                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1997

                  About the owner: Navy brought us to VA & NC in 1971 from Bethalto, IL. We fell in love w/the area & have been here ever since, except for 2 over seas assignments in Egypt & Japan. We both retired in 2013 & handle the cottage ourselves. When we returned from Japan we bought a home close to the cottage & our son's family who lives in Norfolk, our daughter lives in Atlanta.

                  Why the Owner Chose Nags Head:
                  We had been staying in this area at a friend's cottage for years, knew it was family area, that was quiet, private, but also close to everything we need.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Being close enough to just take a casual walk on the beach, enjoying the local area & being away from the hussle of the city and work. The only business in our area are the OBX Pier w/the Fish Heads Bar & Grill, a 1/4 mile down the beach, & the fire station!
