Northern Coast & Outer Banks house description
Can you imagine a rural, contemporary/nautical, waterfront home only 45 minutes from the famous seashore of the Outer Banks, NC? Ten minutes away there is a ferry that will take you to Knott's Island for a day of fun there as well.
This 10 acre slice of paradise is located just south of the VA state line, with a quick 30 minute drive on the Chesapeake Expressway to the Norfolk/VA Beach shopping areas.
For complete privacy, the driveway is 3/10 of a mile long, which ends at the beautiful home that sits on 250' of bulkhead waterfront.
The bulkhead includes a 100' pier which takes you to a sandy bottom swimming area only 3' deep. Located on Tulls Bay, just off the water way, the water level is 6-7' foot deep in the channel for boating, skiing, wake boarding, tubing, or just floating by your boat.
Surrounded by a wildlife paradise, you can catch a glimpse of Egrets, Blue Heron, Purple Martins and an occasional American Eagle along the protected wetlands of the area. Fishing is superb; along with crabbing, clamming, and net fishing at night, with proper fishing license. By water, you are just a short run to the Northwest River, Back Bay and The Albermarle Sound. Boating is a must!
The yard is approx 2.5 acres with lush flower beds and of course, the expansive veiw of Tulls Bay. Each evening the western horizon illuminates with some of the most breathtaking sunsets your eyes have ever seen. A property like this is 'few and far between' and a great escape from the hustle and bustle of nearby Hampton Roads.
The house is a 2300 square feet contemporary design, professionally decorated by Sondra Cooke, of Creative Designs by Sondra. Her works have been acknowledged on MTV 'CRIBS' ( Missy Elliot's house) and she has won mutliple Golden Awards from the Tidewater Building Association. She has also won an award for 'Best Swimming Pool Design', a National recognition.
Highlights of the home interior include a complete work out gym, master bedroom with full view of the bay, hot tub on the back deck and jacuzzi tub in the master bath, and attached garage for boat or car storage.
The house is equipped with Direct T.V. with DVR capability and two large screen T.V.'s. The kitchen is complimented with an oversized refrigerator with commercial features and all the usual kitchen amenities. The back deck faces Tulls Bay and connnects to an enclosed Sun Room/Porch with sliding patio doors. The pier is just a short walk away, in addition to a masonry 'burn pit' for night time relaxing and star gazing.
So, get ready for a break from 'Rat Race' living! Launch your boat at the public ramp just approx. a mile away, tie up to the pier, and set sail for relaxation, recreation, and the discovery of one of the most diverse waterways on the east coast.

Awesome Vacation Rental
Awesome Vacation Rental
This vacation rental provides something for everyone in the family. The house and grounds have a pride of ownership and is artistically decorated. There is a fitness room packed with exercise machines and weights. There is Direct TV and computer access. There is a large jetted tub in the master bath. The house was very clean and stocked with everything a vacationing family would need. The owner was very friendly and responsive. We felt like welcomed guests. The house has a homey and relaxed feel. The house is located on a large, quiet and private piece of property. Our dog loved the large yard. There is abundant wild life all around and views that look like paintings. There is a very long dock reaching into Tulls Bay. From the dock we caught white perch, catfish, bass and crabs. The bay water is about 3 feet deep, very warm and had no jellyfish. When not fishing or crabbing, we roasted marshmallows at the fire pit, swam and floated in the bay, swung in the hammock, and relaxed in the hot tub while staring at the postcard like sunsets and views of the bay. As you sit at the end of the dock and gaze across the bay, there is no sign of human activity at all. There is no development. It is like you are the only person on Tulls Bay. The last time I felt totally relaxed was while sitting at the end of the dock drinking my morning coffee. The dock is wired and lit. There is a fresh water shower at the end of the dock. There are produce stands and fresh seafood wholesalers close by. With so much to do while at the property, it was hard to leave. We did however take day trips almost daily to places like Virginia Beach and the Outer Banks. We loved the property and location so much we decided to stay a 2nd week. My whole family loved this vacation rental and we cannot wait to return.

Great Experience & Great Place
Great Experience & Great Place
I recently stayed at this property and really enjoyed it. The home is on a great lot, very private with great waterfront view just outside the back patio, great dock and pier. The home is very comfortable and has a decorating flare that is fun and whimsical, reflecting a "party atmosphere" and "enjoy yourself while here" theme. The owner Sondra was very easy to work with and a very nice person. The house was great for us during our stay, supporting friends and family in the area with plenty of room to enjoy ourselves with great outdoor areas such as the patio, hot tub, fire pit, and pier/dock. Simply beautiful sunrise and sunsets to enjoy on the water. The home is close to all the things to see and enjoy along the Outer Banks within reasonable driving distances of Nags Head, Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills, Beaches, Sand Dunes, Outer Bank Light Houses, great restaurants etc. Over all a great experience.
