Imagine it ... the magical cottages of Captain Charlie's Station ... yours to own, preserve, and enjoy. All three fully furnished historic cottages and outbuilding are included in this offering, as well as beach front vacant land that allows for a 3,000 sq ft home, and an additional parcel located on Federal Road. Captain Charlies cottage 1 offers 1,544 sq ft, three bedrooms and one full bathroom. Captain Charlies cottage 2 offers 1,300 sq ft, two bedrooms and one full bathroom. Captain Charlies cottage 3 offers 1,600 sq ft, three bedrooms and two full bathrooms. From their unique vantage point, each cottage boasts soaring panoramas of the cape, Frying Pan Shoals, and Atlantic Ocean. These three cottages, built in 1903, still stand sentinel high atop the dune ridge overlooking Cape Fear. With their cedar siding, wide porches, and deep roof overhangs, the cottages embody the ultimate coastal vernacular architecture - both simple and elegant in form. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1978, the cottages are the oldest standing homes on Bald Head Island and are named for Capt. Charles Swan, lightkeeper from 1903-1933. Along with Old Baldy Lighthouse, the trio are the most iconic structures on the island, revered symbols of the island's storied past and resiliency. Let Bald Head Island's history become a part of your own family's legacy!
