Property description

Our home has three bedrooms, all on one level, and a modern kitchen conveniently connected to a dining area suitable for 6-8. The spacious, 1900 square foot, home has two bedrooms on one side of a great room, one with a Queen-size bed, one with a single bed. Located at the other end of the house are the third bedroom with two twin beds, a washer and dryer, and a den/television room with a new pull-out sleeper sofa. A deck runs the full length of the river/marsh side of the house, with a southern exposure, grill, porch swing, and hot tub. Guests may use two kayaks (one tandem, one single), and a bicycle. Pets are welcome in the house, if on some variety of flea/tick preventer, but our dog spends most of her time on the deck.

Car: Necessary

Our home is a quiet retreat setting at the end of a sandy path, yet a short walk to local shrimp at Holden Seafood, four miles to two groceries, other stores and restaurants in downtown Shallotte. For beach-lovers, Ocean Isle Beach is within 5 miles and Sunset Beach within 9 miles. The deck has a fantastic view of the Shallotte River. Kayak from our front lawn at high tide using our 2 kayaks, paddle the river, fish or find clams, oysters and crabs.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We have lived in North Carolina for 42 years, currently in Geensboro, after growing up in Upstate New York and Florida and going to college in Pennsylvania, Boston and UNC-Chapel Hill.

Why the Owner Chose Ocean Isle Beach:
Our home offers a great place to retreat, connect with nature, get in touch with the ebb and flow of tides in the marsh. It is away from the congested beaches, yet close enough to enjoy them. For golfers, over 30 Myrtle Beach and Brunswick County courses are within 30 miles.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
After looking at beach property along the entire NC coast, we found this river-view gem at the end of a sandy path, with what some have called a million dollar view.
