The Cape Real Estate for Sale

About The Cape

Enjoy coastal living at The Cape. This vibrant community is ideally located on the southern Cape Fear peninsula across from the Cape Fear River and less than a mile from Snow’s Cut Bridge, which leads to miles of pristine beaches that make up Pleasure Island.

The Cape offers a variety of architectural styles and home types, ranging from condominiums, townhomes, patio homes, golf course villas, single-family homes, and custom estate homes. Architectural styles range from traditional, brick, colonial, transitional, cottage, low-country, coastal and contemporary, thus creating a unique streetscape, and satisfying most tastes.

The Cape is suitable for both active families and retirees. The community is semi-private, with gated access only from River Road. Once you drive through the stately entrance on Carolina Beach Road, you will understand why The Cape is a wonderful place to call home.

Residents enjoy walking and bike riding on over seven miles of private streets. Golfers enjoy the luxury and convenience of a world-class, premium, semi-private golf course, designed by architect, Bob Moore, from JMP Golf Design Group. Formerly known as “The Cape Golf and Racquet Club,” the course reopened in 2009 as the “Masonboro Country Club.” The developers spared no expense on the 7,000 yard course with Mini-Verde Bermuda Greens, boasting over 80 acres of newly sodded turf, practice areas, complete with a 7-acre driving range, Pro Shop, and restaurant, with indoor and outdoor dining options.

Each hole has five sets of tees, enhancing the challenge and playability for all proficiency levels. Lush indigenous plants, grasses and palms were planted throughout the course, as well as throughout the community, providing an updated, coastal sanctuary, which is meticulously maintained by the homeowner’s association.

The Cape is located outside of the city limits, so residents enjoy lower property taxes. HOA dues vary within the community. For single-family homes, residents pay approximately $45.00/monthly. Townhomes, condominiums, and patio homes have higher HOA dues, but typically include lawn maintenance, and may also include a master insurance policy.

The Cape is conveniently located near shopping, restaurants, Carolina Beach, Kure Beach, Fort Fisher, state parks, public boat launches, and is just a short drive to medical facilities, the airport, UNCW, and historic downtown Wilmington. Enjoy the spectacular sunsets over the Cape Fear River!
