“Sea Urch Inn”
107 Canvas Bank Drive, Duck, NC


Welcome to the “Sea Urch Inn” located in the picturesque Carolina Dunes subdivision of Duck. When Scott and Ann Urch approached us with their vision of transforming their Duck rental home into their forever home, we were thrilled to jump on board. The journey of this remarkable remodel started with the addition of an elevator, a spacious kitchen, dining room, home office, and a ground level recreation room and garage. But we didn’t stop there! We took advantage of the opportunity to expand the home on the east side, bringing in more space and endless possibilities. From top to bottom, we left no stone unturned – updating the roof, windows, siding, decks, electrical, plumbing, and HVAC systems. The heart of the home, the kitchen, now boasts a perfect setting for quality family time and entertaining guests. Every living space received a makeover, including new flooring, cabinets, countertops, appliances, plumbing fixtures, and light fixtures. And what was once a simple beach house has now transformed into the forever home for Scott and Ann Urch. Join them on this extraordinary journey and experience the charm and comfort of the “Sea Urch Inn”.


House Only.  This is a REMODEL $780,000.00
