North Carolina Coastal Real Estate
In “The Sailing Capital of North Carolina,” coastal real estate is set amid the Neuse and Bay Rivers and the creeks that intertwine through the towns. We have more than our fair share of waterfront property.
North Carolina is home to a quaint fishing village called Oriental, known by sailors as the halfway point between New York and Florida when traveling along the Intracoastal Waterway. With just 875 residents and over 2,700 boats, it’s obvious how Oriental earned its title.
Quiet with a distinctive down home charm, Pamlico County holds its place in history as one of the first settlements discovered in the New World (land records detailing grants from the King of England to local residents of the day are still on record.) Today, with warm coastal breezes, mild year round temperatures and welcoming smiles, you won’t find a more relaxed way of life in North Carolina.
