Via Landmark Sotheby’s International Realty in Wilmington, N.C.:
Called “the most coveted home on television” this residence is the inspiration and interior shot backdrop for Madeleine Stowe’s “Grayson Manor” on ABC’s popular television drama Revenge. This West Indies inspired masterpiece is set high on a bluff overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway and Atlantic Ocean. Old world architecture and precision craftsmanship can be found in every finish of this magnificent home designed by renowned architect Charles Dietsche.
The entry foyer greets guests with an enormous Rumford fireplace framed by double entrances into the great room. The living area is a tribute to the craft and architecture of the West Indies; grand in scale, and filled with soothing color palates of pearl gray, sea salt, and aquamarine hues that contrast elegantly with the tobacco brown Brazilian Walnut floors.
Overhead, coffered ceilings connect gracefully with exposed beams and louvered transom windows that give a sense of grandeur with a distinctly coastal flare. Adjoining either side of the great room are his and her wings of the common area. Her wing features the kitchen, formal dining area, butlers pantry, reading nook, home office and ladies lounge.
The kitchen is a chef’s dream with a 6 burner range including griddle, warming drawer, massive handcrafted vent hood, and sparkling recycled-bottle Vihara backsplash. Opposite, the living area is anchored by a gentleman’s parlor with floating wet bar, 1500 bottle climate controlled wine cellar, fireplace and waterfront billiards room. One of the most dramatic features of the home are the great room’s sliding doors that open the living area to the poolside veranda.
The infinity pool blends seamlessly into the blue waters of the ICW, and the waves breaking in the ocean beyond. Upstairs, the master suite features built in headboard, fireplace, and spectacular views of the sea. The master bath features shimmering glass tile shower, classic vanities and oversized tub. The second floor includes a full guest suite with kitchenette, laundry, bath and adjoining bunkroom. The third floor tower provides perfect space for a state of the art fitness center.
Exterior features include lush landscaping, infinity pool, spa, outdoor fireplace, as well as an herb garden and putting green.Located in Landfall, a private gated country club community located just minutes from Wrightsville Beach and Historic downtown Wilmington.
