ACCOUNT EXECUTIVE:

If you haven’t figured it out already, this section of the North Carolina’s southern coast is a fantastic place to live, work and play. Some of the area’s advantages include the availability of outdoor activities, easy access to unique islands, beaches and natural areas, and a mild climate in which to enjoy them all. When I arrived in Brunswick County more than 10 years ago, the growth in this area was in its infancy. Fast forward a decade and this is one of hottest relocation areas in the country. One thing you’ll learn when reading the resident showcases in this publication is that many of the area’s new residents are folks who got sick and tired of Northern winters and were drawn to the warm weather, laidback lifestyle and well-planned developments of coastal North Carolina. I can’t say I blame them! This is our second issue of Brunswick New Homes & Real Estate. In previous years, we had two separate editions of this guide, one for North Brunswick and one for South Brunswick. Last year we decided to combine the two and supplement it into sections of the county for you. We have worked hard over the last several months compiling statistics, writing stories, plotting subdivisions and taking photos with the intention of providing useful information for buyers and sellers in Brunswick County. I hope you like what you read, and I welcome any feedback regarding this publication. You will see that the real estate market in this area is strong and that Brunswick County provides a wonderful place for you to retire, relocate or reinvent yourself. Happy reading!

BRUNSWICK NEW HOMES & REAL ESTATE


[ WITHIN COUNTY LINES ]

TAKE A LOOK AROUND Sprawling between metropolitan Wilmington and the Myrtle Beach Grand Strand, Brunswick County offers a dizzying array of recreational, business and cultural opportunities. Individual in their character, the county’s 19 municipalities welcome newcomers from all over the country, making this consistently one of the fastest-growing counties in the United States. Still, the population is small, only 131,000 in a land mass that’s among the largest in the state. STORY BY TERESA A. McLAMB

Old Baldy, is the oldest lighthouse still standing in North Carolina, can be visited by taking the Bald Head Island passenger ferry from Southport.

The county was formed in 1764 but was settled many years before. Many natives descend from those early pioneers, who were Scottish, Irish, English and French. The first county seat was Brunswick Town on the west bank of the Cape Fear River near present-day Southport. It was founded by Maurice Moore, son of Governor James Moore. In 1779 the county seat was moved to Lockwood Folly and in 1808 to Smithville (Southport), where it remained for 167 years before it was moved to its present location in Bolivia. As the region has grown, newcomers have brought with them

diversity in language, culture and religion that is reflected in increasing use of the Spanish language and restaurants boasting Italian and Asian cuisine and Jamaican specialties along with traditional seafood dishes. Worshipers can choose from interdenominational services on the beach strand, Buddhist ceremonies at their temple in the community of Supply or traditional observances at numerous Protestant and Catholic churches. Novant Health, New Hanover Regional Medical Center and Dosher Memorial Hospital as well as many specialty groups have full-service healthcare facilities in the county.

[ WITHIN COUNTY LINES ] SO MUCH TO SEE AND DO

TOWNS TIED TO THE RIVERS & WATERWAY

Perhaps the greatest reason of all to be in Brunswick County is the lifestyle. Thirty golf courses are in the environs and another 70-plus are within a few minutes’ drive. Fishing, sailing, shelling, horseback riding, surfing, water skiing, birding, pickleball, antique collecting and beach walking are other favorite pastimes. Nature’s glory may be one of the most exciting attractions in the county. Along the coast and inland rivers, estuaries and swamps, the region’s wildlife is thriving. From brown pelicans to songbirds to bald eagles, the birds tell a story of ecological preservation combined with human development. Four species of endangered sea turtles — loggerhead, green sea turtle, leatherback and the extremely rare Kemp’s Ridley sea turtle — have been laying their eggs on Brunswick’s shores for thousands of years. Hatchlings emerge 50 to 85 days later, providing a thrilling silent show as they find their way to the sea under the full moon. Outdoor enthusiasts may want to trek into the Green Swamp Preserve, a 15,000-acre Nature Conservancy preserve located northwest of Supply. Known for its dense vegetation and wildlife, the swamp is home to endangered red-cockaded woodpeckers, black bears and bobcats. The vast array of plant life includes 14 species of carnivorous plants, including Venus flytraps, which grow only in this part of the world. Before attempting to go into the Green Swamp, contact The Nature Conservancy for a map and ask about local guides. Life here isn’t all fun and games, however. The county boasts five business and industrial development parks and a strong economic development community working tirelessly to bring new businesses and jobs. Students in the region enjoy modern classroom and athletic facilities from pre-school through college.

Beginning with licensed childcare facilities, educational opportunities continue through the public and private secondary schools. Post-secondary education is available through Brunswick Community College (BCC), which awards associate degrees, certificates and diplomas. Programs include aquaculture, basic law enforcement, business, medical professions and a college transfer program. Also on the BCC campus is the 1,500-seat Odell Williamson Auditorium, which hosts concerts, touring Broadway shows, local events and more. Many Brunswick County locations have been backdrops for television and film. Locals often have the opportunity to perform as extras in these productions, which bring an added dimension to the county’s economic growth. While the county has many small unincorporated communities with curious names, such as Ash, Half Hell, Longwood, Red Bug, etc., it has 19 incorporated towns, each with a distinctive flair and personality. If you want to learn more about Brunswick County, there are local lifestyle magazines that promote the area. Pick up North Brunswick Magazine for the Leland area or if you’re visiting the southern end of the county, South Brunswick Magazine. You can also read more at LifeInBrunswickCounty.com.

A stroll down Southport's old yacht basin offers waterfront dining, fresh seafood, ice cream, and great views of the Intracoastal Waterway.

