Description Description

Upon arrival to this historical and unique 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath pseudo-Mediterranean style home, you’ll find yourself immersed in lush tropical landscaping (season permitting). Large palm trees and flowering bushes surround the beautifully renovated and repurposed cement structure originally built in 1947 that was once Missile Tower 4, an integral part of Operation Bumblebee.

Each of the three floors is open and inviting, drawing light from large windows. The main living area is on the 1stfloor with a fully appointed kitchen. The crown jewel is the oceanfront dining area, which is surrounded on three sides by floor to ceiling glass for a spectacular view.  Just off the living room is a beautiful wet bar with wine refrigerator and a half bath, perfect for entertaining. If you prefer to dine outside and enjoy the views and salt air, there are two separate dining areas that seat up to 6 people easily.  

Sweet Dreams: Linens are included for all standard beds for all reservations

The King master bedroom suite is located up the spiral stairway on the 2nd floor and includes a full private bath with sumptuous details like towel warmers and a Jacuzzi tub. Large sliding glass doors let in tons of natural light. On the street side you’ll find a sundeck where you’ll get a great view of the fourth of July fireworks show. The spacious oceanfront sundeck has stairs to connect you to lower levels. On a clear day you can see all the way to the Oak Island Lighthouse! Here’s the real treat – above the master suite is a cozy cupola/loft, perfect for a cat nap or a cozy reading spot. And take a minute to notice the embedded brass stamp in the floor. It is original to the structure and is marked “1947 - Tower Four”. One of the triangles point to true north and all corners of the home align with the points on the compass. Two more bedrooms are located on the ground floor, accessed either by the internal spiral stairway or by external door. Each is fitted with a queen platform bed. The ground floor also houses a full bath with decedent towel warmers, full size laundry and an extra den with large flat screen TV that also has a queen sleeper sofa. Each bedroom includes large windows overlooking the lush landscaping (season permitting).

  • King master, 2nd floor – with private full bath, private oceanfront and street side decks and cupola/loft
  • Queen room, ground floor, full bath adjacent
  • Queen room, ground floor, full bath adjacent

Unique Features:

You can still see the original tower at the center of the home, identified by the four concrete pillars, one at each corner. Additional living and dining space was created with additions on both the ocean and street sides. The home is constructed of concrete, and finished in stucco, Mediterranean tile and wood, creating clean and simple lines that pay homage to the utility of the original tower while creating a bright and cheerful home that maximizes space while minimizing changes to the original footprint.

Location:

Your beach rental is located approximately 1.5 miles south of the Surf City high rise bridge, near the central part of Topsail Island, puts you close to restaurants, shops, Surf City Pier and more! Be sure to visit some local attractions such as the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Hospital and the Missiles and More Museum, which tells the story of our island's past.

Overall we had a wonderful experience at Tower Four. We loved the location and the house. It is a very cool and unique place to stay. It is decorated beautifully with comfortable furniture. We loved all the windows and sliding glass doors. Our favorite room was the sunroom. The landscaping is gorgeous and the decks are fantastic. We would love to stay here again and will recommend it to our friends.
