Exclusive ‘Anchors Bend’ Nautical Community Launches in Wilmington, NC

WILMINGTON, N.C., March 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Atlantic Blue Developers has unveiled plans for a unique nautical community, located on the spectacular Intracoastal Waterway near Wilmington, North Carolina's historic downtown.

Primary to the community's design is its focus on nautical lifestyle. Residents can easily cruise to the Atlantic Ocean via the Intracoastal Waterway. The highlight of Anchors Bend is The Marina Club, which features a protected dock and deep-water boat slips ranging in size from 30 to 65 feet. The scarcity of large boat slips with deep-water access makes the Anchors Bend offering quite exceptional.

"Boaters aren't the only people who'll appreciate the Anchors Bend lifestyle," said Bart Edge, of Atlantic Blue Developers. "We created the community with water enthusiasts of all kinds in mind. Residents can fish on an undisturbed barrier island, or swim or surf in the Atlantic Ocean. Or, just watch spectacular sunrises over the water. There's something for everyone to enjoy."

Consisting of approximately 140 acres of land, the property's vast natural beauty has been maintained and offers some of the most stunning views on the Carolina coast. Forty-two acres of open space include scenic walking trails, and 12 acres of wetlands that will remain undeveloped to sustain the ecosystem and preserve the natural beauty of the land. Two community clubhouses, two swimming pools, a state-of-the-art fitness center, and a variety of other indoor amenities add to the appeal of living at Anchors Bend.

Four distinct neighborhoods that cater to a variety of residential lifestyles, from custom to carefree, will ultimately make up the Anchors Bend community. Reservations are initially being taken for The Preserve, 71 heavily wooded homesites ranging in size from one-half to 1.3 acres. Additional homesites, as well as a large low-maintenance neighborhood, with homes inspired by the traditional architecture once found in the Middle Sound area, will be released in the near future. Townhomes will also be available in 2009.
