Idyllic life along the intracoastal waterway

Published 10:50 am Thursday, April 8, 2021

Located along the banks of the Pamlico River with direct access to the intracoastal waterway, this spacious home is an oasis for any avid outdoorsmen. 

Built in 1999, the home located at 1981 Canady Landing Road is within a private community in Aurora, meaning the Aurora Fossil Museum, community center and downtown shops are just minutes away. The property is also within close proximity to the state-run ferry that can take passengers across the Pamlico from Bayview to Aurora. This ferry runs year-round and a detailed schedule can be found on the North Carolina Department of Transportation website. 

The home’s close proximity to the Pamlico River opens a world of possibilities for homeowners, from boating to water-sports to wildlife photography and more. A boat dock is located directly across from the home, providing easy access to all types of recreational activities like fishing, boating, waterskiing, kayaking and canoeing.

The house is a custom build with 3,674 square feet of living space. The main house has three bedrooms, five bathrooms, and a completely updated interior. Highlights include the expansive living area on the main floor of the home and the private theatre room for personal film screenings whenever the mood hits. 

The eat-in kitchen is spacious enough for the most talented chef and has updated stainless steel appliances. Granite countertops and white cabinets in this large galley kitchen provide ample prep space to ensure 

The master suite of this residence is located on the second story and includes an expansive bedroom, walk-in closet and dressing room, kitchenette, corner office and a balcony with breathtaking views of the waterway. The other two bedrooms have their own attached on-suite bathroom with plenty of room for personal belongings and are located on the main level of the home. 

In addition to the living space on the main and second floors of the home, an additional bedroom with a full bath, expansive workshop and half bathroom are located on the first floor of the home. These rooms are not included in the livable square footage and provide a private space for guests away from the dedicated living space on the main floor.
