Property description

Down the ' Road Less Traveled!' Paradise at the end of a mile dirt path. Beautiful 5 bedroom, 4 bath waterfront cottage 6 miles from historic Beaufort. Anchor your small flat bottom boat right in front of the house for daily enjoyment!

A great destination for families and good friends. Sandy beach in front yard, perfect for launching kayaks, canoes, sailboats, wind surf equipment, crabbing, floundering, sunbathing, watching for dolphins, exploring, and just escaping from the 'real world'!

At the end of the day, enjoy a relaxing drink on the balcony, taking full advantage of the wonderful view of North River. (it's not really a river...it's a vast view facing Shakleford banks!) Listen to the gentle waves on the beach, enjoy the coastal wildlife, and make a toast to a spectacular sunset!!! Cheers! :)

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: We used to live in Atlantic Beach on Bogue Sound. While we loved it for many years, we yearned for more acres and privacy. John and his friend Ron discovered this beautiful property and we all knew we were destined to build here! We did, and our children were in high school/middle school at the time. We love the privacy and being so far away from reality, but in fact, wthin 6 miles of a beautiful town, Beaufort! As well as 7 miles from the fishing village of Harker's Island! We couldn't have animals other than cats or dogs in Atlantic Beach, but out here we have a mini horse, and 2 goats that love to be petted and fed carrots and apples! Our 4 chickens love attention! Our 2 dogs, an old, gentle golden retriever, and a frisky pound puppy, can either stay at the house or we will relocate them. They love going swimming with you!!! Great for kids that love animals!!! We will be in charge of their care, so no worries there! :)

Why the Owner Chose Beaufort, NC, USA:
Peaceful, serene, secluded location, panoramic view of North River, which connects to the Atlantic Ocean, 'God's Country', open floorplan with tropical colors, plenty of room for large family gatherings

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Escaping reality, enjoying nature at its best!! Private sandy beach...Water view from most rooms...being near so many awesome restaurants, coastal points of interest, Cape Lookout, Beaufort, Harkers Island, the Ocracoke ferry, the NC Aquarium, the Atlantic Ocean, etc etc etc!
