Real Estate Broker/Owner with The Outer Banks Real Estate Company LLC NCRE# 240210

Here is a one-of-a-kind home in desirable Southern Shores, the town with less development density and more common space than many other towns on the Outer Banks. With X Flood Zone designation, your lender will not require you carry flood insurance but you will feel safe knowing you are high and dry no matter what a storm may bring.

Situated high up and off the road, this home has the appearance of a graceful cedar shake hideaway. Featuring almost 3000 square feet of living space, this home has enough room to accommodate a large family and their guests. Besides the 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, there are optional rooms that you can use to fit your personal lifestyle. This home has used one as a 5th bedroom, there is an office/den on the top level, very large kitchen, dining area, gas fireplace with interior exposed brick chimney, laundry room, garage and enough storage space to satisfy anyone.  Unlike many of our beach cottages this home’s extensive and wide decking wraps around 2 sides of the house with so much room it feels like a large Southern porch! One upstairs bedroom opens onto a sun deck and the back of the house has a porch of its own.

Five minutes from downtown Duck, 5 minutes from Kitty Hawk and a short bike ride to the private beach - This is indeed a central location! 

The main floor has an open plan, but one that defines the dining and kitchen from the living room. An interior brick chimney fireplace services both the kitchen and living room. Beautiful unpainted cedar shake roof and siding are authentic Outer Banks! The pool, installed in 2007, occupies the north side of the house where you can choose between sun and shade as the time of day dictates. A new septic system and drain field was installed in 2008 when the pool was built. In 2013 a new water service line was installed. New garage door opener in 2012. In 2014 new living room furniture and one new King bed were purchased. New TV’s, microwave, dishwasher, pool furniture, adirondack chairs and an outdoor grill all arrived in 2014.  Now to the 2017 improvements:  New Pergo Flooring in entry, powder room, the great room bar area, the kitchen and laundry. New updated light fixtures and fans were also installed in 2017 giving the house a bit of an updated look and feel. Some buyers may want to continue the updating in the kitchen and baths.

Although not regulated by a Home Owners Association, for a voluntary fee of $55/year, Southern Shores offers incredible amenities including 3 Sound Side Marinas with boat launch, picnic and crabbing areas, Private Sound Beach with Playground, 34 Private Beach crossovers, Parks, Basketball and Soccer Fields. Join the SSCA Tennis Club for a very small additional fee. There is also a Boat Club Membership available for a small fee. Southern Shores is an environmentally aware community with acres of permanently undeveloped common areas and a desire to preserve the ancient Maritime Forest of live oaks and other native flora. It is heavenly!
