                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2003

                      About the owner: Bill Blair is a retired school principal who has lived in Carteret County for more than 40 years, and his people have been here for generations. Bill lives in Beaufort, North Carolina, was on the Carteret County School Board for ten years, and is a volunteer with Beaufort Historic Association. Bill's wife, Deborah Van Dyken, is a family law attorney in Beaufort, is a recent past president of Beaufort Ole Towne Rotary, and enjoys walking their dogs, Bubba and Rosie, around Beaufort.

                      Why the Owner Chose Beaufort:
                      We bought this investment property because it is in a great location and right around the corner from where we live.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      When you stay at Shell Cottage, you can walk just two blocks to great restaurants, shops, the Beaufort waterfront, museums, ferry boats, and the post office. Also, Shell Cottage is in the Beaufort historic district, and it is fun to walk by these beautifully restored houses dating back to the early 1700's. Beaufort is also on the Intercoastal Waterway and is a popular stopover for many wonderful boats of all descriptions. Walking down the Beaufort boardwalk, getting an ice cream cone at the nearby General Store, and looking at the numerous boats moored at the Beaufort docks is something everyone will enjoy.
