If you have found your way to Ocracoke on this website, I'm sure you will have read descriptions of how beautiful the island is, or maybe you have already visited.
After 15 yrs. experience of building eco-friendly houses, our new Ocracoke home has been constructed with as many 'green' features as possible. These features include 'energy star' appliances, bamboo floors, carpet by 'Flor' made from recycled materials, recycled glass tile in showers, slate counters/splashbacks, 'water sense' rated showers faucets and toilets, on-demand water heater, split system HVAC allows individual room control, HardiePanel siding, and built from sustainable forested lumber. We have chosen to include feature walls of washed wood in the dining and living areas and unique touches that make it our home, with a modern aesthetic that bring coastal living into the 21st century. We have made sure the windows made the most of the light and warmth, privacy and ambience.
The layout provides 3 large bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, an open plan living/kitchen/dining area...and then a bonus of another living room with a fully equipped kitchenette. Outside has 4 decks to follow the sun throughout the day and a very large screened porch with a family size table and chairs which is a delightful place to eat in the summer evenings. There are also 2 outdoor showers, one of which is built into an existing tree for a unique 'natural' experience (outdoor showers not available in winter!).
The house is in a quiet, central location but close to everything. We are equidistant between the village and the beach. This truly wonderful home is just a short walk to the Coffee Shop and other village shops and restaurants.
The house is WiFi and has ipod dock stereos and 3 flat screen TV's.
A kayak and a variety of surfboards are provided with the house, which you use at your own risk.
If you want to make a reservation and you are under 25 years old please contact the owners about the possibilities.

                          Car: Not Necessary

                          The Island has a great music and artistic scene, always something going on in summer...escape from EVERYTHING in winter. The house is WIFI.

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2012

                          About the owner: We moved from England to North Carolina to work at ECU in 2001. As soon as we found Ocracoke we moved so our son could attend the school and enjoy the many freedoms Ocracoke offers..and the surf! It has been the most wonderful 'home from home'. Now our son has graduated we are enjoying spending time exploring different places...but when we return to Ocracoke it rejuvenates us like no other place and always feels like home!

                          Why the Owner Chose Ocracoke:
                          We came for a weekend, then we came for a week, then we decided we couldn't stay away - the dog refused to leave!

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          The house is very private and it has great space. The light and decks are a wonderful asset; they provide a variety of outside areas for coffee, cocktails and good conversation. The huge windows frame the sunset skies. It has two bedrooms on the first floor level, with the third bedroom and living room being up/down a few steps so it is an excellent space for those wishing for a little separation. Many of our guests have found this area very useful for in-laws!
