The very heart and spirit of the Crystal Coast is the area known as Down East. This region begins at the North River and proceeds east to Cedar Island. All of Carteret County’s rich history, world famous fishing and hunting can be traced back to there.
557 Gillikin Road is a fantastic opportunity for you to be part of the Down east heritage. This large home has approximately 2,600 square feet of living space and sits on 1.24 acres of land. It is ideally located in close proximity to the intersection of Hwy. 70 and Harkers Island Road, but set back far enough to enjoy quiet and seclusion of your surroundings. This enables you to quick access to Beaufort to the west, Davis, Sea Level and Cedar Island to the east and to the south the public boat ramp and Harkers Island.
This large home has 5 bedrooms, 4 full baths, wood floors and 2 fireplaces. It is a great opportunity for anyone who wishes to live the coastal life and doesn’t mind a little extra effort to save some money to get it. It needs some repairs and upgrades but nothing major. It’s mainly cosmetic stuff such as painting, new carpets, refurbishing the wood floors, etc. But, there is also a $5,000 Buyer credit being offered by the seller to help defray the repair cost.
As you enter the front door you will find the living room to the left. It is a classic living area offering space and comfort. It features a gas fireplace for convenience and comfort.
Adjacent to the living room is a small extra room that can be used as a home office, storage or utility room. Also adjacent to the living room is one of the 5 bedrooms with own full bath.
On the other side of the first floor is the kitchen, a very large kitchen. This kitchen has as much space as most people’s living room! It is intended for cooking and eating and all sorts of family dinners!
Adjacent to the kitchen is a 2nd master bedroom with a gas fireplace. Just think about how romantic that would be, sleeping nice and cozy in bed with a fire going! To complete this dream bedroom is your very own bathroom and a big walk-in closet with washer and dryer hookups.
Moving upstairs you will discover the other master suite to the left. It too has its own private master bathroom and large walk-in closet. But this master suite has an added bonus-a sunroom! Enjoy the sun or viewing the outdoors year round in this heated and cool sunroom.
As you pass by the stairs there is washer and dryer closet. And on the other side you will discover the 4th and 5th bedrooms. These two bedrooms share their very own full bathroom.
This home has a gas pak (2 years old) heating and cooling system, a carport and workshop in the back. It is very close to great fishing and boating and a whole lot more.
