What an opportunity for any avid fisherman! It just looks like a fun place to hang your waders out to dry, fry up the day's catch, and get a good night's sleep before discovering what's biting again the next day. This is a basic cottage with a garage and carport area to house the boats. It is conveniently located near the Hatteras marinas and the ferry dock.
The house was originally used as a duplex, is still noted as a duplex with Dare County, and is located in the C-2H General Commercial District which allows for many uses. One of the kitchens now houses a refrigerator and washer and dryer and the dividing door between the living rooms has been removed, making this live like a single family property, but a little vision and remodel would have this running as a duplex once again. Windows and fiber cement siding were replaced in 2004. The long time owner notes that the home is older than 1976 (as noted by Dare County) and also says that it has never flooded since their ownership beginning it the late 1960's.
Dare County does not have records concerning the two septic systems said to be on the property, except for a Certificate of Completion in 1995 when the carport area was added to the big boat shed. Call the agent to discuss the possibilities and make it a point to come and see this for yourself.
