Property description

Gorgeous, 3,700 square foot beach house with high ceilings and hardwood floors, granite countertops, WIFI, 2 new flat screen TVs enabled w/Blue Ray, DVD, Netflix, Hulu, Pandora, Amazon on the 3rd and 4th floors. Also, a Wii console and DVD on 1st floor flat screen TV. Additional flat screens in master and kitchen. Furniture, decor, paint and accessory updates throughout, this year and every year.

Guests from NC, across the US, and Europe have enjoyed this beautiful, 3rd row family home with gorgeous ocean views, tucked away in the dunes of Atlantic Beach in a quiet, picturesque family neighborhood just 2 miles from Fort Macon State Park.

Walk to the beach from the house whenever you want. NO trolley rides or electric carts necessary! Take 200 footsteps on the sandy dune trail behind our house to the beach, or, walk/ride bikes around the block on the flat, paved road. Amazing views of the ocean and the intercoastal waterway surround the home from 3 floors.

This is a warm and welcoming North Carolina beach home, not a generic rental property, owned and carefully maintained by a family who treasures the NC coast- No management company to deal with; you will be talking with the owners who built the house and take special care of it year round. Your family having a wonderful time at the beach is important to us, and we will take care of your vacation needs!

You will find this home well stocked with beach equipment, books, movies, toys, games- all updated regularly. With plenty of room for multiple families to spread out- over 3,700 square feet of living space on 4 floors with high ceilings and beautiful pine hardwood floors. Charming antiques, comfortable furniture, original art, relaxing outdoor decks, swings- you'll feel right at home. Coastal camper families? We are a 45 minute drive to Camp Seagull, Seafarer, Don Lee, and many more. The Trinity Center is only 15 minutes away.

Special features of the home include: Two full kitchens, a 4th floor kids’ playroom decorated with custom 'Blackbeard the Pirate' mural by a North Carolina artist, filled with toys and video games, WiFi throughout, 52' flatscreen TV and entertainment center, wireless internet, 5 outdoor decks, 2 screened porches, freight elevator for groceries and luggage, new appliances, outside hot shower and gated privacy fence around property.

Atlantic Beach is located on the southern outer banks of North Carolina, in an area known as the Crystal Coast. Besides relaxing and having fun on the beach, there’s plenty to do while you visit. We send our guests a welcome package with links, contact info and descriptions of area activities, including:

Go antiquing, shopping, or enjoy great restaurants in Atlantic Beach, Morehead City or Beaufort. Tour historic places like the NC Maritime Museum and Fort Macon State Park. Visit the incredible NC Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores, about 5 miles away. Take a day trip to Ocracoke Island by ferry and visit some of Blackbeard's haunts. Spend the day at Cape Lookout National Seashore; the deserted island that boasts the diamond shoals lighthouse and a herd of the spectacular wild Shackleford ponies, where whole Atlantic Whelk shells wash up on shore.

Go fishing: inshore, off shore, or off the pier…Atlantic Beach is a boater's delight and marina access is only a few blocks from the house. Play golf at the nearby courses. Enjoy fantastic waterfront restaurants for the adults, or family-friendly places if you have the kids in tow. Ride bikes. Read. Walk the beach… Do as much as you want, or as little as you want, just ENJOY!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We live in North Carolina with our 3 sons. Our family has enjoyed Atlantic Beach for over 20 years. Our kids love Camp Seagull which is located about 45 minutes away. Boating, beach combing, and exploring Ft. Macon and other area historical sites are our favorite things to do.

Why the Owner Chose Atlantic Beach:
For years we looked at beach property up and down the Carolina coasts. We chose Atlantic Beach for its unbeatable combination of natural beauty, history, and authentic character. Atlantic Beach is a uniquely North Carolina beach, with area history dating back to the 1700's. Nearby Morehead City and Beaufort offer casual and fine dining, boutiques, art galleries, and a boater's paradise. The beaches are wide, full of shells, and not too crowded. Our neighborhood is just that- a neighborhood, with families enjoying the North Carolina coast the way they have for generations. We find this area to be the perfect destination for a beach trip- for families, for reunions, for gatherings of friends.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We are located 2 miles down the island from Ft. Macon State Park...a beautiful and historic 400-acre park right on the tip of the island, with gorgeous views of the ocean and sound from every angle. Our home is also just a 5-7 minute ride from the newest North Carolina Aquarium, in Pine Knoll Shores. The sharks that swim with the sunken German submarine are our favorite, and the sea turtles a close second. Though these national-caliber attractions are very close, the house is so comfortable, you'll have a fabulous vacation even if you never venture out. The beautiful beach is only 200 footsteps away from our back door, through a sandy trail in the natural dune area that gives our house it's privacy. The views from our home of the ocean and sound are gorgeous. There are swings and rocking chairs on the oceanside decks (there are 7 total decks for you to enjoy). The beach house is 3,700 square feet- stocked with games, movies, books and toys. We keep the house updated and very comfortable so you'll feel you are visiting a friend's home, not staying in a bland, bare-bones, rental house or hotel.
