While the initial grandeur appearance and balanced symmetry of this magnificent oceanfront home is still lingering in your mind, once you step through the stately front entry your senses quickly shift gears as your eyes take in the architectural wonders that now surround you, melding seamlessly with the sight and sound of the ocean waves and dancing sea oats outside. This remarkable Southern Shores retreat must exemplify Architectural Designer Michael York's finest work. Indeed, Frank Lloyd Wright easily comes to mind. There is a graceful elegance in the design that ingeniously meshes rustic, industrial and modern styles while still resonating the simplistic ideals of the old Nags Head-style cottage. A soothing blend of nature's finest and rarest materials has been thoughtfully and expertly used throughout this home from the true European oak engineered hardwood floors and western red cedar beams to the ipe decking, stainless railing and exterior cladding of Alaskan Yellow Cedar #1 shakes that will weather to a silvery hue. This 5911-square-foot marvel has 7 bedrooms, 6 full baths and 2 half-baths, plus 7 storage sheds and 3214 square feet of porches and decks. Outdoor living is unmatched, too, with a pebble tec and glass-finished 700-sq-ft pool with jetted seating areas, fountains, multicolored lighting, temperature settings and a waterfall, a cabana with surround-sound, TV and electric fireplace, outside shower and bathroom, hot tub, and outdoor kitchen with built-in gas grill and state-of-the-art pellet smoker. (For a full list of quality features and custom finishes, both interior and exterior, please see associated docs.) This dream home is one of only four on a cul-de-sac and is adjacent on the south side to an open 315-ft-wide swath owned and maintained by one of the Town's HOAs. This beautiful home is quite simply one of a kind and exhibits the finest craftsmanship to be found on the Outer Banks. It could easily gloss the cover of Architectural Digest. The rental potential is as impressive as the home itself. Call for details.
