148 Martin Lane Lots, Duck, NC 27949  

This 2 acre oceanfront estate is exquisitely appointed and designed in the style of grand beach manors of a bygone era. “Champagne Chateau� sits serenely behind a wide dune overlooking the Atlantic Ocean on the east side and has views of the Currituck Sound to the west. A former Du Pont Residence, the estate was built as a three-generation family beach home - for any time of the year - with several wings and central gathering areas to accommodate family groups. Sunrise and sunset can be enjoyed in this beautiful private setting. This one-of-a-kind haven consists of 5 lots (3 oceanfront and 2 semi's), beautifully landscaped with coastal plants and seasonal blooms. The home was designed by a notable North Carolina architect who integrated Northern Shingle style with elements of NC historic plantation homes by presenting a dramatic stair tower from the west side and double porches on the east, a detail brought to the Carolinas by planters from the West Indies. It adjoins the Audubon Sanctuary and isn't far from the many amenities of the Sanderling and Duck. The salon-style upper-level living area opens onto covered decks facing the ocean and westward to decks with views of the sound. The formal living room is a large area full of light with ocean views to the east and sound views to the west. Picture windows are the centerpiece of each of the four sitting bays on either side of the doors. The high tray ceiling is of clear Carolina cedar and the windows, doors and baseboards are clear cypress with wide heart pine floors. Enjoy ocean views from the master suite or cooking in the large kitchen with several work stations. The kitchen also has an alcove bar area boasting an under-counter wine cooler, refrigerator and a wall of pull-out pantry cabinets. For eating, the dining room highlight is the Venetian wax white and blue walls. A picture-window bay on the east brings in the light and ocean vista. On the west, an oversized glass door opens to a balcony overlooking the