BELVILLE Once a tiny community in the northeastern section of the county, Belville is a rapidly growing town. Part of the town’s vision includes incorporation of its Brunswick River waterfront as a recreational and educational center on 150 acres that were once part of 280-acre Belville Plantation owned by the family of Daniel Lindsay Russell, who served as government of North Carolina from 1897 to 1901. This riverfront area includes a public boat ramp, picnic facilities, walking trails, shoreline fishing and a playground. You can also buy fresh seafood from Thursday to Sunday compliments of SeaView Crab Company. They have an open air location there to serve locals and visitors alike. Incorporated in 1977, the Town of Belville includes more than 3,000 acres. The town center includes several small businesses as well as shopping centers, real estate, golf courses and other businesses. SHALLOTTE The commercial hub of the region, and one of the earliest areas settled, Shallotte grew on the banks of the Shallotte River and incorporated in 1899. River pilots navigated the winding river from the ocean into the center of town in the early 1800s, bringing food and supplies to settlers from miles around. Strategically located on U.S. Highway 17, which runs from Maine to Florida, Shallotte serves as the trade center for surrounding communities and beaches. Shallotte has a variety of fine shops, supermarkets, shopping centers, a microbrewery, professional offices and restaurants. National hotel chains have facilities along Highway 17 bypass in Shallotte. The town also has aggressive plans to develop its waterfront. Free concerts are held on Thursdays in downtown’s Mulberry Park, which also hosts a farmer’s market on Saturdays in the summer.

ST. JAMES Begun in the 1980s as a private subdivision off N.C. Highway 211, the town of St. James was incorporated in 1999. Built along the Intracoastal Waterway and near Lockwood Folly River, the town has welcomed more than 4,500 residents from around the country. Their dedication to their community is visible in their award-winning service club and several other organizations that provide many hours of volunteer service to the community and to causes dear to residents. St. James features four golf courses, a full-service marina, tennis courts, swimming pools and a beach club on Oak Island.

Southport’s position at the mouth of the Cape Fear River where it flows into the Atlantic made it a logical choice for pre-colonial settlers. A few miles upriver, Brunswick Town and Fort Anderson were founded in 1726 and burned by the British in 1776. These ruins are vital to the state’s archeological history. Long ago, the town of Southport became a favored stop for steamboat and schooner captains ferrying goods between Wilmington and the Atlantic Ocean, as well as for wealthy Wilmingtonians seeking a rest from city life. Today, the riverfront boasts Victorianera homes along with antiques shops, art galleries, restaurants, ancient oak trees and more modern structures such as Dosher Memorial Hospital, a four-bay fire station and numerous commercial centers. A stop at the Whittler’s Bench on the

SOUTHPORT

Southport riverfront allows visitors to view Bald Head Island, the Atlantic merging with the Cape Fear and the Intracoastal Waterway. The region’s maritime history is explained at the Southport Maritime Museum on Howe Street; visitors should also stop by the Old Brunswick County Jail and Old Smithville Burying Ground. A short ferry ride from here is Fort Fisher State Park, the last stronghold of the Confederacy. The fort was instrumental in protecting the port of Wilmington. It was the largest earthwork fort in the South active during the Civil War. At the ferry landing, you’ll see Price Lighthouse, the last of a string of squat brick sentinels constructed between 1845 and 1851 from Wilmington to the mouth of the Cape Fear River. During the Civil War, Confederate troops used the lighthouse to communicate with officers at Fort Fisher. It was closed in 1867. Southport’s notable charms have made it the backdrop for many film projects, including Nicholas Sparks’ Safe Haven. Tours of local film locations are available. Southport hosts the state’s official Fourth of July Celebration and parade each year. Displaying their sense of humor, residents string together the name of four prominent streets, three named for Colonial figures — Lord, Howe, Dry, I Am. We’ll likely never know the origin, but it’s fun to speculate. Tied to Lockwood Folly River, Varnamtown is north of Shallotte

VARNAMTOWN

on State Road 1245. Roland Varnum, who was likely of Scottish or Irish descent, came to the area from Maine as a cabin boy on a ship in the early 1800s. Many of the local residents, both Varnum and Varnam, are his descendants. The fishing village, only .97 square miles in size, incorporated in 1988, but it retains its charm with homes and businesses shaded by giant live oaks, many near the docks where shrimp boats moor between runs or for maintenance. The importance of the river is celebrated each November at Dixon Chapel United Methodist Church when a thousand or so of their best friends and neighbors show up for a serious oyster roast. To join in, bring a good appetite and your own oyster knife. The southernmost river town is Calabash, originally part of the 48,000-acre grant to Proprietor Landgrave Thomas Smith dated May 13, 1691. Its position on the river and near the Atlantic made it a natural site for Clinton Morris’s oyster roast, the first Calabash restaurant, which opened in a crude shed with a sawdust floor in 1935. Today it is a tourist area, with an abundance of fine restaurants, shops and nearby golf courses. It is home to about 1,800 residents. Summer brings concerts to the town park on Tuesday evenings from 6 until 8:30. Now known as the Seafood Capital of the World, Calabash has an auspicious history of Revolutionary War involvement and presidential visits. During the Revolution,

CALABASH

LIFEINBRUNSWICKCOUNTY.COM

[13]


Isaac Marion, older brother of legendary General Francis “Swamp Fox” Marion, lived in the 1760s-era Boundary House, so known because it sat on what is now the North Carolina-South Carolina state line. George Washington is said to have spent the night nearby at the Vereen family home. General Benjamin Smith, tenth governor of North Carolina, was wounded in a gentlemen’s duel with his cousin in Calabash. Adjoining Calabash, Carolina Shores began as a retirement subdivision but incorporated as a separate town in 1998. This golf community of about 1,500 residents combines an 18-hole golf course, one of the early ones in the area, with patio homes and condominiums. The residents, primarily retirees, are very active in the community.

CAROLINA SHORES

BEACH COMMUNITIES Miles of wide-strand Atlantic Ocean shoreline make the Brunswick County beaches a true paradise for residents and visitors. Known for their cleanliness and family-friendly atmosphere, the beaches’ long-time residents welcome thousands of visitors each year. The state’s oldest remaining lighthouse, Old Baldy, is open for tours on Bald Head Island. Built in 1817, the 90-foot brick structure helped guide ships safely to the mouth of the Cape Fear River until 1935, when it was replaced by a new light at Caswell Beach. Some 100 steps and a wooden ladder lead to the top and a spectacular view of the island, Atlantic Ocean and Cape Fear River. Bald Head Island sits at the mouth of the Cape Fear River where it joins the Atlantic Ocean. Accessible by private ferry from Southport, the village was incorporated in 1985. Its pristine beaches, maritime forest, dune ridge and marsh make it a desirable year-round home for about 200 people and respite for visitors who often fly in to Cape Fear Regional Airport on Oak Island to stay on the island. Amenities include a golf course, a marina, restaurants and shops. Accommodations include cottages as well as bed and breakfast inns. The 12,000-acre island, which includes an 800-acre maritime forest with freshwater lagoons, is being developed with a 15 percent maximum capacity. You can explore the island by bike or golf cart; no cars are allowed.

