Carova Beach house description

This Brian Brumfield custom designed home is found in the community of SWAN BEACH which is snuggled between the Currituck Banks and the Currituck National Wildlife Refuge (north/south) and the Atlantic Ocean and the Albemarle Sound (east/west). SWAN BEACH is home to the wild mustangs, a pure bread strain that has descended from the Spanish mustangs brought over by the early settlers. You'll see horses roaming the water's edge. Homes are nestled amongst native vegetation spattering the waterscape which only the great Atlantic can paint.
WATERSCAPE sits behind a vegitated sand dune, second house south of 'Canary Street'. It is about 3.5 miles up the beach from the paved roads. Nothing has been spared to make sure this cedar-shake sided home, with every appointment and detail, meets with your beach cottage expectations. A reverse floor plan maximizes those ocean views. The wow factor permeates the great-room with its cathedral ceilings, juniper wood paneling and wainscoting. Double paned extra large windows make for a spacious and bright welcome for you and your guests. WATERSCAPE is where you’ll fall in love…again. Here you will find all the comforts to create unforgettable memories of entertaining family and friends. Enjoy an after dinner movie on your 42” HDTV. The open plan connects living and dining areas to the heart of the home...the kitchen. This gourmet’s delight features: custom cabinetry, plenty of countertops and a pantry to store all your groceries. Up-to-date appliances are reinforced by the second refrigerator on the ground floor…convenient for when you cook outdoors. Your family will enjoy the sit down meals in the screen-porch/dining area. On the mid-floor there are three bedrooms. The king master bedroom expands across the full east side of the house and includes an en-suite bathroom where you will find your own personal spa with an extra large shower. It has sliding doors that enter the private deck where the hot tub is located. On this floor, there is also a king room, bunk room and hall bathroom. The ground floor features a queen bedroom with ensuite bathroom, a utility room and washer and dryer.

                  • SWAN BEACH is home to the wild mustangs, a pure bread strain that has descended from the Spanish mustangs brought over by the early settlers. You'll see horses roaming the water's edge and throughout the drifting dunes. Homes are nestled amidst native vegetation that protect the sand dunes, which in turn protect the cottages. The frontal dune line is where the endangered loggerhead and green turtles lays their eggs for safe keeping. Among the dunes you will also find the nests of sea turns and their chicks. Barn swallows make their mud nests on the first level under the house, Carolina turtle doves nest in the rafters of the second and third decks along with the purple martins. Watch the surf for traveling dolphins which are a lot easier to spot than the magnificent whales. Around new years day we are often visited by a migrating harbor seal, resting on his way to warmer waters....moreless

                          Car: Necessary

                          Conveniently located directly across from the beach access walkway, Waterscape offers unobstructed ocean views and white sandy beaches right out your front door. Relax in the hot tub and enjoy the 4x4 lifestyle. Nourish your body and spirit and reconnect with nature.

                          SWAN BEACH is home to the wild mustangs, a pure bread strain that has descended from the Spanish mustangs brought over by the early settlers. You'll see horses roaming the water's edge and throughout the drifting dunes. Homes are nestled amidst native vegetation that protect the sand dunes, which in turn protect the cottages. The frontal dune line is where the endangered loggerhead and green turtles lays their eggs for safe keeping. Among the dunes you will also find the nests of sea turns and their chicks. Barn swallows make their mud nests on the first level under the house, Carolina turtle doves nest in the rafters of the second and third decks along with the purple martins. Watch the surf for traveling dolphins which are a lot easier to spot than the magnificent whales. Around new years day we are often visited by a migrating harbor seal, resting on his way to warmer waters. We hope that you enjoy being surrounded by nature while at the same time having easy access to shopping, food shopping, gas stations, restaurants, movie theater and tourist attractions...all located on the paved road just minutes away.
