Carova Beach house description

Water front home on beautiful canal. Located just nine miles up the beach from the end of Route 12 and accessible only by 4WD or AWD. SUV. The Northern Beaches of North Carolina seem to have been set aside for those vacationers looking for a good old fashioned vacation. Our home is located on a secluded canal-front lot about 1000 feet from the beach.

Our home offers a unique choice, to play in the canal, which has direct sound access or to go to the beach and feel the warm sand between your toes. While on the beach you can watch the Dolphins gliding through the ocean or watch the Pelicans overhead. However, our favorite visitors are the Spanish Mustangs that visit from time to time. This herd of horses roam freely on the Northern beaches and are truly a joy to watch. Our home has wonderful ocean views from the upper deck so after a long day of play, you can relax in the 7 person hot tub on the upper deck and watch the sunsets over the sound.

On the days when you are beached or sounded out, just a short drive to the North, you can visit False Cape State Park and take a nature hike. To the South, climb the Corolla Lighthouse. You're in for a treat when you finally reach the top. The Whalehead Club is a fun tour and has a great outdoor park with great views of Currituck Sound. Tim Buck II is a neat shopping and dining experience. Our favorite restaurants in Corolla are North Banks, The Grille Room and the Route 12 Restaurant. Further South is the Village of Duck. This is another fun place to roam and shop. Restaurant recommendations in Duck are the Red Sky Cafe and the Roadside.

The Wright Brothers Memorial is a must and maybe take in your first flight. Visit Jockeys Ridge, climb the dunes and maybe learn to hang glide. About 60 miles to the south is Cape Hatteras, a scenic drive worth taking. In Manteo, visit the beautiful Elizabethan Gardens, and if you go, stay and see The Lost Colony an outdoor live theater experience. A visit to our home will have you coming back year after year.

                  Year Purchased: 1983

                  Why the Owner Chose Carova Beach:
                  My wife and I purchased our land in 1983, and had the house built in 2006. Back when we purchased our land, There was a guard house at the county line, and you had to know some one, have some type of real estate or rent from some one up there in order to get past the guard. I always like the mountains and my wife loves the beach, and this was the best of both worlds! There were buffalo roaming the area from a farm nearby and loved the horses and the other wild life in the area.
