Situated on a quiet street, in a grove of live oak trees, is this immaculate home at 14 6th St. in Southern Shores. This exceptionally maintained one-owner custom home must be seen up close to be appreciated. It is neat as a pin, and the attention to detail is superb. It has been lovingly taken care of by the current owners, and every detail is perfect.
While it is still winter, it does not take much to imagine the privacy afforded by the live oak trees once they leaf out with new growth. The gracefully arching branches create a unique under-story around the house with benches to relax and enjoy the shade or to just meander through the curving branches.
The exterior of the home is low maintenance with insect-resistant cedar and a recent warm-colored stain. The next thing you notice is the multitude of decks and even a widow’s walk to catch the ocean view. The home has a brand new hot tub for this season and a large private pool. It is no wonder the 2017 rental season is fully booked with only one week available during the season. It is a favorite with guests and has large percentage of repeat rentals.
The spacious carport includes a built-in shaded kennel, outside showers and extra storage. Pool and beach items can be stored in the spacious wooden boxes that blend in perfectly with the home but keep any clutter out of sight. The lower level also has a workshop area and plenty of additional storage.
The custom design creates tons of usable deck space on both the middle and upper levels. There is access to the decks from 4 of the bedrooms to create a private retreat or to curl up with a good book.
The interior design creates an immensely comfortable flow for year-round living but is also ideal for a vacation rental home with 3 master suites. The middle level includes 4 of the bedrooms and a convenient laundry area.
The top level is where the drama happens. It includes an open-concept area for the living room, dining room and kitchen. This space is ideal for entertaining large groups while also still being intimate when it is just the family relaxing, enjoying a meal or watching TV.
There is even a screened-in porch off the dining room with a picnic table just waiting for newspapers and the crabs for a feast. The large main deck off the living room has plenty of room to grill and to relax with a cool beverage next to the canopy of trees.
Steps to the rear of the deck will take you to the pool and hot tub area to quickly rejoin the fun in the water.
The gas fireplace in the entertainment wall provides added warmth and ambiance on cool winter nights to encourage rentals into the off-season and to snuggle with your significant other.
The generous and well-placed windows provide light and air into the space through every season.
The kitchen is thoughtfully laid out with plenty of cabinets and a floor plan with the cook in mind. Family and guests can chat with the chef at the breakfast nook or bar area and still join in the conversation from the living room and dining area.
There is a lot of storage space, which is very unusual for Outer Banks homes, typically designed as vacation homes. There are many custom-built wood storage bins throughout the home and outside to conceal necessities but keep them readily accessible.
The collection of wood deck furniture keeps a consistent style from the pool area to the decks. These pieces are sturdy and comfortable and just suit the house.
This home is tastefully decorated in a neutral color palette and is offered fully furnished. A new owner can easily imprint his or her personal style by just changing out some accessories and linens for added impact.
The home is 165 yards to the private beach access at the end of this inviting street. All beaches in Southern Shores are limited to residents and guests, so the beaches do not become overcrowded in the summer months.
The Outer Banks is a premier vacation destination. This home is located in the Sea Crest Village portion of Southern Shores. Located in the Northeast section of Southern Shores, this area is known for the quiet cul-de-sacs, easy beach access and wonderful, uncrowded beaches.
The community of Southern Shores is the first community when you enter the Outer Banks from route 12 and head north. It stretches from the soundfront to the oceanfront, with amenities throughout.
There are several marinas with dockage available. You can spend the day crabbing with the kids. This unique community is ideal for boating enthusiasts with canals woven through the community and access to the Currituck Sound and Albemarle Sound.
Duck Woods Country Club is located within the community for a day of golf without having to travel far. There are tennis courts, parks, and private ocean and soundfront parking areas. The best part is there is no mandated homeowners association for the amenities. You may pick and choose if you want to be a member of the separate amenities. This keeps property owner costs low and allows for an active and engaged membership of the separate HOAs. As an example, the soundfront and beachfront parking pass is $55 per year.
This 5BR immaculate home will not last long at $599,000! Take ownership now and enjoy peace of mind with the rental weeks already reserved for most of the summer. Hurry, so you can block off a week to enjoy with your family and friends.
