AUCTION: 11/30/2017. PREVIOUSLY LISTED FOR $4.5M. SELLING WITHOUT RESERVE. This 2+ acre oceanfront estate is exquisitely appointed and designed in the style of grand beach manors of a bygone era. "Champagne Chateau" sits serenely behind a wide dune overlooking the Atlantic Ocean on the east side and has views of the Currituck Sound to the west. A former Du Pont Residence, the estate was built as a three-generation family beach home - for any time of the year - with several wings and central gathering areas to accommodate family groups. This one-of-a-kind haven consists of 5 lots (3 oceanfront and 2 semi's), beautifully landscaped with coastal plants and seasonal blooms. The home was designed by a notable North Carolina architect who integrated Northern Shingle style with elements of NC historic plantation homes by presenting a dramatic stair tower from the west side and double porches on the east, a detail brought to the Carolinas by planters from the West Indies. It adjoins the Audubon Sanctuary and isn't far from the many amenities of the Sanderling and Duck. The salon-style upper-level living area opens onto covered decks facing the ocean and westward to decks with views of the sound. The formal living room is a large area full of light with ocean views to the east and sound views to the west. Picture windows are the centerpiece of each of the four sitting bays on either side of the doors. The high tray ceiling is of clear Carolina cedar and the windows, doors and baseboards are clear cypress with wide heart pine floors. Enjoy ocean views from the master suite or cooking in the large kitchen with several work stations. A picture-window bay on the east brings in the light and ocean vista. On the west, an oversized glass door opens to a balcony overlooking the garden and Currituck sound. All bedrooms are spacious and comfortable with well-appointed bathrooms. Separate wings provide private, peaceful space for all. The separate Carriage house offers 2 master bedrooms with baths, galley kitchen, living area, and private laundry area. With over 7,000 square feet of heated living area and over 4,000 square feet of screen porches and decks, you will experience and enjoy living in the preserved natural habitat of this Atlantic Ocean to Currituck Sound community! Recent updates/upgrades include new windows, decks, screen porch, bathroom renovations, sauna, lighting in some areas, doors, walkways, fireplace, granite countertops, tile, some appliances, exterior and interior paint, security system, HVAC, TV's, furniture, artwork, rugs, bedding, plantation shutters, landscaping, and more!
