The town of Beaufort is a huge draw for tourists and travellers of all sorts: Sailors looking for respite from their journey, city residents striving to revel in the slower pace and savor the coastal vibe as well as folks from nearby towns who head to historic Beaufort-by-the Sea to dine, shop or ferry over to Shackleford Banks for the day. There’s even more to admire than the charm and beauty of the waterfront. Proof is the joie de vivre that abounds in the tight knit communities of Beaufort and the obvious love the locals have for their hometown.
Driving over the Core Creek Bridge and turning into this tucked away location feels like a best-kept secret. Stanton Landing is only minutes away from downtown Beaufort, yet the approach through the quiet, verdant landscape of oak trees, manicured lawns and twisting roads lends an exclusive and private air.
This neighborhood offers a myriad of benefits and incredible appeal. The classic, tasteful homes ...

This tucked away estate has a fictional feel— movie set, fairy tale or fantasy are all fitting possibilities. When arriving along the winding driveway ensconced by unspoiled woods and branches, the terrain of trees and brush provide a canopy of comfort like a secret hideaway. Turning the corner, the view opens up slowly to reveal lush landscaping — spiral topiaries, winged statues, and brilliant bursts of colored blooms. A hidden garden with a wrought iron gate is sneak-away distance, just barely out-of-sight. The brick facade’s symmetry and sweeping entrance are both imposing and alluring... the mixture of grandeur and calm almost heady.
The beauty and seclusion are however, neither one, imagined. This acreage was chosen with much forethought and consideration, for its privacy and panoramic sound view. Inspired by a love of plantation style homes seen throughout New Orleans, the owners chose French colonial architecture for its pleasing r ...

The owners of this property have vision and forethought combined with care and affection for the land that is their home here on the coast. Those qualities were the catalyst behind the purchase of the property at 2622 Country Club Road. Made up of wetlands, flawless beaches, maritime forest and a broad spectrum of animal life, the Carolina coast is a unique and joyful place to behold. This area is a throwback in spirit, beauty and wonder, worthy of the generations of sailors, nature lovers and conservationists that have guarded it through the past and will see it many generations into the future.
As two architects, they recognized this tract of land for its splendor, for its space and adaptability, and access to the water. Imagining six homes here in a close-knit community with a park, or seven homes joined together by a shared love of this stunning landscape and ample privacy is what inspired them.
This habitat is a delight for the senses. The rustle of ...

You can tell a lot about people by where they are from. Growing up in a city versus the country, on the east coast or west, in the mountains or on the shore… there are so many variables that play a part in what shapes us. It is also part of the American dream to know that at any point it is possible to pick up, pack up and head out to more promising pastures. However, more and more people are staying put and loving… or revisiting their roots. Add to that, the benefits of being at “home” are huge, especially when that place is the Crystal Coast!
The sellers of 331 Pearson Circle have a deep connection to this area. They have been privy to much lore and many little known secrets, too, so it was no surprise that they custom-built this home 19 years ago, a few doors down from their grandparents’ “fish camps” that they grew up visiting as children. With the creek out their front door and the ICW in sight, all of the kids in the ...

There is something universally dreamy and appealing about living on the water. Nothing is more relaxing than the sound of waves and birdsong, the fresh air and sunshine that are so abundant by the sea… simultaneously soothing and stimulating all at once. Trips to the beach, kayaking or strolling for shells are equally full of wonder and inspire meditative thought. Though there is a magic to the shore, it is a fact that people who live closest to it enjoy better health than those who live inland. The healing and therapeutic effects of the coastal lifestyle are real.
The drive to 140 Sea Oats Street is a winding and scenic route. Travel over low-slung bridges and the expansive North River, heading Down East, a historic maritime community here in North Carolina. The area is known for picturesque salt marshes, a slow and easy way of life and neighbors to know and love.
Country roads lead to charming panoramas around every twist and turn… ar ...
