What a truly Unique Estate on Historic Roanoke Island! Nestled just outside the Town of Manteo Historic District on just over a half acre, this property has elegant island style. Built in 2007, Collinswood, the main house, boasts a circular drive cascaded by Crepe Myrtles and Pampas grass for privacy, a large gated side yard with room for a garage with loft living. There is a wraparound veranda replete with furniture inviting you to sit a spell and while away the hours with a Mint julep in one hand and a good ole Outer Banks storm mystery in the other.
Once inside, it quickly becomes clear how well maintained this home is and the great care that the owners took in designing/furnishing it and fortunately, the furnishings convey. Accented with 9’ ceilings and red wood flooring throughout the lower level, this home lives large with Anderson French doors in every room leading to the decks on the first level. The Gourmet kitchen will have you anxiously planning your next meal! Custom cabinetry, granite countertops, wine fridge and more makes the open concept kitchen the centerpiece of the home.
The downstairs master has a custom bath with walk-in shower and connects to another room that can be used as a bedroom or a library/sitting room. There are 2 upstairs bedrooms that share a custom Jack and Jill bath with walk-in shower and a claw foot tub. There is a large second floor loft and additional space that can be used as an office. What’s more is there are laundry facilities on both floors.
Escape the pesky summer bugs on the roomy all season screened porch with family and a glass of sweet Carolina iced tea or hang out on the porch on a cool Fall or Winter evening and enjoy cider or hot cocoa in front of the fireplace! There are 2 additional parking pads on the other side of the house lined with oleander shrubs and an entry gate leading to a courtyard style yard and meandering path to the rear cottage aptly named, Eagle’s Nest. This sweet townhouse style cottage has Canadian maple flooring downstairs, 9’ ceilings and a custom kitchen that leads to a private screened porch with newly installed ceiling fans. Enjoy this private setting on a lazy, quiet Sunday afternoon just listening to the sounds of nature!
This Grand property can be used as a primary residence with in-law quarters or space for guests/extended family, a second home with year-round tenant living to keep an eye on things OR as a sound rental investment. It may be possible to annex this awesome estate into the Town of Manteo limits and convert it to a Bed & Breakfast…Oh, the possibilities! There is a community boat ramp and the neighborhood park with picnic facilities/bathrooms, children’s playground and The Historic Pea Island Cookhouse Museum and roundabout are a stone’s throw away.
