It’s hard to miss the custom-built home off Wrightsville Beach’s Causeway Drive, where construction is almost finished.

Incorporating more than 170 tons of structured steel and 167 concrete bridge pilings, the house is built to withstand a Category 5 hurricane, said Chris Parker, founder and principal engineer of the civil construction and engineering firm Parker Group.

Ipe hardwood lines the exterior of the four-bedroom house, surrounding oversized windows that were custom made and provide sweeping views of Banks Channel.

“There’s over a million dollars in glass alone in this house,” said Parker, who also served as the developer on the project and went through the permitting process with multiple agencies.

Other touches include a 25-meter lap pool, cast-in-place concrete elements and a 17.5kW solar system as well as geothermal heating and cooling.

“This is like a modern luxury ski resort in Wrightsville Beach,” Parker said.
