I was really sad to read on the Town Dock news site that lightning struck the 2007 Coastal Living Idea House at River Dunes in North Carolina late last month, burning it to the ground. It was such a beautiful house! This photo from their website shows all that is left:
Here’s how the house looked a few years ago when it was on display:
“The Nautical Room:”
Bedroom with Hanging Beds:
Looking through these photos seriously makes me want to cry.
The house was reportedly on the market at the time of the fire for $3 million and was empty. No one was hurt, and the surrounding buildings were saved. It only took about 30 minutes for it to burn entirely to the ground.
The House on Fire:
Was anyone lucky enough to take the tour when it was open to the public? You can see all the rooms and take the virtual tour at Coastal Living. Read more about the fire and see more photos at Town Dock and on the Historical Concepts Facebook page. (Thanks to Maggy for the info!)
