Outer Banks Oceanfront Homes For Sale

OBX Oceanfront Views

Without a doubt, the most appealling aspect of the Outer Banks is the Atalntic Ocean and the views that go along with it. A true oceanfront house should have unobstructed views of the ocean. However, depending on the location of the house the views might be limited. The higher the house is the better the views will be.

Types of Ocean Views

1. best - wide open 180 degree panoramic view of the waves crashing on the beach out to the horizon

2. 90 degree waves crashing on beach w

3 180 degree horizon only view behind dune

In the village of Avon on Hatteras Island the National Park Service owns the oceanfront and the sand dunes between the oceanfront and the oceanfront houses. This extended distance and the sand dunes tend to cut off the ocean view

4. 90 degree horizon view

5. A Tunnel View happens in situations with flag lots. A 'Flag Lot' gets its name because it looks like a flag on a pole. The pole part of the lot is a thin strip of land whichs provides direct oceanfront access between 2 oceanfront houses to the building portion of the lot which is located behing the oceanfront houses and is a large rectangle attached to the pole.

6. Peek-A-Boo views are the ocean views that properties 2 and 3 back off the oceanfront hope for.

The first floor, which is the level on top of the pilings, will have limited views at best unless there is no sand dune. If you are loking at the ocean from this level you will be at the level of the top of the dune. you will be able to see the ocean over the top of the dunes and depending on how big the dune is will determine how much of the ocean view will be cut off. This type of view could range between just a view of the distant horizon to tops of beach goers heads stanfdong on the beach or if the dune is missing waves crashing on the beach
