A RARE OPPORTUNITY to own the MOST PHOTOGRAPHED PROPERTY on Silver Lake with private 'nethouse'/dock-shed and shared (with adjoining neighbor on east side) boat dock/pier! Most often the majestic Ocracoke Lighthouse is photographed in the background, making for a stunning shot!! Formerly owned by the Burrus family, this charming historic home was built in 1934 by Charlie Scarborough and his brother Thad Scarborough for Lonnie Burrus, Sr. The current sellers saw that it was for sale while vacationing on the island many years ago and just fell in love with it; the rest is history! Speaking of history, this home is on the US Dept. of the Interior/National Park Service/National Register of Historic Places/Ocracoke Historic District, Hyde County. You may know it as "Chadwick South," as it was in a vacation rental program for the prime summer weeks for many years. Ocracoke Island is only accessible by ferry from Hatteras Island to the north, from Swan Quarter or Cedar Island to the south and west, by private boat or yacht, or by private plane. While the home has a NEW ROOF (July 2020) and NEW SIDING REPAIRS (Completed December 2020), it is being sold "as is" in its post-Dorian 'ready-for-new-owners-to-put-their-mark-on-it' condition. Perhaps new owners will prefer to have the house lifted, preserving the historic island cottage charm while maximizing the spectacular expansive views of Silver Lake Harbor! The interior offers a blank canvas, allowing the new owners to remodel to their sense of style and creativity in selections of cabinetry, plumbing fixtures, flooring and opportunity to personalize to one's tastes and budget.
