Featured Community: Fortune Place, Wilmington

Located between College Road and Carolina Beach Road in the Monkey Junction area is a brand new affordable home community called Fortune Place. Future residents are sure to love the wooded enclave, recreation areas, and large ponds spread throughout the community. Sidewalks located on both sides of the street make it easy to access the site of the clubhouse and swimming pool, and local shopping and dining is just a short drive away. There are just 38 homesites in the first phase of Fortune Place and many lots back up to ponds and natural wooded areas.

Currently, there are two builders in Fortune Place – Herrington Homes and Horizon Homes. Both provide a myriad of energy efficient house plans that will save you money on your utility bills and can be altered to suit your lifestyle. No two homes will look alike and all will be built with high-grade materials. Both builders boast standard features that other builders consider “upgrades”, including some that take advantage of the community’s natural gas.

Herrington is providing customizable plans from their Craftsman Collection starting in the high $200s. Features include covered front porches, low maintenance vinyl siding, open floor plans, high ceilings, hardwood flooring, stainless steel appliances, granite counters, 42” Markraft cabinets with crown molding, natural gas fireplaces, and professional landscaping. Each home is energy performance certified by a third party.

Horizon is taking a more flexible approach. Buyers will sit down with the builder, who will work with over 40 plans to design a home around their needs, lifestyle, and budget. Standard features include custom state-of-the-art kitchens, granite counters, 42” cabinets, hardwood flooring, high ceilings, double garages, screened porches, tankless gas water heaters, and energy efficient natural gas heating and air-conditioning systems. They strive to buy materials locally first and then focus on American-made lines. Homes will start in the $300s.
