                          Year Purchased: 2000

                          About the owner: This house was built by the owners to entertain our own families as well as create a relaxing place for guests. The owners themselves built it with a lot of sweat equity and love with hopes that our guests would appreciate it and treat it well.

                          Why the Owner Chose Southern Shores:
                          The Outer Banks has always been near and dear to my heart, This is a wonderful place to bring a family for some rest and relaxation. Enjoy the ocean, shopping unique gift shops, eat in some of the best restaurants in the world and even climb Jockey's Ridge for a one of a kind experience.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Castle in the Sand is like your own private hotel. There is plenty of room to spread out for privacy and large well planned common areas to be together. Have fun and games in your own private pool area with tiki bar while watching kids enjoy the pool and game room. Climb the widow's walk and enjoy spectacular views or just sun bath and commune with nature. This is a hideaway that leaves you refreshed and rejuvenated!
