Dennis and Patti Kelleher – The Bluffs on the Cape Fear
Dennis and Patti Kelleher chose to move to The Bluffs on Cape Fear because of the natural landscape which is preserved as much as possible, giving a sense of space and privacy.
Where did you live before relocating to Brunswick County, and what were your jobs?
We lived in Keene, New Hampshire. Dennis was a food industry sales executive, and Patti was a teacher and freelance editor.
How long have you lived here?
We moved here in November 2020.
Why did you choose to move to southeastern North Carolina and did you previously have friends or family here?
We moved here for a more active lifestyle, improved climate and more opportunities for socializing. We have no family here (but they love to visit) and we have friends outside the community within an hour’s drive.
What community did you decide to move to and why?
The Bluffs on the Cape Fear in Leland was our choice. The natural landscape is preserved as much as possible, giving a sense of space and privacy. The Beach House on Oak Island is a surprise benefit as well.
Who built your home and why did you decide to build with them?
Our home was built by Southern Pines Homes and Ted Kennedy. We were building from afar (New Hampshire), and Southern Pines Homes is the onsite builder, which gave us peace of mind. The communication and follow-through were great.
What are your jobs or hobbies here?
We are both now happily retired, but our hobbies include golf, yoga, pickleball, gardening, bike riding, kayaking and water volleyball and water aerobics, just to name a few.
What’s your favorite thing about southeastern North Carolina?
Our favorite thing is the climate that allows us to be outside and active 12 months of the year!
