About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10) Rents SAT-SAT

Enjoy the peace and quiet of this luxury home called 'Edgewater' perched on the banks of Ginguite Inlet in the town of Southern Shores. This 4,800 sq. ft. property features two detached dwellings which are both included in the one rental fee. The main house has three bedrooms (each with its own separate loft area), gourmet kitchen, game room, and more. The guest house features one bedroom, a loft, and separate kitchen. Wide decks surround the property, offering expansive views of the landscape. This configuration is ideal for families who want to vacation together but still enjoy their own privacy.

During your stay you will have full access to the town's community beaches. Ride your bike or drive the short distance over. The rental packet includes parking passes good for use at Hillcrest Lifeguard Beach, among other spots. Also included are keys to the community tennis courts. And for boaters, you'll have privileges to use the Southern Shores Boat Club. Facilities include a boat launch for getting in. Then simply head over to Edgewater and the 24 ft. dock at the end of our pier.

The house is conveniently located just over the Wright Memorial Bridge as you enter the Outer Banks from Route 158. This convenient location means you won't need to fight traffic on your way in or out. Once you reach the Outer Banks, you're pretty much there!

As the photographs show, Edgewater is not your typical 'beach box' destination. Vistors experience the best of both worlds: Easy access to the beach and restaurants and shops, combined with the tranquility and natural beauty of the coastline against the backdrop of Kitty Hawk Woods. Watch the sunset over the marsh grass. Listen to the frogs sing. There's something to be said for open, undeveloped spaces. Soundside sanctuary. Edgewater is that.

If you'd rather, you can access the property from the water. We're just off the inter-coastal waterway on Albemarle Sound. The house has a dock measuring 12 x 24 ft. with sturdy mooring pilings and a wide pier leading to the house. The depth of the water is approximately 3 ft. at the shallowest. The channel is much deeper. Or bring your kayak or canoe and create your own adventure.

Here's a brief walking tour of the property:

When you walk in the front door you are met by the vaulted ceilings of the spacious great room, featuring enormous cross beams which were salvaged from an old Pennsylvania barn. The gourmet kitchen is here, with its granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. You'll notice the cabinets are made of wormy chestnut, an expensive wood which helps set the tone for the rest of the house. There's a dining table for eight, as well as bar stools at the kitchen counter for five more. The living room area has brown leather sofas and comfortable side chairs, arranged around a 52-inch flat screen T.V. with home theater surround sound. Edgewater is a 'smart home' and so you will also find WiFi, televisions, and stereo speakers you can control throughout the two houses.

Leaving the kitchen area there is a long hallway with three bedrooms and a separate half bath closer to the kitchen. Each bedroom has its own loft with either sleeper sofas or fold out beds. And the water views from each loft are incredible! The first bedroom on your left as you walk down the hall away from the kitchen features a pyramid bunk. This bedroom has shared access to a large bathroom, which adjoins the second bedroom on your left. The second bedroom offers a queen-sized bed. At the end of the hall overlooking the water view is the main house master bedroom, with king-sized bed and deluxe master bathroom.

Walking out onto the deck from the main house, you find the large hot tub facing the water. To your right, on the same level, you enter the separate guest house dwelling. Through the front door of the detached home, you can go either right or left. To the right is the living room and full kitchen, with spiral stairs leading up to the loft. Windows throughout the house face the water and the marsh, giving the feeling that you're floating in the nature space. Continue to the left, to the other side of the house, and you find the master bedroom with its king-sized bed and comfortable seating by the windows. The master bath is accessible from both the bedroom and the living room area.

On the ground floor is the in-ground concrete pool. Please note that during late fall/winter the pool is closed for the season. Next to the pool you will find the tiki bar and outdoor grill. All is within easy reach of the game room, which boasts a pool table, television, wet bar, and more. There's plenty of parking, both covered and not. In fact, there's a two-bay garage at your disposal. Off the parking area behind the house is the long, wide wooden pier leading through the marsh area to the dock. This pier is a wonderful spot for enjoying sunsets and the natural beauty of the Nature Conservancy preserve.

