Presenting an exciting opportunity for those dreaming of living at the beach while running their own business. Let your imagination run wild with the possibilities while I "walk" you through this unique property! If you've driven through Buxton on Hatteras Island, you've undoubtedly encountered, been a patron of or taken notice of "The Elegant Attic", famous for their inventory of antique stained glass windows. The original structure on this property is a brick rancher built circa 1965.
The owner then relocated and remodeled an early 1900's home (reportedly built from the boards of wooden ships) to the property and transformed it into the antique store. The two structures were connected by another addition angled to allow a majestic oak to continue growing on the property (Sadly, this mighty oak was mostly lost during Hurricane Dorian). There is approximately 1450 square feet of retail space including a public restroom. The original brick home includes 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths, one of which is attached to the largest of the bedrooms.
The master bedroom and living room have beautiful views of the sound and small harbor and access to a deck. There is a gas fireplace in the living room and the appliances in the kitchen have been recently replaced. The seller has transformed many of the rooms of the residence into showrooms and offers tours of the private areas of the home to patrons of the store. There is a shallow well and pump used for watering the numerous flower gardens.
As if all of that wasn't enticing enough, there is more to love about this property. This listing is comprised of 2 parcels that offer a combined 2.25 acres. The residence and retail shop are situated on Lot 1 with highway frontage along NC 12 a concrete driveway and retail parking. Lot 2 is over 73,000 square feet that features highlands currently in the "X" zone, salt marsh, a canal and the soundfront.
