Before being coined the Half and Half House by critically acclaimed architect Michael R. Kersting this home's life began as a small beach cottage in the thirties. Over the course of it's history the home has been masterfully restored and renovated into a work of art you must personally experience to truly appreciate. The traditional craftsmanship of the original cottage is evident from the four-over-four sash windows, french doors with attached decorative balconies, and cedar shake siding at the front of the home. Towering from the multi level roof top decks to the rear of the home is Kersting's first modernist architectural addition on Wrightsville Beach. The home's interior is an eclectic mix of vintage and contemporary details, blending formal Victorian and cottage style fixtures. At the heart is one of it's most creative features, a stairwell completely clad in Ipe from the ground floor winding all the way to the roof. The staircase is illuminated from top to bottom by a single light passing through ships prisms. Foremost architectural components and custom touches abound in this home. There are just too many features to list. Please contact the listing agent for additional information or to schedule a tour.
