At Coldwell Banker Fountain we have seen a lot of beautiful real estate and property over the years, but one of the most beautiful is Emerald Isle Real Estate in North Carolina. Emerald Isle is a town located in Carteret County, a coastal county in the south of North Carolina. Emerald Isle Real Estate are usually a short walk away from the beach, and the town has managed to keep a family-oriented atmosphere for people to enjoy the beach together.

Emerald Isle Geography

The town is situated entirely on Bogue Banks, which together comprise a 21-mile long barrier island. The island's beaches face due south, and there are two bridges leading on and off the island. Bogue Banks is the only island in Carteret County that has been developed, though most of the developments are private houses, with only a few hotels and condominiums on the island. The parts of the island that are undeveloped are either beach or thick maritime forest. The island got its name from these forests; before any development had occurred on the property, it looked like a solid green gem from the air.Picture of Emerald Isle Homes for Sale Pier

Emerald Isle History

Most of the Bogue Banks were owned by a man named Henry Fort in the 1920s. Fort’s plans to develop the beaches into a summer resort were never realized, and the land was passed to his daughter Anita Maulick. A group of 7 individuals bought Emerald Isle from Maulick in 1951 for $350,000, a previously-unheard of amount for Carteret County property. Those individuals split up the land into lots and then divided ownership of the blocks of land randomly by drawing from a hat. Only a few blocks were set aside for hotel or condominium developers; with that, the island has remained family oriented as its buyers wished.

Emerald Isle Attractions

Emerald Isle boasts a number of public parks and beach accesses, all with amenities to make the island more enjoyable for residents and visitors. Bicycling and hiking are encouraged on the island, and there are a plethora of activities for children and families to partake in, from pottery painting to go-carts and mini-golf courses. Swimming, fishing, and all other beach activities are also available and popular at Emerald Isle.
