In the summer, the Beachcomber Museum which is across the street is often open on Thursdays and Fridays. This is an amazing collection of "treasures" gathered from the beach over the lifetime of Nellie Myrtle Pridgen. You can check out the museum on facebook or visit their website,


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1968

About the owner: I am the 5th generation in our family to enjoy cherished summers at Nags Head. From babies splashing in the surf to celebrating 90th birthdays, we have made many family memories here. We bought this house when it became available as our extended family was outgrowing our original family home.

Why the Owner Chose Nags Head, NC, USA:
Nags Head's pristine coastline is right out of the front door. Whether you wake to see the sunrise over the Atlantic or linger in rocking chairs watching the sunset over Jockey's Ridge, you'll love enjoying this beautiful part of the world.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The "Unpainted Aristocracy" as this area is known as consists of approximately 40 houses built in the late 1800's to early 1900's. The ocean breezes, sound of the surf and laid back lifestyle will instantly relax you. Much of our house remains original but with updates to make life comfortable. Most of our current renters have been enjoying our house for the past 20 plus years. Some have even passed down "their" time to the next generation. We hope you'll make our beloved house part of your family history too!
