Buxton Real Estate
You may know the village of Buxton, NC as the home of the famous swirling-striped Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, the tallest lighthouse in the US. Buxton is also home to a nationally popular surf fishing spot known as Cape Point. It is a large sweeping sand bar that stretches farther out into the Atlantic than any other point on the Outer Banks, getting you close to the fish.
Buxton Woods is a large expanse of natural maritime forest that dominates this portion of Hatteras Island. Many white-tail deer call this protected area home, and it is not uncommon to see them in broad daylight while visiting the lighthouse grounds.
Residents and visitors alike take advantage of the unique weather and topography surrounding the village of Buxton. Just north of the village is an area along the western edge of Highway 12 known as Canadian Hole, after the area’s popularity with visitors from the north. When the lakes of Canada and the northern United States are still frozen in the late winter and early spring, athletes who enjoy kiteboarding and windsurfing flock to the area for some great watersports adventure. It’s a hotspot all year round.
