A snowy egret with its regal crown of white feathers struts along by the edge of the river, eager to satisfy its hunger.  The haunting call of the common loon echoes across the water in the evening light. A sense of tranquility rolls in like a light fog in the twilight.  Winding River Plantation is home to a variety of native life while offering an abundance of fun. One of the more established North Carolina coastal communities is a haven for all who love coastal living along with convenient access to 27 holes of world class golf. 

Winding River Plantation is located in Bolivia near the village of Southport, just 30 minutes from the historic city of Wilmington.  Southport was named America's Happiest Seaside Town by Coastal Living Magazine. Wilmington is repeatedly named one of the top places to live in North Carolina because of everything the waterfront city has to offer. The gated community also offers beach access at Holden Beach within a short distance.  People of all ages including young families, retirees, young professionals and those with a love of the lifestyle that coastal living provides call this amenity rich development home.
