RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The state Court of Appeals says a massive house along the Outer Banks in Currituck County is not a single-family dwelling.

The Virginian-Pilot of Norfolk, Virginia, reports (https://bit.ly/28ZZn7w) the unanimous ruling by a three-judge panel overturns decisions by the state Superior Court and Currituck County boards and staff.

In a decision issued Tuesday, the Court of Appeals said each of the three sections of the house located north of Corolla is an individual building. Each section is about 5,000 square feet.

Neighbors contend that the house isn’t a single-family dwelling in accordance with the county’s unified development ordinance. The Currituck County attorney says the either the ordinance or the house must be modified.

Because the decision was unanimous, the case can’t be automatically appealed to the state Supreme Court.
