Figure Eight represents the pinnacle of private-island life. Jutting out into coastal waters just north of Wrightsville Beach, the exclusive community is reserved for those desiring only the best in waterfront real estate. North Carolina residents familiar with quality beach living know of Figure Eight’s posh status.
Built on a landscape of tranquility and seclusion, the island consists of less than 500 homes. Moreover, it is accessible only via a guarded causeway bridge. With no commercial development to hinder natural aesthetics, the island preserves a vacation-like atmosphere.
Still, there is no shortage of entertainment options. Water related activities, biking, tennis and birding act as beacons for those researching houses for sale in North Carolina near the beach. It contains five miles of pristine beaches and has a yacht club as well as a number of boat ramps. Although it glories in its isolation, Figure Eight Island is only minutes away from fine restaurants, beautiful golf courses and retail outlets.
Prices here average more than two million dollars. Figure Eight is notable for the celebrities and politicians who own homes or have vacationed here, as well as being an occasional location for television and movie productions.
Combined town and county property taxes for 2013 are $0.63 per $100 of valuation. (Personal property such as autos, trucks, boats, aircraft, motor homes, business assets, etc. are taxed at the same rate as real property.) As with all beach communities, wind and hail and flood insurance is expensive.
