When I embarked on the assignment to post a blog on the activity at Colonial Charters, the neighborhood I live in, I did not expect to find that Eureka moment, but I did.
In spite of the slow market we had in 2007, Colonial Charters was actually buzzing with activity, selling close to 100% of it's inventory!!!
This is ONE HOT NEIGHBORHOOD!!!
I knew that it was a diamond of a neighborhood. That's why I bought my home there (that, plus, my daughter begged me to buy there, because most of her friends lived here). You'll find a high concentration of agent owners here and with good reason: Colonial Charters is the most bang for the dollar that you can get at the Beach, and no one knows that better than the Real Estate Agents.
Located only 7 minutes to the blue Atlantic, within a very short distance to ALL four schools, hospital, doctors, shopping and main highways, and a mere three minute drive to North Carolina, Colonial Charters is positioned like no other.
I take my daughter and her friends to school in the morning (our group of mothers all take turns taking the girls to school, church, sports and activities), I go jog on the beach, then lift a few weights at the gym on the way home. It's all in very close proximity of 3-7 minutes.
In the evening we go bicycling on the wide streets or on the golf course trails, rollerblade on the smooth asphalt, or jog around the lakes. Whatever you want; it's all here: golf course, preserves, lakes, fountains, wild life, and civilization. With fish and turtles in the lakes, Colonial Charters can accommodate almost every hobby...
On Saturdays we go to Indigo Farms, located only 3-4 minutes away. The kids love the many farm animals there, and I love the fresh fruits and vegetables and the great nursery, where you can see for yourself the largest ficus plant I've ever laid my eyes on. It's actually a ficus tree now, almost breaking through the rooftop of the nursery.
Colonial Charters is a Huge neighborhood comprised of Four Residential Neighborhoods, three condo projects and two townhome developments. All in all, we have 9 neighborhoods within the neighborhood of Colonial Charters. The big Kahuna is coming shortly, a beautiful development of high end homes situated around several vast lakes, complete with fountains and lovely Waterfalls. It will be a gated community and it will be gorgeous.
The old Colonial Charters Golf course has been re-directed and is in the last stages of being completely replanted and revamped. I can see the lovely green pastures of the new golf course from my kitchen window: oh, what a lovely, verdant sight! You should be here!
Tune in next week for part II of the five part series on Colonial Charters!
