The Reserve At Masonboro, near Wilmington, NC
Located on the banks of Hewlett's Creek, The Reserve at Masonboro near Wilmington, N.C. is Logan Construction and Development's premier community.
The 21-acre tract, formerly owned by the Efird family and originally used for farming and fishing, has been developed with a strong commitment to preserving the natural environment. Walking trails wind among magnificent live oaks, swaying palmettos and graceful pines alive with native wildlife such as egrets, wood storks and fox squirrels, and, in addition to Hewlett's Creek's wetlands, five acres have been set aside for green space and common areas.
"What makes The Reserve at Masonboro such a unique opportunity is that homeowners can enjoy waterfront property without owning a waterfront lot or having to pay waterfront prices," Mary Rusher, on-site agent for Logan Real Estate, commented. One unique amenity offered at The Reserve is the special events lawn. Located near the pool and clubhouse, it provides the perfect setting for a Sunday afternoon touch football game.
The Reserve at Masonboro clubhouse has been designed as a 1930s-styled pavilion and provides a spectacular view of Hewlett's Creek and the rest of the community. The 3,000-square-foot building has a full-service kitchen and an indoor stone fireplace and is surrounded by screened and open porches.
