Custom Home Builders In Oak Island Serving Southport, Oak Island, St. James, Winding River and Surrounding areas of Brunswick County

At the mouth of the Cape Fear River sits an island that brings together equal parts history, natural beauty, and classic beach town to form an ideal home for residents and visitors alike.  Oak Island, located in Brunswick County North Carolina, is one of the state’s pristine barrier islands and is home to two towns Oak Island to the west and Caswell Beach to the east.


With its first permanent buildings constructed in the 1830’s a part of the Confederate Fort Caswell, Oak Island has plenty of history to share with its residents.  The Army, Air Force, and Coast Guard maintained a large presence on the island through the end of World War II and their legacy remains visible with the civil war era earthworks of Fort Caswell and the Oak Island Lighthouse looking over the island to this day.


As expected the surrounding waters are a big draw for those who decide to build oak island homes.  With 10 miles of unspoiled beaches, two fishing piers, two marinas, and acres of wild salt marshes, there are plenty of ways to get out and enjoy the water around the Island.


Back on land, Oak Island is one of four Brunswick County beaches known for their classic beach town vibe.  With ice cream shops, mini-golf, and plenty of traditional beach houses mixed in with more modern homes, Oak Island is a perfect mix of nostalgia and waterfront luxury.


While the undeveloped feel of of the island is one of the main draws for many residents, Oak Island is conveniently located a short drive from regional population centers and transportation hubs.  Just across the intracoastal waterway from the island sits the Cape Fear Regional Jetport and a mere 30 miles from the international airport located in Wilmington NC, Oak Island is simultaneously secluded and close to all the action.  


Many a visitor to Oak Island has decided this quaint beach town would make an excellent permanent home, or location for a vacation home.  For over 40 years the team at Southern Shores Development has been turning dream homes into reality for their customers.
