Avon house description

Our classic, contemporary Outer Banks home is located on Pamlico Sound on the edge of the protected lands of the Salt Marsh. Our vacation home is designed to be relaxed and casual, and surround you with elegance and beauty - the hardwood, marble and tile floors, gourmet kitchen, exquisite bathrooms, leather furniture, entertainment features of HDTV's, sound system, games, books will please everyone in your group. The generous game room provides lots of fun - with ping pong, foosball, darts, stereo, HCTV, DVD with wifi and USB port, a.c./heat. Our home is located at the end of the road in a quiet residential neighborhood, the landscaped grass lot backs up to a beautiful and serene protected southernly lands of Hatteras Island. The lot offers 8 feet of bulkhead and wide steps into Pamlico Sound for perfect water entry for world-class windsurfing and kiteboarding and also includes a large private dock on the canal. We provide you with two Kayaks if you want to paddle the sound; 3 bikes are provided for cruising around quiet and quaint Avon village, which is now fully accessible by bike. 2013 brought bike paths to Avon, well placed off the road, up and down the island for safe, easy non-driving access north and south, to the beaches and stores.

The upper and lower decks offers stunning views of Pamlico Sound and its spectacular sunsets, as well as the marsh filled with wildlife and ever-changing light. See the pictures taken from our deck in the photo gallery. The night sky is awesome--on clear nights you cannot count the stars. In the late spring, you cannot count the fireflies. The large main deck has a secluded, shaded porch swing, picnic table, grill and plenty of chairs. The upper deck offers plenty of seating perfect for morning coffee accompanied by the morning birds or evening views of the most spectacular sunset on the east coast. On either deck, you will often hear the rumble of the ocean from one side and the soft lapping waves of the sound from the other side--and a chorus of chirping, singing birds all around. Fall and Spring are just as good as summer at our special spot on Hatteras.

The huge yard (3/4 acre) is nicely landscaped and has lots of grass for kids to play (croquet set and lawn games provided). Petit and small, well-behaved dogs are welcomed and can play below the house in a safe, shady, fenced area. The fenced area is connected to the upper deck so you can just let your dog out, no need to take them out on leash. Just keep them quiet, this is a residential area with year round dog loving neighbors.

The floor plan of the house is open, but the master bedroom (queen bed) and beautiful bath are separated from the two other bedrooms (1 with queen bed, 1 with pyramid bunkbed, twin over double) and bath. The kitchen offers a Jennaire Gas range, ultra quiet HE dishwasher new in 2013, side by side refrigerator with filtered water and ice in door, microwave/toaster (high end LG line), good coffee maker, grinder and french press, cuisinart blender and food processor, rice steamer, wok, toaster oven, popcorn maker, and lots of other excellent cooking conveniences. You'll find a wide array of high end cookware, dishes, barware and stemware. The tile work in the bathrooms is truly stunning; both baths have lovely stone tile work , rain shower heads, the master bath includes a large soaking tub. In the shower, you'll find hand laid river stones under your feet. But to wash up after a day at the beach or in the sound, you'll enjoy a full shower in our large private outdoor shower with hot and cold water, the dressing area is perfect, clean and comfortable. A full laundry room conveniently located inside and just off the foyer lets you take care of your clothes, cleaning up is easy. No running up and down stairs to do the laundry! The quiet, high efficiency washer and dryer are new in summer '13.

You likely know about Hatteras Island, which is why you're considering a rental here. If you've been here before, you know how wonderful it is! If you haven't been here yet, you've got to come see it to believe it. Hatteras is unlike any other east coast beaches. Most of the island is protected national seashore, with some of the most beautiful beaches and best surf fishing anywhere. If that weren't enough, Pamlico Sound is known as the best place for windsurfing or kiteboarding on the East Coast. It's a great place to learn those sports, or perfect your technique, with its shallow water and reliable breezes--and there are many great instructors on the island, including our neighbor Jay. If you prefer more sedate pursuits, a pleasant 10 minute drive will bring you to Hatteras Lighthouse, the tallest and by most accounts the most beautiful lighthouse in the US. The view from the top of the lighthouse is superb! The island is also home to many interesting shops, markets, restaurants, and other attractions.

We have designed the house to maximize everyone's enjoyment and relaxation. The game room, big protected yard, and ‘end of the road’ location lets the adults relax while the kids romp and play. A swimming pool and tennis are available only a short bike or drive away. If you need a good work out, a yoga class or help relaxing (which is unlikely, in this setting!), The Koru Spa is nearby, only a short bike ride away. Come enjoy this beautiful, natural spot, nestled between Pamlico Sound and the marsh, canals and creeks of Avon Village, with the famous beaches of Hatteras island nearby. It’s a truly unique spot, combining all the best of the Outer Banks.

We manage our property ourselves and our local property manager lives in Avon Village and works closely with us to make sure you have the ultimate Hatteras Island vacation experience. She is there to help you, we want to make your vacation truly amazing! We take pride in our home and prepare carefully for your arrival. If you have concerns about the quality of house cleaning and attention to detail, please read our stellar reviews. Our past renters will tell you about it better than we can.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2009

              About the owner: We live in Raleigh but get out to this beach paradise whenever we can. In Raleigh, Eliza is a speech pathologist, Jim does research, and Tom attends high school. Phoebe and Duke (the Yorkies) ferociously guard the house against deer, squirrels and other intruders.

              Why the Owner Chose Avon:
              We bought this second home on Hatteras island because it wonderfully combined all the things we love best about the islands (miles of undeveloped beaches, stunning sunsets, and the perfect mix of activities and serenity) without the aspects we can do without (crowds and congestion, especially). Other beaches are closer to our home in Raleigh, but we don't mind the extra drive because when we arrive we are HERE--and no place else can compare! With the Pamlico Sound location, the peaceful wildlife setting, the sound-side and canal dock, it easy for us to know this was the perfect house for us. Our addition of the very fun gameroom made it even better!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Eliza's fav is to ease slowly into the day, in the shady hiding place of the porch swing, surrounded by Carolina Jasmine and sweet bird song, sleepy eyes feasting on the glistening waters of the Pamlico Sound, the light playing off the reeds of the marsh with the pelicans and seagulls jockying for the best spot on the posts of the old mail pier. The best way to start the day!
