Real Estate with a classic Outer Banks feel
Driving north on Hwy 12 through Southern Shores and the town of Duck, but before you reach the village of Corolla, you will reach the area called Pine Island. Known for its large, elegant and luxurious beach homes. It has earned a reputation as one of the more exclusive and sought-after communities on the Outer Banks. These homes are perched along three miles of pristine beach and to the west borders the nature preserve owned by the National Audubon Society. As one of the more unique areas of the Outer Banks, many of the Pine Island rental homes offer wide open views of the Atlantic Ocean to the east and the nature preserve and Currituck Sound to the west.
