                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2002

                      About the owner: I'm a psychologist and researcher at the National Cancer Institute of NIH. My love-affair with the Atlantic's barrier islands began during my summers as a lifeguard on Assateague Island in Maryland. As surfing developed into a passion, I began to venture to Hatteras Island since it was the ideal water-sports playground in a pristine natural seashore setting. My two sons loved the beach when they were young, and continued to enjoy Hatteras as teens and now, as adults. Avon on Hatteras Island is the anchor where all the generations of my extended family love to get together on an annual basis. And, yes, I am still surfing - with the same crew - in Hatteras!

                      Why the Owner Chose Avon:
                      After 20 years of vacationing in the Outer Banks, I had a pretty good idea of what all of the locations and villages had to offer. The northern part of the Outer Banks is too over-developed to suit me. Avon Village is centrally located, has more amenities than any other Hatteras Island location, and is bordered on the north and south by the beautiful Hatteras Island National Seashore (5 mins from the house). You have easy access to the Ocean and Sound Beaches for swimming, surfing, shell collecting, windsurfing, kite-boarding, and many other activities. This area is truly unparalleled on the Atlantic Coast and has been repeatedly named in the top ten beaches in the US.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Kick back and enjoy the sunset over the water from the back deck! Kayak around the lake in the back yard. Very convenient to the beach!
