The Lakes at Pine Forest is a new single-family home community off Highway 211 on the mainland of the Town of Oak Island, NC. The community features a swimming pool, fitness center, walking trails, and parks (amenities in development), and is located just 30 minutes to Wilmington and 15 minutes to the beach on the island. It's also 1 hour and 20 minutes from the shopping outlets and shows in Myrtle Beach, SC.
Pine Forest is a community designed to incorporate health and wellness, which is why it is proving to be popular among buyers who are active retirees. It is not an age-restricted community, but the developer's vision was to help homeowners "age in place", so they can enjoy their homes for years to come. There's an onsite Novant Health medical campus with local physicians, as well as senior assisted living options. There's also a commercial area in the works that will feature dining, services, shopping, and entertainment.
Homes in The Lakes at Pine Forest are being built by Trusst Builder Group and Bill Clark Homes (Legacy Homes by Bill Clark).
