Brunswick Forest - Where Families Enjoy Vacations Right at Home
Who doesn’t love the summer months? A happy time when most of us are heading off on fun-filled, family vacations. In fact, American’s spend over $200 million a year to experience this ‘happy state’ as often as they can. Seasoned real estate developers have taken notice and are building these ‘vacation playgrounds’ right within their neighborhoods. Places with resort-style swimming pools and spas, great lawns for outdoor concerts and entertainment, and convenient ways to access a prime waterway for kayaking adventures and more.
We checked in on one of these type of places, by far one of the best neighborhoods in Wilmington NC. Brunswick Forest began development in 2009 by Lord Baltimore Properites, a company dating back to 1911 when Louis Blaustein founded Amoco Oil. Their financial strength has provided a strong backbone for the community and the capability to build these kind of expensive lifestyle amenities yet annual homeowner association fees are low, at less than $200 a month. This provides access to the community’s state-of-the-art 18,000 square foot wellness center, three swimming pools, eleven tennis and pickleball courts and dining venue. Golf at Cape Fear National is an optional membership.
Refined, relaxing and refreshing are ways we would describe the Wilmington NC real estate development. Over 1,000 families live here today. This is not a plain vanilla neighborhood. We love the super-sized sidewalks and coastal landscaping. With over 200 days of sunshine, there’s so much to do here! Here’s a quick peek at the July & August activities calendar:
Whether you enjoy golf, gardening or a vigorous workout at the gym, when you live in the neighborhood, these fun lifestyle activities are available without ever needing a car. Brunswick Forest has such a fantastic pedestrian and bike friendly trail system within the community. Connecting to The Villages at Brunswick Forest, residents can bike ride or walk to the grocery store, a coffee shop, bank or doctor. The 160-acre town center is made up of more than 500,000 square feet of retail, dining, medical and professional establishment. This includes the 40,000 square foot New Hanover Regional Medical Center.
With such an extension trail system (over 100 miles) and outdoor amenities, Brunswick Forest is naturally pet friendly. In addition to the pet friendly trails, your four-legged best friend has his own dedicated off-leash dog park named Meadow Park. A very popular place for picnics and game of catch. You’ll be hard pressed to find active retirement communities in North Carolina that are more pet friendly.
If you are interested in a new home or a resale in one of their charming neighborhoods, the experience is the same. The Brunswick Forest team is dedicated to helping you find the perfect home that suits your style and budget in this award-winning, amenity-rich community. There’s always a dozen or so model homes to explore.
