ON A MODERN HOME ON FIGURE EIGHT ISLAND
521 Beach Road North, Figure Eight Island
This is a modern style home, but its story actually starts two centuries ago. In 1877 a lumber ship was lost at sea. It wasn’t found until 2015, on the very grounds that this house now stands. The wreckage served as inspiration for this home in Wilmington’s most exclusive neighborhood. The architect calls this style “Yacht Modern.” The house is built with mahogany wood, stainless steel, aluminum and impact resistant glass and has a boat theme throughout. It has four bedrooms, four full baths and two half baths in just over 4,000 square feet. In all, there are four levels each connected by floating stairs . Our favorite part is the roof top swimming pool which provides 360 degree views of Figure Eight Island. Asking price $4,850,000
