About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

The house is 1,650 square feet and sits one one wooded acre. The house has the popular 'reverse' floor plan (living area upstairs with bedroom areas downstairs). The house sits on a cove of the Albarmarle Sound.

There is a 110 foot private walkway from the house to a dock with a gazebo. The house and gazebo face south-west offering beautiful sunsets. A porch off the kitchen faces the woods and offers a quiet serenity not often found at the beach. The beach (Atlantic Ocean) is less than a mile away and there is a bicycle path that runs in front of the 'Sound Crab', by the Wright Memorial ending at the major ocean access point in Kill Devil Hills.

The house is tastefully decorated. There is an extraordinary amount of glass to take advantage of the sound and woods views.The kitchen is well equipped and contains all modern appliances.The house is far enough off the road (that dead ends less than 100 feet in a cul-de-sac) that traffic is rarely heard.
The house is wired for the internet.

There is a virtual tour available with the 'Sound Crab's sister house the 'Beach Crab'(also on VRBO (#142260)). The virtual tour and a more extensive write-up (and directions) can be found at the attached web address.
