Brunswick Forest

Brunswick Forest is prepping for its 2016 Open House Day on July 16 where showcase homes like the Cate Greene from Plantation Building Corp. will be the focal points in a community rich with award-winning homes, unparalleled amenities and convenient access to shopping, dining and medical care.


The Cate Greene’s namesake, Tim Cate—renowned golf architect and the mastermind behind the Cape Fear National® golf course at Brunswick Forest—is well known for his meticulous planning and innovative golf course design. Taking inspiration from the man himself and his unique way of combining premier home sites with a world-class golf experience, the Cate Greene seamlessly blends home and golf in a 3,774-square-foot masterpiece. The angled walls and tall windows along the rear of the home allow for stunning views of the 11th hole of Cape Fear National. Multiple focal points within the home highlight not just the view, but some of the home’s finer design elements, like mahogany woodworking, custom trim details and a beautiful reclaimed river wood fireplace mantel. Plantation Building Corp. went forth with the intention of creating something truly special when planning the Cate Greene. Plantation’s philosophy toward homebuilding begins with the home site, as well as the story and vision of the home’s future owners. The builder prides himself on creating one-of-a-kind homes that are uniquely suited to the owners and the location. The Cate Greene was designed to take full advantage of the abundance of
natural light, the unmatched views of the golf course and water, and keeping foremost in mind the interests and desires of the future homeowner. “When building the Cate Greene, we thought about all of our past clients, and especially our Brunswick Forest neighbors,” says Dave Spetrino, President of Plantation Building Corp. “This home offers the best of everything as it relates to light, space, views, flow and style.”


This distinctive vision for the home mirrors the approach Brunswick Forest has for all of its potential homeowners. “The community has a long-standing belief in not having a one-size-fits-all approach toward home ownership,” says Jerry Helms, Director of Sales for Brunswick Forest. “Residents who choose Brunswick Forest do so in part because of the community’s diverse home offerings and abundance of showpiece homes like the Cate Greene.” Helms continues, “Brunswick Forest has had tremendous success in partnering with unique builders like Plantation Building Corp. to realize extraordinary sales and rapid community growth.” Likewise, Plantation has benefited from the partnership with the community. “New homes in Brunswick Forest represent 50% of our business,” says Spetrino. “We chose to build our Cate Greene idea home in Brunswick Forest because it is the leading community and will continue to be the leading community in the area. It remains the benchmark for new communities, and we know that if there are people considering a move to the Wilmington area, they won’t make that move without first looking at Brunswick Forest.”


In many ways, Plantation Building Corp.’s philosophy when designing the Cate Green mirrors the developer’s vision for Brunswick Forest. Both the home and the community were designed and built to take full advantage of their location and surroundings, and to implement the finest craftsmanship and features to attract a specific customer. Using this model, the community has continued to grow at a steady pace since opening in 2007. “As of June, Brunswick Forest is on track to welcome more than 350 families to the community this year—more than any previous year,” says Helms. “The summer months are especially busy with new visitors touring the community, increased traffic through the Welcome Center and large numbers of visitors staying for the three-day, two-night Coastal Discovery Package in the community’s lovely cottages at Meadow Park.”


Brunswick Forest will see even more guests visiting the community during its upcoming Open House Day on Saturday, July 16, from 10 am until 3 pm. More than 50 showcase homes, including the Cate Greene, will be open and available for touring. Maps of the community and participating homes are available at the Brunswick Forest Welcome Center, 1007 Evangeline Drive, Leland. For more information, call 910.239.3786 or visit
