This beautiful Colonial Revival style home is sold with 2 lots totaling nearly one-half acre and includes fabulous gardens and gazebo areas suitable for garden parties, weddings or any formal entertaining, not to mention being the perfect oasis for morning coffee or evening drinks.  The garden includes a grape arbor containing cuttings from the Mother Vine (Original Scuppernong Vine) a real Eastern NC story!  Known as the Forbes-Nixon House (W.G. Forbes was the first mayor of Manteo) this home underwent major renovations in 2006 by noted builder Calvin Gibbs, including a new wing built in the original style.  Modern conveniences and additions blend with the original home in a seamless, yet livable marriage. Current zoning would allow for uses such as a Bed & Breakfast or VRBO or use as a special events venue.  Of course, one would be hard pressed not to wish to make this their permanent residence and enjoy all that Manteo has to offer within a short stroll.  Walk to concerts at Festival Park, enjoy Saturday morning farmers markets, walk the longest contiguous boardwalk in North Carolina along the Roanoke Sound, dine at the many fine local restaurants or shop at locally owned boutiques.  Do not forget the nearby Outer Banks and some of the greatest beaches in the world!
