Gather your family and friends to experience “Sheer Bliss” at this gorgeous coastal retreat! Located on an elevated lot in the exclusive Palmer’s Island community, this home features panoramic ocean-to-sound views. This prestigious community is nestled at the northern end of Duck, just before the Currituck County line. With decks galore, there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the views. Nature lovers will find their bliss at the outdoor oasis which surrounds the home. Take a short walk to the soundside pier to enjoy outdoor activities like crabbing, kayaking, or simply taking in breathtaking sunsets over the water. Enjoy bird watching and hiking on the Audubon Pine Island Nature Trail, which also lies just steps from the property.
Upon entering the home, the calming coastal decor invites you to relax and unwind. The spacious great room features breathtaking ocean views to the east, stunning sound views to the west, and comfortable indoor and outdoor seating options to enjoy each. The large, well-equipped kitchen would impress any gourmand. High-end appliances, including a gas range, two ovens, two dishwashers, a large refrigerator, and a wine and separate beverage refrigerator along with plentiful counter space, make meal preparation and cleanup a breeze. Kitchen counter seating offers a casual approach to dining, while the elegant dining area allows for more formal dining affairs. Alfresco dining while the sun sets is also available on the oversized screen porch. An elevator that stops at all three floors adds convenience to unloading groceries or luggage. The top level is finished with an impressive ocean-to-sound master bedroom suite. The bedroom has a wall of windows to allow the ocean view in, as well as deck access. The oversized bathroom features a steam shower and a whirlpool tub unlike any other, where you can gaze out at the sound while soaking your cares away.
The middle level of the home includes a roomy den, with a TV and a large couch that was created for lounging. The den also offers access to the covered deck that was made for enjoying salty breezes and a shaded swing on the hammock. Three master bedrooms, each with a private bathroom, are located on this level. There are also two bedrooms, each with a private half bathroom and a shared shower/tub, that complete the middle level. All bedrooms on this level have deck access.
The lower level features one bedroom and a semi-private full bathroom. Step outside to take a refreshing dip in the generously-sized private pool. The boarded beach access, which also features a large dune deck, ensures that you’ll have sandy toes in no time. The soft-sand beach is uncrowded due to the home’s private beach access and exclusive location. You will be rejuvenated after an unforgettable vacation at “Sheer Bliss!”

"The home has breathtaking views on both sides. It was cozy and wonderfully decorated."
"Spectacular views with all the amenities. Great floor plan, nice pool, now in much better shape than in prior years, when it got a little tired. this year the cleaning people were much better as well, the place was spotless, no ants, no cobwebs, no midges!"
"The views and spaciousness in home and on the beach were amazing. We also actually LOVED having two outdoor showers. Definitely not a make it or break it but a small thing that was really appreciated and enjoyed."
"The views are gorgeous. The upper level family room, kitchen, and dining area were well decorated and pleasant."
"We have found our once-a-year vacation home! Sheer Bliss had everything we needed (and even some things we didn’t know we needed!) Thank you for making our decision about next year easy!"
"I have been renting houses in Duck and Corolla for many years, and Sheer Bliss is the best we have ever experienced. It is immaculately maintained, perfectly equipped and the amenities are outstanding. The decor is inviting and homey, the location quiet, and the landscaping beautiful. We have already reserved it for next year."
"Beautiful & well appointed. We are returning next year to enjoy it again!"
"Sheer Bliss is the nicest beach house we've rented in more than 50 years but also the most expensive by a large percentage. Perfect location, in good shape, well appointed, and very tastefully decorated. We loved our week there."
"This was the best home we have ever stayed in at the Outer Banks. It is beautiful, well decorated, and has a huge kitchen. Memories of the screened-in porch overlooking the sound may carry me through the rest of the pandemic. We had the beach all to ourselves and the kids loved the pool. I hope we can come back again!"
