The historic coastal town of New Bern, NC, and its newest residential community, Carolina Colours, are no strangers to
Best Places To Retire lists. The latest feather
in its revolutionary-era cap, New Bern
has recently been named among “ 10 great
boating towns to retire, play and thrive” by
BOAT US magazine (June/July 2013).
It’s that combination of an enchanting
and authentically historic downtown with
an amenities-rich new community that
makes Carolina Colours so unusual—and
Sited on a forested expanse that is
bisected by a creek and flanked by a 25-acre
lake, Carolina Colours boasts breathtaking
natural beauty that is easily navigated by
bicycle, golf cart or on foot. Pocket parks
throughout invite all ages to come out and
play or simply relax.
The social activity centers around the
17,000 sq. ft. clubhouse and the 10,000 sq. ft.
of decking surrounding the newly opened
swimming facility. Activities are frequent
and eclectic, including exercise, yoga,
bridge, among many, to complement food
and drink. The clubhouse patio overlooks
the ninth hole of the Bill Love-designed
championship golf course. Expertly laid out
in the heavily wooded and gently rolling
topography, the course wins accolades for
its design and maintenance.
However, according to its residents, the
most attractive attribute of Carolina Colours
is the mix of people who call it home.
People point out the warm and welcoming
environment, and describe the community
as a family. Home sizes and styles range
from cozy to grand, and neighbors blend
casually and comfortably.
