The Castle on Silver Lake, Ocracoke Island, North Carolina


Offered at $4,500,000 Furnished

The Castle on Silver Lake, a treasured landmark on the National Register of Historic Places, beautifies North Carolina’s Outer Banks on remote Ocracoke Island—where legend has it that pirate Blackbeard, sailing Queen Anne’s Revenge, died in naval battle in 1718 and where wild ponies descended from Spanish galleon survivors still roam encircled by 16 miles of undeveloped beaches amid what has become a sportfisherman’s paradise. Once the private retreat of an industrialist, the Castle, today operating as a Bed & Breakfast, delights guests with warm cypress-clad snuggeries and 11 bedrooms with 12 baths enjoying stunning harbor views and private harbor and pool access, pier, and boat dock.
