DJI_0098_SBThe excitement never stops at Arlington Place. New homes are popping up and new neighbors are moving in. If you’ve been waiting, now is the time to go for it. Our Signature Builders are ready to craft a home that caters to your every wish. In no time, you’ll be enjoying the best of Carolina living — where waterfront adventure meets front-porch relaxation. What are you waiting for?

What’s Happening?

We’re excited to say that The Blisswood Cottage, The Bell Cottage and The Sugar Shack Cottage are now under contract, and the Parkview House, Reelin’ in the Years and Creekside Cottage all sold recently!


New neighbors are on the way and current residents are making the most of summer. You don’t have to look far to see friends enjoying crabs on the back porch or BBQ by the pool. Residents are out in full force on boats and kayaks, fishing, or just exploring.


What’s Next?

Start enjoying Arlington Place sooner when you choose a Move-In-Ready Home like the Carolina Cottage. Or choose the to-be-built Heritage Cottage and personalize the home with your favorite features and finishes. Both are perfect for the Arlington Place lifestyle. Which suits your style?

H O O K E D – U P !

brian-drumHappy fellas reel’n in the big guys!  Brian, Justin & Blair (and a few others that forgot to take pictures) were lucky enough to hook and land a few of these monster fish.  These “Old Drum” grace us with their presence every September in the wide waters that surround Arlington Place, proving once again that we have one the best inshore fisheries in the world!  Sssshhhhh, it’s a secret 😉justin-drum

Drum of this size, 50 pounders, are some of the oldest fish on our coast, up to the ripe ol’ age of 40!  Even though they are delicious on your dinner table, these drum are here to spawn, so if you land one don’t get too attached…..drum over 27″ are all catch and release.  Rig of choice: poppin cork with a DOA soft plastic.  Bait of choice: fresh cut mullet on a circle hook.

blair-drumOur local waters come alive this time of year.   Drum, tarpon, crabs, shrimp, flounder and speckled trout all call the waters of #CoastalCarolina home.  Add this to the lllooonnnggg list of reasons why so many people L O V E #RiverLife.

The Latest on NINE New AP Homes!

More cool new homes with even cooler new neighbors calling Arlington Place home!  Dream homes have become a reality or are becoming a reality all over the neighborhood.  So if you can’t make it to Arlington Place soon to see for yourself, here’s a few shots from my camera roll from a weekend drive around the hood…..  

Looks who’s HOME on Wild Cherry Lane!  The Rockwells have been busy decorating and landscaping and are happy to put down roots (on dry land) in their blue nautical beauty.  Rockwell

The Raggio’s are close to making Golden Fern Lane their new coastal address.  The detail in this amazing creekfront home is unlike I’ve ever seen….if it looks this good under construction, we cannot wait to see the finished masterpiece!Raggio

Our last 3 Outfitter’s Cottages are nearing the finish line.  Guests are already enjoying the Creekside Cottage, and the Sugar Shack and Reeln in the Years are getting their finishing touches over the next few weeks.  RENT NOW ON AIRBNB!20170526_140840

The Broughton’s home on Cotton Court is such a cool floorplan, cozy when you need it but plenty of room to stretch out for Chris and Cali, and their boys Ayden and Liam.  It’s actually happening Cali :)Broughton 2

The Zambito’s get to check in on their home away from home when they visit this week.  A picture simply doesn’t do the creek and sunset views justice, so I hope they brought some chairs and wine for their first (of many) happy hours on their back porch!Zambito

Wright and Ellen Sizemore moved from Lake Norman to Oriental last year to live like a local and make sure this was, in fact, where they wanted to land.  Well, I think they ended up liking it because their new home on Willow Cove Lane is now under construction.  Can’t wait to have them here full time, Ellen’s the best cook in town!Sizemore2

So who’s on deck?  The ground has officially been broken for the MacMahon’s new forever home, the first house on Wild Turkey Lane.  Looks like Stroud Custom Homes is going to have a busy summer, we’re ready if you are Gilbert!MacMahon

Come for a visit see for yourself why so many people want to call Arlington Place home.  Are you ready for #RiverLife?

“Exploring the Magic in Minnesott Beach”


If you want to know bit more about Arlington Place from an unbiased, first hand account, then this article is a must-read!  Seems that our little slice of heaven was the perfect setting for work and play for a few of our recent cottage guests who just happen to have a fun new travel website,  Timing is everything in real estate, but for many of us, we’ve learned that there isn’t an exact science to timing this crazy market.  LeAnne & Jim found this out in a big way when their house sold very quickly and they still had a few months before they could move into a new one.  Now temporarily homeless with two kids and a dog, they searched on AirBnB, happened upon our cottage listings and booked the 35 North Cottage at Arlington Place.  Well, from this article, it sounds like they liked it here okay and made many memories along the way.  Here’s a few snippets from “Exploring the Magic in Minnesott Beach, NC”…..

“Just 20 minutes east of the 300 year old historic city of New Bern North Carolina lies a magical coastal gem that mostly only locals know about.  This little treasure, known as Minnesott Beach, is tucked away on the Pamlico sound.  This “off the grid” town is home to less than 600 people, and you won’t find your usual fast food  or high-rise hotels here.  No, this is not a tourist spot that is overrun and overdone.  It’s a little piece of heaven for those that get to experience its charms and natural beauty….a nature and water lovers paradise.” ………”As you meander through the winding and peaceful roads, past the long leaf pines of Minnesott Beach, you come upon Arlington Place.  As you venture in, be sure to stop in the Welcome Center where Becca, Blair, and Peyton will extend an abundance of southern hospitality – this is just a prelude to the beauty that awaits you inside.  Residents and visitors alike take advantage of world class boating, fishing, sailing, and kayaking.”……….”We truly enjoyed our stay at Arlington Place!  We took full advantage of all the amenities they had to offer and hope that you will discover and experience it for yourself.  Although a picture is said to be worth a thousand words, the true magic must be experienced to be felt!  So enjoy one of Eastern North Carolina’s  best kept secrets before the rest of the world finds it!!”


Thanks for sharing the article LeAnne & Jim and good luck with!  We hope that Arlington Place will always be a local escape for you and your family.  And come back this summer, there’s something new to do and explore each season!
