Property Description

This is truly a rare and exciting opportunity to own a unique piece of history. One of only 3 public buildings constructed by the WPA(Works Project Administration) as part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s “New Deal”, this special property is located on Historic Roanoke Island in the sweet Town of Manteo, NC. The building became Tudorized as the town sought to promote its English heritage and become a tourist destination. This property served as the Manteo Firehouse from 1941 until 1990 when the current Roanoke Island Fire Department was built in 1990. It has been privately owned since 1991. Located just steps away from the planned Town Common, this property boasts renovated and well maintained living quarters on the top floor...a large open space that is a blank canvas awaiting a creative buyer who can reconfigure and design on an historic scale befitting the origins of this property. Add some walls and increase the number of bedrooms or perhaps a beach or artsy theme is desirable...the large workshop is a craftsman's dream and the HUGE garage bays make a statement of their own! Oh, the POSSIBILITIES!! Manteo is the county seat of Dare County. Each year an estimated 5 Million people visit the Outer Banks and flock to the Island to experience the North Carolina Aquarium, Fort Raleigh-birth place of Virginia Dare(first English born child), The Island Farm, The Pea Island Cookhouse Museum and Festival Park to learn about it’s rich history. Downtown has plenty of restaurants serving local faire and ice cream and antique shops. Many people boat in and park at the dock for a day on the waterfront! Imagine the possibilities of owning such a unique property in Historic Downtown Manteo. It would make a great second or vacation home and the bottom level can be converted to make awesome additional living space(2433SF). It can also make a great retail, restaurant space, artist studio/workshop, Yoga studio, furniture workshop with loft living or a trendy downtown brewery pub or distillery! We have some extremely talented architects, interior designers and contractors on the Outer Banks of North Carolina who would love to explore your ideas. Historic Roanoke island is an incredible place to live, work and play. Enjoy leisurely walks on quaint, tree-lined streets or take a bike ride along the Crepe Myrtle accented main corridor. Come for a visit and stay for a lifetime…Invest in a Way of Life!
