Discover Ocean Isle Beach, Winding River Plantation & St. James Plantation

3 Brunswick County Neighborhoods

Who wouldn't love living in a community where there are beautiful beaches, towns filled with Southern charm, championship golf courses, and year-round mild temperatures?  With all of this, it comes as no surprise Brunswick County is one of the fastest growing communities in America drawing singles, growing families, and retirees alike to our Carolina coast.  

Each local community offers its own distinct personality, so it can be difficult for newcomers searching for a home to find "just the right" neighborhood to make their own. Our real estate agents at Margaret Rudd & Associates wanted to call special attention to three Brunswick County neighborhoods you don't want to miss.

  1. Ocean Isle Beach
    Ocean Isle Beach
    , often called the Gem of the Brunswick Islands, is a quaint island community located midway between Wilmington, NC to the north and Myrtle Beach, SC to the south.  Much smaller and quieter than its neighboring tourist communities, Ocean Isle Beach is perfectly suited for family interested in moving to Coastal Carolina.

    During the day, locals spending can spend their days at the beach, fishing at the nearby pier or chartering a boat into open waters. Other attractions include Museum of Coastal Carolina, Ingram Planetarium and the Shallotte River Swamp Park & Outdoor Center.

    Seafood really is the main attractions at local eateries given the area's location.  The Causeway Gourmet, Isles Restaurant & Tiki Bar, and Sharkey's Waterfront Restaurant & Marina are three local favorites.

    Whether it's a year-round home or vacation property you're in search of, Ocean Isle Beach has a variety of real estate properties for nearly every taste and budget.  Home buyers can expect to find everything from oceanfront cottages to single-family homes, condos and townhouses.

  2. St. James Plantation
    St. James Plantation
    is a relatively new gated community along the Intracoastal Waterway of North Carolina.  Just a five-minute drive from Southport and Oak Island, about 4,500 people call St. James Plantation home.

    With eight distinct neighborhoods plus award-winning golf courses, tennis courts, swimming pools, an outdoor amphitheater, walking and biking trails, private waterway marina, and beach club, everyone from active retirees to young families is moving to St. James Plantation.  

    Recently voted "Best of the Best" by Ideal Living Magazine, St. James Plantation residents enjoy a mild southern climate with four distinct seasons perfect for outdoor adventures, shopping, restaurants and culture.  Here you'll find all types and styles of homes from condos to spacious custom-built homes starting in the mid-$200 price range.

  3. Winding River Plantation
    Winding River Plantation
    is a gated community located in Bolivia, NC just minutes from Southport and Oak Island. If you're searching for an active lifestyle community in the heart of Brunswick County, then Winding River Plantation may be for you.  It offers residents access to the amenities similar to that of a luxury, resort community. Here you'll find easy access to golf, tennis, swimming, walking and biking trails, and pristine beaches.

    Winding River Plantation features a variety of single-family homes and condominiums as well as home sites with gorgeous views in an environmentally friendly setting are available for custom-built homes.
