Southern Shores house description

A wonderful retreat for couples or families! Three night 'mini stays' during April and May give you time to see the attractions of the Outer Banks without the crowds or just relax at this beach front cottage and enjoy the views! My favorite time of year on the "Banks", the weather is mild and there is plenty to see and do. The house is a great jumping off point for sites to the north (Duck, Corrolla and off road north beaches) OR south (Wright Brothers, Nags Head, Lost Colony and sound/sea excuritions).
This custom ocean front home begins with the hexagonal main house with views of the ocean from the great room. There are dining areas and an adjoining all season sun porch right off the living area. The well stocked kitchen provides plenty of space to create meals and orchestrate morning coffee (2 drip, a Keurig & a Tassimo). The home has a convenient main floor laundry area stocked with all the linens you will need for your visit (sheets, bath towels, beach towels and beach bags). Decks around the upper level and on the dune top provide panoramic views and multiple sitting areas to enjoy the vistas N,S,E & W. There is a shady lower level deck equipped with table and chairs as well as the outside shower. Multiple umbrellas, both deck and beach, are all supplied as well as beach chairs, boogie boards and 2 ocean kayaks.

Comfortable furnishings and restful colors make for a relaxing visit. The four season sunporch has a 40' HD flat screen TV and the lower level with pool table and 2nd flat screen TV, provide the kids (young and old) a place to play.

The private master bedroom wing (north) has a large picture window overlooking the ocean. The master bathroom with mosaic glass tile, dual spray shower, Jacuzzi (TM) tub, vessel sink and modern finishes make this bath a retreat to look forward to.

The guest wing located off the living area (south) has two bedrooms and full bathroom with tub/shower combination. Bedroom one has a king bed and sitting area and bedroom two has a double bed and a single bed.

The main house is accessible from either the lower level foyer entrance or from the main upstairs front porch. There is also a outside ramped walkway from the front of the house to the back of the property. This provides access to the ocean dune top deck and direct access to the upstairs main living area of the home and oceanfront deck, WITHOUT ANY STEPS. This has been useful to guests who have difficulty with steps and also for aging four footed furry family members!
Everything you need in a large and comfortable home!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1968

About the owner: The Burns family is the current owner of this wonderful beachfront property. Originally built in the 50's, the current owner's family purchased the property in 1968. In 1985 the year round residence was built and is now being offered as a vacation retreat. Come enjoy our home and share the beauty of the Atlantic Ocean panorama.

Why the Owner Chose Southern Shores:
This home at 30 Ocean Blvd. is easily accessible to shopping, restaurants and the many outdoor activities of the outer Banks. Visit Duck or Nags Head, Kill Devil Hills or the sounds of the Outer Banks from this centrally located property. Just a mile and a half from the Wright Memorial Bridge, when you reach 'the banks' you are here!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This is a great home for families looking to spend quality time with the kids. Short car rides take you to the many of the local attractions. The beach is just across the deck over the dune and there are miles of quiet streets and pathways thru Southern Shores community to explore on foot or by bike. This house offers separate sleeping wings on the same floor for maximum privacy. You will love watching the sun rise from the master bedroom!
