Cordgrass Bay

Hundreds of acres of vibrant salt marsh crisscrossed by miles of tidal creeks form a natural border between the Intracoastal Waterway and the back side of the north end of Wrightsville Beach. A paddle boarder could navigate for miles without crossing the same creek twice. Along the way she might see green turtles, sting rays, flounder, blue crabs, and jumping mullet. All that without ever looking up. On the banks of those same creeks will be thousands of fiddler crabs, snails and other marine life. If you are ghosting along on an ebb tide, you might be lucky enough to pass right by a Snowy Egret or Great Blue Heron stalking their next meal, but if you make any sudden moves, they will give you a sharp rebuke, spread their majestic wings and sail away.

This landscape is the backyard of Cordgrass Bay, a 60-home community nestled onto a private peninsula surrounded by acres of salt marsh on the backside of Wrightsville Beach. A 25’ slip marina tucked away on the banks of a deep-water lagoon provides access to the northern most navigable water on the island. Hop in your boat and you are minutes from the Intracoastal Waterway. Run a few more minutes south and you are breaking Masonboro Inlet, one of the best gateways to the Atlantic Ocean you will find in the state of North Carolina.

Cordgrass Bay is a very unique community. A low country architectural style blends into the natural landscape in such a subtle fashion that one might drive right by the community entrance without realizing what’s inside; which is a mix of 60 three-bedroom flats and townhomes, clustered in 10 low rise cedar shake buildings. Walking distance to an exquisite white sandy beach, but tucked into a private enclave of heavily landscaped sound side property, Cordgrass Bay provides the best of both worlds. All units have an enclosed garage, in addition to a covered carport, both a rarity for a beach condominium.

A community pool, clubhouse, tennis court, and decked walkways around the entire property create a community feel unlike any other development on the island. So grab your beach towel or paddle board, or fire up the grill, or simply pour yourself a beverage and head down to the dock for the best sunset view on the island. Either way, you can’t go wrong at Cordgrass Bay, one of the best kept secrets on Wrightsville Beach.
