Passage Point is condominiumIn North Carolina, there is a point where elegance meets affordable living. It is called Passage Point at Echo Farms Golf and Country Club and it just might be the ideal home for those wishing to settle in Wilmington.

"Passage Point is condominium living at its best, embracing a 'lock it and leave it' attitude that gives one the freedom to explore everything Wilmington has to offer," explains Holly Donaldson, sales marketing coordinator for Charter Building Group. "

Designed by the nationally recognized and award-winning architects, the Evans Group, Passage Point was completed in August 2008 by Charter Building Group.

Each building at Passage Point is three stories with enclosed foyers, an elevator and covered concrete walkways and stairways for easy access. There are three floor plans to choose from and prices start in the low $200s.

"With a championship golf course in your backyard and the majestic Cape Fear River only steps away, you will not find a better location on the Carolina coast," says Donaldson.

The two- and three-bedroom floor plans feature top of the line finishes including an entry foyer, ten-foot smooth finished ceilings, recessed lighting, gas log fireplaces and eight-foot tall glass patio doors in the great room which open to a private deck overlooking the golf course. It is a great place to enjoy a cup of coffee and greet the day.

Additional features include generous kitchens with granite countertops, ceramic tile, wood cabinets and stainless appliances. Master bedrooms are spacious, with his and her walk-in closets and tray ceilings. The master bath invites relaxation with a garden tub and includes a separate shower.

"Everyone who visits the decorated model is blown away by the elegance and affordability of these condos," Donaldson says. "You just cannot find anything else in this area that rivals Passage Point in quality or value."

Passage Point combines great style with a superb location, excellent amenities and maintenance-free living. Convenient to a newly-built medical center, unique shops, boutiques, churches, fine dining, museums, public library, bike paths, area beaches, marinas and boating access, it is ideal for those seeking an active lifestyle.

Visitors will enjoy strolling along the river walk, touring the historic USS North Carolina Battleship, buying fresh local produce at any one of the area's farmer's markets or taking a romantic horse drawn carriage ride.
