River Bluffs

Few, if any, coastal communities can rival the beauty and serenity of River Bluffs https://riverbluffsliving.com/ in Castle Hayne, NC. You will discover that living at River Bluffs offers the feeling of being far from a city, yet its proximity to downtown Wilmington, where award-winning eateries and eclectic boutiques abound, is just minutes away. And the beautiful ocean beaches of Wrightsville Beach or Carolina Beach are within easy reach.

This gated, riverfront community boasts new homes from the $300s to $1.5M+, with lots starting at $80K. This price range offers diversity making it ideal for young families as well as retirees seeking their forever home. The neighborhood includes a Riverwalk where residents can experience and marvel at the natural beauty of the Cape Fear River; a marina that will ultimately host 188 boat slips; parks and trails for hiking or leisurely walks; a community center that features a fitness center and incredible pool; tennis and pickleball courts to encourage an active lifestyle; and a general store offering folks a place to gather and conveniently pick up incidentals.

Currently, Richard Wallace Builder, Inc. has a furnished model home at 319 Cornubia Drive https://riverbluffsliving.com/property/the-portulaca/ and an inviting spec home at 323 Cornubia Drive https://riverbluffsliving.com/property/the-jessamine/.
