The noted explorer, archaeologist, anthropologist, paleontologist, and part-time plumbing contractor from the University of Chicago, Professor Duffer A. Hacker, led two expeditions to the outer banks in the late 1920’s. The purpose of these expeditions was to search for an answer as to what happened to the lost colony of Roanoke Island and to look for treasure believed to have been hidden by Blackbeard the Pirate. Professor Hacker’s first surprise was the discovery of an old mining train built by the Confederate Army during the Civil War. They were searching for gold to finance their war effort. Take the mining car* to the top of the mountain and follow Professor Hacker as you putt your way through an adventurous expedition to find gold and diamonds.

About this Property
OCEANFRONT Salvo - Colony Drive Live the LIFE AQUATIC at this Hatteras Island beach hideaway. Breathtaking beauty is seen through the great room windows that reach to the sky. Morning coffee has never tasted better than when seated at the café table in the oceanfront screened porch. And beach access is simple, just over the dune.
When you arrive for your holiday, unload the car and change into your swim suits for a stimulating dip in the private pool. A wet outdoor space accepts you to lounge in the water, or the children to play, without going in deep. Spread out a buffet on the outdoor dining table or grille up some lunch on the charcoal grille. The poolside cabana bar has everything you need to relax including a TV, sink, refrigerator and bar counter with stools. An indulgent hot tub is close by for when the sun goes down. An outdoor cabana half bath is effortlessly located close by as well.
Inside, find bliss in four well-appointed bedrooms. The top level king suite has private entry into the shared bathroom. Three bedrooms are located on the lower level and include a queen and a pyramid bedroom that share a full bath between them, and another king bedroom with private entry into the hall bathroom.
Meal prep is a wind in the radiant and cavernous kitchen with modern appliances and breakfast bar. The dining table is close by and seats the group with sea vistas. After dinner, gather around the huge screen TV in the great room for your favorite show or movie on the DVD player. It will be difficult not to be distracted by the blue sea vistas, so the group might prefer sit on the outdoor space to watch the colors of the sky change at sunset. Climb the spiral staircase to the loft game room with foosball table, another flat screen TV/DVD and a desk. With all that this home has to offer, life is good at LIFE AQUATIC! (Fireplace seen in photos is not available for guest use.)
