A good read from the Real Estate Showcase about Brunswick Forest, an award winning master-planned community nestled beside Wilmington, NC!
Do you dream of a tropical backyard retreat centered around a refreshing pool, a luxurious lanai and a gourmet summer kitchen? Is a Southern manor more your style, where sweeping porches are marked by stately columns and rocking chairs for family and neighbors? Perhaps your heart desires to work with an architect to create the stunning masterpiece that (for now) exists only in your imagination.
It’s all possible in Brunswick Forest’s premier neighborhoods of Cape Fear National, Cypress Pointe and Banyan Bay. The homes are upscale, the amenities rival any country club community without the initiation fees, and the warm, welcoming environment is a pervasive breath of fresh air.
Most of the homes in Cape Fear National are customizable, with residents working one-on-one with a member of the esteemed builder team. Cypress Pointe and Banyan Bay offer a portfolio of established floor plans with the ability to personalize them inside and out.
Dave Spetrino, President and CEO of Plantation Building Corp, whose company has built more than 70 homes in Brunswick Forest since 2009, explained the process. “It’s fairly comprehensive, from determining how to best site the home based on views or the sun, to creating a floor plan that meets our clients’ needs and their new, local lifestyle,” he said. “We ask a lot of questions to really understand not only who our clients are, but how they plan to live in their new home.”
LIFE + STYLE
Jerry Helms, Director of Sales and Marketing at Brunswick Forest, underscored the desirability of
the community’s premier neighborhoods. “In most cases, people who build here have worked very hard to achieve a fine lifestyle and now it’s time to enjoy the fruits of their labors,” he said. “Brunswick Forest is a natural fit because we have several neighborhoods that epitomize the pinnacle of retirement living.”
Helms continued, “But the appeal of Brunswick Forest reaches well beyond retirees. Families of all ages are finding the community has a wealth of amenities and styles of living.” In addition to the renowned golf course, Brunswick Forest offers residents three swimming pools, tennis and pickleball courts, a fitness center, miles of scenic walking and biking trails, a creek-side boat launch, and an onsite town center with shopping and dining, as well as quality medical care and other services.
“Without a doubt, Brunswick Forest is the new home community in our area,” said Spetrino. “The quality of the infrastructure and the strength of the developer reassure our clients that they are making a good decision for their forever home.”
Spetrino also emphasized the diversity in price points, home site sizes and home types. “Everyone feels as though they will fit in, no matter which section of the community they choose,” he said. “ Most importantly, neighbors are what make a neighborhood great. We joke about how little free time our owners have after they move in. Brunswick Forest residents really enjoy their time being active within the community, whether on the golf course, socializing or giving back.”
