Please book early for 2014 as our property usually books up by March for the summer! This immaculate home is located directly on the Albermarle Sound with a private dock and swimming platform. Enjoy a (FREE) solar heated swimming pool just feet from the Sound. We also use a salt chorinator, which is much healthier than chemicals and better for the skin. An acre of beautiful landscaped yard and breathtaking waterfront views are yours to enjoy!
There are two large Master suites with Andersen french doors that open to sitting areas where you can enjoy the serenity of the water with your morning cup of coffee and listen to the variety of native birds. The home, with touches of Cape Cod decor throughout, has a total five large bedrooms, three full baths, a large indoor jacuzzi tub, a 7-person outdoor hot tub, wood floors, French Doors onto a patio, a gas fireplace, and a beautiful piano.
Also, the bedroom areas are on either end of the house and separated by the common living area (living room, kitchen and dining room). So, there is much more privacy in situations where there are two families or if the adults want to be separated from the kids (smile). The property is located on nearly an acre of beautifully landscaped grounds with several large pine trees where the kids can explore the hideaways, nooks and crannies, and spend hours swimming in the lake-like Sound or in the heated pool with Soundfront views. Use the firepit in the backyard for smores!
Guests have told us time and time again that the pictures don't do justice to the experience. There are (2) two-person kayaks for your use and a hammock for relaxing in the back yard. Crabs are plentiful from the dock and the Sound has a clean, sandy bottom and is just 4 feet deep for 100 yards. Call soon to enjoy kayaking, swimming, fishing, bicycling, or relaxation at our home.
Located away from the hustle and bustle of the tourists but close enough to enjoy the quaint shops, the local winery and eateries. This house will provide the rest and relaxation you need. If you are looking for an escape with or without family, we invite you to visit our Soundfront home at the Outer Banks!

Year Purchased: 2004
Why the Owner Chose Southern Shores: We have been visiting the Outer Banks for several years. We wanted a quiet location to spend time with our family. We were so blessed to find a property right on the sound with an existing dock and all on one level. Its located on the mainland but still on the most beautiful waterfront and the best sunsets at the Outer Banks. Its a 5-7 minute drive right over the bridge to the main Outer Banks attractions so its close to the 'action' but private for those of us who truly like a vacation away from it all.
The Unique Benefits at this House: An acre of flat land with a beautiful back yard right on the Albemarle Sound. The crabbing right off the dock is excellent. The water is clean with a sandy bottom and about 4 1/2 feet deep as far as you can see! Our hot tub is open year-round and the in-ground salt chlorinater pool is open from May-October. The home has been renovated and accomodates 2-3 families very comfortably with 5 bedrooms and 3 full baths. We provide one canoe and one kayak for your use in the sound. We have several repeat renter families that have been coming to the Outer Banks for a long time. Once they stay at our place, they say nothing else compares and its like staying at a home rather than a rental property.
