HOME EXTERIOR – The cabin has been reconstructed within the footprint of its former self and is situated on three acres. Your very own dock along the waterfront too!
EAST ENTRANCE – A natural pathway leads from the driveway to the home’s covered side entrance, shaded by the property’s grand cedar trees.
GREAT ROOM – Furnishings were selected for their clean lines and spa-style color palette. Woven wicker-style furnishings feel right at home in the waterfront cottage.
KITCHEN – Nestled in a portion of the home’s original living room, the classic kitchen offers modern conveniences and incorporates elements reclaimed from the circa-1800s home.
DINING – The team from Kitchen Crashers created this unique glass-topped dining table which made use of the home’s original corner posts. Dimmable LED lights illuminate beach combing treasures scattered atop a bed of sand, reclaimed from the property’s own beachfront. Seashells and sea glass from nearby Harkers Island surround an old glass bottle filled with a special message.
SUN ROOM – A cozy reading and relaxation space which exemplifies the rustic chic interior design through the home.
LANDING – At the top of the staircase, a built-in library showcases vintage curios donated by the former owners.
MASTER BEDROOM – A crisp white comforter serves as a neutral canvas for paisley-print and striped duvets and a cozy coverlet, folded at the bed’s edge.
