This is one of the most unique and historic properties on the entire Outer Banks, and now it can be yours! This property, rich with heritage, has endless possibilities. It is currently one large 30,238 sq foot property, but can potentially be subdivided into 2, 3, or 4 lots depending on whether or not you remove the current structures.
