Choosing your home is a monumental decision with many variables. Location, location, location is a recurring refrain—one we’ve heard often and one that resonates. But there’s more to location than where a house sits. It can determine many things— school district, green space, access to fun and relaxation, commute time. What it really determines, however, is happiness. Where you live affects you emotionally, psychologically and even physically now and in retrospect, bringing back fond memories. Home is a part of us, brings us comfort and defines us. The importance of place is universal. One of the first questions you might ask when you meet someone new is, “Where are you from? Or… where do you call home?”
Living at this address, you’re from the Carolina coast, with your home on the water—one of the places in nature that has an overwhelmingly positive effect on mood, vibe and even health. There is a serenity when you choose this spot as well as a myriad of options for entertainment and time with family— from fishing off your very own dock, to swimming, to quick jaunts by boat for lunch or longer trips out to sea. Visit the Cape Lookout Lighthouse, or go island hopping and hit up Sand Dollar, Sugarloaf and Carrot Island, too, to visit the wild horses. Having a dock and deep water access at your doorstep is a huge deal for folks here and is part and parcel of the lifestyle we all love so much. This dock is also the perfect place to shoot off fireworks come the 4th of July, and that can be a tradition and what you wait for year after year!
At 140 Warren Avenue, your residence is your oasis with a big backyard for the kids to fully take advantage of with so much space. The grown ups can keep a close eye from the upper back deck, camp out in the grass or dip toes in the cool water and relax. Close to the Croatan National Forest, there are hiking trails within walking distance, too, so family adventure is never far away.
If you need to break away, most everything is within a 20 minute drive or closer. Head to downtown Morehead City, Swansboro or Beaufort for fine dining, cute cafes or shopping at so many sweet boutiques in a snap! The beaches are also close as is the NC Aquarium, the ideal destination on a rainy day. Hanging inside is an option too, this home has been lovingly updated to be that place you need never leave. It has space and beauty, water views and most importantly it has heart which makes it a home! A home isn’t just where you are, it’s who you are— and this home is a joy.
