About the owner: We visited Emerald Isle in 1974 with friends whose family owned an old cottage on the beach. We fell in love with the area and always hoped to someday own a home here.
Why the Owner Chose Emerald Isle: There is something so soothing about waking up and seeing the sound. There's nothing like taking your coffee or tea down to the dock to watch the sunrise or a glass of wine to watch the sunset. We love kayaking and this is a perfect spot to launch them. Our grandkids love to play in the warm shallow water of the sandy bottomed sound.
The Unique Benefits at this House: It's the best of both worlds...you have the benefit of being right on the sound & if you are beach lovers, it's just a short walk to the ocean. You also have the use of a cart to carry your chairs, coolers, etc. on the short walk to the Atlantic Ocean. Our lot on the Bogue Sound is a very unique marsh Eco-Environment adjacent to the shady sand path to the water. We have been working to bring this vintage beach house back to life for the past year and a half, and are happy to be able to share it for our visitors to enjoy the lack of commercial development in Emerald Isle NC.
