I heard they moved it from where I last found it...on the beach in Miro beach. Where is it now?

Oh, um, I don't really know. I meant that I was in the town. I haven't seen the building or the movie, although I sold many of the books when I worked in a bookstore. If I had known I would have looked for it!
It is a good thing they moved it, looks like the water was reaching the house at times. I still haven't seen where they moved Hatteras light either! I see it, but I haven't noticed the road leading to it.

*Chuckles* No. This was taken a few years ago when it was still down on the Miro beach. I believe it has been moved...

I love the starkness of it. It's just sort of like, BLAM! IN YOUR FACE! But at the same time, it's subdued. It has very clean cut lines and is very beautiful.

Yikes! Looks like a movie set or something... Too surreal to be any habitable...

It's such a gorgeous house, I heard that it's been bought, moved, and fixed up and can be rented out now. Gotta say, I'm jealous. Dream house right there, hands down. :heart:

Yeah...I do not know where they took it? Any ideas? is it still in Rodanthe?

Yup, they just moved it about a mile south I think. It's still in Rodanthe though, it just needed to be relocated because the beach had been eroded to such an extent that the waves were hitting beneath the house.

I saw this picture and I thought: American house.. Guess I was right :P
I love the roughness and grainy texture of it; the way the colours (or shades of grey if you like) seems to not simply flow into each other.
And an then it's an awesome motive too ;)

It was beached in Rodanthe, North Carolina...just sort of sitting out there on the sane. What a shame that it has been removed...

I love this house! I love odd shaped windows, round, half moons, mismatched walls, dormers, anything besides just a squared structure. This one is full of intrigue and originality. Is it from the movie "Nights In Rodanthe" with Gere and Lane? NM, I read the comments and you said Yes you think it is. Is there a history on the house itself? I sometimes wonder with these really old houses right on the beach so close to the water, if maybe many many years previously the beach was further out, the water not so close -- but that time and erosion has reclaimed much of the land and sand and placed the house's foundation practically drinking the salt water. Or if people actually took the chance and built it right there, come hell or high water.

The house was more or less "beached" in Rodanthe, North Carolina...just sort of siting in the middle of the beach. It was used in the movie "Nights in Rodanthe", but was taken down after the film was made. It's a shame...fantastic place!

This may be a silly question, but did you get to go inside? I would be SO jealous then.

Spooky! I like it. The open space at the bottom the photo really makes it more interesting- if that makes sense. Good composition.
