Year Purchased: 2001
About the owner: Two families bought the duplex together in 2001. Each family has thoroughly enjoyed their memories spent at the house over the years. We have found it a rare occasion not to see dolphins swimming or pelicans flying by during our visits there. I especially love sitting at the dining table with my family and looking out at the ocean. Older family members love sitting on the porch in the shade and looking at the ocean without 'ever getting sand on their toes.' The children have loved the freedom of biking from the house for either long rides or to just go and buy ice-cream.
Why the Owner Chose Emerald Isle: We bought this house because we fell in love with the incredible ocean views, the expansive beach area and the relative quiet that enables us to enjoy downtime with family and friends.