BALD HEAD ISLAND

[14]

BRUNSWICK NEW HOMES & REAL ESTATE

CASWELL BEACH Across the Cape Fear River from Bald Head is Caswell Beach, a quiet town of about 300 year-round residents situated on the eastern tip of Long Island. A wide selection of condos and singlefamily homes are available to vacationers. Its intentionally limited commercial district includes Oak Island Golf and Country Club. Incorporated in 1975, the town takes its name from Fort Caswell, which was built in 1826 and seized in 1861 by Confederate troops, who held it until 1865. The fort was used in the Spanish American War, World War I and World War II. It now belongs to the N.C. Baptist Assembly, which uses the site as a conference and retreat center. Another attraction of the town is the Oak Island Lighthouse. Activated on May 15, 1958, it is the most brilliant in the nation and second in the world with standard candle-power of 1,400,000 and the capacity of 14,000,000 to 20,000,000 candle-power when needed.

Boasting 70-plus public beach accesses, Oak Island also offers access to the Intracoastal Waterway and Davis Canal for fishing, kayaking and birding. The town has a municipal golf course and several parks and ballfields. Its thriving commercial district includes restaurants, service businesses, real estate sales and rentals and marinas. The town of Oak Island was created with the 1999 merger of Yaupon Beach (named for the native yaupon tree) and Long Beach (named for its expansive beach strand). Like others in the county, its south-facing orientation allows spectacular sunsets over the ocean. The town limits include a commercial district on the mainland approach to the Oak Island Bridge. Some 8,000 year-round residents welcome about 35,000 summertime visitors.

OAK ISLAND

Trailing west across the Lockwood Folly Inlet is Holden Beach, where development began in the 1930s by the Holden family. The Holden family ownership dates to 1756, when Benjamin Holden acquired 100 acres extending from Lockwood Folly Inlet to Bacon Inlet for 50 shillings. The area was a commercial fishing center in the 1920s. The first subdivision map identifying it as Holden Beach Resort was drawn in 1924 by John Holden Jr., the fourth generation to hold the entire property. Today, the Holden family remains prominent in development and government of this family-oriented beach. An elevated two-lane bridge was completed in

1988. Visitors can rent beach cottages, condominiums or motel rooms. The beach’s permanent residents share their celebration of living on the sea through two festivals, A Day at the Docks in March and Festival by the Sea in October. Boat building continues on the mainland side, where shrimping and fishing boats bring their catch to the docks. A fishing pier, fish houses and several charter boats operate in the town. Numerous beach access points are available, including those designated for older and disabled people. Ocean Isle Beach came to life in the early 1950s when a local youth freshly returned from World War II purchased the island. From the beginning, Odell Williamson’s plans were for Ocean Isle to be a quiet family beach. He identified a centralized commercial district that would serve the residents and visitors and planned the remaining portion of the 8-mile-long island to be strictly residential. From its early fish-camp days with access by ferry, the island has grown to incorporate public tennis courts, miniature golf, boat docks, a children’s playground, specialty shops, the Museum of Coastal Carolina, an interdenominational chapel and full-service fishing pier. The island’s annual Fourth of July parade and party is a favorite for residents and visitors. It is also home to the North Carolina Oyster Festival each October.

and restaurants. Economic development continues to be at the forefront, and the town’s economic development group has embraced history, culture and the arts to move it forward. The Leland Cultural Arts Center is a showpiece. Nationally affiliated WWAY-TV (ABC) recently moved its headquarters to Leland. Located on the west convergence of the Brunswick and Cape Fear rivers is Navassa, incorporated in 1977. Navassa first saw life in 1869 when a railroad was built across the Cape fear from Wilmington to the town’s current site. The line helped to connect Wilmington to Charlotte and the interior of South Carolina. Industrious Wilmington merchants secured a deal to ship turpentine products to the West Indies and return with the rail cars loaded with guano (a natural fertilizer). They built the Navassa Guano Factory in 1869. The village that sprung up around the factory was named Navassa by the U.S. Postal Service in 1885. At its heyday, the business employed more than 4,000 workers. The village has seen hard economic times but is on the rebound with recent announcements of new industries moving to the area. The town has a welltrained police department and volunteer fire/ rescue department.

NAVASSA

An airport town park and shopping are on the mainland. Access is by a modern elevated bridge named in honor of Williamson, who served several terms in the North Carolina House of Representatives. Each summer, the town presents free concerts on Friday evenings from 6:30 to 8 pm beside town hall. Bring a chair and your dancing shoes. SUNSET BEACH Like other Brunswick County beaches, Sunset Beach was developed over several decades by local residents with a long history in the area. Father and son Mannon and Ed Gore laid out the first lots on the beach. Their influence is still felt in the beauty of the small island community accessible by high-rise bridge from the mainland near Sea Trail golf community, which is also part of the incorporated town. Residents and visitors enjoy a public boat ramp, programs at the Ingram Planetarium, a variety of restaurants and shops. The southernmost inhabited island in North Carolina, 3-mile-long Sunset Beach was incorporated in 1963. Government offices and more residents are situated on the mainland side, which includes golf courses, restaurants and additional accommodations. Perhaps one of Sunset’s greatest charms is that it provides the only land access (at extreme low tide) to North Carolina’s southernmost undeveloped barrier island, Bird Island.

INLAND COMMUNITIES BOLIVIA The seat of government in Brunswick County, Bolivia is believed to have been named for the South American country from which crates of guano were shipped through this town to other towns. A post office has been in operation here since 1892. Settlement by immigrants of European ancestry, mostly farmers and timber men, began here in the early 19th century. Incorporated in 1911, the town became home to the county government complex in 1977. Just outside the incorporated area is the campus of Brunswick Community College and Brunswick Early College High School.

A small community approximately 12.5 miles west of Wilmington, Sandy Creek was incorporated in 1988. Situated on 1.3 square miles of land, the town supports approximately 400 people committed to retaining the small hometown feeling they enjoy.

