The “Then” home with shaded areas under & a hot tub/swing area

A quick video was created after a visit to see the “Now” and “Then” portions of the home in Nags Head.  This oceanfront beauty was once a small beach box with decks and fun memories in it’s “cabin” feel at the ocean.  The home owners later added on a whole new house still combined with the old to present “Now”.  The name of this home is “Now and Then” and has enough room, charm, and décor to bring everyone in the family together from all eras.
