Ocean Ridge Plantation


The Big Cats -- three simple words that say so much about golf. At Ocean Ridge Plantation, everyday you can enjoy your choice of Lions Paw, Panthers Run, Tigers Eye and Leopards Chase. Located just minutes from the soft sandy beaches of Ocean Isle Beach and Sunset Beach, Ocean Ridge is the #1 golf community in Brunswick County.  As you pass through the gates, you’ll be struck by the timeless architecture and finely manicured estates. Ocean Ridge residents enjoy a full complement of amenities, including indoor/outdoor pools, tennis, fitness, walking trails and perhaps the most convenient private beach club in the Carolinas, just a few minutes drive to the ocean.  Waiting there is a complete beach club with parking, outdoor showers, walkway onto the beach, a kitchen, clean restrooms, two large living rooms and a covered porch. Ocean Ridge gives special meaning to "a day at the beach."

After a 20-year career in Industrial Automation, I finally chased my dream of being in real estate in 2001, and it has been a wonderful journey ever since. It began by working with two of the largest developers in the North Carolina coastal region before venturing into general real estate in 2005. A year later, I opened Carolina Plantations Real Estate in Ocean Isle Beach.  We are a niche player in our market, as we primarily focus on working with folks from the Mid-Atlantic to New England to Midwest states who are considering Southeastern, NC for a place to retire and/or purchase a second home. Our team fully understands that the first step for our clients is to determine if this area matches their lifestyle needs. Once this is established, then we focus on which of the plantations here meet their budget and activities requirements. Then, and only then, do we focus on the home. (beach home, condo, single-family, land, etc.).  We sold over $13 million in real estate in over 25 communities last year, from Wilmington to Calabash. We are the area experts and will be pleased to also show you properties on Bald Head Island and inside the gates of Crow Creek, Magnolia Greens, Porters Neck, Rivers Edge, Sea Trail and any other golf communities between Wilmington and the South Carolina border.
