I have been highlighting my best-loved Southport area the communities for three or four years now. Indigo Plantation has always been a favorite of mine and I’m happy to finally get around to featuring one of the very best neighborhoods Southport has to offer.
For years, Indigo Plantation was the departure location for Bald Head Island’s mainland ferry operation. Its top-notch marina facilities and easy access to the Intracoastal Waterway, the Cape Fear River and beyond, are trumped by its quiet in-town location just a 5 minute bike ride to downtown Southport.
Originally developed by Bald Head Island Ltd, the preservation of the natural landscape is evident at every turn. Homes rise gently up from their surroundings as though they might have been dropped in by helicopter. Now that Bald Head has moved their mainland operation to Deep Point Marina near the Ft. Fisher Ferry, Indigo has emerged as a quiet getaway with a private marina, clubhouse, pool and tennis courts. 20'-40' Boat slips are available for sale or lease to accommodate a variety of vessels to suit sailers, cruisers, and fishermen.
Currently there are 2 townhomes available in the low $200s, and 4 single homes ranging in price from $380-650K. As far as lots, there are 11 on the market in the $100-450K range. If you want to have a look for yourself, here is a user-friendly MLS search. For POA information click HERE.
I’ve been lucky enough to call Southport home for 25 years now. If you’ve ever thought seriously about relocating to the area, I can say with all honesty, there has never been a better time. If you have any questions about Indigo or any other Southport area neighborhoods, I’d love to hear from you. You can email me or call me at 910.540.0551.
