7509 Masonboro Sound Rd, Wilmington

Spectacular views of Masonboro Island, the ocean, & ICWW. This waterfrontmansion is situated on a bluff on 3 acres, & is a masterpiece of design & craftmanship. The 3 story marble foyer welcomes you into sophisticated living spaces designed for luxury living & entertaining with ease. 10,800 sqft, featuring 5 bedrooms, 8 baths, formal dining, & a tremendous chef's kitchen characterized by a centralized island w/dual gas & electric cooktops, exhaust hood, granite countertops, professional appliances, & generous custom made birch cabinets. A divine ensuite master w/tub, shower, bidet, & an extensive master closet! Exquisite Chandeliers. Marble throughout. Elevator. 5 garage spaces. 3 floors of covered porches facing the water. Home constructed of concrete & steel. Beautiful Inside! Commensurate with all so far described, the construction of this domicile is equally impressive. Be not deceived by the beauty of the exterior and interior surfaces visible, for the substructure of this home could have equally served as a fortress. Everything about this residence is first class, including the engineers and architects. Taking two years to construct, the house is made of concrete, metal and glass, sitting on 54 Auger piles which reach 50 ft into the ground. Drainage blanket and drains under the entire house. All marble bathrooms, floors and walls. Massive reverse air flow fans and thermostats under the metal roof which is reinforced to withstand hurricane force winds. Commercial grade windows, doors and electrical system. The 70 kilowatt generator kicks in as soon as the electricity is interrupted. Two deep wells and on-site septic system. Lovely elevated marble garden in the circle of the massive driveway, lined with the trees and seasonal flowering shrubs. The entry and foyer are warmly welcoming with the Italian travertine marble, the atrium with the stunning chandelier. The living, dining, music and entertaining areas are of the most striking design. Throughout the house, marble abounds (and is the same Italian marble that adorns the palace of Japan's emperor). The home is entirely wired for sound with 3 independent audio systems. The kitchen, oh the kitchen...fully equipped with a serving-area central island that comfortably seats 8, featuring a dual gas and electric cooking range. Other features include double ovens, 2 pantries, 2 sinks, 2 refrigerators, 2 dishwashers, breakfast nook, and beautiful birch, custom cabinetry with granite countertops. The 7 foot wet bar has 6 bar stools, and separates the kitchen and grand dining room, which comfortably seats 24. All areas are surrounded with views of the water and the beautiful live oaks and scenery from the many windows. Downstairs at the bottom of the landing, is a theatre room, fitness center, a bedroom, bonus room wired and plumbed for an additional kitchen in the future, the laundry room, his and her bathrooms, an additional room for storage or a wine cellar, and a sizable, heated and cooled double garage, with plenty of storage for kayaks, paddle boards, and fishing equipment. Also included is a detached 3 car garage. The interior marble staircases are magnificent. The master bedroom suite is enormous and the master closet is even more so, connecting with the elegant master bath with seamless shower doors, marble floors and walls, bidet, and jetted garden tub. Beautifully decorated. Three other bedrooms on this floor and two atriums that are open to the living areas below surrounded by a loft area leading to the 3rd floor porch. The 4 story elevator leads to the 4th floor which is a totally, floored attic. Laundry chutes on every floor. Garbage chute. So much more! Let's just say the mansion is located upon one of the most beautiful locales along southeastern North Carolina's Intracoastal Waterway, and the landscaping is on equal par with the location and the residence. What a wonderful place to be living. Living Seaside!
