Duck, NC Oceanfront Real Estate

Duck is one of the most popular seaside resort towns on the East Coast, yet it has managed to maintain its family-oriented charm and relaxed, small-town pace. Duck and its beaches have been lauded by The Travel Channel and other national travel sites, and rightfully so. The beaches are wide, clean and relatively uncrowded, due in part to the fact that there are no public beach accesses; renters, homeowners and residents are the only ones allowed convenient beach access in Duck.

One of the main draws of Duck is that you can walk or ride bikes wherever you need to go within town. A multi-use path, safe side streets and a very low speed limit on Duck Road (N.C. 12) make it safe for pedestrians to travel to the beach, to watersports outfitters along Currituck Sound, to the fabulous boardwalk and amphitheater of Duck Town Park or into the commercial section of the village, which includes a wealth of independently owned shops and restaurants connected in a well-planned, pedestrian-friendly layout.

Duck’s oceanfront and semi-oceanfront real estate market offers a blend of large luxury homes and modest beach-style homes, and because of its popularity as a vacation resort, Duck’s vacation rental market is thriving. The town’s residential areas are divided into planned developments and communities, some offering amenities and beach access.
