Gracious Tides is truly a one of a kind gem located on the oceanfront in the heart of Duck within walking distance to shops, restaurants and the soundfront boardwalk. With incredible ocean views, a ground floor elevation of 18 feet + and a very high well vegetated dune this property is special. It is beautifully maintained and decorated to appeal to even the most discriminating owner. While the original home was constructed in 1978 from its original owner, the home was purchased in 2000 by the current owner and an architecturally designed addition was added. The interior of the original structure was also completely redone and the floor plan changed. The great room is spacious and open with lots of glass and outstanding views of the ocean. In 2019 a new direct vent gas fireplace was added. The kitchen features a bar counter that is open to the great room and while cooking on the new cook top, which was installed with down draft venting, one can also enjoy the amazing ocean views. The oven has a microwave with convection oven option. There is no carpeting in the entire house! All living spaces on the first and second levels have 4" wide solid oak flooring and all bathrooms and the entire ground level area have ceramic/porcelain tile flooring. The master bedroom is truly a fantastic space, very spacious with unsurpassed ocean views, a private oceanfront deck, full bathroom and 2 large closets. The second bedroom on the top level also has a private bathroom and functions as a second master suite. All bedrooms are spacious and sunny. The entire home has been professionally decorated and has an abundance of charm and a welcoming coastal feel. The exterior siding is vinyl shakes with vinyl trim and soffits and requires no painting. The oceanfront sliding glass doors and the north and south side windows in the great room are equipped with custom wood hurricane shutters as are the south facing and oceanfront windows on the ground floor. They are all easy to operate and all hinges are stainless steel and were installed in 2019. All exterior decking and handrails were replaced in 2019. The owner of this stunning home has limited the rentals and assiduously sustained the home. The stellar condition certainly reflects it. While the home has a septic permit for 4 bedrooms there is another very nice large room on the ground floor.
