The southernmost of North Carolina's cape islands, Bald Head Island is a community located two nautical miles off of the coast of Southport, North Carolina. This island community is distinguished by thousands of acres of unspoiled coastal preserves and a complete absence of automobile traffic.
Bald Head Island is linked to the mainland via a 20-minute ferry service and is also reachable by private vessel. Bicycles and golf carts provide convenient transportation around the island, from the picturesque Village to the Southern Living Inspired Community of Cape Fear Station, and along 14 miles of pristine, sandy beaches.
Residents enjoy privileged access to an 18-hole championship golf course, two private clubhouses, tennis and fitness facilities, swimming pools, a full-service marina and an extensive network of walking and biking trails, with a range of shops and restaurants available onsite.
Buyers can choose from a selection of new and pre-owned homes and townhomes, shared ownership cottages or ready-to-build lots, with a variety of builders that offer a choice of portfolio homes and custom designs.
