If you are considering a move to the island or a second home, you must include this fortress of a home in Buxton on your showing list. The home is nestled in the trees and off the beaten path on an acre sized lot. Unlike most homes that are built on pilings here, this house has a fully enclosed lower level garage, workshop and storage area built within this solid block and concrete foundation that measures 1719 square feet (unfinished). A portion of the garage level has been framed out to include a partially finished game room.
The main entrance opens to an impressive foyer with stairs leading to a big sitting room in between the two master suites. The upstairs bedrooms have walk-in closets so big one is even home to a double bed for extra overnight guests. The main level has french doors leading from the foyer to the living room. The kitchen was updated a few years ago and it is open to the dining area.
A half bath and a laundry room/pantry are just off the kitchen as well. The main level has been remodeled to also include a studio apartment on one side of the home that is accessed from the back deck (or through the interior laundry room), which has its own kitchen, stack washer/dryer and full bath. This unique home in Buxton Woods offers an opportunity to bring the in-laws along, consider a tenant to occupy the studio apartment to keep an eye on things when you are off island, or rent out an AirBnB apartment. It would also be an easy conversion to open the apartment space back up to the remainder of the house so that it lives as a 3 bedroom 3.5 bath home.
This location in Buxton Woods is just beyond Hatteras Pines subdivision and is close to the island schools and back roads to the Lighthouse and access ramps to the beach.
