The Town of Emerald Isle lies on Bogue Banks, the southernmost island of the North Carolina Outer Banks. Our home is located at the secluded western end of the island known as 'The Point'.
It is a 4-bedroom, 3.5 bath home on a corner lot. with wood, tile and carpeted floors, Anderson windows, four Covered Decks (2 upper decks with Porch Furnishings, front lower deck with 2 porch swings). Directv with high speed internet access.
The double carport on the ground level is deep enough to accommodate four cars. On the rear of the home, under the lower deck, there is a tiled patio with a swing and patio furnishings, and 4-burner gas grille. It is a great place to relax while watching others play 'kick-the-can' or while preparing the 'daily catch' on the grille. Adjacent to the patio is a private, enclosed hot/cold shower with an enclosed changing area. After a day at the beach, this is a stop that shouldn't be missed.
At the front of the lower level, the door opens to the entryway, with french doors left and right leading to identical master bedrooms. Each has a king bed, a full bath, a huge walk-in closet, a TV and Roku. Each is ideal for a peaceful getaway after a busy day or simply for a peaceful nighttime's sleep. Beyond the entryway, though another set of french doors, is a sizable 20' X 14' living area with 52' LCD SONY TV and Roku. A third bedroom has a queen bed, double closet and a Intelligent TV. A fourth bedroom has 2 twin beds, a double closet and a TV and DVD player. These two bedrooms share a tiled bath across from which is the laundry area with a washer and new dryer. The cabinets include cleaning products and light bulbs.
Blankets and additional pillows are supplied in each bedroom.
One of the main attractions is the upper level with its open floor plan. Vacations are for gatherings and conversations and laughs and this accepts everybody to share some time together. At the top of the stairs is a dining table that seats eight. Across the room is a very well-equipped kitchen and pantry separated from the 8 seat square dining table by a breakfast bar and eight bar chairs. For those who have been guests before, you will recognize this as the site of our annual 'pancake eating contest'.
The kitchen has a Keirug and Mr. Coffee maker, crock pot, enormous pot for low country boil, many serving dishes and tons of silverware and cookware, electric grille pan, blender, and old-fashioned milkshake blender, toaster oven with air fryer, waffle iron, electric mixer, tea kettle, spices and herbs, mini refrigerator in the pantry, placemats, microwave, and a double oven.
In the front of the room is a sitting area with couch and chairs that surround a tiled fireplace with gas logs (it is not useable), a 47' LCD SONY TV and Roku. Surround-sound stereophonic equipment with iPhone connection completes the set-up. On the front, sliding glass doors open onto a covered deck with porch furnishings. It is from here that the spectacular vistas of sunrises and sunsets and the sweeping picture of ocean and inlet makes this one of my favorite spots.
Another set of sliding glass doors open onto the back covered deck, also equipped with porch furnishings. This is a particularly quit spot, protected from the ocean breeze, with vistas of the sound. We have taken advantage of this for a number of peaceful, calming 'dinners under the stars'. Each deck is equipped with a table with 4 surrounding chairs for outside dining.
There is a choice of access to the beaches. Go left to the walkway that will take you over the dunes or go right to the broad expanse of 'The Point'. Either way, you have open space enough for picnics, games and even a touch of solitude.
Keywords: Second row home; corner lot, four peaceful bedrooms on 1st floor with central family den, roomy well-equipped kitchen and dining area on 2nd floor with open floor plan for great vacation get-together.
