Address: 430 North Anderson Blvd., Topsail Beach

Price: $2,997,000

Description: Beach living doesn’t get more spectacular than this 4,832 square-foot stunner on Banks Channel in Topsail Beach. Sure, it has a hefty price tag but look what it’s dangling off of. To get to this secluded, five-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom mansion, you must first head down a private driveway cutting through a maritime forest and opening up to this monster of a property. Built with stacked stone accents, the foyer offers an elevator up to main living level. There, the homeowner can mill about a number of rooms that lets in plenty sunlight, a gourmet kitchen, a living area with fireplace, a formal dining room overlooking the property and bedrooms fit for royalty. The master includes a steam shower and Whirlpool tub. Downstairs is an outfitted separate living area with a kitchen, bedroom and patio, as well as extensive office space. Perhaps the biggest selling point is the outdoors where you'll find a large waterside dining area and long pier offering the best places to soak in one of the best views in the region.
