RE/MAX Southern Shores sells property in Sunset Harbor, North Carolina

Are you thinking of living in coastal North Carolina?  Well, look no further than Sunset Harbor and the Lockwoods Folly River. Minutes south of Wilmington, NC and 50 minutes north of Myrtle Beach, SC you'll find Sunset Harbor along the Intracoastal Waterway with direct Atlantic Ocean access.  You will see birds diving for fish and shrimp boats moored at the dock, plus the beautiful Lockwoods Folly River.  Buyers have housing choices at River Run Plantation, Winding River Plantation, and Rourk Landing Estates, all spectacular riverfront communities that are also close to the Intracoastal Waterway. 


The Lockwoods Folly River drains a 150-square mile watershed in southeast Brunswick County.  The River winds through pinelands, hardwoods, wetlands, blackwater creeks and tributaries, deepwater runs, marsh, mudflats, estuary and shallows.  Each unique habitat sustains countless bird species, game and non-game wildlife, rare plants and fish.

There are condominiums and detached homes in the midst of this spectacular setting.  The Lockwoods Folly River offers genteel coastal living in an unspoiled natural setting. Lockwood Folly County Club is situated on the banks of the Lockwood Folly River.  The following video provides an excellent view of the estuary, the golf course, the woodland setting for homes and condominiums, and the ever-changing grandeur of the river.

River Run is a gated waterfront community located on the River with views of the Intracoastal Waterway and Oak Island. It has a clubhouse, pool, tennis court, boat ramp and boat storage, picnic areas, and fishing pier. The streets are tree-lined and it offers a quiet respite to the busy world.
