Testimonial from Realtor:
Remember the way that Outer Banks home you and your family used to enjoy felt. You spent the morning on the deck with a hot cup of coffee watching the sunrise, all of the day playing at the beach, then coming back to your vacation home for a fresh catch dinner, great conversations and the salty night air blowing through the open shutters. Bring all of those memories back to life in this one of a kind classic beach home. Featuring all of the "Old Nags Head Style" charm, Yankee Retreat offers gorgeous juniper walls, wood floors, an open floor plan, wood beamed ceilings, hurricane shutters, expansive decks, amazing ocean views and so much more. One of the original oceanfront homes in Kill Devil Hills, built in 1946, she has weathered many storms and was moved closer to Rt. 12 back in 1990 to keep her better protected. Offering many upgrades including a new HVAC unit, duct work, hurricane shutters, roof and septic authorized for 4 bedrooms the owners have continued to maintain their love for this beauty.
