"What's in a Beach House name?".....is a great question...and one i've been trying to answer for close to 4 years. I purchased a home in the Currituck Club a few years ago and left the name "Sugar Shack". My property manager confirmed it causes confusion with rental guests if you change the name of the home. That being said, "Sugar" is a play on the last name of the prior owner. Prior to that, the name of the home was "Chip Shot" in relation to the golf course that is located within the Currituck Club.
For the past few years, I have been trying to dream up a new name. For quite some time i favored "The Alchemist's Sound". The house is on the Currituck Sound. And for those of you have read "The Alchemist", well, my life's journey has led me to exactly where I've always belonged- The Outer Banks . Unfortunately, the name "The Alchemist's Sound" has been met with A LOT of resistance. Some say it's too hard to pronounce and some say it's too cerebral. That name just resonates with me...for so many reasons. I do have a back up ..."Imagine". Now, that's a concept that resonates with everyone!
