Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: Royall Heights is named after Royal Heights, Southampton, Bermuda, where we spent our honeymoon. We added another L in honor of Julia Bryan’s parents, the Royall’s, who made this island an important part of their family life for fifty years. The house was build by Julia Bryan's parents in 1999, and we bought the home from the family in 2003. We visit the home ourselves as often as possible, and especially enjoy the proximity to Atlantic Beach, Emerald Isle, Morehead City and Beaufort.
Why the Owner Chose Atlantic Beach: Royall Heights is a clean and beautiful second row home located on quiet Pinewood Circle in Pine Knoll Shores, less than half a mile from Atlantic Beach, and an easy walk to private beach access with parking. The neighborhood is on the beach side of Salter Path Rd., the busy main road on the island, eliminating the hazardous pedestrian crossing necessary from the sound side. Parents can feel good about letting older children walk safely to the beach without supervision. The home features spacious upper and lower front decks, with bright sunshine on the top level and a shaded outdoor retreat below. Outdoor grilling is convenient to the kitchen through a door to the rear deck. The upper deck and the roomy upstairs bedrooms have an unobstructed view of the ocean in all directions. For the convenience of our guests, one of the three bathrooms is equipped for those with physical disabilities (26.5' wide door opening). A thick stand of holly trees, wax myrtles and live oaks provides almost complete privacy from foot traffic and neighboring homes, and an abundance of singing birds adds music all its own throughout each day. Most of the neighbors are year round residents, and all are friendly and accommodating. Royall Heights is perfectly situated for easy access to Emerald Isle, the N.C.Aquarium, restaurants, and other attractions on the Crystal Coast. Please call today for more information about this ideal vacation home.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Our home is surrounded by thick maritime forest of holly trees, live oak and myrtles. This provides an enormous amount of privacy, and also is home to many singing birds who serenade all day long. It is very relaxing to sit on either of our large front decks and read, visit or rest with such peaceful surroundings.
The elevator is a rare amenity in our area, and provides convenient access for anyone who has difficulty with stairs. One bedroom on the top floor is immediately accessible from the elevator, and features a full bathroom (26.5' wide door opening) equipped with a sink, shower and commode designed for wheelchair accessibility.
