When houses are designed as beautifully as Bellamere, they should be showcased! It was such a pleasure to photograph this house! Not only does the owner/designer have an incredible eye and talent for finding creative solutions, she also has placed such thoughtful gestures in her homes for her Topsail Island vacationers. This was the third house I’ve had the pleasure of photographing for her, and each one has been so unique with its own character.
Do you love to see the interiors of houses as much as I do?
It’s always an adventure. You really never know what’s behind those doors! In almost every house I’m in, I remember one key feature. All of these key features in my head will probably make it impossible for me to ever build a house (unless I have an unlimited budget)!
Located on South Shore Drive in Surf City, North Carolina, Bellamere was originally built in 1956 and has views of the Atlantic Ocean across the street.

You are not at a loss for outdoor seating at Bellamere! The wide screened in porch out front has a large swing, and opens out to another large deck. There’s a back deck that goes the length of the house as well.
Bellamere has an adorable sitting room just inside the door from the screened in porch, and then an open living and dining area in the back of the home, along with a game room off to the north side of the house.
There are 2 bedrooms downstairs and a master bedroom ensuite that takes up the entire 2nd floor. The master bedroom has a sitting area with ocean views!
Everyone always wants to see the kitchen first, right? This was beautifully designed for Bellamere’s unique space, utilizing both traditional cabinets and open shelving.
The bathrooms at Bellamere are stunning. There are really no words I can use to describe them, just click on the photos to see what I mean!
While I was photographing Bellamere, I couldn’t believe how many places you could curl up with a good book and not even leave the house! If I’m on vacation and it ends up raining, this is definitely the house I want to be staying in!
More about Rachel…
It’s probably not a secret that I have an insatiable appetite for seeing the inside of homes. Seriously, I go on vacation and find myself photographing the exteriors of houses while I tour a new area. Typically I smile and say “occupational hazard” but let’s be real, my inability to turn off the HGTV channel is how I started shooting real estate photography in 2013 to begin with.
