Country Living With "In Town" convenience.........

Country living with “In Town” convenience

By:  Brian FitzSimons, Realtor

If you ever had the desire to build  a secluded retreat with all the comforts of home, but surrounded by wilderness, yet within ten minutes of shops, hospitals, a Marina and Golf, then you are aspiring to the Carolina East Lifestyle, and I know just the property where you can bring all this to fruition.  

Main Gate To River Sound

Riversound is, as the name suggests, located on a river, but close to the Albemarle Sound.    It is 1,000 acres of unspoiled forest bordered by the Yeopim River.   This development got off to a rocky start just as the 2008 downturn in the Real Estate market occurred, leading to the Bankruptcy of the original developer.

(Link to Riversound HOA website,, )

All that is in the past, the development has been taken over by the homeowners, the roads are in, there is a launch ramp and a clubhouse as well as a sheltered marina where you can keep your boat, a children’s playground, and a state of the art sewage system is in operation allowing anyone to obtain their building permits and build.   


There are many spectacular waterfront lots, but if you don’t mind a few minutes drive, you can save lots of money by investing in one of the non-waterfront lots, and keep your boat at the development’s private marina.

If total seclusion and privacy are what you are looking for, there are farmette acreage lots designed for people who would like to have a mini farm or would prefer not to see their neighbors.   These mini acreages are where you can have all the amenities close to hand, but still feel like you are the only ones left in the world.  

Due to the slow start and problems at the beginning of the development, many of the original buyers of the lots have been forced to look elsewhere to realize their dreams.   This means that there are many lots for sale at knockdown prices.  I know of one 16 acre lot that you can snap up now for under $50,000.    Some smaller residential lots can be purchased for around $20,000, which considering the amenities is a steal.   

I can’t think of anywhere else around here that you can join the Carolina East Lifestyle and get so much for so little.   This opportunity will not last long.   Once the word gets out, Riversound will become one of the most desirable neighborhoods, and lots will become hard to get at any price.
