  7. I hope they don't do the hack job on this floor plan that they did on the 2012 floor plan. However, the overall footprint is very much the same as the last one. Let's pray they've found a better architect for this reno. It'd be a shame to waste another 1700 sq ft (+/-) retreat, especially in such an awesome location. I'll bet the humidity in that place is killer. I'm interested to see what kind of moisture resistant materials they'll be using. Same as the dream home in South Carolina???

      Not to worry-someone always finds out where the home is:) I am surprised someone hasn't already stated the address and posted pics?:) It never stays a mystery for too long-we have very good slueths that blog:)

    • Am I allowed to say where it is? Can I give hints? The Crystal Coast describes the whole area. New Bern is about an hour and a half away. So it must be … B)

    • May I ask you to confirm the address as 448 Seashore Drive? From info, maps and real estate transfers…that's what I found…so beautiful Alicia! It must have been wonderful growing up with such wondrous nature around you. I'd love to hear more….

    • I'm not going to say no! That's some pretty good detective work! B)

    • Thank You, Alicia! I might be able to sleep tonight !…until "Sandy aka FrankenStorm" comes knocking on our door. The winds and rain have just begun here in SE Penna. Got the barn and horses secured and just praying we don't sustain damage like we did last year with Irene! Hoping and praying everyone in Sandy's path stays safe and secure!

      QHMom on October 28, 2012 at 9:27 pm
    • Good luck with Sandy! I know what you mean about Irene last year – that's the hurricane that tossed the dock around and popped a lot of the cedar shakes of the house. It even knocked over a few of the hundred-year-old cedar trees on the property! Best wishes during the storm! And especially for your horses!!

  9. I was looking thru the the pictures again and noticed the creative bathroom vanity in #42, the whistle on the light in the bedroom #25, and the seatrunks in the bedroom picture 53. If these walls could talk what would they say. What brought the Robinson family to NC? What a great amount of history this house has. Can't wait to find out more!<3:)
