Skyco, the center of the Roanoke Island and the Outer Banks. The setting offers plenty of privacy, but is located minutes from the beaches. Public trails connect the property to the Coastal Studies Institute to the south and tranquil downtown Manteo to the north. There is access to the Croatan Sound at the end of Skyco Road.
This gem of a cottages sits on a ridge. From the front porch that looks west one can view the setting sun and surrounding marsh. Interior details set the cottage apart from the others; granite counters, 9' ceilings with 12' vaulted ceilings in the living room, double hung windows, interior and exterior transoms above doorways, rich trim, cypress wainscoting, double vanities in the master bath, and numerous other finishes. The exterior siding consist of lap and board and batten and is a combination of materials.
The house is raised on pile with parking underneath with enclosed storage and a dry entry. One is able to enclose the remaining ground floor for a garage, storage, workshop, or other space. The pull down stairs provide easy access to the large attic space. Escape the hustle and bustle of beach traffic and living, visit the beach, but return to Roanoke Island to wash the sand and salt water off and relax in peace.
As a bonus, the seafood markets and restaurants in nearby Wanchese offer the freshest seafood on the Outer Banks.
