A thoughtfully designed ICF (Insulated Concrete Form) home located on Ocean Bouoevard in Southern Shores. It is spacious, airy and thermally efficient while allowing beautiful views and privacy, thanks to Beacon Architecture & Design, PLLC.


A few features are the well-planned exterior living spaces, unique entry stairwell, and lighting … a super strong, one-of-a-kind modern take on the early concrete flat-top cottages first built by Southern Shores original developer, Frank Stick, in the 1950s.

Travel north on N.C. 12 in Southern Shores. At the traffic light at the intersection of N.C. 12 and East Dogwood Trail, turn right onto Dogwood. Passing the Fire Station, continue east toward the ocean and find the house located at the right corner of E. Dogwood and Old N.C. 12 (Ocean Boulevard).
