Cypress Landing at Chocowinity Bay

2014 Bliss Award Winner - Best Community Spirit

The quiet coastal North Carolina community of Cypress Landing at Chocowinity Bay caught Real Estate Scorecard completely by surprise during its Bliss Award voting process. 247 property owners spoke in a unified voice sharing the common threads which bond the community together. One property owner described Cypress Landing as an “Oasis! Park-like...with talented and generous people.” Several property owners commented on the “wonderful community spirit”. Another states, “We are known for our volunteerism within the surrounding community.” Property owners repeated over and over on their reviews that, “they would never move anywhere else” and “have never regretted their decision”.

Cypress Landing at Chocowinity Bay is located on the north end of the Pamlico River on the Inner Banks of North Carolina. This combination golf and boating community has over 600 Lowcountry-style and traditional brick homes. It was built by Weyerhaeuser in the late 1990’s. People chose the area because of its rural picturesque setting away from city smog and traffic congestion yet Greenville North Carolina is only 30 minutes to the west providing big city amenities, when desired.

Residents here are golfers, boaters and/or retired. This North Carolina boating community has attractive curb appeal with tall pine trees, yards with elbow room and a classy 9,000 square foot yacht clubhouse overlooking the Pamlico River. Cypress Landing's 240 boat slip deep water marina can accommodate boats up to 42 feet in length. The community’s resort-style swimming pool is adjacent to the yacht clubhouse. Cypress Landing at Chocowinity Bay also has an 18 hole championship golf course with optional golf membership. Homes are affordable beginning in the mid $200k’s. Many of the property owners expressed complete satisfaction with the HOA and low monthly dues.
