COUNTRY RETREAT ON THE EDGE OF TOWN

Edenton Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Airy, elegant antique with 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, country setting

Come to our farmhouse if you want peace and tranquility on the edge of a pretty little walking town, with day-trip access to Outer Banks beaches (some of the finest in the country) 70 minutes away, and big-city culture and shopping available in Norfolk, VA.

Our Victorian farmhouse is spacious, elegant, light and bright, with classic formal spaces and wonderfully modern ones, too. Enjoy the formal sitting room or sink into the big leather furniture in the family room to watch a movie. Curl up with a good book in the library. Choose whether to eat in the formal dining room or the country breakfast room. Cook in the spacious modern kitchen.

If you have a car rack, put in our canoe or kayak at the town slip on the Albemarle Sound a mile-and-a half down the road or hop on one of our pair of bikes for a country ride. Stroll down the Main Street of Edenton--a scene reminiscent of Mayberry, reflecting Southern graciousness and small-town friendliness. Above all, be sure to settle into our white wicker furniture some afternoon on the wide verandah with a tall sweet tea and a plate of shortbread.

This property would be a wonderful venue for a family reunion or a retreat for several people. It sleeps a maximum of eight in three queen-size beds and two twins.

About Nancy

We are a historian and a harpist who fell in love with Edenton, North Carolina, in 2000, when we bought a retirement lot for way down the road. In the meantime, on one of our annual visits to 'the South's prettiest little town,' we spotted an amazing 4500 sq' farmhouse for sale that was a perfect blend of antique and modern, town and country. We couldn't pass it up, so it has become an unlikely retirement house for two people. We have hosted many groups at the farmhouse, and the word we get back is that it is a perfect place to gather and retreat from one's cares. We love our country retreat, and we'd like to share it with you during those times we are not able to use it!

Nancy purchased this chateau / country house in 2011

Why Nancy chose Edenton

We've spent our professional years in the Boston area, and raised four children there. We love the city, but tire of big-city traffic (Boston drivers!) and the rush of life. Edenton to us represents peace and rest. We really wind down in the country setting and appreciate the Southern character of the town, too. Barbecue and a peanut parade, 85 cent ice cream cones and people greeting us on the streets all add to our enjoyment. In Edenton, we walk, we talk, we read, we dine, we watch movies and listen to music and we leave refreshed!

What makes this chateau / country house unique

We love the personality of this house. It began circa 1890 as a Victorian farmhouse with four or five rooms and grew through the years into 11 rooms, as owners added on or reclaimed porch spaces to create modern areas like a breakfast room and a family room. Each room is different and lovely in its own right. There are still plenty of porches, and from the back porch, you look out on cotton fields (or whatever crop is growing this year). The week after we purchased our farmhouse a beautiful bed and breakfast up in Boston went out of business. We purchased many pieces of their furniture, including a number of items hand painted by Rockport artists.

A large house about a mile from the center of downtown Edenton - in the middle of farmland. Fairly private. An older house that has been updated. Quite large with plenty of room. Owners make every effort to please. Edenton is nice and relaxing. Highly recommended.

Edenton, North Carolina, defines easy Southern charm. The small, historic downtown features 18th-century buildings, including a courthouse on which Colonial Williamsburg modeled its own. There are trolley tours of the architecturally important buildings and a Mayberry-style downtown to enjoy, as well as walks along the peaceful Albemarle Sound. Our 1890 farmhouse is on the outskirts of Edenton, but manages to combine Town and Country perfectly, as cotton fields stretch around the farmhouse on all sides. Settle into the wicker furniture on the wide verandah and retreat from modern life while you savor a simpler past.

If you are up for an adventure, drive 70 minutes to the Outer Banks and enjoy a walk or swim on the beach, followed by a seafood dinner. Or take a drive up to Norfolk, VA, for culture and shopping.
