Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We are full time Ocracoke Island Residents for 20 years. Fell in love with the island in the mid 70's and ended up here running our own business and as it seems collecting historic buildings and trying to save their character and charm to go with the vibe of the island.

Why the Owner Chose Ocracoke, NC, USA:
This small summer cottage was the sister property to our old Ocracoke home and there it sat out our backdoor for 10 plus years with no one to care for and protect its uniqueness. So, we took it into our family compound and wow what a challenge. Now it has been completely restored following the National Register Standards and is a valuable example of the mid-century architectural stlye found here on Ocracoke in the early 50's.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This small cottage on a large lot sits just across the marsh with an exspansive view of the Ocracoke Lighthouse.
