What will $799,900 get you in the Outer Banks? A home with a waterfront view to be exact. According to U. S. News, the Outer Banks ranks number one in Best Family Beach Vacations in the United States. Perhaps it’s the manageable waves and lush landscape? Or maybe it’s the variety of sandy beaches, including one in Duck, North Carolina that is perfect for your four-legged friend. Whatever it is, these shores continue to draw vacationers and second home buyers alike. And we found the perfect second shelter, right on the water.
Located in the heart of desirable Duck rests this thoughtfully remodeled historic home with incredible waterfront views. It once served as a successful Bed & Breakfast and its charms are many. There is a total of five bedrooms, five bathrooms, and a spacious 3,200 square feet – ideal for a large family looking for a place to get away and reconnect with nature.
The original structure houses two bedrooms and two full bathrooms, one with its own private deck. And what’s not to love about the living room with cozy fireplace and gracious dining room with wet bar which opens to a fantastic screened porch? It conveniently looks out to the Currituck Sound. But that’s not the only place to catch a dramatic view.
The upper level of the house offers two sizable bedrooms, one-full-bathroom, plus a huge family/game room with fireplace and second kitchen. This area also affords an inviting deck with a hot tub and another with a sitting area for soaking up those breathtaking water views.
We love the private secluded yard with infinity-edge pool. Living here also means having your own private boat dock, which the listing says, “is possibly the longest private dock in Duck!”
Great as a vacation home, place to retire, or for use as a B&B, this Outer Banks home is tough to beat. You can even walk to Duck Village for a bite to eat and window shop and there is no need for a car. Sounds like a vacation to me!
