Enjoy one of the best locations in Southern Shores, the coveted North Dogwood Trail, one of the most private and peaceful settings on the Outer Banks. The trees are magnificent forming a canopy over the "no through" road with plenty of wildlife. This "one of a kind" 5 Bedroom(owners use 5th bedroom as a game room) CANALFRONT COMPOUND is situated on a bluff within 1.63 acres of maritime forest complete with private pool and easy boat ride to the sound. The original home was built in 1973, but the effective age is much newer.
The house was completely remodeled and expanded by previous owner. When you start the drive up the long secluded driveway the stress starts to fade as you arrive to a private wooded retreat surrounded by nature. If you want to be away from the hustle and bustle of summer traffic, but a few minutes walk to the beach or drive to Walmart, Starbucks and Harris Teeter, this sacred spot is for you. Walk into a grand two-story entry, with lots of natural light and adjacent to the living room boasting a tray ceiling, ambience lighting, custom bookcases/cabinetry, stunning wet bar with mirror and back lighting, and wood burning fireplace.
Just off the living room is a an ensuite bedroom with private bath, fireplace, and private access to covered deck. Also on the main level is the gorgeous spacious dining room with custom shelving, chef's kitchen, laundry room, and powder bath. The chef's kitchen features stainless steel appliances, gas range/oven, granite countertops, tile backsplash, lots of cabinets for plenty of storage, huge walk-in pantry, breakfast area surrounded by windows, and 2nd staircase leading to ground level and one car garage. Both the dining room and kitchen have private access to the mid-level deck perfect for entertaining.
The upstairs has 3 master suites, and loft area that looks over the main entry, and walk in attic storage. The 2nd master bedroom has high ceilings, private access to covered deck overlooking the pool and the canal, the private bath has a jetted tub and separate tile/steam shower. The 3rd ensuite bedroom has tons of character with a wall of windows, beamed ceiling and private bath. It doesn't end there, the ground level offers EVEN MORE!
This floor has a 5th bedroom that's currently being used as a pool room, a game room, bar area, media room with stone fireplace, and french doors leading to the outdoor bar and private pool. The inside bar area has a prep sink and wine cooler. More wall of windows provides lots of light and great space that the current owner uses for a shuffleboard table, and then the cozy TV room with projection TV. The Separate Cape Cod Building with front porch overlooks the woods and canal.
The prior owner envisioned a separate apartment (in-law suite), but is currently being used an enormous worksop and storage area. Just Imagine the possibilities for the semi-soundfront estate. It's a must see if you are looking for your own oasis on North Dogwood Trail. Furnishings are negotiable.
