Nags Head house description

We'd love to share our new home with you! Recently purchased in June of 2014, and renovated most of the summer, we have created a comfortable, cozy cottage for all to enjoy. Three Mermaids' Cottage is located between the highways in Nags Head, at MP 10.5. We have a clean, spacious, well equipped kitchen, and living area. The main living area is easy to keep clean with travertine floors. Fresh paint and new furniture all done in beautiful shades, add to the beachy feel of our home. Enjoy your morning in the sunny breakfast nook, or on the east facing deck with colorful new outdoor furniture. The three bedrooms all have new carpeting, furniture and bedding. The queen beds have comfortable pillow top mattresses. The first floor bath is tastefully decorated and the second floor bath has a new walk in shower with ceramic tile. The master bedroom has a large closet, and a sitting room attached for curling up with a good book. The balcony nook is another spot in which to relax and simply chill out. The house has a dry entry, for those occasional rainy days, and mud room with laundry area. There is an outside shower with dressing space, charcoal grill, and covered picnic table. There is also a newly installed modern HVAC system for your comfort.
This home is all about location location location! It is two blocks from the beach, it's a short enjoyable walk in a quiet neighborhood with direct beach access. You can walk to the grocery store, gift shops, souvenir shops, art galleries, restaurants, etc.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2014

          About the owner: We are new owners! What an adventure this has been!! Originally we hail from SW Pennsylvania, but we have been drawn to the coast since we were both young. As a child my parents always took my family to vacation at the shore. My husband has been coming to the coast since his high school days. We fell in love with the peacefulness and charm of the Outer Banks 27 years ago. It reminded us of a quaint beach town from years past. We breathe easier knowing it will never be overrun with high rise buildings, and neon signs. We have been vacationing here with our three daughters for those 27 years. It has become a family tradition for us. Now it is time to expand, and share this tradition with our new grandbabies. We have created many memories here throughout the years. We have tried to teach our daughters about the importance of the conservation of the coastal areas, from the preservation of the wild horses, to the salvation of the sea turtles. We now hope to educate our grandchildren to respect this planet and it's creatures for future generations to enjoy. We hope to create new memories with our family and friends, and hope that you will do the same.

          Why the Owner Chose Nags Head:
          We love this area of Nags Head, it has that quiet, neighborhood feel. The location is perfect. It's two blocks to the beach, and one block to the grocery store. It's close to the Nags Head bike path, and we enjoy riding our bikes as often as we can. There is a beach rental shop a mile north of us for anyone interested in renting bikes, kayaks, beach chairs, umbrellas, or anything you would need. My husband can enjoy fishing from the shore, or from the Nags Head Pier which is a mile south. He can golf at the many golf courses in the area. I can walk to the galleries and quaint shops. Sea Green Gallery is a favorite, along with Something Fishy and Gulf Stream Gifts. Gallery Row is also a few blocks away. There are some very good restaurants that are within walking distance also, one of our favorites is the Red Drum Tap House. Tortugas Lie is located nearby, and Lucky 12 Sports Bar is 1.5 miles away. A coffee shop is right up the street offering flavored coffees, cappuccinos, and pastries. Everything is within close proximity but it doesn't feel crowded. Directly across the street is a wooded area allowing privacy and not giving you the feeling of 'living in a fish bowl'. Honestly, the location can't be beat, no busy highways to cross, no traffic to fight. You wouldn't have to move your car once parked.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          We think the house itself is unique. The minute we walked in, we saw the potential. I knew with hard work and determination we could turn this house into a charming, cozy, comfortable space. We love the salt box style. The openness of the main floor, with the vaulted ceiling and balcony, gave the home style and character. We also love the fact that it has areas that offer a tranquil setting, the breakfast nook, the balcony area, and the sitting room in the master bedroom. There is also a 'peek a boo' ocean view from the master bedroom bay window. The house is bright and open, and truly has the beach cottage feel. We have done a significant amount of work to the cottage and hope to update something every year.
