There are no specifically age-restricted communities near Beaufort, NC. The closest to what you seek might be this marina-oriented community: http://www.frontstreetvillage.com/ Their "cottages" and "bungalows" are really apartments in larger buildings. In addition, Savvy Homes is building a small, new community called "The Wye" a couple blocks from Front Street, but it is not specifically targeted for "active adults". Similarly, Caviness & Cates is building large family homes at the North River Club, and there will certainly be children there.

There are plenty of other golf and boating-oriented communities in Eastern NC which have predominantly older populations. Here is my favorite source for these communities:North Carolina Retirement Communities & Active Adult Communities | 55 Places There are many other suitable areas which are not listed. One of my favorites under development is way north of Beaufort at Scotch Hall Preserve http://scotchhallpreserve.com/ . Another possibility is Albemarle Plantation in Hertford, a golf and boating community where you can buy a lot and hire a builder, or buy a resale home.

If you list your interests, wants and price-range, someone could help you better.

Thank you, I am very interested in scotchhallpreserve. Interesting to see how many communities come up when looking for active adult, only to find they are not age restrictive.

Our price range is 250,000 to 350,000. Planning to visit in October, so trying to put together a list of possible future home sites.

Scotch Hall Preserve is across the river from Edenton, which is a charming, historic town.

I think that North Carolina is so "family-oriented" that places sell better if you advertised them as places for the grandparents, children and grandchildren to gather together. All-adult communities are rare.
