DISCOVER LIFE ON THE SOUND
Venture out from your home in Waterside Villages and you’ll find yourself in a region rich in history. First home to Native American tribes and then to wealthy industrialists who built lodges and enjoyed life on the coast; hunting, fishing and exploring. Now, it’s your turn. The area has seen recent growth with many new homes in Grandy, NC being built. The region known as Lower Currituck stretches from roughly the southern tip of Knott’s Island south to Point Harbor; you can travel from one end to the other via Rt. 158. Take a road trip and you’ll visit local favorites along the way, from diners that still do the ninety-nine-cent breakfast to vegetable stands overflowing with home-grown produce. Or, simply pull over to enjoy the scenic beauty of the landscape. Open road, blue sky, warm sea breeze. It’s like a dream come true, isn’t it?
WELCOME TO THE INNER BANKS
On this side of the Currituck Peninsula is what we call the “Inner Banks,” a strip of coastline that is blessed with gentle seabreezes and equally gentle waters. The weather here is a blend of moderate summer and winter months, and as such is ideal for enjoying the great outdoors. There are few places in the world that rival this coastal paradise when it comes to year-round outdoor activities such as duck hunting, kayaking, boating and fishing. In addition, just minutes in either direction are quaint coastal towns, perfect for exploring, along with the beaches and attractions for which the Outer Banks area is famous.
The Currituck Sound borders acres of undisturbed marshlands, maritime forests, and pristine Carolina coastal landscape; a haven for wildlife of all kinds. The sound is so insulated from the ocean – by a string of islands known as the Currituck Peninsula – that the vigorous winds of the Atlantic Ocean are barely a whisper by the time they reach us. These calm conditions, in both wind and tide, not only give Waterside Villages an air of serenity; they also create a paradise for outdoor enthusiast.
WHERE THE COASTLINE MEETS SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY.
Families embrace a simpler way of life in a region known for its natural beauty. Grandy has a special small town feel, but it’s just minutes from the world class beaches, restaurants and shopping of the Outer Banks. The area is also home to North Carolina’s oldest microbrewery, Weeping Radish Farm Brewery and Restaurant, which was established in 1986 and in 2012 was featured on the Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives.
Located just a ¼ mile south, Sanctuary Vineyards is owned by the native Wright family, who grow and harvest their own grapes on a hundred acre seaside farm and host daily wine tasting. The Cotton Gin is a fun and uniquely-coastal shopping experience with its whimsical, vintage merchandise. Lastly, if golf is your game, the area also boasts three clubs with championship golf courses; the Carolina, the Kilmarlic and the Pointe.
