Classic Wrightsville Beach bungalow located on Charlotte Street with exceptional access to the beach as well as Wrightsville's eateries and city center. Just two homes from the beach, the location affords ocean vistas from the broad wrap-around porch, while WB's top eateries, bars, and grocery store are just two blocks away The best thing about Charlotte Street is that, although it's extremely close and convenient to everything, it's also just far enough away to keep things peaceful at nighttime. Of course, it's also well-acclaimed to offer Wrightsville Beach's best surfing right out in front of the Station 24 access, just steps from the front porch.
The home was constructed in 1940 and retains virtually all of it's original classic, rustic appeal, yet offers centralized AC, refreshed appliances in the kitchen, and a full size washer/dryer in the downstairs laundry room. There are four (4) bedrooms which include a downstairs 'master' with a king-size bed, and three bedrooms upstairs that feature two (2) queen size beds and one room with two (2) twin size beds that can be pulled together to make a king. There is one (1) bathroom downstairs which serves the master bedroom as well as downstairs home guests and a 2nd bathroom upstairs to serve the upstairs three bedrooms.
Of course, our guests typically spend most of their time outside on the expansive wrap-around porch which features multiple seating areas including a daybed and hammock. The Denon stereo receiver is connected to two outdoor speakers on the porch if you like to savor a few tunes while chillin' with friends. There is also a grassy, landscaped area in the backyard that is great for calming as well. We have a gas grille stored underneath the home that can be used for cookouts, and there is also a huge outdoor shower underneath to rinse off the kids when you come in from the beach. There is also plenty of parking on site, as well as access to street parking on Charlotte Street.
Now for a few intangibles about the home: Our family lives in the area and we rent the home less than we use it for ourselves. We appreciate it! Out friends adore it! That said, please understand that it is a 1940 beach bungalow that oozes with rustic period charm, and if you are looking for something newer with bigger bedrooms and bathrooms, you would be advised to look elsewhere. But if you are looking for the quintessential old-school Wrightsville Beach experience, you cannot find a more ideal spot!
