Property description

'Footprints in the Sand' is in the 4-Wheel drive area where the famous Wild Horses roam along the ocean and graze in the cottage yard. Extraordinary sightings include whales, migrating geese, ducks, pelicans and dolphins. The 4 Wheel Drive area is truly an adventure. This owner/contractor built cottage is well-equipped with comfortable extras; professionally decorated with beautiful furnishings, custom cabinets, granite and marble tops and tile. Two levels of decks provide magnificent views of sunrises and sunsets in this very secluded area. The large hot tub and sun-room are crowd favorites. Gorgeous private pool, deck, and a large inventory of furniture make the poolside very relaxing. Wireless high speed internet included.
Fishing: This area is renowned for great fishing. It is home to a vast number of species- striped bass, flounder, red and black drum, marlin, cobia, trout, tuna, spot and croaker. Surf fishing, fishing in the sound, and deep sea fishing are all available.

Four Lighthouses: The Currituck Lighthouse is located just a few miles south and it’s light is visible from the cottage at night. Bodie Lighthouse, Cape Hatteras, and Ocracoke Lighthouse are all located within a few hours driving distance. The lighthouse keeper’s houses, Currituck Light and Hatteras Light are open to the public.

Wild Horses in the Four-Wheel Drive area: Most days horses are visible on the beach and in the yards of cottages. The Wild Horse Association maintains over 100 horses that roam freely and feed on the vegetation. The Corolla Wild Horses are believed to have roamed the Outer Banks for more than four centuries. These amazing animals are descendants of Spanish Mustangs. Don’t be surprised if you wake up to find horses and their foals in the yard!
