Neal Contracting Company (House 3)
Matthew and Rachel Neal, Builder
“Plan (B)each”
8 Fifth Avenue, Southern Shores, NC


After a Spring ’22 fire consumed the original structure at 8 Fifth Avenue, the owner needed to replace what was lost by the deadline of the ‘23 rental season.  Plans were drawn, selections were made, and construction began a few months later.  The resulting 7 bedroom, 7 bath flat top home is fitted with durable LVT flooring, semi-custom cabinetry topped with quartz countertops, custom tile bathrooms, and the original pool, which was completed just before the fire.  A home for multi-generational gathering that proves Plan B doesn’t need to be a compromise.  We welcome you to “Plan (B)each”.


House Only:  $900,000
