Location

Car: Recommended

The town of Duck is less than 5 min drive - first you will see an art gallery, awesome shopping and restaurants. Further down Duck Road you will find wind surfing, jet skis, etc - lots of fun for everyone! Another 10 -15 min and you can see the wild horses in Corova! Take a chance - you will enjoy the drive. And if you go 'the other way' - back to Kitty Hawk - there is even more fun waiting. Fishing piers, shopping, restaurants, miniature golf, etc. You will love it!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We are a blended family - Vic is from Bluefield, WV, and Diana is from Newport News, VA. They joined forces in 1989 with their 6 children. And survived - to now enjoy 11 grandchildren. And all of them LOVE this home!

Why the Owner Chose Duck:
Diana grew up vacationing in OBX - and Vic came to love the place when he visited in 1975. And neither of us ever lost our love for the beach, the towns, the people. We own two homes currently - and had another one that we sold in 1989. We will always have a home on the Outer Banks of NC!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It is just the most relaxing place - and when you read the guest book and the wonderful words written about our home away from home - you will understand. The rocking chairs on the deck - the screened in porch - and the great kitchen with the tiki-bar. It just felt like home the first time we walked in the door.
