Atlantic Beach is a unique locale in more ways than its sought-after location on the shoreline. It has the advantage of being an incredible resort-like destination while retaining the sweet southern hospitality and warmth one would expect in this small town. As part of the Bogue Banks, this community — and barrier island — is dotted with quiet, unspoiled beaches, low-slung buildings with charming shops and cool cafes, and an all-around easygoing vibe.

Island Quay is over the causeway and to the left, a quieter spot on the island and close to Fort Macon State Park. This community is a welcoming coastal enclave of mostly three-story beach homes in delicate-colored hues that coordinate with the pale pinks and yellows of the sunrise.

Walking inside this home and up the stairs to the main living area feels like a breath of fresh air. This spot is a seaside haven with white walls, wood floors and a sunlit interior. The sleek contemporary design and decor are a delight, the style to die for, yet it doesn't take away from the main attraction— the view outdoors. From this vantage point, there is an opportunity to take in the splendor of nature with a panoramic view of marsh, sea and sky from windows, decks and porches. Right here is the perfect place to gaze out over the water and marvel at the striking sunsets that illuminate the cloudscape like fireworks. The wildlife that thrives here is abundant and varied — this spot is home to countless birds like eagles, osprey and ibises and animals like rabbits, deer and otters that are a thrill to observe.

This home has been planned out thoughtfully, with beautiful touches throughout. From the fireplace surround in soft colors echoed in the quartz of the contemporary kitchen's countertops and the sea glass green tiled backsplash, the complementary textures and tones are as pleasing to the eye as the updates are practical.

The main space boasts soaring ceilings and sunshine and is where you will spot the Juliet balcony overhead on the third floor. That upper level is where you feel pampered in the primary bedroom with cathedral ceilings and incredible, sweeping views of the sound in the distance and the marsh grasses below. Luxuriate in the ensuite bath, an expansive and soothing space where your feet will rest on a floor of multi-colored stones in shades of green. There's a jetted tub for soaking and a walk-in shower, too. The additional bedroom and bath are equally inviting and plush, maintaining the all-around appeal of the design and atmosphere you will find here at this address.

Celebrate the good life at this exceptional home in Island Quay, where you will never be alone. The community is rich in connection; the land is abundant with the joys of nature—owls hooting, shooting stars, and the patter of rain on your pier. And mostly, friends and family will be drawn to sit, talk, and love being at "the beach" and at 107 Island Quay.
