Papa’s World – a view from the new lanai in the new house – Ocean Isle Beach – N.C.

This is the third home we have built – one in Fairfax Va. one in Brambleton Va. and now in Cameron Woods – Ocean Isle Beach – N.C.

When we came down here in late September of 2020 – we had no thought of building a new home.

We simply wanted to check the area out and were interested in the Leland area.

Our friends lived in Magnolia Greens in a golf course community.

We had been visiting them for almost 25 years and loved it there.

But – at that time we had a number in mind and could not find anything to buy.

Our new enclosed lanai – with chairs we saved from the old house.

So – we moved on – to North Myrtle Beach to stay a few months – check out the area and fell in love with it!

The problem then became – while we could find homes in our price range – they all needed updated!

Just not our taste and way to much work to do just that!

We searched for condo’s – but the problem was space and storage and a garage to protect the car.

Then by chance just wandering into a new community and the model – Sherry whispered to me –

I love this concept and want this house!

So – we checked it out and with all the upgrades and getting exactly what we wanted

we were still in our price range!

We would move into N.C. six teen miles from North Myrtle Beach area which gave us a half hour drive back to.

We would be right in the middle of all the golf courses on our first tee card

and almost one half hour closer to our friends in Magnolia greens!

The view out back – the tree line is protected and will not be cleared out!

We signed the contract in mid November and completed the sale and closing on July 2nd. 2021.

We are in our happy place – when we go to the beach – it is a eight minute drive with no traffic

and a 15 minute drive to the other beach.

We are but 2 1/2 minutes to three places to buy food – and lots of bars and grills.

Our doctors are twenty minutes away as is the major hospital.

AND GOLF – four courses right across the street!


We made the right choice – we are where we want to be – Sherry – CERTIFIED HEALTH COACH –

can run her home based business from our new office. (that was one requirement we had)

And I get to sit on the front porch( requirement I had) and also from the open patio and now the lanai!
