A modern, functional renovation
of a beach house at
Wrightsville’s North End.
Wrightsville Beach has long been an import-ant
place for Ken and Denise. They regularly
took vacations to the island as their three chil-dren
were growing up. Seashell hunting, surfing
lessons, and excursions to Crystal Pier are all
treasured parts of the family’s shared memories.
When the couple purchased a home on
Wrightsville’s North End in 2017, their goal was
to create an ideal space for their family — now
grown to 15 people — whenever the children
and grandchildren visit them. They have fallen
in love with the neighborhood, a place where
kids can play in the cul-de-sac and run to the
less congested beach, and where neighbors look
out for one another.
Before and after: The updated
exterior of the North Ridge beach
home has a more nautical feel.
