Gorgeous custom sound home on Hewletts Creek located on lots 10 and 11 of the Carr Estate comprised of about 7 acres of land. The peninsula has panoramic views of the creek, Intracoastal Waterway, Masonboro Island and the Atlantic Ocean in the distance! Home was built in 1996 for the present owners by Telesis Ventures and designed by renowned architect Ligon Flynn. Property includes main residence with 4 bedrooms, large covered porches, newly updated kitchen, 2 car carport, detached 4 car garage and horse stables with fenced pasture. There is also a fixed private pier on the creek with a floating dock. The driveway has an electric gate for secured access, and the property has lots of privacy. Included are 2 20KW propane generators in case of power loss. This property was part of a 70 acre tract of land at the mouth of Hewletts Creek owned by James Osborn Carr that was his summer home until his death in 1949. The property, known as Grainger’s Point, was subdivided and sold after Carr’s death, and has some of the most scenic vistas of any property in New Hanover County. Masonboro Sound was an area of New Hanover County where people would go for the summer to get away from the heat and enjoy the ocean breezes. There they could enjoy coastal activities like fishing, boating, and family gathering. Homes were first built in the area in the 18th and 19th centuries. William Hooper had a summer home on Masonboro sound; he was one of three signers of the Declaration of Independence from N.C. Another home called Live Oaks was built in 1912 for Walter Parsley as a permanent residence; it was designed by Henry Bacon, who was the architect for the Lincoln Memorial.
