Compass Pointe Homes
Compass Pointe is one of the most beautiful communities in our area. It’s surrounded and dotted with conservation areas, Audubon preserves, ponds, and canals. Many homesites have views and private back yards, with lot sizes varying from a 1/4 of an acre up to almost a full acre, depending on the type of home. No matter the size, each property is professionally landscaped with lush foliage that blends in well with the surrounding landscape.
There are over 15 sub-communities spanning a wide range of needs and budgets. The community has been in existence since 2009, so over 225 properties have already been built, but there’s still plenty more available. This gives buyers the stability of an existing home community and the power to customize their dream home.
There are 13 builders in Compass Pointe, many of which have built in other communities around the Wilmington area: Horizon Homes, Logan Homes, Firetti Builders, Wilsey Custom Homes, Trusst Builder Group, Plantation Building Corp, The Cottages, Liberty Homes, Southern Homebuilders, Laurel Homes, Legacy Homes by Bill Clark, Hagood Homes, and Jordan Built Signature Homes. They deliver custom and semi-custom homes in the southern styles that serve our area so well – cottages, low country, plantation, etc. They include many of the features popular among buyers today – front porches, coffered ceilings, trey ceilings, open floors plans, wainscoting, built-in shelving, granite, tile backsplashes, screened porches, master suites with separate showers, and bonus rooms. Plus, they try to include materials and features that improve energy efficiency, many providing a third-party guarantee. Between all of the floor plans provided by these builders, there’s sure to be something for everyone. Many plans have optional rooms, features, and elevations, so no two homes are the same.
If you’re looking for something low maintenance, Compass Pointe also has townhomes. Just as much time and attention has been paid to designing these units as the single-family detached houses. They have open floor plans to really maximize the feeling of spaciousness inside and include many of the popular features found in the community’s houses, including covered front porches, foyers, family rooms, dining rooms, master suites, flex rooms, coffered ceilings, trey ceilings, transom windows, built-ins, hardwood flooring, and screened porches. The exterior maintenance and insurance is handled by an association and all of the building owners share the financial responsibility. Further details concerning the rules and regulations of townhomes at Compass Pointe are available upon request.

The Active Lifestyle
Compass Pointe is truly an active community. There are several scheduled events that happen throughout the month, including pickleball, bocce ball, exercise classes (Zumba, Yoga, Pilates, aerobics, spin, etc.), art classes, tennis, Bible study, canasta, poker, and holiday themed events. These events are a great way to meet new people, and the community is filled with warm, friendly faces, so it’s very hard not to feel welcome.
One of the community’s newest amenities is the Compass Pointe Golf Club. The community has scheduled classes (from beginner to seasoned) and clubs that meet weekly. This 18-hole championship golf course was designed by Rick Robbins, whose designs can be seen throughout the United States and in China, Indonesia, Thailand and Malaysia. This course has been designed to be both challenging and fun. It includes optional family tees for junior players, older players, and a social experience. It also has an optional 19th hole for settling wagers, a short course, a chipping green, driving range, and practice bunker. Residents of Compass Pointe are welcome to purchase a membership or play as they go. At the time of this post, current Double-Eagle membership packages provide unlimited play for both Compass Pointe and nearby Magnolia Greens Golf Course.
Compass Pointe does have a homeowner’s association that requires an annual fee. It covers maintenance of the clubhouse, fitness center, swimming pool, common areas, roads, sidewalks, and tennis courts, as well as security fees, management fees, and common area taxes. More info on the HOA and Compass Pointe’s rules and regulations are available upon request.
At the time of this post, Compass Pointe is zoned for the Lincoln Elementary School, Leland Middle School, and N. Brunswick High School district. However, planned school improvements and redistricting does happen every few years, so schools should always be verified. To learn more about the performance of these schools, you can see the most recent school report cards here.
