Hi all so my wife and I are in central NJ and want to consider NC but need to narrow down some areas. We need some suggestions for nice quiet areas no further than 30 mins (closer the better) from a nice quiet beach (theme going here). We would like a decent lot of 1/2 acre or larger. Non-congested areas. If some folks can throw out a few areas that I can plug into a real estate site that would be a great start. THANKS!

You'll need to let people know what your approximate budget is....there are homes and areas for $150,000 or developments that have homes in the high six digits....

Look into Boiling Spring Lakes or other interior sections of Brunswick County such as Supply and Bolivia.

Let's just say we are looking for the "nicer" developments.

You're welcome. Just be aware these may not meet your now stated preference for "nicer" developments relative to price.

Quiet beaches would be in the villages near the Cape Hatteras light in the Outer Banks. Also the houses at the far northern end of the Outer Banks, where access is by 4x drive vehicle since there is no paved road that gets you there.

I dont think you are going to find nice+quiet+inexpensive anywhere in North Carolina, to be honest. Economics 101.

I am fully aware that if you want popular features nice and quiet you will need to pay for it, I never said inexpensive.

We really like Sunset Beach but it does get busy and parking is an issue in the summer.

The 1/2 acre, 30 mins from the beach in a development could be a challenge.

We are more familiar with the southern end of Brunswick Co.

For nicer developments look at The Thistle in Calabash and Bald Head Island.

Look at Lockwood Folly outside Holden Beach. It's a nice, quiet older development on the ICW. Existing homes and lot prices are pretty reasonable.
