About the property

Serenity is a home that provides beautiful views of the Albemarle sound in a private setting. The home is second row waterfront. Water access is directly in front of the home and there is a boat ramp in the neighborhood. The water is usually 4-5 feet deep, depending on the tide, and is a sandy bottom.

Sit in a rocking chair and enjoy the views from the porch, walk to the water for a swim, or take a drive to several nearby towns including historical Edenton and the Outer Banks. This is the perfect home to relax.

About Kari Cahoon

My husband was born and raised on the Albemarle sound. I moved here after I graduated from college and never left. We love this area. We love everything outdoors and we love the water.

Kari Cahoon purchased this house in 2015

Why Kari Cahoon chose Roper

This house is very special. My mother always loved the water so my dad built this second home for her so she could sit in a rocking chair on the porch and enjoy the beautiful views of the Albemarle sound. The house was finished in January 2012 and sadly she passed away in July. My mom named the house Serenity. This was going to be her get away. Now it will be a get away for many to enjoy and she would love that!

What makes this house unique

All doors are wheelchair accessible though there is not ramp into the house.

Peaceful, Serene and beautifully appointed

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son and I throughly enjoyed our stay! We have family nearby and when not visiting with them, this home was the perfect retreat-room sizes and Floorplan is perfect for modern living. We will be returning in the summer and look forward to relaxing on the front porch and taking in the amazing Water vistas.
