"Ridge Retreat" is on the National Register of Historic Places in the Old Nags Head district. The home was built in 1979 to reflect iconic features of the unpainted aristocracy, and in 2019 it was deftly expanded to meet the expectations that today's vacationers relish while maintaining the rich aesthetics. Wrap around porches grace two levels of the home, providing a breezy environment no matter where the wind blows. Juniper bead board walls with chair rails evoke style from a bygone era, and wood flooring runs through every level of the home. Breathtaking ocean views lie to the east, with sunset vistas falling nightly across Jockey's Ridge. The open concept living area includes ample windows to bring in light and frame coastal beauty, and the brick hearth gas fireplace operates with the flick of a switch. A formal dining room creates the perfect space to entertain the entire group, and a full bath and cozy sitting room complete the main level. Four bedrooms lie upstairs, including 2 oceanfront en-suite chambers with direct access to the sunny top deck. Two other bedrooms overlooking Jockey's ridge share a Jack and Jill bath. The ground level was added in 2019 using quality materials that evoke early 20th century style. Three more bedrooms plus a den with wet bar and refrigerator ensure there is space for the entire group. Expansive decking is accessible from ground and mid levels, with a long raised walkway leading dune-side to the Atlantic Ocean. Kite flyers and hang gliders will appreciate the nearby pedestrian crosswalk to Jockey's Ridge State Park. Rinse sand and sea away at the convenient twin outside shower stalls. Step through the door and back in time!
