There are a number of nonconforming structures in Nag's Head, NC. This is one of them. This house sits "IN" the Ablemarle Sound. There are a few of these on the soundside of the Outer Banks. I did a bit of research on this place at the end of Soundside Road in Nag's Head. It has a name, "Stinson Ranch" and several articles on the web about it. Here is one link
This place is listed on the National Historic Registry. Who knew?
I have seen this place painted before by other local artists.