SANDY CREEK

LELAND Another of Brunswick County’s historically small communities, Leland has been bursting at the seams for several years. With the influx of newcomers to masterfully developed golf course communities, the accompanying commercial centers have followed. Incorporated in 1989, the town has large shopping centers with national and regional brand stores, professional offices

NORTHWEST Incorporated as Brunswick County’s 18th town in 1993, Northwest has about 750 residents and is managed by a mayor, city clerk and five council members, a fire station and police department. Its name is a simple reference to its location in northwestern Brunswick County. The primarily agricultural community adjoins Columbus County and measures 6.04 square miles.

Named for the more than 50 natural and manmade lakes in the town, Boiling Spring Lakes was incorporated in 1961. In addition to a small commercial center, the town enjoys a golf course and a disc golf course. Although parts of the Boiling Spring Lakes are still recovering from Hurricane Florence, residents can enjoy its many walking trails, parks and playgrounds. Annual events include Spring Fling at the Lake, a golf tournament, 9/11 Memorial Bike Run, a fall festival and Christmas activities. BSL, as it’s known, has an incorporated area of 23.3 square miles (16,000 acres) centered along N.C. Highway 87. Approximately 6,800 residents live in the town limits.

THE BLUFFS ON THE CAPE FEAR — Southern Charm on the Waterfront —

By Denice Patterson

The winding, lamp-lit drive to the immaculate white gates of The Bluffs on the Cape Fear harks of centuries past, when stately rice plantations lined the river banks of Brunswick County. Illuminated with natural gas, the flickering lamps are beacons home. They’re just one of the reasons that The Bluffs on the Cape Fear stands apart from other local developments. Offering quarter-acre to full-acre home sites, The Bluffs on the Cape Fear is a private, 600-acre preserve just 15 minutes from downtown Wilmington. Situated at 32 feet above sea level, The Bluffs is elevated well-above flood stage and is a much sought-after location along the Cape Fear River. Doug Talbot created the lushly landscaped neighborhoods and natural preserves with privacy, tranquility and woodland beauty in mind, but he added the modern conveniences of natural gas and city water and sewer. Four quaint wooden bridges span meandering streams, and a half-dozen ponds beckon to migrating waterfowl. The Bluffs has placed an emphasis on style and craftsmanship, privacy and nature. In fact, each home site backs up to a natural area, including ponds, mixed hardwood and pine forests and even the Cape Fear River. Three local builders are the featured builders here: Legacy Homes by Bill Clark, Arthur Rutenberg Homes and Southern Pines Homes offer elegant and luxurious custom home designs. Ashly Adler is a sales executive at The Bluffs. “The popular low-country designs range from 1,800 to 5,000 square feet, with sweeping front porches and room for twoto three-car garages,” she says. “And the rolling topography lends itself to walkout basement designs in several locations.” Amenities include a clubhouse with an indoor and outdoor kitchen and a resortstyle pool next to a 6-acre fishing and recreation lake with a small beach, pier and kayak launch. Kayaks are included. There is a children’s playground, a bocce ball court and a tennis court that converts to two pickleball courts. There are also several nature and walking trails throughout the development. “The riverfront is a highlight of the development,” Adler says. A 6-foot wide, 600-foot-long boardwalk stretches from a parking area through the stands of towering cypress, loblolly pines and dogwoods, down to the future 50-slip marina. “From here, residents can boat to downtown Wilmington in less than 30 minutes,” she adds. Development is underway for a 2-acre riverside park with an outdoor pavilion for cooking and entertainment, accessible by bicycle, car and walking trails. Clearly, The Bluffs has placed an emphasis on outdoor living and recreation. “One of the favorite amenities is our private beach club,” Adler says. “It is one of only three private clubs on Oak Island.” Located on the second row, the club offers spacious porches, a full-sized kitchen, a living and dining area and bathrooms with showers, all of it tailored to relaxation after a day at the beach. The Bluffs offers a true waterfront experience from riverside to oceanside to pondside to poolside.

Celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2018, Brunswick Forest is a lively, 4,500-acre, amenity-rich retreat where community connection and active living are always on the Get Connected calendar. As the only coastal North Carolina community deemed one of the top 50 best-selling masterplanned communities nationwide, Brunswick Forest is a pristine example of a community designed with a diversity of residents in mind. Located just minutes from downtown Wilmington over the Cape Fear River Bridge, Brunswick Forest boasts eight unique neighborhoods with housing options ranging from low-maintenance patio homes and upscale townhomes to spacious golf course estates and charming waterside bungalows. Brunswick Forest continues to grow with the opening of two new neighborhoods. The Lakes, a West Indies–inspired neighborhood, offers packages from the $400s, and Cypress Point, a charming collection of coastal homes, offers packages from the high $300s. Throughout the community, price points range from the high $200s to $1 million, with premier homesites beginning in the $80s. As Jerry Helms, vice president of sales for Brunswick Forest notes, “We have consistently experienced record growth, year after year. Quite simply, our strategy is to deliver precisely what people desire in a home and community.” For Brunswick Forest residents, this means miles of walking and biking trails winding through lush forests with quaint footbridges over creeks. It means pocket parks and greenspace galore for neighborhood gatherings and events. Two fitness and wellness centers boast indoor and outdoor pools, several exercise and meeting rooms, a splashpad for the kids and tennis and pickleball courts. The fitness and wellness centers offer educational seminars on topics ranging from memoir-writing and interior design to financial planning and self-defense to health-based workshops on hormone replacement therapy, medical weight loss, peripheral neuropathy and the joys of using essential oils. Active living flows through the landscape of Brunswick Forest, with access to everything just a short walk or bike ride away. Residents can traverse Hammock Lake on standup paddleboards, kayaks and canoes, and nearby Town Creek feeds into the Cape Fear River for outings on larger watercraft. In the heart of Brunswick Forest, the Clubhouse at Cape Fear National Golf Club offers karaoke night, trivia night, wine-pairing dinners and a cigar club. Nearby, The Villages of Brunswick Forest serves as a town center with shops, restaurants, service outlets and medical facilities. Residents say they have never been busier, more active or happier in their lives, and the reason is clear — Brunswick Forest provides an endless source of engagement opportunities, from their own Amazing Race inspired by the Emmy Award-winning CBS show, to their annual Westminster-inspired dog show, to pig-pickins and potlucks, to the Cardboard Boat Regatta, to outdoor concerts in Annsdale Park. Residents have access to all common amenities as part of their home ownership and monthly HOA dues — with no need to pay an additional club membership. Those interested in joining the Brunswick Forest community are invited to stop by the Welcome Center or to call for an appointment.

