On the Crystal Coast, the spirit of each area can vary dramatically from one destination to the next. But some qualities are predictable— the history, charm and enduring appeal of this area are constants. Whether you spend your days on one of our many beaches searching for seashells, shopping in our quaint seaside towns, hiking the trails of The Neusiok, or fishing off-shore with the family, this area suits the needs of the many: the old, the young, the active and the quiet. The enchanting home at 6240 Adams Creek Road follows suit with its many merits and one-of-a-kind, exceptional features.
Arriving at this address from the long tucked-away drive leads you to a secluded spot. Built in 1870, this home would have been— and still is— an impressive estate. The sweet southern vibe hits you from the start— the classic colonial style of white siding and black shutters is timeless and traditional. Stepping inside these doors is entering into another world if not another time, where serenity reigns. The huge yet homey kitchen greets you with exposed wood beams on the ceiling, wood cabinets, warm wood floors and a fetching brick fireplace with a spot to sit down right in front. Choose to have cozy meals here or host company in the grand dining room next door. So much about this home is dual purpose. Living here provides lots of living space to gather in groups, yet intimate spots, too, to retreat into solitude whenever it’s needed. The wood-paneled den is a favorite for quieter gatherings, but crowds always flock to the spacious living room with corner views of the creek. Each room maintains its own distinct feel, from the waterfront library to the gracious master bedroom, with muted tones of grey and green with coordinating wood trim throughout to enhance the soothing mood of this residence.
In so many ways, this setting is idyllic. You have privacy and peace, and the beauty of nature at your doorstep, with wide-angle views of skyscape, water and calm. Spend your days watching boats sail by with the breeze and eagles swoop and soar through the clouds. Hike one of the many trails nearby or catch your dinner of Red Drum or Striper from your own private beach. Lie in bed at night and listen to the hoot of owls, and marvel at the intensity of the moon and stars so bright they cast a glow inside.
Admiring the view while sitting on your front doorstep, you might imagine in your reverie that time in fact stood still, and you are gazing out at the unchanged view of green across the waterway from back in the late 19th century, when this home was built. But, a fishing boat in the distance or kayaker cruising by are a snap back to our much loved, cherished and close- to- perfect Crystal Coast reality.
