too many bedrooms = no easy solution

Mini-hotel, beach box, mansion–there are a lot of names thrown at the supposedly single family homes with 20+ bedrooms being built on the Outer Banks, the latest of which is a more than 13,000 square foot home in Kill Devil Hills. There’s a lot of local opposition, but Michelle Wagner’s piece on the Outer Banks Voice explores why stopping the megabox beachfront homes from being built is so difficult.

“The rising number of mega-mansions being built along the Kill Devil Hills oceanfront has prompted town officials to consider what, if any, restrictions they need to enact to control their sprawl.

Town commissioners and the Planning Board met during an August workshop to begin discussions, and staff is expected to provide guidance next month on how to proceed.

The move comes on the heels of about a dozen or so homes being built in the municipality over the last three years that have between 12 and 24 bedrooms, with the largest being 13,572 square feet.”