About Pierce Tyler

We are two families whose sons have known each other since they were six months old. We started shopping for a beach house in 2009, and Edgewater is the end result of that search. We are so looking forward to spending time there with our two families. And we hope you'll enjoy your visit, too!

Pierce Tyler purchased this house in 2010

Why Pierce Tyler chose Northern Coast & Outer Banks

We've been coming to the Outer Banks on vacation for decades--and love it here. Buying property was our way of cementing our ties to the beach.

What makes this house unique

The amenities of Southern Shores are truly amazing. Golf, tennis, beach-going, boating, restaurants, coffee shops, you name it. And the convenience of everything couldn't be better. When you're in Southern Shores you have access to so many wonderful opportunities, which is not always the case in other Outer Banks locations. Southern Shores is a real community--and it welcomes seasonal visitors with open arms.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a thank you note regarding our stay at the Edgewater property this summer. We were able to spend two weeks to everyone's delight. My husband and I along with our two sons and their families had such a nice time.

The dock was certainly a focal point as was the pool. We were able to spend last summer at the property and loved it, thus our return this summer. I thought it would be nice to let you know what a great house you have.

Thanks for a great time!

All my best.

Hidden Gem!!!

  • 5 of 5

This home has everything you need. It is beautifully decorated and is very open and inviting. There is plenty of space and lots to enjoy. The pool and hot tub are great, fishing on the dock is a lot of fun, and just hanging out relaxing and enjoying all of the amenities this home has to offer is wonderful. If you feel the need to venture out, the location is perfect, it's close to everything. Can't say enough and can't wait to return. This is a rare find!

This place is a VRBO score! Even better than the pictures. We had a fabulous week in the very spacious property. It was clean, well maintained, well decorated, 5 minutes to anything you would want and in an upscale neighbourhood. Beautiful sunsets off the back deck and an evening of star gazing in the hot tub. We will definately be back!

Family Reunion for relatives from 4 states

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect house for friends and relatives of all ages! Beautiful views from the dock, especially at sunset. We rented kayaks, which were delivered right to the house. The pool and hot tub are perfect for relaxing, and the outdoor kitchen next to the pool is so convenient. The neighborhood is quiet and a lovely place to walk after dinner in the evenings. The large home can hold many people, since each bedroom has a loft area. We cant wait to go back next year!

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Amazing property with plenty of room! Beautiful views off the loved renting kayaks and using the crab traps. Great tub is off the back deck with relaxing feel. Plenty of parking in the large driveway, and loved the secluded feel and neighborhood setting of the property! Large home and lot can hold many more than listed. Each of the 3 bedrooms in the main house has a loft with a futon or sofa sleeper, large well supplied kitchen, great game room, guest house has an additional master, extra kitchen and loft above the family room. The property has numerous TV nooks, multiple decks, rocking chairs with a view and a screened in porch! Property was very true to online pictures. Can't imagine anyone wouldn't just love it at Edgewater....we did! P.S.-Your Outerbanks trip isn't complete without a trip to Duck Donuts!!!

Edgewater is worth every penny!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent two week vacation at Edgewater! Great location for inbound traveling (no getting stuck on 12 to get to Duck or Corolla!!). Maritime forest is soooo relaxing and shady for those very hot OBX days. Residential neighborhood off the beaten path is perfect for running and biking. Paddleboarding and kayaking from the dock was so easy; and leaving them on the dock for two weeks was key. Caught over a dozen blue crabs from the dock and enjoyed crab mac & cheese!

The house itself is deceivingly large. It is really spread out and offers plenty of "quiet" space for those times when you need it. There was only five of us so we didn't have a huge need for the guest house or the lofts, but it was fun to explore and could see how multiple families or generations could take advantage of all the room. Furniture was nice, kitchen had up-to-date appliances (only negative is no filtered water - we had to buy a TON of gallons). Full cable, surround sound and house speakers (nice for connecting Pandora or an iPod), and wife - were all great perks.

Overall: can't beat it! Would love to return for THREE weeks next year!

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

This property exceeded all expectations. The outdoor space was exceptional for family entertainment. The location on the sound provided ideal water activities and the home was very well maintained. I would highly recommend this property to others and will most likely find my way back for a future vacation. It was a memorable vacation and the property played a big role in that.
