About This Image

This unique home kept eluding me as I had to grab it while we were driving. The "matte" is of the Atlantic revving up before all the waterspouts and Ophelia - I rather suspect that the cars are half-submerged in water by now after the storm did her damage along North Carolina's Outer Banks this past week

Widow's walks were indeed popular along the Atlantic - not only for Whalers' wives, but other sea-faring loves too. Alandra, this one's unusual in that it's look comes from our lovely lighthouses, the vast majority are mainly a low-walled flat deck at the top peak of the roof, reached from an inner landing. When I reach Roy I'll find out if this home still stands - if it does, it's advertised as a rental unit - wouldn't it be fun to be able to see both the Atlantic Ocean and Pamlico Sound at the same time?

Beautiful job, Vicki. I hope this home has not been damaged. It is beautiful.

This house sure has great character. Didn't the widow's walk go back to the whaling days?Nicely photographed for posterity.

wonderful heritage house, - am fascinated by those Widows' Walks, Vicki, had never seen or heard of them til recently - am wondering if it's an Atlantic Coast architectural idea/design?? You'd think it would also be seen on the coasts in England, - but have never heard of them or seen them there, must check. Reminds me of the movie "House of Sand and Fog", for some reason. Really like the "rope border". neat.
