Historic Buchanan House on the Outer Banks Is Sold

Bob Oakes, president of Village Realty, is pleased to announce that the historic Nags Head oceanfront home known as The Buchanan Cottage sold this week to a prominent eastern North Carolina family after being in the Buchanan family for 76 years.
Built in 1936, the Buchanan Cottage stands as one of the most photographed and written about oceanfront homes on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The home exemplifies the old Nags Head architectural style, featuring the distinctive L-shape design and wraparound porches. The family hosted President Franklin Delano Roosevelt there in 1937.

Village Realty could not be more thrilled that the buyer is an eastern North Carolina family who will cherish the historical significance of this grand old home.
