#2. Elizabeth City, NC

4 beds, 2.5 baths, 1,904 square feet, $185,000

Listing agent: Nick Bridgers, Howard Hanna Real Estate Services

Elizabeth City sits on the Pasqoutank River as it widens into the Albermarle Sound, making it a waterfront community just a 45-minute drive to Outer Banks beaches, but without the beach town prices. This historic 1940 four-square has wood floors, an updated kitchen, and built-in glass-fronted cabinets in the dining room. And it’s just a mile from downtown, where you can enjoy a crab cake sandwich at the Island Creek Grill before watching the boats go by at Waterfront Park
