Skyco, the center of Roanoke Island and the Outer Banks. The setting offers plenty of privacy but is located minutes from the beaches. Well maintained trails connect the property to the Coastal Studies Institute to the south and tranquil downtown Manteo to the north. There is access to the Croatan Sound at the end of Skyco Road. Sitting on a ridge, this cedar shake gem is framed by oak trees on a well drained private lot. The large windows flood the house with light while framing the surrounding nature. Granite counters, 9' ceilings, large double hung windows, transoms above exterior and interior doors, 12' vaulted ceilings in the living room, detailed trim, cypress wainscoting, and many other details define this cottage. The outside siding is a combination of cedar shakes and board and batten. The house is on raised piles with parking underneath, enclosed storage and a dry entry. One is able to enclose the remaining ground floor for a garage, storage, workshop or other use. The pull down stairs allow for easy access to the large attic space. Escape the hustle and bustle of beach traffic and living, visit the beach but return to Roanoke Island to wash the sand and salt water off and relax in Skyco. As a bonus, the seafood markets and restaurants in nearby Wanchese offer the freshest seafood on the Outer Banks just minutes from your house.
