The unique thing about this house is that it is located on a beautiful waterway and everyone is so friendly. I have never experienced such thoughtful and friendly neighbors. The house is located in a development called Camp Jo Jane and it truly has that feeling. The only difference is that you have a luxurious house with 5 star amenities. You can sit on the deck and see the most beautiful stars that are brighter than anywhere I have ever lived. It is also a very patriotic community and Cherry Point Airforce base is just over the horizon. The summer Sailing camps are very close and just minutes away. The house is set up on two floors with the top floor having most of the living amenities such as the three bedrooms and two baths. The downstairs is set up for entertaining with a large spacious 2nd kitchen and pool table. It also has a full bath downstairs including a shower, sink and toilet. Its perfect for entertaining!
