The nearby town of Oriental, NC, while small, is known as the 'Sailing Capitol of NC'' and the entire waterway and area is described as the Inner Banks of NC. Clearly a lot for your dream house.

Whether you seek an active waterfront lifestyle or just want to sit back and relax on the waterside of your dream home, there is no place better than 672 Preservation Road.
