I am an out of towner looking for places within Brunswick Co. area. Someone mentioned to me about these cool houses that are on stilts! I love the beach and love different looking houses but can't really afford the "beach front" kind of houses. Anyone know what community this is called? Only other thing I know is that they are somewhere around Hwy 133 or River Rd.

Thanks

I know of some houses on stilts near River Road (Carolina Beach bridge) in Wilmington not Brunswick Co. Brunswick Co is HUGE so I'm sure there are some down there...just not familiar w/the neighborhoods there.

this is what I have found so far. Charleston Homes
Charleston Common, Leland

Teachers, firefighters, police officers and others in public service get a 1 percent discount on the base price of detached townhomes at Charleston Common, on N.C. 133 south of Wilmington on the Jackey’s Creek marsh, according to Laura Heal, builder representative for Raleigh-based Charleston Homes.

The two- and three-bedroom townhomes are joined only by front steps and are two stories on pilings.

Some have direct views of the marsh, Heal said.

Base prices start at $209,990 and range into the $230,000s, she said. An on-site sales center is open.

The homes are clad in Hardiplank siding and have 9-foot ceilings on both floors.

The development, which will eventually have 88 units, will have a pool, cabanas and walking trails on the approximately 22-acre site.

Charleston Common’s discount incentive is called “Hometown Heroes” and is available to police officers, sheriff’s deputies, teachers from elementary through college, firefighters, emergency medical technicians and all military.

Buyers can choose between the “Hometown Heroes” discount or a package of $2,000 toward closing costs and a free stainless-steel appliance upgrade. Restrictions apply.

More information: 383-3705
