The dream of owning an Outer Banks Vacation Home is shared by many people. Once you start vacationing on these barrier islands, the land becomes part of your soul and only grows year after year. There is just a totally different vibe that comes with OBX compared to other beach destinations like Cape Cod, the Hamptons, or the Jersey Shore that people just love.
There is also the perception that the Outer Banks Real Estate Market is beyond the reach of the non-mega wealthy. Perception is not reality, however. Today there are more opportunities than ever before for regular families to purchase that dream beach house.
Here is a list of the Top Three new construction communities for you to consider when you are ready to purchase your vacation home along the Outer Banks:
Beacon Villas, Corolla
The newest addition to the Corolla Light Resort Village, Beacon Villas are deluxe duplex style townhomes located on the Oceanside of Rt. 12. Each townhome is almost 2500 sq. ft. and includes four bedrooms and four and a half baths. They are also sold fully furnished with two distinct floorplans to choose from.
As an owner in Beacon Villas, you will become part of the multiple winning North Carolina’s Resort of the Year Award – Corolla Light Resort Village. Members of the resort have access to the following amenities included with ownership:
- Seven Swimming Pools
- Children’s Playground
- Basketball, Shuffleboard, Volleyball, and Tennis Courts
- Oceanfront Grille Restaurant
- Poolside Snackbar
- Trolley Service
- Sports Center
- Nature and Walking Trails
- Soundfront Pier and Gazebo
Beacon Villas is right in the middle of all of the best tourist attractions Corolla has to offer. Shopping and restaurants are just a stone’s throw away along with the Whalehead Club, Currituck Beach Lighthouse and the famous Corolla Wild Horses. But even if you just want to experience everything the resort has to offer, the Corolla Light Trolley will transport you and your family to all of the resort facilities as well as to the beach. Sure beats dragging all of your supplies to the sand yourself right?
Devonshire Place – Bermuda Bay, Kill Devil Hills
Whether you are looking for a permanent home, 2nd home, or vacation rental investment property, Bermuda Bay has what you are looking for. The community is located on the soundside of Rt. 12 in Kill Devil Hills within walking distance of beaches, shopping, restaurants, schools, and historical landmarks like the Wright Brothers Memorial.
Bermuda Bay is divided into three villages each with their own individual property styles. Cambridge Cove is a townhome Community, Hamilton Cay is a condominium community, and Devonshire Place is a single family community.
All three villages are designed in bright colors to give the feel of tropical islands with ponds and lush landscaping throughout. Centrally located in the heart of the resort is Elbow Beach Clubhouse and Recreation Area. Each village has access to the facilities there including swimming pool with water slide, volleyball court, and fitness center with pool table. Plus, when you decide that the OBX life needs to be your full time reality, there is an Elementary, Middle, and High School all within walking distance of the community. What better place is there to raise a family than at the beach?
Villas at Corolla Bay, Corolla
One of the best deals anywhere on the Outer Banks, The Villas at Corolla Bay are single family homes that are affordable to almost anyone. Located on the Oceanside of Rt. 12 in Corolla, the community is within easy walking distance of the beach and just steps away from the sound.
Each four bedroom, three and a half bath home is designed with a reverse floorplan to maximize the amazing views of Corolla. They are also tastefully designed to evoke memories of seaside communities of the past with batten board gables, large decks, shuttered windows and painted trimwork.
What really sets this community apart, besides the price, is the custom courtyard that comes with every home. Every property has a designated fenced in private outdoor space perfect for your own swimming pool, hot tub, or deluxe barbecue stations.
Corolla Bay also includes a central recreation area with a swimming pool, bath house, picnic areas, horseshoe pit, basketball court, and shuffleboard. But you better act quickly with 40 Villas already sold out of 57 in the development.
