Heading Down East is like venturing into another world, where nature and community reign and the serenity is palpable. The route itself is a designated North Carolina Scenic Byway— and for good reason. Traveling the gently curved roadways and low-slung bridges is a relaxing and gentle journey over rivers and past little beaches, local churches, and farm stands, too. The closer you get to your destination, the more evidence of days gone by —Longleaf Pine and Live Oak trees line the roads hearkening back to a time when North Carolina was dense with forest.

The sellers of this home searched high and low to find the ideal locale to build. They discovered the aptly named Quiet Cove and knew it was the place, falling in love with the view, the utter quiet and meditative effects of this particular spot, as well as its incredible beauty. Though they built here before the community was developed, the addition of happy homes, boat docks, and friendly neighbors strolling about the neighborhood hasn't changed the vibe, and it's only increased the appeal.

The home itself has the most sought-after elements any home buyer would hope for— situated waterfront, with a first-floor primary bedroom, additional bedrooms and bathrooms upstairs, an open floor plan and incredible outdoor spaces to take in the spectacular scenery. Coming through the front door, the appeal of the design is immediately apparent. The inside captures the outside beautifully with windows that run the full breadth of the house from the living room to the sunroom alongside, providing an incredible backdrop to life.

From any space you choose on the ground floor, whether watching the sun rise while sipping coffee in the sunroom or cooking meals together while the sun sets in the evening, it's all made more pleasurable with the peace and the glorious views.

The upstairs is the perfect setup with bedrooms on either side that feature window seats for watching the birds and the boats or shooting stars come nightfall. There is an additional guest room with a jack-and-jill bath and a dedicated bath for the other bedroom, making it a total of three bedrooms and two bathrooms. With all the space, guests will flock to visit and may never leave — especially with the private sitting room—a wonderful refuge right at the center of the house!

When it comes time to venture off, it's easy to hop on the boat when there's a dock at your doorstep. Travelers from near and far revel in the charm, history and splendor of The Cape Lookout National Seashore, and so will you! It's easy to access from here and a joy, with its pristine beaches, crystal clear waters and the historic Cape Lookout lighthouse to visit.

To these sellers, living here has meant weekends with friends and family fishing, swimming, boating and loving life rain or shine every season — making lifelong friends, lasting memories, and enjoying every minute of the Crystal Coast lifestyle and their custom-built home in Quiet Cove.
