Take a step back in time to Old Ocracoke at this simple, old island-style house. Hurricane House is in the Ocracoke historic district and was built in approximately 1880. It is a standard island style home with weathered shingles, 1 ½ stories with a first-floor kitchen and dining room at the back. The front porch faces West to receive the prevailing southwest winds in the summertime. Situated at the end of a sandy lane, secluded, and surrounded by thickets and marshes with 130 feet on Pamlico Sound. You can walk out the front porch and be right at the water’s edge. The Sound is shallow for quite a way until you reach the channel. A short 5–10-minute drive gets you to the fish house, grocery and hardware stores, restaurants, and shops. This Saturday turn day property is called Hurricane House because an earlier owner wrote an hour-by-hour account of both the 1933 and 1944 hurricanes on a wall of the house. The current owner bought the house in 1984, moved it to their property, and rebuilt it with as much salvaged material as possible after severe storm damage in the fall of 1985. Keeping with the simplicity of Old Ocracoke, apart from AC/Heat, TVs or Wi-Fi, this house was restored with only the basics of amenities. Linens and towels are not provided, please inquire about rental options. Parking is limited to 2 cars.
