Bald Head Island Limited, LLC, is excited to announce Cape Fear Station on Bald Head Island was recently named the 2017 Southern Living Inspired Community of the Year by Southern Living magazine.

“Southern Living Inspired Communities are neighborhoods marked by charm, taste and Southern spirit that embody a distinctive pride of place. Since becoming a Southern Living Inspired Community, Cape Fear Station on Bald Head Island has exceeded our expectations on all fronts,” said Kristen Bryan, marketing director for Time, Inc. “The quality of the homes within the community combined with the commitment to fully embrace the program has earned Cape Fear Station on Bald Head Island the Community of the Year Award.”

The neighborhood, which was first released for sale in 2015, is located a short walk to the Atlantic Ocean, just above Cape Fear. About a dozen families have homes completed or underway in the development. Home prices range from around $750,000 to over $1 million.

“With most properties in Phase I spoken for, we’ve just started releasing homesites in the second phase of the neighborhood,” said Chad Paul, CEO for Bald Head Island Limited. “We expect those to be spoken for quickly,” he added.

The community’s lead builder is Whitney Blair Custom Homes, named Southern Living Custom Builder of the Year in 2016.

“The success of the Southern Living Inspired Community and the Southern Living Idea House recently built on the island generated excitement and interest not only in Cape Fear Station, but in real estate throughout Bald Head Island this past year,” said Jeff Leonard, executive sales director for Bald Head Island Limited.
