Ocean Sands house description

Enjoy the comfort and luxury of this spacious and beautifully decorated vacation home in Corolla on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. This five-bedroom, three-bath home features three adult bedrooms - one king and two queens - with cable TV, DVD, and VCR in each room. Children's rooms have bunk beds and pyramid beds. The home offers total sleeping accommodations for 14 - plenty of room for multi-family or extended family getaways.

Upstairs, a fully-outfitted kitchen and large dining area offer the opportunity for relaxing sit-down dinners. The family room provides comfortable seating and an entertainment center with a stereo, TV, VCR, and DVD. A downstairs recreation room offers the perfect getaway for the kids with a pool table, TV, and Sony PlayStation 2 available for their enjoyment.

Outside, try your hand at a game of horseshoes, practice your jump shot, or cool off with a dip in the pool. Large trees in the back and side yard provide a measure of privacy for the pool and the four-person hot tub located on the mid-level decking. New patio furniture adorns the upstairs decking which provides a partial view of the ocean and lake and a large area for sunbathing. Those who prefer a cooler retreat can enjoy the comfort of the screened porch.

A stocked freshwater lake is just steps away for those with a passion for fishing. The ocean and wide sandy beaches of Corolla are a 5 to 10 minute stroll away. Restaurants, shops, movie theaters, golfing, miniature golf, paddle boats and kyaking are all within one mile of this beautiful home assuring you and your family lasting vacation memories.

                      Manager info

                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      About: We are Gary & Mary MacPhee. We live in Hillsborough, NJ with our 3 sons ages 22, 21 & 15. Gary grew up in Rhode Island and Ohio; Mary grew up in Maryland; but they met at The Ohio State University and married after graduation. A job opportunity brought us to NJ where Gary works for Merck Animal Health. Mary is a stay-at-home mom.

                      Why Ocean Sands:
                      We originally purchased this home as an investment for our future, but quickly fell in love with the house and the Outer Banks. We have had (and continue to have) many wonderful memories here with extended family. It is a great place for everyone to get together from various states to enjoy fun and sun and reconnecting.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      We love the quiet street that the house in on; the nearby lake where the kids have caught fish and fed the turtles; the attractions that are just a mile up the road (miniature golf, go carts, dining, shopping). Our favorite places to sit and enjoy are the private pool and the screened-in porch.
