Located barely 40 minutes from the Outer Banks, tucked away off the beaten path, you’ll find Inner Banks living at it’s finest. This award-winning custom home sits 1500 feet off the highway on over 14 acres of cypress lined Scuppernong River frontage. The property is historically known as Mott Ridge and the home was originally part of the Vineyards on the Scuppernong, and it was designed and constructed as a showplace. To the trained eye it will be apparent before you ever step foot through the door the amazing amount of detail and expense that has been put into this home.
You’ll be astonished at the 1130 square feet of covered porches, all of which have Brazilian Cherry decking. The open portion that wraps around the southern section of the house has 6 feet of roof overhang providing ample protection from the elements and PVC railings and posts for minimal maintenance. A large stone outdoor fireplace will provide warmth while enjoying winter sunsets over the vineyard. The 12.5’x19’ screened portion can be accessed just off the kitchen as well as from the master bedroom.
Here you’ll find a stone grill, counter and sink as well as a built-in hot tub. It’s obvious the owner intended to experience as much of the outdoor world as possible when designing the home with 9 doors (3 singles and 3 doubles) and 40 windows…Unbelievable! A large welcoming foyer leads to a stunning great room and kitchen combination with 20’ ceilings. Black marble fireplace and hearth with custom mantle, cabinets and bookcases in the great room.
The kitchen is the centerpiece of the home highlighted by exquisite custom cabinetry, granite countertops throughout, a large sink and stainless appliances, electric oven and gas cooktop. The large dining room on the west side of the kitchen overlooks the vineyard and is perfect for entertaining or family holiday gatherings. The TV room on the east side of the kitchen has a stone wood burning fireplace, pocket doors that can close it off for privacy and an amazing view of the Scuppernong River. Incredible master bedroom and bathroom design.
The large bedroom overlooks the river and has access to the screened porch. The bathroom has his and her walk-in closets and an impressive glass block walk-in shower. For empty nesters, the second bedroom is the perfect office complete with it’s own bathroom and a view of the vineyard. The remaining space in the home is a half bath, a laundry room, a lockable gun room and a storage closet.
Except for ceramic tile in two of the bathrooms, the flooring in the entire house is gorgeous heart pine. Back outside, a large, incredibly well-maintained plant bed completely surrounds the house and contains trees, flowers and flowering shrubs providing a beautiful array of blooms and colors which can be seen from every room in the house. The detached 2 car garage / workshop is built with the same architectural design as the house. Interior steps lead over the garage to a space that could easily be finished and used as guest quarters or an office or a playroom.
The wall has been pushed out in one of the bays to be able to accommodate a 23 foot boat on a trailer. Stone walkways lead from the pea gravel parking area to the front porch and from the back porch to the bulkheaded boat basin with a custom-built architectural bridge connecting the walkway to the pier. The boat basin has power and water available. Access the river from the pier or from the boat basin and experience year-round fishing and watersports opportunities.
From bald eagles on the river to songbirds in the flower beds to critters snacking in the vineyard, you’ll enjoy nature in one of the rarest settings I’ve ever seen in eastern North Carolina. Oh yeah, the sunrises! Shown by appointment only to qualified buyers.
