For Durham residents witnessing a flourishing commerce in their city, it is only natural to crave an escape to a place that evades modern day traffic, noise and other nuisances.
Such a getaway is closer to Durham than many think possible. A two-hour car ride brings Durham families to the shores of the Albemarle Sound, where Scotch Hall Preserve sits soaking in the beauty of North Carolina’s timeless inner coastland. A former civil war plantation, Scotch Hall Preserve has developed a community of homes and cottages without disturbing the sanctity of the region’s historic environment.
Retirees living in the community spend blissful days with a natural breeze on their faces and enjoy endless views of green grass and blue water. These residents celebrate their retirement every day with options to golf on the breathtaking Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course, to sit poolside at the Sound Side Beach Club or to fish, sail or canoe the undisturbed waters of the sound and its creeks. Only 15 miles from the Scotch Hall Preserve are the quaint towns of Edenton and Windsor. Both towns radiate historic southern charm and stun their visitors with beautiful architecture that preserves the coastal region’s cherished past.