CAMPBELL’S RIDGE

— A New Neighborhood in Leland by Bill Clark Homes — By Lauren Krouse Looking for your next home? There’s a new neighborhood in Brunswick County by Bill Clark Homes — Campbell’s Ridge. Tucked away off of U.S. Highway 17 just minutes from the heart of Leland, Campbell’s Ridge offers 85 homesites, each about a half-acre. “We have been building in Leland for years through our Legacy Homes by Bill Clark division, and we’re so excited to bring Campbell’s Ridge into the mix,” says Kaitlin Cox, marketing coordinator for Bill Clark Homes. With 13 house plans to choose from and countless personalization options inside and out, you can design a home perfectly suited for your needs, from roofing style to window count. “Each home in Campbell’s Ridge will be unique,” Cox says. “By including features that many other builders consider upgrades in the base price of each home, we make it easy to create your dream home without breaking your budget.” This means granite countertops and tile backsplashes in the kitchen, craftsman wainscoting in the foyer and dining rooms, stylish plank flooring throughout the home, fireplaces and many other built-in features. Most importantly, though, the homes are designed to provide space to gather and connect. “As a family builder, we’re constantly making changes to adapt to how families live and how they want to spend their time,” Cox says. “Our floor plans offer a wide range of options but always include the open concept living spaces to bring your family together.” Home/land packages in Campbell’s Ridge start in the mid$200s and come with low HOA dues. Each home is backed by a one-year warranty that ensures it is free from defects in material and workmanship for 12 months following closing, as well as a tenyear Bonded Builders warranty should any structural issues arise. “We’ve been in business for over 40 years, which brings a comfort to our buyers, knowing our commitment to the communities we build,” Cox says. “Our employees put their heart and soul into our homes, and having more than 30 percent of our employees living in a Bill Clark home shows that we believe in our company and product.” More Bill Clark Homes Neighborhoods to Love Bill Clark Homes offers two additional neighborhoods in Brunswick County — The Retreat and Sunset Ridge. The Retreat at Ocean Isle Beach is located just 1 mile from sand and waves of Ocean Isle Beach. Residents are within walking distance of the grocery store, restaurants, shops and the ocean. Colorful homes, lush landscaping, palm tree-lined streets, a lap pool and outdoor cabana and many outdoor activities contribute to the feeling of a real island getaway. The Retreat currently has more than 100 homeowners with 350 total homesites planned for the community. Home/land packages start in the upper $200s, and HOA dues include lawn care and the community pool. Sunset Ridge, 2.5 miles from Sunset Beach and just a quick drive from Myrtle Beach, is one of Bill Clark Homes’ flagship communities. Offering easy access to the beach, the Intracoastal Waterway and many of the area’s best public golf courses, Sunset Ridge offers coastal living at a very affordable price point. A community of 400 total homes, including 100 townhomes, Sunset Ridge has one more phase of single-family homes left to sell. Sunset Ridge is known for its bungalow-style homes and stone accents. The HOA includes lawn care, a community pool and clubhouse, a fitness center and nice walking paths and sidewalks. Home/land packages start in the mid-$200s.

COMPASS POINTE

PHOTOS BY LINDSEY A MILLER

— Resort-Style Amenities Surrounded by Nature —

By Molly Harrison

Compass Pointe is more than just a gorgeous community. Residents of this North Brunswick County development agree that the best part of living here is the lifestyle. They enjoy not only unbelievable amenities but also friendly and fun new neighbors who often become friends. Compass Pointe’s carefully placed resort-style amenities include the brand-new Lazy River, the Resort Oasis Pool and the impressive Grand Lanai, a large clubhouse with lounge seating, TVs, a commercialgrade kitchen for residents to use and the Oasis Bar and Grill. The community also features The Pointe Wellness Center with state-of-theart equipment, spa services and a brand-new indoor pool facility. Add in tennis and pickleball courts, lakes and ponds for fishing and kayaking, miles of walking and biking trails, a dog park, an outdoor amphitheater, an 18-hole golf course, an extensive golf practice facility, a golf pro shop and Latitudes Restaurant (open to the public), and you have a yearround community that feels like a vacation resort. Yet one of the best features of Compass Pointe is its undeveloped natural areas. Among the community’s 2,200 acres is nearly 1,000 acres set aside for nature conservation, including 880 acres of Certified Gold Audubon Signature Sanctuary. Residents find serenity and tranquility in this environment and can enjoy birdwatching, relaxing, quiet walks and star-gazing. Though it feels a like a private getaway, Compass Pointe is a short 10-minute drive from downtown Wilmington, which is rich in history, art, culture, shopping, dining and entertainment. And it’s only a short hop from there to Wrightsville Beach, where seaside walks, surfing or paddleboarding are part of the routine. Compass Pointe currently has approximately 950 existing homes and more than 1,300 home sites sold. The homes in Compass Pointe are built by the area’s top builders and offer quality craftsmanship and practical designs. They are inviting and comfortable with open floor plans and features such as screened porches and patios that allow homeowners to enjoy the pleasant, temperate climate year-round. With choices like low-maintenance villas, cozy cottages and cabanas, Florida-style patio homes and traditional brick homes, there is something to suit every taste and budget.

