Parade of homes: On the waterfront
Directions: Returning to Fourth Street, drive west toward the sound until it ends at Bay Drive. Take a left on Bay Drive, follow beyond the intersection with Third Street and see the house on the right at # 1732.
Description: Russ and Mary Ellen Fentress’ three-story sound-front home was completed just in time for a 4th of July celebration and Russ’ birthday! Russ and Mary Ellen were terrific to work with! Mary Ellen really knew what she wanted in this home and had been planning this family retreat for years.
She chose carbonized bamboo flooring, custom ceramic tile baths, a huge master bath tile shower. Built-in cabinets flank the great room fireplace and are in the dining room. A three-story split staircase with custom railing design of maple and upgraded trim throughout.
The 3rd floor kitchen, dining and great room enjoy panoramic views of Kitty Hawk Bay. All framing lumber in this home was harvested from SFI certified forests in Eastern NC.
This is a 5-Star Plus ENERGY STAR certified home with a HERS Rating of 55.
