The Four Seasons in Duck is one of the Outstanding Resort communities in the Outer Banks. In 2011, it was awarded the “Resort Community of the Year” from the NC Chapter of Community Association Institute. It is an honor to have such recognition by your peers.
Located in the southern portion of Duck, it is one of the most recognizable communities. The Ocean to Sound community is gated; but even the outer perimeter of the community shows the observer the unique character of the development. It is designed to pay homage to the Coastal Carolina Style of architecture. This style includes the “painted aristocracy” of Old Nags Head, the style of the Federal Lifesaving Stations that doted our coast as well as the Low Country style. Features from American Arts and Crafts Style of shingle houses are also apparent.
The Four Seasons in Duck, NC began in 1999 with the goal of being the Outer Banks premier residential beach community and to support superior property valuations for all their owners. The community has lived up to its goal. Once inside the gate, the visitor is welcomed by tree lined streets with sidewalks and two walking paths to the oceanfront access. The layout of the home sites, streets and amenities create a calm and relaxing ascetic befitting of a resort community.
