About this Property
More than just a beach home, The Merry Duck is your inviting beach home away from home! Welcome to the ideal getaway for the most peaceful holiday ever!!!
The Merry Duck is located in the peaceful and calming Sea Tern Community that has private neighborhood access to both the beach and the sound just a brief walk away! This ideal cedar shake home is surrounded by the sweeping limbs of majestic live oak trees and the natural beauty of the resident deer, bunnies and feathered friends. While staying in this big home, you'll feel like you have escaped reality while you actually only need to drive or bicycle a brief distance to find yourselves in the splendid Village of Duck or the Sanderling resort with a myriad of shopping and dining options. You might not even need to venture beyond the borders of Duck during your stay!
The home itself is supplied with so much family fun, you might not leave during your entire stay! Flat screen TVs are located in the Great Room as well in each bedroom for streaming movies or for playing discs from the DVD library. Downstairs you will find a freshly remodeled and fabulous game room with a pool table, foosball table, convertible chess/poker table, dartboard, flat screen TV with PlayStation 3 and a full-sized futon.
The kitchen of the Merry Duck has been modernized for 2020 with a Samsung induction range and Samsung microwave, as well as an LG French door refrigerator. The induction range heats up extremely fast while keeping the kitchen up to 60% cooler while preparing during the warm summer months! Just steps from the kitchen, this home offers a screened in porch with comfortable wicker chairs and glass topped table ideal for an outdoor dinner, drinks or game of cards.
The big decking on this home is designed for the ultimate peaceful and tranquility while relishing the nature you can find just outdoor your door. Each bedroom has its own separate access to the massive back decking and to the backyard. Wander outdoor to read a rent in one of the porch swings or seats on one of the front or back decks, relax in the hammock located on the middle level of the back outdoor space or climb up to the "crow's nest" to appreciate cloistered sunbathing while appreciating the sea winds among the treetops! Just off the massive back decks, you will find the upsized pool (13'x36'), poolside loungers, tables & chairs including both wood and gas fire pit tables and also a sizable family picnic table. The hot tub was just replaced in October 2019 with a brand new Hot Springs Hot Spot 7-person spa that offers enjoyment and hydrotherapy!
When you pick a day or days for the beach (just 390 yards away) relish the beach chairs for adults & children to make that day even more appealing. For an experience get on the bicycles and tour the bird sanctuary or take 1 or 2 of the one-seater kayaks or the tandem fishing kayak with life jackets and paddles and discover the waters from the private sound access dock (just 100 yards away just across Rt 12). The Merry Duck has something for everybody! Make your plans now for the ultimate experience on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.
If you are bringing any modest children, you will also find a infant gate, highchair and Pack n' Play for little ones' safety inside or outdoor.
