    Margie Casey's Scorecard:

    It's hard to beat this community's safe harbor directly on the Intracoastal Waterway, just west of Holden Beach. Not only a gated marina community, Seascape has a private beach club on Holden Beach. Established in the mid 2000's, SeaScape at Holden Plantation is an established waterfront community in coastal North Carolina built by Mark Saunders of Coastal Communities Inc. We noticed luxury home builder Mark Saunders has refined taste and a pattern of signature designs in their communities; s-shaped roads, lushly landscaped walking trails, ornate gated entrances, attractive coastal architecture and grand clubhouses.

    Of the lifestyle amenities found at SeaScape at Holden Plantation, the deep water access and 75 boat slips in a protected marina are the most valuable assets to property owners with boats and sailboats at SeaScape. Boaters at Seascape at Holden Plantation can immediately access to the Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean, by passing around the northern tip of Holden Beach, only a few minutes away. Fish, shrimp and oysters are fresh seafood easily caught in the ocean, marshes and waterways of the coastal islands.

    The Grande Manor House is the community clubhouse with an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, fitness center, sauna, meeting space, library and a commercial kitchen for entertaining. At SeaScape at Holden Plantation, the walking paths weave throughout the community under old live oak trees. Protected conservation areas add to the privacy and beauty of the natural wetlands of this waterfront community.
