Well we did it ! Hill Cottage sold !




After many amazing years and tons of great family memories we sold our rental house. It was the perfect house for us at the time, Emily grew up here in Corolla and it helped shape her into the city girl / country girl she has become. The family that bought the house has some young kids that I hope will also love growing up here. Hopefully the deal will close in a couple of weeks without a hitch.

I'd love to thank Will and all the great people on this forum who have offered advice and experience. Several members here have become meaningful life long friends whom mean the world to Suzi, Emily and I.

We would also like to thank the management and the entire staff at Twiddy & Co for being the best management company out there, and a very special thanks to Martha Springer who is without a doubt the best Realtor in the business. Martha has been with us since she helped us find this house 14 years ago and she helped us find the buyers for it now, in addition to a few other deals along the way.

Lastly I wanted to mention that we are enjoying becoming part of the Swan Beach and the 4x4 neighborhoods since buying our house there 3 years ago. These birds up here are clearly of a different feather, and we love them for that......... too much pavement clouds your vision !

RE: Well we did it ! House sold




Are you still going to live with the horses in the 4 wheel drive area? Really love when you post the pixs.

Yes we are ! We don't rent the Swan Beach house so we are going to take a little break from the beach house rental biz while we plan our next project.


RE: Well we did it ! Hill Cottage sold !




Congratulations on your next chapter! I'm sure the new family will enjoy Hill Cottage as much as you did. I'm one of those people that have always looked at houses and wished the walls could talk...always curious about the lives and history of a place, and the idea of the next family moving in with the same excitement as the prior family. Thumbs up Thumbs up


RE: Well we did it ! Hill Cottage sold !




I always say it hasn't sold until it closes. You have another month for that so good luck, looks like you made it through the due diligence period. Aren't those fun! Thumbs down

Truer words were never spoken Tim, you just never know what might happen.
At this point we are so close to the start of the season I wouldn't be completely unhappy if the deal fell apart Big grin


RE: Well we did it ! Hill Cottage sold !




Congrats ish. Hope you have many more great times in the new house.

Congrats, Ish!

It’s kinda ironic, a few years ago I very nearly booked Hill Cottage for a week. I remember going through the pictures on Twiddy.

Ultimately my mom came up with a bucket of money and we ended booking OF.

Good looking house there, sir

I have had only 3-4 fall apart after the due diligence period is over so you are on the home stretch, One was my rental home but luckily the cash buyer decided he did want it and it closed 5 days later = WHEW!

All the best with the new home. The VOH will miss you.


RE: Well we did it ! Hill Cottage sold !




Trust all goes smoothly with the closing. The Hill Cottage was a beautiful sight in a sea of much sameness.


RE: Well we did it ! Hill Cottage sold !




Congratulation! I am not surprised that it sold. When ever we drove by that home, I would tell my wife, "That is what a beach house looks like."


RE: Well we did it ! Hill Cottage sold !




Congratulations to your and Suzi. We are glad to see that you will still be in the OBX area and hope you enjoy living in the 4 X 4 area.

It's so true, and that's exactly why we bought it on the spur of the moment during a springtime trip in 2006. We had driven by and admired it for years before that.

That's true..... or this ! Can you tell we don't like to stray too far from an Old Nags Head design ??? Embaressed smiley

Hopefully we can talk you two into coming up the beach for lunch sometime this year? (I can pick you up on the pavement if you like Big grin )

Love it.


RE: Well we did it ! Hill Cottage sold !




Well it's done !

Suzi and I spent a few long days cleaning out the garage and owners closets, and with mixed feelings we closed the door for the last time this past Monday.

We left the new owners pics of the house from 2006, a very strong booking season ? and s few other things in the owners closet we think they will find useful.

We hope they have as many great years in that house as we did.
