Bal Gra Harbor is a master-planned community located near Edenton, North Carolina, on the Albemarle Sound. The retirement/second home project is located about 2 hours east of Raleigh, 1.5 hours south of Norfolk, and 1.5 hours northeast of Greenville, making the area accessible and ideal for recreational escape from the larger cities nearby. The area has rich historic context of Edenton (across the river) and its proximity to the water and low cost of living presents an attractive destination for primary and second home residents.
Bal Gra Harbor is comprised of approximately 300 acres within the Inner Banks of North Carolina. Approximately 70 lots are currently available for development, which are located fronting the sound and in the inland estate. Once the area is built-out, it is projected to be part of a comprehensive mixed-use destination in Bertie County. The picturesque views of the Albemarle Sound from the bluff are unique and highly sought after. The water features, local amenities, and quaint charm will set Bal Gra Harbor apart as a distinct residential community.
Entitlements were difficult to attain and the procurement of the existing residential lots provide the venue for future project entitlements.
