Sitting Pretty at Cape Fear Station

John Fisher said when he gives guests a tour of his Cape Fear Station home on Bald Head Island, he saves the best for last "My favorite room," he tells them, as he leads them out the door "is the porch "

In fact, John and his wife Beverly have a plethora of porches, with wrap-around verandahs on two levels of their home "We charged the architect with capturing the views," he said, of working with Wilmington' architect Mark Saulnier ,"and that he did." Not only do sightseers have clear vistas of the marsh, ocean and forest from the proches, "there is not a single window in this house without a view''
