Just steps away from the beautiful sandy beaches of Kitty Hawk NC, this Semi-Oceanfront Kitty Hawk Cottage with breathtaking Ocean Views is an important part of Outer Banks history. Originally built to stable horses for the Kitty Hawk Lifesaving Station in the late 1800’s, the horses were used to transport life boats from the boat house to the water and back again as needed. In the mid 1950’s, the horse stable was lifted out of the sand and turned into a home, adding two bedrooms, a kitchen, bath, and screened porch at that time. In 2020, the entire home underwent a major remodel, renovation and extensive modernization all while maintaining the original patina of the historic stable. This now 2,335-square foot, 4 bedrooms, 4 full baths and one half bath fully furnished home is truly a unique piece of Outer Banks history. This home is a perfect blend of modern comfort and historic industrial style, from the original pine barn floors to the exposed ceiling beams. This remarkable Nags Head style cottage is a one of a kind design/build/restoration by architectural designer Michael York with craftsmanship like none other on the Outer Banks! The living area on the main mid level features coastal décor, plenty of natural sunlight, exposed beams and beautiful hardwood floors that were once part of the original stable. Lounge on the comfortable furniture situated around the Fireplace to watch a movie on the Flat-Screen TV or relax in the sitting area to enjoy your favorite book with spectacular ocean views. The modern kitchen has plenty of prep space, new stainless-steel appliances, an island bar with seating, and comes fully stocked for all of your cooking needs. You’ll also enjoy a convenient half bath and mid-level entry into the home through a spacious laundry room and rear sun deck. Adjacent to the living area is a large screened-in porch providing a great place for alfresco dining or enjoying a pleasant ocean breeze. You will also find two bedrooms on this level, the first bedroom features 2 Twin beds and has access to the full-sized hall bath. The bath is also attached to the second bedroom; a cozy Queen Master. The front deck is partially covered giving you the option to lay out in the sun or relax in the shade while staring out over the ocean. There are Bluetooth Speakers located in the living area, screened porch and deck. On the top level, two more Master bedrooms are available for a great night’s rest—a King Master and Queen Master, each with its own Attached Full Bath. Plus, both bedrooms enjoy awesome ocean views! On the ground level, a den features a large flat-screen TV with Full Surround Sound and a Queen Sleeper Sofa with access to a convenient Full Bath. Just steps away on the rear deck, a hot tub is offered where you can kick back with your favorite tunes by connecting your phone to the Bluetooth Speakers. Architectural Digest ranked Kitty Hawk #1 in their "Top 10 Places to Buy a Summer Beach House” in 2023 for its natural beauty, historic charm and bustling restaurants (home is conveniently located and just steps to Hurricane Mo’s and the Black Pelican). In addition, you will be afforded the protection and security of the dune line and NC12, which is continuously maintained by NCDOT. Take a tour here: https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=HVy6F55aHPV
