Semi-Oceanfront, Privacy, AND over $112,000 in advertised rentals this year! A completely-reconstructed (and raised!) private road traverses the estuary. At the end, with direct beach access, the splendid semi-oceanfront home “Solitude” earns its name, commanding unobstructed views in all 4 directions. Surrounded on one side by a sheltering dune and the Ocean, and on three sides by protected Wetlands, every East-facing room commands up-close sunrise deck views of the Atlantic, while every West-facing room (even the kitchen!) hosts its own balcony gazing over the nature preserve to sunset on Pamlico Sound beyond. In just 2 years, the current owner has transformed and optimized this custom-built, 2200 SqFt, 5 bedroom (plus bunk room), 3.5 bath masterpiece into both an Owner’s Paradise and a Vacation Rental Machine, ensuring the house and road are shielded from harm while more than doubling rental income. This home brings friends and generations together: Your guests will raise their glasses with joy as sumptuous aromas waft from the outdoor kitchen, grill, and bar on the panorama deck, or just inside where the spacious open-plan kitchen/dining room/living room (and even a breakfast nook) draws guests to views in all directions. However, Master Suites on both the 2nd AND 3rd levels, 2nd-deck hot tub with two additional adjoining bedrooms, 1st-level wet bar/kitchenette flanking a gameroom and two more bedrooms, hammocks galore, and a large yard (Yes! an enclosed yard new constructed —at the beach!) give everyone as much SOLITUDE as they wish. Solitude is well-protected against the elements: not only is it elevated high enough that driveway, dry entry, and ground level stay above even the highest water levels and guarded by one of the best-reconstructed dunes in the area, but the owner’s road-construction methods—cutting-edge in the wake of Hurricane Michael (2018) are rapidly becoming industry standard throughout Cape Hatteras for their longevity and stability. You will have only one difficult choice with SOLITUDE—share it with friends, or keep it all to yourself!
