This beautiful Craftsman's style home was originally built by a highly respected general contractor as his personal residence, the home was quality built and remains rock solid! When there are storms you can't even hear the wind inside of the home. The home sits on one of the best lots in Southern Shores atop a high sandy ridge in the maritime forest providing a very high elevation, gorgeous unobstructed views...a 400 yr old oak tree providing wonderful shade and a setting like no other. The canal front lot offers a Trex deck the entire length of the property, a 10,000 lb boat lift and 3-4 Ft of water allowing easy access to open water along for about any size boat.
A gravel driveway along the side of the property allows access to the backyard down to the waterfront by vehicle.

The sellers had plans drawn up to finish the downstairs and they are available to new owners.

The home offers outside living and has plenty of decking for sunning with a view. The large Oak Tree keeps the pool cold throughout the summer which is refreshing on a hot day.
During storms we have never lost power and power lines in Southern Shores are buried.
This home is extremely well built. The seller has even designed custom sun loungers and had them built, you will not need to move outdoor furniture if a storm comes. The property is very well protected being in the location it is from storms.
