Located on the Cape Fear River, just minutes from historic downtown Wilmington, North Carolina, the Bluffs community is set among acres of untouched, wooded nature. The location provides convenient access to numerous dining, shopping, cultural and recreational activities and is only one hour from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
This waterfront community is renowned for its stunning Bluffs overlooking the Cape Fear River and a land plan designed so that almost every home backs up to a natural setting rather than another house. Combine that with amenities that offer entertainment options for every member of the family and you have The Bluffs.
Residents of this private, gated community can enjoy a lakeside clubhouse with pool and tennis along with a private beach club on nearby Oak Island. These features are complete and ready for residents to enjoy today. Also under construction to be ready this Spring are the lakeside fishing pier and kayak beach. Future proposed community features include walking trails, a riverfront park with boat launching facility, and the Bluffs is presently permitted for a 50 slip marina. The thoughtfully designed community incorporates a variety of riverfront, water view, lakefront, lake view and nature settings with tree cover and rolling topography.
