Property Detail

Address:710 Shoals Watch Way
BR / BA / HBA:5/5/1
Square Footage:5514
Subdivision:Cape Fear Station

Castello della Balena was built with both namesakes in mind - the castle inspiration born out of whimsical features, and the whale metaphor shown distinctly in the architecture. The custom-designed arches that span the upstairs living area and master suite are reminiscent of the ribcage of a whale. Inside the home, it's nearly impossible to find a single detail that wasn't custom-designed and crafted. From the cabinets and furniture, to the wrought iron hinges and hidden door, this is truly a one-of-a-kind home. The downstairs guests suites are named, from front to back, the Baleen Suite, Jonah's Suite, and ending with the Tail Suite. With 260 degree views  of the point of Cape Fear, the home occupies one of the most storied settings on the entire East Coast - actually two settings, as the house straddles a pair of spectacular home sites. After all, setting is key to any happily ever after tale!
