The area that surrounds Core Sound is visually stunning and a tad haunting. The drive from historic Beaufort to the Blog Cabin home site along route 70 leads one past beautiful expanses of marsh land, shimmering waters, weather-beaten boat docks, clusters of humble beach cottages and an occasional abandoned home, slightly eschew and sinking slowly into the earth yet not quite ready to topple over. You can tell there’s a story here — of a unique fishing and farming culture and a close-knit community of people for whom traditions and family ties run generations deep.
In a new feature, we explore the area and its history, customs and culture. For if you win this home, you will want to immerse yourself immediately and entirely.
