The romantic movie “Nights in Rodanthe” is a movie, featuring Richard Gere, that was shot from this very house in North Carolina. It was originally built in the 1980s; and, at that time, had plenty of beach area between the house and the beach; in fact, 400 ft. of it. Over the years, storms, hurricanes, and erosion wreaked havoc on the beach; and eventually, the house was literally sitting in the water. After the movie was made in 2008, the house was condemned by the city. But then a couple that loved the movie tremendously wanted to purchase it and try to save it. They successfully bought it, had it moved over a short distance, renovated it and is now using it as a romantic vacation rental.
