A 160-acre town center made up of more than 500,000 square feet of retail and professional establishments, The Villages at Brunswick Forest places convenient Leland shopping right at residents’ front doors. Brunswick Forest residents can even access The Villages via a network of paths and trails, without ever leaving the neighborhood.

Area Map

If the three most important components of real estate development are location, location, location, then it’s easy to see why Brunswick Forest’s prime location in the coastal South has made it such a tremendous success.

Just 10 minutes from the entrance of Brunswick Forest lies Wilmington, North Carolina’s historic downtown district, with its boutique shops, numerous restaurants and exquisite cultural offerings.

Located about equal distance between New York City and central Florida, Wilmington is a prime coastal South location. Nearby coastal towns offer sandy beaches, while Myrtle Beach, SC, is famous for its golf courses, nightlife, outlet shopping and variety show entertainment. Conveniently, North Carolina’s renowned Triangle area (Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill) is a couple of hours west, just beyond the I-40 and I-95 corridors.

Additionally, the gentle ways and temperate climate of this location make Brunswick Forest the ideal place to live. We hope you’ll visit soon and experience it for yourself.


Community Map

At Brunswick Forest, our idea of the perfect community is one that offers a collection of housing choices and lifestyle opportunities. Here you’ll find a variety of neighborhoods with homes that boast unique architectural styles and home site locations that reflect an abundance of personal choices.

Imagine your beautiful new home overlooking the breathtaking Tim Cate-designed 18-hole championship course, Cape Fear National Premier golf course home sites are currently available, although the selection for these golf course home sites is limited as these are some of Brunswick Forest’s most exceptional properties.
