Drone and other photos to be added. The cottage was originally built in 1958 during the halcyon era of the Outer Banks. The cottage’s architecture is a classic example of function over form, yet beautiful in its simplicity. The current owner has recently completed meticulous updates of the cottage with too many improvements to list. Not only are the improvements designed to allow the cottage to withstand the ever changing conditions of the Outer Banks, they also include the practical touches that add unparalleled comfort and convenience to the owner and his/her/they guest. Situated for summertime southwest exposure and prevailing ocean breezes, the cottage is wrapped in first and second floor porches with additional more intimate porch nooks so friends and family can sit and savor the splendor of the sea, sunrise and sunset. The new foundation’s round piles (2020) mirror those of the local fishing piers and are built to withstand the unknowns of the Atlantic. On the porches, dyneema carbon fiber cable railing is used to provide unobstructed views of the sea, yet its function and strength is unparalleled. It is typically used in sailboat rigging. The owner with his nautical background has only used the best and highest quality materials in the exterior and interior renovations and no detail is overlooked. The renovations are done in the manner that exceeds expectations. Entering through faux teak exterior doors, one will observe the rich interior renovations. The interior materials: juniper, knotty pine, cedar and other indigenous materials provide the inhabitants with a warmth, comfort, and glow not found in today’s ‘sheetrock’ cottages. From the first floor oceanfront living room and kitchen new windows provide panoramic views of the Atlantic. There are two bedrooms and one bath on the first floor with a breeze way connecting to the new laundry/service area. Accessing the second floor from a work of art custom exterior circular staircase or the interior stairs, there are two additional bedrooms, covered decks, and a undercabinet yacht style kitchenette with a Sub-Zero Drawer Refrigerator and Miele Speed Convection Oven. A convenient spot to grab a morning coffee and head to the oceanfront upper porch accessed from the primary bedroom. Most all of the period furniture, antiques, custom teak furniture built by the owner, Persian rugs, and original artwork convey with the cottage. Much of the mechanical (electrical, plumbing and HVAC) was updated in 2020. And the ocean...a new elevated walkway leads you to a dune deck with classic Nags Head bench seating, hammocks and an outdoor rinse. From there take the sandy path through the native grasses to the beach and enjoy your backyard. After a big day of surf and exploring, relax in the large private jacuzzi. There is also a detached studio outbuilding that has been completely remodeled, new foundation, and finished inside with no HVAC. It measures 105 sf. The cottage is in the heart of the town and is located close to all popular vacation destinations as well as shopping, groceries, restaurants, and all outdoor activities. Purchase this classic cottage, and return to the casual, peaceful summer life that defines the allure of the time-honored architecture of the ‘unpainted aristocracy’.
