This idyllic charmer in the heart of Manteo breathes history around every corner, nook and cranny. Rumored to have been lovingingly constructed for his mother by a GI returning from the war, his passion and noteworthy craftsmanship is clearly evident in the carefully and thoughtfully restored ranch-style bungalow. His name was Twiford, a name as prolific and rich as the history of the Town itself. Situated just a few blocks from the waterfront, the original distinctive bell tower gracefully tops this four-bedroom, two-bath home. All the modern functions have been thoughtfully blended into this home without disrupting its original character. An enchanting Dutch door welcomes you into the delightful open and airy living room professionally decorated with stylish, yet comfortable furniture and authentic winsome decor. Original wood flooring painted with a soft gray lends a soothing mood throughout every room. The strategically designed layout and placement of furniture provides an open environment while still coveting the past design of formal spaces. A dining room connects you to the well-appointed kitchen where a delightful breakfast nook looks out over the lush landscaped yard, and slate countertops, believed to have been repurposed from old school house blackboards, have been cleverly incorporated into the nostalgic theme. The screened sun porch is simply captivating with its alluring furnishings and select antique decor, and is crafted for all-weather enjoyment providing an appealing space to entertain. When returning inside, the connecting hallway leads you to a bedroom with two twin beds, a spacious queen bedroom and a hall bath. Moving through the doorway is a third bedroom complete with a single bed nestled under the stairs. A beautiful staircase invites you to a lofted area where you'll discover a large open bedroom, stunning private bath and convenient sitting room. Retreat to the balcony where you can overlook your beautifully landscaped spacious lawn and pergola. An additional workshop finishes the lawn affording plenty of room to bring your visions to life on this blank canvas. The details of this one-of-a-kind home, originally constructed with love and passion, are indeed unmatched, as is the opportunity to own in the heart of Manteo. Trust us... you don't want to miss this one.
