Ocracoke cottage description

Charming 1930's island home completely restored in 2010...well, not quite. But our procrastination is your reward! Enjoy this 1 bedroom reverse floor plan home for a reduced rate. All rental income will help us finish our restoration project. All the important updates to keep you comfortable have been completed. What's missing? The window & baseboard trim and bedroom & closet doors. Everything else is up and running smoothly including new central heat & air, plumbing, electricity and heat pump. Our cottage has been lovingly restored by a master historic preservation craftsman and decorated to reflect the original colors with a bit of eccentricity, art work and lots of stained glass mixed in. You will find this a relaxing and calming environment.

Our cottage is located across from Silver Lake, at the junction of Fig Tree Lane and Howard Street. Located in the heart of town, but the cottage is well insulated and far enough back from the street to feel removed from the hustle and bustle of the village traffic. The rental space is located behind and above the Ocracoke Restoration shop (open 10 - 6), a small boutique selling vintage jewelry and antique stained glass.

This property has a private back entrance and off-road parking, an outside deck, mud room with washer and dryer, a full-sized bathroom and kitchen with all the amenities to heat up left-overs or to create a gourmet meal! There is a cozy TV room downstairs and a full sized living room with two sofa beds and a bedroom with an amazingly comfortable queen sized bed upstairs, with plenty of storage space and a selection of books and games. The upstairs windows offer an excellent spot for bird watching among the live oaks.

This is an excellent low cost opportunity to experience the magic in the heart of Ocracoke village.
