Property description

This little cottage gives an opportunity to relax and enjoy some of the most beautiful sunsets on the Outer Banks as you sit on the Albemarle Sound. This cottage is surrounded by farm land yet within ten minutes of Outer Banks beaches, restaurants, golf coarses and all the beach attractions.

You will wake up in the middle of an English garden right on the Albemarle Sound ready to kayak, canoe, sky, fish and crab right in you back yard. The views from the upstairs bedroom look through the trees right into the sound ... like being in a tree house. The main first floor bedroom opens onto a sleep porch with a wonderful view of the sound.

Children love the fish pond and swing out front and the sound is only wast deep for sever hundred feet out.

Upon request Audrey and I are available to teach mindfulness meditation and a practice of the breath. These practices can reduce blood pressure, help to loose weight, give kids better focus in school and in dealing with ADD & ADHD, and can help heal many diseases. Also upon request carving lessons on primitive driftwood will be given in the carving shack out back.

Keywords: Sound Front, safe shallow swimming, sandy beach, farmland all around, meditation cabin.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: Audrey and I have been married 49 years in what has been a rocky yet wonderful relationship. Audrey is an artist in the primitive form of driftwood carving and loves working with the creative side of young people. I teach a form of mindfulness meditation and pranayama (the breath) for healing. We also practice a 5,000 year old form of healing called "Ayurveda". You would be most familiar with this through Dr. Oz. We travel to India annually to learn and be treated by Ayurvedic Doctors. We both love the outdoors and when traveling we normally stay in tents. My most memorial trip was bicycling 5,400 miles across the U.S. with our two boys , Maury and Greg.

Why the Owner Chose Southern Shores:
We chose this location to get away from the traffic and noise on the main part of the Outer Banks. The sound is so nice for children and Audrey and our English Setter (MarSea) both love the water.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The cottage is located is a wonderful spot to relax and enjoy the water. Water is a wonderful setting for meditation and grounding. To be this close to the sound and so many water activities is also pretty nice.
