Property description

Graley Cottage exudes all the charm of a classic beach cottage from the 50’s but has been renovated and beautifully furnished to include all the modern conveniences. Graley Cottage is an oceanfront house (just a short walk from the deck over the gentle dunes to the beach and surf) in a quiet family neighborhood on a cul-de-sac on Club Colony Drive in Atlantic Beach. It features 6 bedrooms (including two separate master suites), 5 & ½ baths, 2 separate family/tv areas (great for when the kids want to watch their own movies), a spacious oceanfront family room and adjoining spacious dining room for your family gatherings, and a fabulous deck for enjoying the dunes and ocean views.

The cottage is equipped with high speed internet (Road Runner), wireless internet, unlimited telephone calls within the US and Canada, two DVD players, Cable TV service, a 42 inch flat screen HD TV in the first floor family room and a 32 inch flat screen TV in the upstairs family room and a small flat screen tv on the kitchen bar that is perfect for entertaining kids having their breakfast, etc. Each of the master bedrooms have a 10 inch tablet for your convenience which is equipped with TWC and Netflix. There is a travel size DVD player with screen in black case in sitting room which is great for watching cildren's DVD's. There is ample outdoor parking for up to 6 cars plus 1 car in garage.

The first floor exterior features a large covered beach side porch and sun deck with dining table, dining chairs and rocking chairs perfect for enjoying that first cup of coffee in the morning, for watching boats and dolphins go by, for relaxing sunset dinners or late night cocktails. While you are relaxing on the deck, the kids can play in the swing or hammock below. The first floor exterior also features a covered street side porch perfect for just hanging out in the rocking chairs. Both beach side and street side porches are connected by a lovely wraparound deck.

The interior first floor consists of the spacious family room and master bedroom (with a Queen bed and ensuite bath with tub & shower) both overlooking the beach, two additional bedrooms (each with a Queen bed) that share a full bath with walk-in shower, another smaller study/bedroom with a twin bed and a nearby full bath with tub & shower, a beautiful fully-equipped kitchen with custom made cabinetry and granite counter tops which opens to a wonderful dining room.

The second floor features a second master bedroom with a queen bed, ensuite bath with walk-in shower, and walk-in closet, a second bedroom with two double beds (and a fold out twin & twin air mattress in the closet) and a nearby full bath with a tub & shower, and a second family room perfect for kids to hang out and play or watch tv. This room is stocked with toys, books, games and DVD’s to entertain the kids.

The street level features a utility room with washer/dryer,a half bath, a second refrigerator/freezer, a gas grill, a large storage area with beach toys, beach chairs, umbrellas, a kayak, a long board, boogie boards, fishing rods and related beach gear, and two indoor showers and one outside shower (good for post beach showers).

In short, Graley Cottage is the perfect place for family fun where you can enjoy all the ocean has to offer from just a shells throw from the surf. You will want to return every year.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1956

About the owner: Graley Cottage has been owned by the same family since it was purchased in the 1950’s by our grandparents, Staley and Grace Cook of Burlington, NC (hence the name “Graley”). It was lovingly renovated and expanded by our Mom, Nancy Cook Moore, also of Burlington, NC in 2006. Mom left it to her children to enjoy and preserve for generations to come. We consider it a little bit of heaven on earth and hope you will too!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Four generations of our family have enjoyed vacations at Graley Cottage. Whether it is fishing, shell hunting, surfing, exploring Fort Macon, jogging on the beach, reading in the hammock, or hanging out on the sun deck with family and friends, we think there is no place like Graley Cottage.
