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


On the mainland, just across the Intracoastal Waterway from Oak Island, lies one of southeastern North Carolinas best-kept secrets. A coastal wonderland, St James Plantation has a little something for everyone.


What started as the dream of a few local developers officially opened for building in 1991.  Over the years, St James Plantation has been transformed from 6,000 acres of raw coastal land with a lot of potential into a thriving incorporated community featuring its own Fire Department and EMS.  Thankfully developers have worked hard to retain much of the unique low country feel of the area.


St James residents are able to take full advantage of the mild Coastal Carolina climate thanks to the wealth of amenities offered by the community.  Golfers are especially delighted by the four championship courses that take advantage of the stunning coastal landscape.  With 81 holes, practice greens, a driving range, pro shops, and tournaments scheduled throughout the year, hitting the links couldn't be easier.


If golf isn't your thing, there are plenty of other ways to get out and enjoy all that St James has to offer.  Many residents enjoy the 15 miles of trails that meander throughout the development.  Nature trails snake through the thriving ecosystems of salt marshes and forests and a boardwalk hugs the banks of the Intracoastal Waterway.  This walkable community also includes plenty of sidewalks.


Looking to get a little closer to the water than the boardwalk allows?  The St James Plantation Marina gives the community full access to the Intracoastal only 5 minutes by boat from the Atlantic.  This full-service marina has 155 wet slips and over 300 dry storage spaces.  Tommy’s Market and a Grill & Tiki Bar are on hand for boaters to enjoy after a long day on the water.


Most important among the benefits of living in St James Plantation is its superb location.  Just minutes from Oak Island, a day at the beach is a regular thing for residents.  For shopping and entertainment, the historic fishing village of Southport is right next door to St James and offers plenty of dining options.  Want to get into town?  Regional hub Wilmington and its airport are less than an hour drive away.
