Property Description

Welcome to one of the most sought after communities along the East Coast! This premier Intracoastal Waterway front community is nestled in the heart of Wilmington, NC. As you make your way into the private-gated community of TidalWalk, you will be greeted with gas lanterns, a shell encrusted entryway and the sounds of the flowing fountain which anchors the pond at TidalWalk. As you drive into your new neighborhood and follow the treelined streets, you will arrive at one of the most coveted homesites in the entire community. We present to you 1216 Porches Drive, located on over .60 of an acre and surrounded by mature trees. As you enter your new coastal home, you will be welcomed by your grand foyer. The sprawling first floor includes a formal dining room, gourmet kitchen, open living room with high ceilings, a spacious area that can be used for a sitting area or breakfast nook and for your convenience, the laundry room can also be found on the first floor. Your large primary suite completes the main level. This primary retreat is all that you have dreamed of! With its bright and airy feel, expansive views of the private woods, and massive primary bath with large soaking tub and walk-in closet, you will immediately know that this is your sanctuary! After a wonderful night's rest, make your way into the living room and ignite your cozy gas fireplace which is framed in the elegance of custom drapery and enjoy a cup of coffee while watching the deer play off in the distance. All of the well thought out luxury appointments; such as, granite countertops, custom window treatments, hand-selected custom lighting, new carpeting, wainscoting and crown molding will give you that wow factor that has been missing in your search. Need extra space? Travel up your new staircase showcasing wrought-iron detailing to your spacious upstairs featuring an additional four bedrooms. The fourth bedroom could serve as an in-law suite, media room, gym, playroom or as an extra-large office. The upstairs is complete with a loft area that is a perfect space for your guests, or you may choose to make this your music or reading nook! If the fresh air is calling your name, head out to your large screened-in backporch and listen for the waves that are crashing in the distance. Experience all nature has to offer from the custom stone patio with built-in seating overlooking your very own private backyard oasis. It is the perfect place to relax by your toasty fire, breathe in the ocean air and enjoy an oyster roast in these cooler North Carolina months. Do you need lots of storage space? This home has all of your storage needs covered with multiple walk in attic spaces and shelves galore in the garage to make even those most organized friends of yours envious! Your massive and open space outside of your home will be the perfect park setting to make wonderful memories with friends, family and neighbors! Go spend the day with your loved ones kayaking or boating in the ICW, soaking up the sun in your neighborhood's beach entry pool, or getting in some exercise at TidalWalk's full state-of-the-art fitness center. Head down to the community's private beach, put your toes in the sand, or watch the boats pass by from the gazebo. In the evenings, you can spend time with your neighbors that will soon feel like family at the beautiful TidalWalk Resident's Club for a Cornhole Tournament, game of Bunco, Poker night or even an outdoor movie or concert! You will immediately be reminded that this is what you have worked so hard for in your life! Hurry! Reward yourself and you can live where every day feels like a vacation!
