For many years Indigo Plantation and Marina has been recognized as a Southport neighborhood that has something very special to offer. Sharing many of the design elements of its sister development Bald Head Island, the developer's influence is visible for all to see. Without a doubt, the ancient and natural maritime forest is the star in this marsh and Intracoastal Waterway setting with close attention being paid to ensure that harmony exists between the environment and the community. The coastal lifestyle is enhanced by a private owners' clubhouse, tennis courts, and outdoor pool located just steps away. Boaters will find the marina's proximity to the lot an added bonus, easily accessed by a leisurely stroll or bike ride. Within Indigo, and the Southport area for that matter, there are a very few special properties with towering live oaks that fringe the marsh and enjoy views of the ever-changing beauty of the coastal waters. Even fewer have the opportunity to add a dock to further enhance the experience and, as is always the case, properties of this type are normally the first to sell. Rare as these home sites are, a change in retirement plans for the current owners means that we are able to offer a fabulous property for sale. This very private lot is framed by magnificent oaks and fronts the tidal water of Cottage Creek. In 1996, it was the owners' original intent to build their custom home nestled amongst the forest while capturing the expansive marsh, wildlife, and Creek views and of boats cruising the ICW. They planned to build a private dock to the Creek to enjoy views of the vast open marsh areas & wildlife behind Caswell Beach, and the towering Oak Island Lighthouse, as well as views of tall ships passing in & out of the Cape Fear River, towards historic "Old Baldy" Lighthouse on Bald Head Island, and to enjoy the beautiful sunrises over all of this. Their change in plan creates a wonderful opportunity to purchase this truly one of a kind home site that has been held by the sellers for 22 years and where, over the years, several inquiries have been made to find out whether they would sell. Here is the very rare opportunity to acquire this almost half acre property and to start on your own coastal home plans. The Listing Agent, Donald Howarth, was the broker of the original sale in 1996. As a long time resident of the area, an Indigo Plantation and Marina property owner, and former Indigo POA President, Donald's involvement in the development of the neighborhood makes him an excellent source for understanding of, and for the buying and selling of, Indigo Plantation properties.
