A beautiful, spacious, 4 bedroom/2 bath, 3-story home on a huge lot directly on the Pamlico Sound! This home has it all-a Trex ramp leading to 1st level, an elevator, new hurricane-rated windows looking out to the Sound, an additional living area with "murphy bed" on 3rd floor, a whole-house generator, and gas on-demand hot water heater. Unique hard wood floors, luxury vinyl on the first floor, custom tiling in the bathrooms and kitchen. An abundance of windows gives natural light and 2 covered porches with striking western red cedar ceilings offer an unobstructed view of the sound- perfect for watching the passing boats and bird-watching. Large eat-in kitchen with custom cabinets (Hatteras Originals made in Frisco), stainless steel appliances, gas stove, granite counter-tops and a back-splash with hand-made tiles. Custom walk-in closet. There is a nice grassed yard leading to more than 100' on the Pamlico Sound- with a bulkhead with a small dock. The home was built in 3 stages- beginning in 2006, finishing in 2009 and sits on over 21, 000 sf at the end of a private road in coveted Sound Shores. Metal roof and sprayed insulation in all external walls, roof and floors.