THE RESERVE AT TOWN CREEK — Laid-Back, Horse-Friendly Country Living —

By Lauren Krouse

Corey Gooden knew exactly what she wanted for her family: a custom-built home with a spacious yard and friendly neighbors. But finding her dream home in the fastest-growing county in North Carolina proved to be harder than she’d expected. “My husband and I had been looking for property around the area for over two years and could never find a place where the houses weren’t on top of each other or where we had the freedom to build what we wanted to build,” Gooden says. “We knew we couldn’t be the only people in Brunswick County looking for this type of community.” When a 35-acre parcel became available, Gooden’s father, Riley Evans, a local developer and general contractor, saw his opportunity. After purchasing the land, he carved out two roads surrounded by mature oaks and pines. Then he divided the property into 10 spacious lots with two cul-de-sacs, and The Reserve at Town Creek was born. The Reserve at Town Creek is an equestrian-oriented, gated community that offers security and room to breathe with 1.5 to 5-acre lots. Perched on George II Highway about 1 mile south of U.S. Highway 17, the neighborhood is just outside of Leland, 20 miles from downtown Wilmington and the seaside town of Southport, and 25 minutes from the Brunswick County beaches. Town Creek Elementary and Middle Schools are right around the corner as well. Families seeking a quiet community can rest easy knowing The Reserve at Town Creek is set at 10 lots, with no plans for further expansion. Gooden says the new neighborhood will provide residents with privacy and freedom for their children to roam and play. “It’s small and quaint, yet you have more space here than you would elsewhere in Brunswick County,” she says. Another benefit lies in the neighborhood’s homeowners’ association, which prides itself in not weighing down residents with overly strict guidelines. “Here, people can live how they want to live, with common-sense rules to protect their property value,” Gooden says. For would-be homeowners, the only building requirements are that homes have a minimum of 2,500 square feet and are not made with vinyl siding in order to retain a refined, upscale aesthetic. Gooden describes her home, the community’s first property, as a traditional-meets-modern farmhouse style. Since The Reserve at Town Creek is a horse-friendly community, homeowners are also allowed one horse per acre with a matching barn. If you’re looking for laid-back country living just a stone’s throw away from Leland, contact Corey Gooden, sales representative, at sales@thereserveattowncreek.com or (910) 874-2630. Lots start at $89K, and HOA fees (which cover streetlights, landscaping at the front of the neighborhood, and road and gate repair) will be about $100 a month. Currently, the property owners are offering a special 10 percent off rate for the purchase of the first lot.

SEACOAST HOMES, LLC

5 Tips to Help You Choose the Right Moving Company

eastcoastmovingllc.com

910-755-2058

USDOT 1172302 MC 469689

DO YOUR RESEARCH Research the moving company. Does it have a legitimate website with reviews? Is it licensed? Look for reviews and visit directory sites. The next step is to check the business out on the Better Business Bureau. This step will help you weed out any illegitimate movers.

ASK THE RIGHT QUESTIONS Which services cost extra and how much are they? Does the company require a deposit? What happens if something is damaged? When you get the answers to these questions, you are not only more armed with the right information, but also have a better idea of the level of transparency communication in the company.

VERIFY MOVING CREDENTIALS Ask for USDOT and MC numbers. You can easily verify these with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Your movers should provide you with a copy of "Your Rights and Responsibilities When You Move." This is federal law, so if they don't give it to you, don't hire them.

GET AN ESTIMATE IN WRITING Carefully review it before you sign anything. You should see an hourly rate, as well as additional costs like a trip charge and supplies. Ask questions if something isn't completely clear.

KNOW WHAT TO AVOID Don't pick movers who do this 1. Quote 20-30% lower than other companies. 2. Seem too eager to get your business. 3. Ask about your budget, then adjusts their estimate to fit. 4. Have poor ratings with Epinions and MovingScam [52]

At Home MEET 10 HOMEOWNERS WHO LOVE CALLING BRUNSWICK COUNTY HOME

Compiled by Sandi Grigg | Photography by Laura Glantz

Back in 1970, when Brunswick County’s population was only around 24,000, most of the people who lived here were born here. But then the word got out about Brunswick County and all of its wonderfulness and people began to move here. Then developers began to create such great communities that more people came, and now Brunswick County’s population is more than 130,000. Who are these people moving to Brunswick County? Why did they come? Read on.

[ RESIDENT SHOWCASES ]

MARY AND JACK HARMON — St. James —

Where did you live before relocating to Brunswick County and what was your occupation? Mary and I lived in Bear, Delaware, for 26 years before coming to Brunswick County. Mary was a fraud investigator with Bank of America, and I was an insurance agent with Prudential for 30 years. Why did you choose to move here and did you previously have friends or family here? We saw an ad in Where to Retire Magazine and stopped in on our trip to Florida. We took a tour and fell in love with the area. It’s close to the beach, and there was an Artisans Club for Mary and a Fishing Club for me. The people we met were so friendly. Everybody said hi to us. We didn’t know a soul before we came here. What community did you decide to move to and why? St. James Plantation was the only community we visited. St. James had everything we wanted. More social activities than you could possibly want, including a marina in the neighborhood.

[62]

BRUNSWICK NEW HOMES & REAL ESTATE

What is your job or what are your hobbies here? For me it’s fishing, and Mary has been a card maker for the last 20 years. We both are retired. How long have you lived here? We moved here in January of 2019; however, we bought our lot in November of 2014. Who built your home and why did you decide to build with them? Legacy Homes by Bill Clark was our builder. They offered the most for our budget. It’s not easy to build a home long distance, but our experience with Bill Clark was wonderful. We got pictures from our contact Brea Faircloth weekly with updates on the progress. They have been very responsive to all our concerns. What’s your favorite thing about southeastern North Carolina? The people are the friendliest we have ever met. Whether we are at the grocery store, post office or on the beach, everyone has a smile and something nice to say.

MARY AND BILL BREEDLOVE — Leland —

Where did you live before relocating to Brunswick County and what was your occupation? We lived in Jamestown, North Carolina, for 23 years. Bill was an engineer with Duke Energy and retired in 2014 after 41 years with the company. Mary retired early from Duke Energy after 14 years. Why did you choose to move here and did you previously have friends or family here? We had planned to live in Jamestown forever, but our son-in-law planted a church in Wilmington (The Bridge Church on Market Street), and as Bill was to retire at the end of 2014, we decided to move to the area to help with the launch of the church and to be near our only daughter and our three granddaughters. What community did you decide to move to and why? The Bluffs on the Cape Fear. We had looked for a house for a few months and just didn’t find anything that met our criteria of being built on a crawl space and an open floorplan. We continued to search through our Realtor and happened upon our house on Trulia. We decided to come down the next weekend to see the house, and it was exactly what we were looking for. We liked the neighborhood and it was close to Wilmington, so we bought and have enjoyed living here since. What is your job or what are your hobbies here? Bill enjoys playing golf, and several of the men in the neighborhood have formed a group to play weekly at various courses around the area. He also likes working in the yard, being at the pool at our clubhouse and, of course, playing with our grandchildren. Mary enjoys sewing, going to movies, painting, working with flowers and plants and being with her grandchildren and friends. How long have you lived here? In August, we will have been here five years. Who built your home and why did you decide to build with them? Southern Pines Homes built our house. It was in the process of being completed when we came to look so we were able to pick a few things out, but we were happy with the house as it was. Also, the completion date worked well with the timing of our move. What’s your favorite thing about southeastern North Carolina? We like living close to our family and the coast.

