Southern Shores Real Estate Listings

By far the most residential town in Dare County, Southern Shores is also home to sought-after Outer Banks second homes and vacation rental properties. This is the largest planned community in this area and was the original vision of artist Frank Stick. Development began with the iconic cement block “flat top” beach retreats, but recent construction has resulted in some of the most beautiful Outer Banks oceanfront properties. This ocean to sound community is made up of a series of canals and mature trees and is known for large home sites and high elevation vistas. The beaches are wide, sandy and private as they are only accessible to owners and guests. The homeowner’s association maintains a number of sports facilities including playgrounds, a sports field, basketball half court and tennis courts. There are three marinas and two parks, including a sound front park on North Dogwood Trail that has panoramic water views and picnic facilities. The oldest golf course and country club on the Outer Banks, Duck Woods Country Club, is located in the town, and although it is a private club, it offers a variety of membership options. With close proximity to the Wright Memorial Bridge, this location offers quick access on and off the Outer Banks.
