Sea Notes is the name of our oceanfront house which is at 125 Sea Tern Drive in the northern part of the small town of Duck, in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. We first viewed the house in May 2012 and then several months later purchased the house in September 2012. When we first walked up the stairs and into the great room and saw the incredible ocean view from Sea Notes we couldn’t resist buying it. We had a few more rentals that year, but then spent quite a few months during the winter and spring doing a good bit of work to the house and making quite a few improvements to the furnishings.

Just the year before, in July 2011, we had purchased another house in Duck, on Poteskeet Drive in the “downtown” area of Duck Village. We subsequently had make major renovations to that house including a good bit of construction, landscaping and a pool. We also replaced the kitchen and most of two bathrooms and completely replaced all of the furnishings. That house is named “DuckAway” and you can visit its web site at http://www.duckaway.org.
