Does anyone have any information on Cambridge Crossings located in Southport NC? I found their web site, but there's no information on prices, how built out it is, really just any information available. It looks like the homes are quite nice but not out of sight price wise, and I really liked the location.

Did you happen to see this article? Abandoned Neighborhood - Cambridge Crossing, Southport, NC

I would be cautious about getting a home that has been left to weather for several years. At least get an inspection for mold and odors. However, if you get a new unit, the location is great. I checked Zillow.com which picks up the assessed value of the existing units at Cambridge Cove, and they run $147K to $240K, depending on size. I'd expect new units to be a bit more.

I did read the article about the community being abandoned. However, in 2009 (I think), the houses that were builts were razed and made into mulch, so all the building since then appears to have been on new houses not remodeled existing properties. Thanks for responding

Well, as I drive by there going down Fish Factory Road a few times per week, I actually drove into Cambridge Crossings this afternoon. It doesn't look like very much to me, it is simply a large circular road around a small man made "pond" ( took about 1 minute to actually drive around the entire development ) with maybe a couple of dozen attached townhouse type units built and standing, doesn't look like anything new is going on and the standing units do not appear to be new in the past few years, there were cars in the driveways of some of the units but other than that it looks fairly abandoned ( development-wise ) with nothing going on, IMO. It also is quite a hike down the road to the South Harbor neighborhood and its' "very small and seemingly unused" pool that Cambridge Crossings' website advertises as usable by its' residents.... that is IF the two neighborhoods are actually "connected" in some way by ownership agreement, but definitely not physically. Looks like something I would steer clear of.... IMO.

However, Southport is a very nice place and there are maybe a dozen or more neighborhoods/developments scattered throughout Southport that are actually active, building and selling connected and/or single family detached homes and IMO better locations and in ALL different price ranges.

Stonecreek67, thank you so much for taking the time to drive through Cambridge Crossings. Amazing, isn't it how a website can make a development look outstanding when, in fact, it is not. I have just crossed it off our "maybe" list.

My daughter lives in Southport, and we've been there a few times and loved it. Kind of reminded me of Cape Cod, but it is out of the way. We'll be in North Myrtle Beach this winter (Barefoot Resort) and plan on looking at neighborhoods/real estate in NMB, Little river, and Southport.

Again, thank you for taking the time to do a drive through, much appreciated.

Default Cambridge Crossings, Southport, NC

I wanted to chime in and update everyone on the exciting developments at Cambridge Crossings! If you haven't seen the project since this thread was last updated, you should definitely check it out. I am the project marketing director for the company that purchased the project in 2010. We've resurrected this development and it is now a thriving community! We are continuing to build new townhomes, and we just came out with three new floor plans that are all single-level designs! Here are the new floor plans:
