Welcome to the Poteskeet Drive Neighborhood. The Poteskeet Drive Neighborhood consists of the houses that center around Poteskeet Drive in the heart of the Town of Duck in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The Town of Duck was incorporated as a town in 2002 and recently celebrated its 10th anniversary. On the Outer Banks, Duck is north of Southern Shores, Kill Devil Hills, Kitty Hawk and Nags Head and south of Corolla. However, the Town of Duck (or as we also like to say, Duck Village) is a smaller, more relaxed, family friendly community acclaimed for its fun shops and restaurants and activities for kids and adults. At Duck Road, Poteskeet Drive also leads directly into the new Duck Park on the Sound which contains two new amphitheaters used for scheduled Summer entertainments and for the Fall Duck Jazz Festival, along with the new, quite extensive Duck Sound Boardwalk. At the other end of Poteskeet Drive is the neighborhood’s access ramp to the beach on the Atlantic Ocean.
The Poteskeet neighborhood consists of about 72 houses along the quiet street of Poteskeet Drive and a variety of connecting cul-de-sacs. About half of the houses are directly on Poteskeet Drive and the other half on the cul-de-sacs: nine of the houses are on the ocean front. Many of the houses are vacation rentals but several are occupied year round by their owners. Poteskeet Drive is a quiet street that connects to the heart of the small Town of Duck, noted for its shops and restaurants and activities for kids and adults. The neighborhood was originally laid out around 1980 and many of the houses started construction in the early 1980s when there was not yet much development in the area of Duck Village. The picture below shows the house at 130 Poteskeet Drive soon after it was built in 1983 (note how little construction there was at the time).
