A feeling of tranquility washes over the riverfront community as the breathtaking colorful sunset bathes the landscape in soft golden and pink hues. Welcome to River Bluffs in historic Castle Hayne in Hanover County, less than 20 minutes from all the wonders and modern conveniences at one of the top places to live in North Carolina.  In the 1730’s, the appeal of this land was recognized by Captain Haynes and selected to become his home, his dream.  His dream grew into the mansion and plantation affectionately referred to as “Haynes Castle”.  Now it’s your chance to experience the beauty of the area that drew Captain Haynes to this land so many years ago. 

One of the new Wilmington NC communities, River Bluffs is a low impact development built on a philosophy of preservation and sustainability of the natural resources.  More than one third of the 313 acres has been set aside as a permanent natural space for parks, trails and open space.   River Bluffs repeaded the rewards of their land stewardship with the 2014 Energy Efficiency Award.
