Property description

Our 3BR/1BA beach cottage is nestled into an uncluttered corner of Frisco's cozy Brigand's Bay. Two of the bedrooms have sliding glass doors that open onto a screened-in back porch that overlooks an undeveloped salt-water marsh with a peripheral view of the Pamilco Sound. Each of these bedrooms have queen-sized beds, chest-of-drawers w/mirrors, and closets. In the remaining bedroom is a top-twin/full-bottom bunk bed, also with chest-of-drawers and closet. Fresh colors and clean furniture, berber carpet, and central-air throughout, our property also has a recently renovated and expanded kitchen and dining area. Other amenities include cable TV, high-speed Internet access, phone, and washer-dryer combination unit. In addition to the screened-in back porch, the front of the house has a sundeck and a short lower-deck (both equipped w/Adirondack chairs), a boardwalk leading to comfortable canal-front benches w/table on the edge of a bulkhead. A pivoting marine ladder provides direct access to boarding canoes/kayaks/small craft up to 22ft. An outdoor shower helps keep everyone and thing free of sand while a charcoal grill makes sure the fish & steaks have the right flavor.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1981

About: We are a (grand)mother-son team from Kent, Ohio who have always retreated to the Outer Banks since the early 1970s. Patricia Miller, the owner, was a 3rd-grade school teacher for 30 years, then the administrator of a foster care & adoption agency for 11 years. Daniel Miller, the son, is a former librarian, now PhD student in the English department of Kent State University, and father to Henry & Isabel, the next generation of Hatteras Island enthusiasts.

Why Brigands Bay, Frisco, NC, USA:
Having traveled all over the country for many summers, it became apparent no place suited the Millers like OBX. After purchasing the lot in 1981, the house was built largely by husband/father, Dennis, in 1982. It was always meant to be a place for our family to spend time together, to experience the beauty of the area, and to enjoy life.
