When You Retire, Commence Playing in Your New Backyard

“Living by the links” is the hottest trend in Wilmington Real Estate.

Wilmington Real Estate is above par. But full appreciation of the temperate climate, ocean-side location, home value and wealth of amenities only comes when you can also play alongside the area’s hottest real estate market.

Many people nearing retirement are in the market for a home with a view and want to find a playground to keep their Callaway® clubs swinging. In Wilmington and along the Intracoastal Waterway, just beyond the sand dunes and among the sloping, lush green fairways, golfers tee off and play through the most desirable real estate in Southeastern North Carolina. Best of all, these avid golfers live in stylish homes that are just off the fairway.

Every golfer wants to live near an award winning golf course. The spouses of these newly retired golfers are gladly moving in, too. With all the amenities that the golf communities provide, the non-putting loved one will be happy to call it home. Each golf community boasts a wonderful variety of luxury amenities sure to cater to the entire family’s individual tastes.

Aiming to keep active and stay fit? The impressive 27-hole course by Tom Jackson at Magnolia Greens Golf Plantation is the backdrop for a state-of-the-art recreational facility that hosts group fitness classes and fills 8,000 square feet of space with workout space and top-of-the-line fitness equipment. Venture outdoors to serve-up on the tennis courts or go for a dip in the competition size swimming pool. For a more leisure approach to the energetic lifestyle, stroll along one of the meandering walking paths to discover picturesque lakes, wooded clusters of oak trees and well-groomed natural countryside.

After an active day within the neighborhood, how about having a thick and juicy steak or a grilled entrée? Porters Neck Plantation, in addition to having the region’s best golf with an award winning course by Tom Fazio, boasts relaxed chic dining and a full-service bar and grill. Banquet facilities host special events such as a community pig pickin’ and lobster fest. When hosting a special celebration, the club is a wonderful place for private parties.

One of the most picturesque golf courses in the state is the Cape Fear Country Club. Built in 1896, the inspirational design of Donald Ross adds to the majestic nature of the course. A challenge to every aspiring Tiger Woods, this distinctly hilly course will bring the best out of you. Due to the beautiful design and clear thought that went into this course, many of the holes have delicate water features in the form of inland lakes. Aesthetically pleasing these may be, but taking your eye off the green will soon land you in trouble… the “feature hole” on this par 72 course is the tricky 15th. A par three of 187 yards from tee to green, you will have to make sure you get over the lake with your tee shot or suffer the inevitable bogey. Whatever your score, you are guaranteed to enjoy the sumptuous surroundings of this truly beautiful location. End the day with a beverage and a delicious meal and you will have completed your Cape Fear Country Club experience in fine style.

All these amenities are within reach from a link-side townhome, cottage-style dwelling or custom designed property. This is the hottest trend in Wilmington Real Estate and the opportunity to own a unique view of the fairway is soon to be ‘in the rough.’ The last chance to purchase a home in an award-winning golf community like Magnolia Greens Golf Plantation, Porters Neck Plantation or Country Club of Landfall is still available. Now that the kids are gone, choose a home that includes a backyard playground with both the golfer and non-golfer in mind with Wilmington Real Estate.
