Shallotte, NC, United States, 2008/01/28 - Wakefield Development Company’s newest master-planned community, San Rio Ocean & River Club, located in Shallotte, NC, has announced that it will be the first ENERGY STAR® qualified, master-planned community along the coast of NC.
The builder team includes Accent Design Build II, LLC, Dawol Homes, Geoff Weatherwax Construction, Inc., SBW Home Builders, LLC and Whitney Blair, Inc.
A unique Carolina Caribbean Low-country-style community, San Rio’s builder team will offer homebuyers today’s popular features in second-home design, plus energy-efficient improvements that deliver better performance, greater comfort and lower utility bills.
“We saw a great opportunity to offer a more energy-efficient option along the North Carolina coast,” said Jim Wiseman, senior vice president of Wakefield Development Company’s Coastal Division. “With only three percent of new homes in North Carolina ENERGY STAR® qualified, it made sense to align ourselves with a strong builder team that had experience building to the strict EPA guidelines.”
In addition to energy-efficient homes, San Rio offers a resort-style amenity package unlike anything currently found along the North Carolina coast, including a world-class, resort-style pool with waterfall, private cabanas, a grotto area, tiki bar terrace, outdoor fireplace, kids’ water world and splash zone and much, much more. Other proposed amenities include a themed indoor aquatic center, beach zone, tennis court, lazy river, nature trails and fitness center.
Wakefield Development Company entered the coastal market last year with the launch of San Rio Ocean & River Club and Kingfish Bay, located along the Calabash River. Residences at Kingfish Bay will enjoy a nautical-inspired community that offers townhomes and villas with spectacular views of the Calabash River.
