being steps from the water.
The listing at 21 Henderson Street W, Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina, is a two-unit home that makes an ideal beach retreat for your family or a great investment opportunity, with 5 bedrooms total: 3 downstairs and 2 upstairs.
This property has lots of extras as is, including a bonus room on the second floor that is flex space perfect for a 6th bedroom, home office or recreational/hobby area. The wood-burning stone fireplace in the second floor living room creates a cozy space for year-round beach living. You can enjoy the island life from the covered front porch, expansive side deck or fire pit area. There is ample parking, as well as spacious living and dining areas to provide plenty of room to gather with family and entertain friends, or to live in one unit comfortably while renting the other. What we see here are endless possibilities.
