Neighborhood Showcase: Brunswick Forest
Active Living in a Connected Community – Brunswick Forest
Celebrating its 11th anniversary in 2019, Brunswick Forest is a lively, 4,500-acre, amenity-rich retreat where community connection and active living are always on the Get Connected calendar. As the only coastal North Carolina community deemed one of the top 50 best-selling master-planned communities nationwide, Brunswick Forest is a pristine example of a community designed with a diversity of residents in mind. Located just minutes from downtown Wilmington over the Cape Fear River Bridge, Brunswick Forest boasts eight unique neighborhoods with housing options ranging from low-maintenance patio homes and upscale townhomes to spacious golf course estates and charming waterside bungalows.
This summer Brunswick Forest will continue to grow with the opening of two new neighborhoods. The Lakes, a West Indies–inspired neighborhood, offers packages from the $400s, and Cypress Point, a charming collection of coastal homes, offers packages from the high $300s. Throughout the community, price points range from the high $200s to $1 million, with premier home-sites beginning in the $80s.
As Jerry Helms, vice president of sales for Brunswick Forest notes, “We have consistently experienced record growth, year after year. Quite simply, our strategy is to deliver precisely what people desire in a home and community.”
For Brunswick Forest residents, this means miles of walking and biking trails winding through lush forests with quaint footbridges over creeks. It means pocket parks and greenspace galore for neighborhood gatherings and events. Two fitness and wellness centers boast indoor and outdoor pools, several exercise and meeting rooms, a splashpad for the kids and tennis and pickleball courts. The fitness and wellness centers offer educational seminars on topics ranging from memoir-writing and interior design to financial planning and self-defense to health-based workshops on hormone replacement therapy, medical weight loss, peripheral neuropathy and the joys of using essential oils.
Active living flows through the landscape of Brunswick Forest, with access to everything just a short walk or bike ride away. Residents can traverse Hammock Lake on standup paddleboards, kayaks and canoes, and nearby Town Creek feeds into the Cape Fear River for outings on larger watercraft. In the heart of Brunswick Forest, the Clubhouse at Cape Fear National Golf Club offers karaoke night, trivia night, wine-pairing dinners and a cigar club. Nearby, The Villages of Brunswick Forest serves as a town center with shops, restaurants, service outlets and medical facilities.
Residents say they have never been busier, more active or happier in their lives, and the reason is clear — Brunswick Forest provides an endless source of engagement opportunities, from their own Amazing Race inspired by the Emmy Award-winning CBS show, to their annual Westminster-inspired dog show, to pig-pickins and potlucks, to the Cardboard Boat Regatta, to outdoor concerts in Annsdale Park.
Residents have access to all common amenities as part of their home ownership and monthly HOA dues — with no need to pay an additional club membership. Those interested in joining the Brunswick Forest community are invited to stop by the Welcome Center or to call for an appointment.
