1 1/2 blocks from house!

Car: Necessary

Located at milepost 6, Avalon Limin' is an easy block and a half from the beach! The Avalon Pier is right next to the house's beach access, and there are several restaurants within walking distance. Tucked on a quiet street, the local movie theater is less than a mile away...and the Wright Brother's Memorial Museum is just down the road about 2 miles. Very convenient to the best that the Outer Banks has to offer.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: I'm a regular soccer mom with a grown up college graduated daughter who works and lives nearby, and 9 year old at the local elementary school. I grew up in Madison, WI, and have lived in a variety of places in my adult life....most recently moving here from St. John, USVI. We swim, paddle board, surf, bike, run and will knock each other out of the way to get to a treasured piece of sea glass. I rehab houses, sell real estate and manage hotels for a living. I'm currently working on training my two Newfoundlands so that they can get their therapy dog certifications. Some days they listen, some days they eat my lunch when I'm not looking. They love the beach as much as the rest of us.

Why the Owner Chose Kill Devil Hills, NC, USA:
When my daughter began college in Boston, I decided my son and I should move back to the states and be somewhere on the east coast so that we could more easily get together for holidays and family time. So...I bought a car and just started driving up and down the coast until I found a spot that had the right vibe. Yes, really. The natural beauty of the Outer Banks, the warmness of the locals here, and the lack of high rise buildings on the beach sold me. Somewhere along the way, I decided that I only wanted to live in amazing places that people want to vacation in. It was really important to me that I be able to get to the beach without getting in my car. I was also important to me to be close enough to modern conveniences (gas station/grocery store/highway) without having to see or hear them. This little cottage, under the siding, is one of the 1950's concrete block flat topped houses you'll see in this neighborhood. She's solid and sturdy (a little like me I suppose), and seen her share of storms. I'm all about the character and quality of older homes, and making them shine in their best light.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house has some benefits you don't find easily here in the Outer Banks. First of all, it's on the ground! No steps means no hauling luggage, groceries, or beach gear up and down multiple times during your stay. It also has a completely fenced in back yard, which makes it safer for small children and more private for the whole family. It's the perfect size and price point for folks who don't necessarily want to vacation in a 10 bedroom house with a large group of people. Because the house is concrete and on a side street, it's much quieter than most of it's counterparts. I live in this house during the off season, so I think you'll find it far more updated and well thought out than most beach cottages.
