House | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
"Edgewater" is a luxury home ideally suited to families who enjoy having their own private space when they are on vacation. When you rent this property you are getting two homes for the price of one. There is a main house with three bedrooms and a detached guest house offering another bedroom and full kitchen of its own. All told the property encompases 4,800 sq. ft.
Visitors to this soundside sanctuary have full access to the Southern Shores beaches, which are only a short bike or car ride from the house. Included in the rental packet are parking passes good for use at the Hillcrest Lifeguard Beach, amd other available swimming spots. You will also get keys to the Southern Shores community tennis courts. And if you're a boater, you'll have privileges to lanch at the Southern Shores Boat Club. Then just head on over to Edgewater, which has a 24 ft. dock of its own.
The house is easy to get to. In fact, once you cross the Wright Memorial Bridge from Route 158, you're virtually there! No fighting traffic to reach our house. And the rental company where you pick up the keys is right nearby.
Edgewater is not your typical "beach box" house. You will experience the best of both worlds: Ready access to the beach and restaurants and shops, combined with the peaceful beauty of the Southern Shores coastline tucked against the edge of Kitty Hawk Woods. Take in the sunset over the top of marsh grasses. Listen as the frogs trill their songs. You can't beat open, undeveloped spaces. Edgewater is a true soundside sanctuary.
You can always reach the house from the water if you prefer to. Albemarle Sound connects to our inlet directly. Edgewater has a dock which measures 12 x 24 ft. It has mooring pilings and a solid pier leading up to the house. The water depth is approximately 3 ft. at the dock. The channel is much deeper. Feel free to bring your kayak or canoe along. The dock is a perfect spot for putting in.
If you were walking through the property, here's what it would look like:
The vaulted ceilings of the great room greet you as you walk in. Huge wooden cross beams salvaged from a barn in Pennsylvania barn hold the high ceiling up. There's a gourmet kitchen with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances.The dining table seats eight, and there are bar stools for five more. Edgewater is a "smart home." That means you will find WiFi, televisions, and controllable stereo speakers throughout the two houses. The living room features leather couches situated around a 52-inch flat screen T.V. with home theater surround sound.
Past the kitchen is a long hallway with three bedrooms off it, plus a separate half bath, too. The bedrooms each have their own lofts with either sleeping accomodations in each. The lofts also have great water views! Bedroom #1 is on the left as you head down the hall. It features a pyramid bunk. This bedroom shares a large bathroom with Bedroom #2, which is the next bedroom off the hallway past the laundry. Bedroom #2 has a queen-sized bed. At the end of the hall is Bedroom #3, the master bedroom, with its king-sized bed and luxurious master bath.
On the deck you'll find a large hot tub facing the water. The separate guest house is to your right. Inside is the living room and kitchen, with spiral stairs going to the fabulous loft. The master bedroom has a king-sized bed and comfortable sofa and chairs beneath the bedroom windows. The master bath can be reached from both either the bedroom or the living room.
The pool is on the ground floor within easy reach of the tiki bar and game room, where you can shoot some billards, watch T.V., or pour yourself a drink at the wet bar. During colder months, you may request to have the pool heat turned on for an additional fee. There's parking a plenty of parking, both covered and not. And off behind the house is the pier and dock. What a wonderful place to watch the sunset--or just generally enjoy the beauty of the Nature Conservancy lands.
