Buying In Southern Shores

Southern Shores has been the premiere address on the Outer Banks since the 1960s. The original homes were no frills flat tops on the oceanfront, some of which are still around today. At the same time, snow birds and retirees were building their homes on the soundside. Today Dogwood Trail boasts many of the finest soundfront and canalfront homes on the Outer Banks. Some older homes come on the market from time to time, offering a great opportunity to own a home in this prime location. Duck Woods Country Club is also located on Dogwood Trail, and is a popular gathering space for many local residents and second home owners. Chicahauk is another west side community, but closer to the ocean and so with more of a mix of vacation rentals, second homes and year-round residents.

The numbered avenues on the oceanside of Southern Shores are known as Seacrest Village. These oceanside homes boast an easy walk to the beach with very little traffic to worry about. These homes can be a great value, and they are one of the best kept secrets in the area. It's also a short walk into Duck for drinks, dinner or events on the Town Green.

The oceanfront homes of Southern Shores are located on Ocean Boulevard. At the "Triangle" the road splits, with Route 12 continuing north on Duck Road, while Ocean Boulevard becomes a quiet neighborhood street. Look for "almost oceanfront" homes north of 144 Ocean Boulevard to take advantage of this great location.
