Property description

SEE VIRTUAL TOUR LOCATED JUST ABOVE THE PHOTOS SECTION ON VRBO.COM/348718, PART OF THE HOMEAWAY FAMILY OF VACATION RENTAL VENUES.

Tucked away on a 2.5 acre point and 600ft of waterfront, you’ll find this beautiful private river home. Located on Blount’s Creek, a protected body of water that attracts fishermen, kayakers, skiers, jet skis and tubers (and, occasionally, a school of porpoises who find their way into our little “oasis”), this home captivates the heart and soul and provides the perfect setting for quiet retreat and 're-connect' or just plain good family fun.
Just twenty minutes from Historic Little Washington and less than an hour from Historic Bath, Oriental and New Bern, this lovely home, built in 2001, is just off the Pamlico River, with Washington and Bath a short boat ride away. The open floor plan combines living, dining, and kitchen areas into a large living space, which is flanked by outdoor decking with grill and picnic table, a covered porch and a spacious screened-in porch that opens into the living area and the master bedroom. Three bedrooms as well as a loft, with sitting and sleeping areas and a small outside balcony, provide guests with privacy and some solitude. The floor plan also includes a laundry area and three and a half baths. Every room boasts lovely river views. Ground level offers an exercise area with treadmill and stationary bike, outside shower and ample parking for boat and cars.
We are particularly proud of the home’s recycled heart pine floors, cypress timbers and juniper (white cedar) walls and vaulted ceiling in the living area. Together, they provide a unique warmth that is often missing in today’s coastal construction.
Conveniences include a fully functional modern kitchen, working stone fireplace, Dish Network Satellite System, DVD Player, High Speed Wireless Internet, and CD Stereo System with indoor and outdoor speakers.
All of the bedrooms are beautifully decorated, enjoy lovely views of the water and have ceiling fans. The Master includes a connecting bath, a queen bed, vaulted ceiling, a HDTV with satellite and sliding doors that open into the inviting screened-in porch. Additional bedrooms include: one with queen bed and one with queen bed plus twin trundle beds (with full bath in between); and a loft with double bed and queen futon (with adjoining full bath).
Relax as you enjoy your breakfast on the screened-in porch. Spend the afternoon reading on the sundeck or dock or napping in the Pawley’s Island hammock nestled at the water’s edge – a special retreat!
Your own private boat ramp and wet slip accommodate most boats up to 24’ and the surrounding waters yield many species; two (2) kayaks are included for touring. Flounder, Rock, Redfish and Trout are the most frequent dinner guests and Blue Crabs from the pier provide hours of fun and a delicious appetizer as well.
Google 'Visit Washington NC'. You'll find fun links to children's sailing camps, restaurants, dinner cruises, fishing guides, tackle stores, summer theater, museums, nature preserves, Historic Bath, state parks, antiquing, shopping and more...
