Property History
Constructed in 1941 by the WPA under President Roosevelt as the Town of Manteo Fire Station but sold in 1991 to a private owner who renovated it to use as a vacation residence.

 
Property Description
This is truly a rare and exciting opportunity to own a unique piece of history. One of only 3 public buildings constructed by the WPA (Works Project Administration) as part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's “New Deal”, this special property is located on Historic Roanoke Island in the sweet Town of Manteo, NC. The building became Tudorized as the town sought to promote its English heritage and become a tourist destination.

This property served as the Manteo Firehouse from 1941 until 1990 when the current Roanoke Island Fire Department was built in 1990. It has been privately owned since 1991. It boasts renovated and well maintained living quarters on the top floor...a large open space that is a blank canvas awaiting a creative buyer who can reconfigure and design on an historic scale befitting the origins of this property. Perhaps a beach or artsy theme is desirable...the large workshop is a craftsman's dream and the HUGE garage bays make a statement of their own! Oh, the POSSIBILITIES!!

Dare County is the 4th richest county in North Carolina and home to the Wright Brother's "Miracle At Kitty Hawk". It is a highly popular tourist destination with visitors contributing over a Billion dollars annually to our local economy! Manteo is the county seat, the bed of local history and is situated equidistant from Raleigh, NC and Virginia Beach, VA. Each year an estimated 5 Million people visit the Outer Banks and flock to the Island to experience the North Carolina Aquarium, Fort Raleigh-birth place of Virginia Dare(first English born child), The Island Farm, The Pea Island Cookhouse Museum and Festival Park to learn about it's rich history. Downtown has plenty of restaurants serving local faire and ice cream and antique shops. Many people boat in and park at the dock for a day on the waterfront! Imagine the possibilities of owning such a unique property in Historic Downtown Manteo. It would make a great second or vacation home and it may be possible to finish the bottom level to make awesome additional living space. It can also make a great retail or restaurant space with loft living or a trendy downtown brewery or distillery! We have some extremely talented architects, interior designers and contractors on the Outer Banks of North Carolina who would love to explore your ideas.

Historic Roanoke island is an incredible place to live, work and play. Enjoy leisurely walks on quaint, tree-lined streets or take a bike ride along the Crepe Myrtle accented main corridor. Come for a visit and stay for a lifetime…Invest in a Way of Life!

 
Additional Notes
Building has an additional 2433SF of space on the bottom level that can be converted to living space or commercial use (retail/restaurant, brewery pub, brewery or distillery).
