St. James Plantation Breaks Sales Records in 2015
BEST PLACES TO LIVE IN NORTH CAROLINA
In 2015, North Carolina saw record numbers of brand new residents moving into the area. Most came to escape the bitter cold of northern states, and settle on the warm Atlantic coast of North Carolina. Fortunately, this lead to record sales of new homes in Southport NC, in one of the most exclusive North Carolina coastal communities. And with the trend in winter weather (think Snowpocalypse, 2016), we can expect further migration to the warmth of the southeast.
One beneficiary of this trend has been St. James Plantation, a gated community with stunning new homes in Southport NC. The community is a great escape from unbearable winter weather, with championship golf, a private marina, and a beach club on the ocean. In 2015, St. James Plantation sold a record number of homes, with $60 million in sales, and more than $80 million in new home construction. By the numbers alone, this is one of the most desirable North Carolina coastal communities.
And if those numbers aren't enough, recent months have set the bar with several other records. As of 2016, St. James Plantation boasts:
- 279 new families welcomed in 2015, accounting for $59.2 million in sales
- 196 new home starts (2015), representing a capital investment of $80 million
- 150 homes currently under construction, with 50 more in the pipeline for the first quarter of 2016
- a three-year total of 825 home sales, for a total of $170 million
- a record 4,000 residents
Staking its claim as one of the best North Carolina coastal communities, St. James Plantation offers more than new homes in Southport NC. The community sets the standard for a luxurious southern lifestyle. Residents enjoy tennis, swimming, a fitness center, and 15 miles of nature trails. If you like to be pampered, enjoy private steam rooms, saunas, and afternoons at the exclusive beach club. The marina features wet slips and private dry boat storage, with easy access to the Intracoastal waterway. And there are more than 18 holes to be played at the St. James golf course.
In fact, the St. James golf course has a staggering total of 81 holes, 4 1/2 separate courses set amongst sweeping coastal landscapes. Clubhouses feature practice greens, driving ranges, first-class dining, and all of your golfing needs. If you live for golf, then there's no better place in North Carolina than at the St. James golf course.