KELLY AND KEVIN LITTLEJOHN — Ocean Isle Beach —

Where did you live before relocating to Brunswick County and what was your occupation? We moved here from Springfield, Illinois, where Kevin was a sales vice president for Horace Mann Insurance. I had a Jazzercise Fitness Center, but was mostly a domestic engineer. Why did you choose to move here and did you previously have friends or family here? Kelly grew up in Gloucester, Massachusetts, and Kevin in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. We met and married in Orlando, Florida, and a new job with Allstate Insurance took us back to Chapel Hill, where our three daughters were born. After countless more relocations, our last stop was in Springfield. We chose to come back to North Carolina because it was where we were the happiest, and at the time two of our daughters were in Greensboro. What community did you decide to move to and why? We chose to move to The Retreat in Ocean Isle Beach. There were many reasons, but we definitely wanted to be closer to The UPS Store we own in Shallotte and to be closer to the beach. On June 1 we were able to open a second UPS Store in Ocean Isle Beach next to Publix. We live within walking distance to our new store! What is your job or what are your hobbies here? Besides running the two UPS Stores, Kevin loves to golf, Kelly loves to bake and we both enjoy going to the beach and riding bikes. How long have you lived here? We have lived here 18 months. Who built your home and why did you decide to build with them? When we came to the model home and spoke to Debbie Dorset, we were convinced this was the neighborhood for us. The well-built construction, personal service from Debbie, Patrick and the design team, the option of floor plans, the lots that were available (at that time) and yard care included secured our decision. What’s your favorite thing about southeastern North Carolina? After Kelly grew up in Massachusetts and we spent six years in Illinois, the beautiful weather is one of our favorite things.

SANDY AND BERNIE BISBEY — Ocean Isle Beach —

Where did you live before relocating to Brunswick County and what was your occupation? We moved from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where we were both born and raised. Bernie was employed in construction, and Sandy worked in administration for a psychiatric practice. Why did you choose to move here and did you previously have friends or family here? We vacationed in North Myrtle Beach for many years when our children were young, so we were somewhat familiar with the area. However, when we decided to retire, we wanted a less congested tourist environment. We were interested in a slower-paced, laidback community and found that in Ocean Isle Beach. Although we left all our family and friends in Pittsburgh, we were confident they would all find time to visit us. What community did you decide to move to and why? We settled in the Bill Clark community of The Retreat at Ocean Isle Beach. The model home we toured was just to our taste and beautifully appointed. We love the fact that we are able to walk to stores and that the beach is 1 mile over the bridge, not to mention the spectacular view of the ICW and ocean from the bridge. We

have found a heartwarming sense of fellowship with our new neighbors in the short amount of time we have lived here. This has helped us greatly in transitioning from the North. What is your job or what are your hobbies here? We have both settled into retirement quite well. We enjoy meeting anyone and everyone in the neighborhood and participating in the events the activities committee organizes — bowling, parties and games as well as the Friday night concerts. How long have you lived here? We have lived here 10 months. Who built your home and why did you decide to build with them? We chose Bill Clark. The quality of construction and amenities offered here at The Retreat made it an easy decision. We felt confident with our project manager, Patrick Boyd, and sales person Debbie Dorset. What’s your favorite thing about southeastern North Carolina? The weather and proximity to a spectacular beach and, of course, the breathtaking sunsets!

SUSAN AND HART MERRIAM — Ocean Isle Beach —

Where did you live before relocating to Brunswick County and what was your occupation? We moved from Apex, North Carolina. Susan is a financial coordinator for BASF. Hart is a sales manager for GE Company. Both of our companies afforded us the opportunity to work out of our new beach house. Why did you choose to move here and did you previously have friends or family here? We vacationed the last 10 years at various Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina beaches in search of the perfect spot to retire. We chose Ocean Isle Beach because of its relaxing atmosphere and its close proximity to Myrtle Beach and Wilmington. A laidback location with access to the beach, lots of restaurants and many activities led us to our new home. We have several friends from places we have lived who have moved to Brunswick County to retire. What community did you decide to move to and why? We purchased a Windjammer condominium three years ago to have a vacation home at the beach. When Hart’s office in Raleigh was closed, we moved into the condo permanently. We also started looking for the perfect lot on which to build.

[66]

BRUNSWICK NEW HOMES & REAL ESTATE

What is your job or what are your hobbies here? We both still work the same jobs out of our home office. In our spare time we enjoy our pool, treasure hunt on the beach and spend time with friends and family. How long have you lived here? We moved to Ocean Isle Beach permanently in August 2018. Who built your home and why did you decide to build with them? Our Realtor, Anne Arnold, and her husband, Jerry Baker, a home builder, showed us a beautiful new reverse floor plan home on Holden Beach. We loved the home but preferred Ocean Isle Beach. Since Jerry had his hands full, they recommended Scott Quaintance from Carolina Bluewater Construction. Scott listened to our needs and personally designed the home to our specification. Scott and his team are professional, reliable and hard working. As a result, our beautiful new home was finished one month early and the final walk-through punch list had zero items on it. Scott lived up to his excellent reputation in every way. What’s your favorite thing about southeastern North Carolina? Our favorite thing is how the stress goes away when driving over the Ocean Isle Beach causeway. The laidback, friendly atmosphere is exactly what we were looking for.

