Living here in North Carolina, the vibe and spirit can vary dramatically from one address to the next, from mountains to coast, from small towns to big cities. But one thing remains constant… the possibilities are endless. A day at the beach searching for seashells can be enjoyed a stone’s throw from a day shopping in town, hiking the trails, or fishing off-shore with the family. This area is chameleon- like and malleable, suiting the needs of the many: the old, the young, the active and the quiet. The property at Wildwood River Ridge is a secret hideaway of sorts, this neighborhood is small, with only a few custom built homes. 228 Munden Farm boasts 13 glorious acres of privacy and is only a few minutes from downtown Morehead City.
Arriving at this spot feels like a grand entrance to a different time and place, or a lucky happenstance onto a movie set. The sweeping drive and fountain set the tone upon arrival, and the stunning, classic colonial home with a modern edge amazes. This peaceful, idyllic setting feels like another world of wide-angle views, of green fields, blue sky and roaming horses.
Step inside to wood floors and a wide and welcoming foyer warm with natural light that sets the tone for the sophisticated and classic feel of this southern home. It embraces time-honored elements in design and function. Sit-down family meals are a tradition in the formal dining room, as are quiet talks and time together in the sunroom off the back. This spot overlooks the marsh and the Newport River where deer roam and fireflies light up the night sky. Eagles, turtles and ospreys round out the bounty of nature to admire from this secluded spot. The open kitchen is incredible with granite counters, top of the line stainless appliances and space for entertaining.
The upstairs has many thoughtful features, too, a second master bedroom with cedar walk-in closet, guest bedrooms with full baths, so much storage space, and separate plumbing for an extra washer and dryer.
If this property were in fact a movie set, the film might be Black Beauty or Flicka. It’s the perfect place to capture the adventurous spirit and the essence of connecting with nature that the land provides. The 3 stall horse stable is a beauty, built so the horses could wander out to pasture and come back to the barn. Complete with a hayloft and tack room, your quest to connect with the outdoors is waiting to begin.
At this scenic setting, you have privacy and peace, beauty and the serenity of nature at your doorstep with a gorgeous and traditional house to call your home.
