Buxton Real Estate
The town’s beacon shines bright 187 feet above the ground, welcoming you into the town of Buxton. The Cape Hatteras lighthouse is a symbol of the town, a historic place that moves slowly to adapt, the lighthouse was moved in 1999 but the lighthouse itself and the town maintain their original charm. Buxton remains the widest and highest part of Hatteras Island so naturally it’s home to a large residential population, many who have lived here for multiple decades.
The town maintains is simple vacation paradise vibe- though the roads have been paved, the small-town charm remains. Clapboard restaurants, bakeries and Conner’s Red and White Supermarket cater to locals and visitors alike and are sure to greet you by name. The main draw of the town remains surfing and fishing and spending lazy afternoons on the porch.
