Buxton house description

What is your pleasure? Could it be surf fishing or bass fishing? Perhaps it is watching deer graze in your backyard or egrets and herons feeding on the pond just across the street? Maybe it is sunbathing on a deck while gazing at the Atlantic Ocean or comfortably lounging on another shady one? It could be relaxing in a hot tub or spotting the majestic Cape Hatteras Lighthouse just outside your living room window? Regardless of your pleasure, Gerry's Gem has it all!!

As soon as you enter this beautiful home, you will feel a soothing and relaxing calm take over. Rather than a typical beach motif, Gerry's Gem is decorated in warm jewel-tones and tropical plants that immediately make you feel comfortable and ready for a week of exploring, beach and water activities, or perhaps doing nothing at all.

If you are ready for some action, bring your surf and fresh water rods or rent them near-by. The surf is only a short walk away and a fresh water 'catch and release' pond filled with bass is just across the street. Don't forget your beach chairs, sun screen, boogey boards, and sand toys for those surf and sun days, too. If you are into water sports, the Pamlico Sound is near-by for kite-boarding, wind-surfing, or taking advantage of a half or full day of in-shore fishing. If that isn't action enough, hop on a chartered fishing boat and head to the Gulf Stream from the southern village of Hatteras or just north at Oregon Inlet. There is horse-back riding on the beach as well as dozens of shops to explore and restaurants to satisfy any appetite! Be sure to climb the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, the tallest lighthouse in the U. S. But regardless of what you do, do not forget your camera to capture the beauty and your memories of the Outer Banks.

At the end of the day, prepare your 'catch' in the spacious well-equipped kitchen or on the outside grill. For dessert, relax in front of the spectacular mountainstone fireplace and gaze at the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse right outside your living room window! When the sun goes down, take a stroll on the beach in the moonlight or break open a bottle of wine and enjoy time in the hot tub!

Whatever your pleasure...Gerry's Gem is the perfect place for it.

                      Location

                      Located in Buxton, NC, the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse is world renowned for its magestic beauty and bountiful history. From a ferry ride to Ocracoke, to Hatteras' Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum and to Mantio's North Carolina Aquarium plus everything in between, the Outer Banks has something for everyone!

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1991

                      About the owner: Gerry is a permanent resident of Buxton. She descends from a long line of Hatteras Islanders. Her Outer Banks ancestry can be traced back to the 1800's when some of her descendants shipwrecked in what is referred to as the Graveyard of the Atlantic, making it to land and surviving through a little luck, much tenaciousness, and help from the native people. Here they remained and generations later, her mother was born and raised in Rodanthe, just north of Buxton. Some of Gerry's fondest memories are of weekends and summer vacations on the Outer Banks. After graduation, she could not wait to make the Outer Banks her home. She chose Buxton due to its beauty, convenience, and rich history. While you are visiting Gerry's Gem and if you are lucky, you may have the chance to meet her. If so, be sure toask her to share some of her family's Outer Banks history. It is truly amazing!!

                      Why the Owner Chose Buxton:
                      Gerry fell in love with this piece of property! She designed this home herself!! Custom-built, its warmth and charm will make you want to return year after year!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      While visiting Gerry's Gem, teach your children how to surf and/or bass fish or spend time with friends and/or family casting for that 'big one'. It is easy to do with the surf near by and a pond filled with 'catch and release' bass just across the street. Another unique feature is the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse view just outside your living room window! Regardless of the temperture outside, you will want to spend time in front of the wood-burning mountainstone fireplace as well as time in the kitchen catching-up on conversations with friends or preparing your favorite fresh Outer Banks seafood!
