The Southern Living 2017 Idea Home
204 Whale Head Way
Southern Living Magazine builds an Idea Home in a new location every year. In 2017 they selected Bald Head Island and designed and built a home that embodies the natural environment of the island. This home is no longer available for tours through Southern Living and this will be your final opportunity to tour the home and see the level of craftsmanship put into this stunning home.
5 Widgeon Court
This newly renovated home features a stunning modern design accompanied by serene views of the island's tidal creek and salt marsh. A renovation last year, designed by Pete C Quinn Architect, features sleek finishes in neutral colors that allow the contemporary home to blend into the natural setting.
Toes in the Water
20 Brown Pelican
305 S South Bald Head Wynd 28
Villa 28 is the premier property in the Villa neighborhood as it had an extensive renovation featuring top of the line appliances and features. The Villa Neighborhood was conceptualized and marketed by the Carolina Cape Fear Corporation in 1972. The vision was to create a comfortable community that cherished and complimented the natural environment of Bald Head Island. The Villas are some of the oldest structures on the island today. Touring Villa #28 is a unique chance to see history unfold with this state of the art renovation in one of the oldest buildings on Bald Head Island.
103 Muscadine Wynd
Sea Senorita is a newly remodeled home tucked into the Maritime Forrest on Muscadine Wynd. This home has a reversed floor plan with an expansive great room featuring vaulted ceilings. A screened deck offers private views of the Maritime Forrest making this home a perfect place to unwind and connect with nature.
Below are pictures of Sea Senorita prior to its remodel.
The Tudor House
(Before renovation pictures)
7 Laughing Gull
This is one of the more interesting and historic homes on the tour. Built in 1975, this home originally belonged to Bynum Ellsworth Tudor Jr. It was the 8th home built on Bald Head Island. Tudor lived and worked in North Carolina and retired to Bald Head Island. He was very proud of his contribution to the establishment of Bald Head Island. Tudor served on many different Boards and was instrumental in the development of many island entities such as the Village Chapel, Bald Head Island Conservancy, and Bald Head Island Club. A new family took ownership of the home in 2014 and had been in the process of an ongoing renovation that modernizes the home while paying tribute to its history. You can see the love of Bald Head Island that Bynum Tudor had by the way this home is placed on a hill blending into the natural landscape while providing views of the ocean and golf course. The current renovation celebrates the original concept of the home while providing modern touches.