NAIDA AND RICK HOWELL — Ocean Isle Beach —

Where did you live before relocating to Brunswick County and what was your occupation? We lived in Wesley Chapel, North Carolina, (Union County) near Charlotte. I am retired from Bank of America. Why did you choose to move here and did you previously have friends or family here? The beach was always in my future, and, yes, we have friends who owned on the island. We have vacationed in Ocean Isle Beach for many years and vacationed in North Myrtle before that. What community did you decide to move to and why? The Retreat at OIB. We love the low-key lifestyle and the fact our neighbors are permanent residents. We all look out for each other. What is your job or what are your hobbies here? My husband is a runner, and he loves getting up early in the mornings (5 am), running over the bridge and hitting the beach to catch the sunrise. I love playing with all of my friends who live here. How long have you lived here? We have lived here for 20 months. Who built your home and why did you decide to build with them? We chose Bill Clark because of the location. What’s your favorite thing about southeastern North Carolina? We love the climate, coast and the low-key lifestyle.

PAT AND TOM GILL — Leland —

Where did you live before relocating to Brunswick County and what was your occupation? We lived on Long Island in New York. Tom worked for a phone company, and Pat was a registered nurse. We are both retired now. Why did you choose to move here and did you previously have friends or family here? The coastal town is what brought us here. We looked at Charlotte and Raleigh, but both were too far from the beach. We didn’t have any friends or family previously here before moving and checked it out after hearing some of our New York friends talk about the coast of North Carolina. Word of mouth got us here. The people are so friendly and great we just sensed it was the place for us. When we got down here it was just so nice we could see ourselves retiring here. What community did you decide to move to and why? We choose to move to Compass Pointe because the neighborhood has such a great layout with a variety of home styles — not so cookie cutter — and the developers were great. The people we met in the neighborhood were similar to us and friendly and welcoming. The camaraderie of everyone and the fact that many were from up North just like us made it an easy choice. The neighborhood also offers so many things to do. What is your job or what are your hobbies here? We are both retired, so no jobs, but we hang out with friends and have dinner parties. Everyone’s homes are so nice and new that it’s fun to take turns hanging out at each other’s places. The pool area in Compass Pointe is also a great place for us to hang out with friends. All the amenities offered are perfect for us. Tom enjoys playing a bit of golf; however, he is not avid golfer. We enjoy walking the neighborhood together, and we hope to get a golf cart at some point in the near future. How long have you lived here? We sold our house right when it was time to move in our new house. It was perfect coordination. We have been here since November of 2017. Who built your home and why did you decide to build with them? Bill Clark Legacy Homes built our house. The people were so great to work with! From our designer, Dana, to the Super, Lee, to our man contact, AJ — they all made it such a great experience. The communication was great, and they were very accommodating, even helping us tweak the plans to fit us. They were so patient and nice and the quality is beyond our expectations. Dennis came out to follow-up with anything we had concerns about, and it was all handled quickly and professionally. They are real pros. We are so happy we picked them. What’s your favorite thing about southeastern North Carolina? We love that it is not as congested or crowded as the New York coast. It has the perfect amount of laidback attitude mixed with an active lifestyle. We were tired of the rat race. The lesser property taxes were also an added reason, paired with the great weather. Half the year in New York, we got cabin fever being stuck inside all the time. Everyday feels like a vacation here!

AMY ABBEY — Oak Island —

Where did you live before relocating to Brunswick County and what was your occupation? I lived in New Albany, Ohio, and had a vacation home on 75 acres in northwest Pennsylvania that was formerly a Girl scout camp. We renovated the circa 1900 home on the property and turned it into a family gathering spot for the holidays. I worked for a large law firm in Columbus, Ohio.

What is your job or what are your hobbies here? I am six years retired. I buried a husband and a child in Ohio and it was time to come home. I host a private room on Airbnb and have been doing it for three years and love the people I’ve met. Many have become friends, and we stay in touch regularly. I love to cook and bake, I have four adorable pugs and between them, Airbnb and working in my yard, I am as busy as I want to be.

Why did you choose to move here and did you previously have friends or family here? I am from North Carolina. I grew up in Fayetteville and went to school in Chapel Hill and have been coming to this island my whole life. I have family and friends in the area, and my husband and I previously had a home at Caswell Beach.

How long have you lived here? October 1 will be four years.

What community did you decide to move to and why? I left a gated community in Ohio and knew I did not want that again down here, so I bought in the middle of Oak Island. Literally! I feel strongly that the HOA restrictions and guidelines don’t make for the most hospitable and welcoming community, and they truly don’t represent the best of Southern hospitality. If I was this close to the beach, I wanted to be on the island within walking distance to the ocean.

Who built your home and why did you decide to build with them? Todd Tanck of Seacoast Homes was my builder. I bought a spec home, and it was love at first sight. He had so many more upgrades than other builders’ homes I looked at, and I loved this floor plan. It still takes my breath away every time I walk in the door. I was specifically looking for a home on pilings and a corner lot. I got everything I was looking for and more! What’s your favorite thing about southeastern North Carolina? I love everything about southeastern North Carolina. The friendly people, the food, the laidback atmosphere, all the local artists and the ocean. Always the ocean.

TAMMY AND ROBERT FOX — Leland —

Where did you live before relocating to Brunswick County and what was your occupation? We moved from Goldsboro, North Carolina, as Rob retired from the U.S. Air Force and Tammy worked as a dental assistant. We lived there for 13 years. Why did you choose to move here and did you previously have friends or family here? We chose to move here because we love the ocean and the coastal city of Wilmington. There is so much to do and be involved in. We did not have any friends or family here. What community did you decide to move to and why? We chose Bluffs on the Cape Fear to live in. We love that it will be a small community and that it is a little secluded. It has everything to offer and still has the beauty of nature.

We have always loved the coast, and now we have the best of both worlds.

CONNIE AND DON KISLING — Oak Island —

Where did you live before relocating to Brunswick County and what was your occupation? We lived in Greensboro, North Carolina. Our occupation was marketing and sales. Why did you choose to move here and did you previously have friends or family here? We wanted to purchase a vacation home in which to retire. We ended up loving Oak Island and decided to build a home specific to our preferences. We already had a few friends in the area and are making more friends all the time. What community did you decide to move to and why? Our home is on Oak Island. We wanted to be close to the beach. We’re enjoying the easy and relaxed lifestyle that the location provides.

We love looking at homes while in the construction phase and found a floor plan that really appealed to us. It was a home built by SeaCoast Homes. We followed the construction through all phases and were very impressed by the quality of their homes. Our decision was made at that point. What’s your favorite thing about southeastern North Carolina? We love the diversity that North Carolina provides like the seasons and topography, and the beaches are second to none.
