​Along West Drive, the project will consist of both detached single-family dwellings and mixed use buildings with commercial space on the ground floor and two-story residential units situated above the commercial space.  Features will include a swimming pool, a fire pit, access to bicycle racks and convenient access to commercial venues and the beach.

The following lots are now under contract and no longer available: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 9, 10, 20A, 20B, 22A and 22B.  There’s still time to identify your choice of remaining lots: 6, 7, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19A, 19B, 21A and 22B.

The ground floor commercial spaces will have around 450 square feet. The two-story residences situated above will have 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, around 800 square feet and luxurious, high end finishes. A few details include porches with high ceilings, wood floors in multiple rooms, ceramic tile bathroom floors and much more. An extensive list of special features is available here. The commercial spaces are available for between $77,000 and $79,000. Prices for the 2 bedroom residences above range from just $221,000 to $232,000. Delightful floor plans include the Bodie Island, Hatteras, Cape Lookout, Currituck, and Ocracoke. Alternate floor plans are now available for lots 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15.

In addition to the mixed use structures, The Lookouts will feature 15 detached single-family residences. There will be six properties with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and about 1,000 square feet. Also, 9 properties will have 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and approximately 1,200-1,300 square feet. These properties will have the same fine interior appointments noted above.

This impressive project is part of an ongoing, dynamic transformation of the Atlantic Beach Circle. Two restaurants have already opened. The Idle Hour Biergarten at 121 Atlantic Boulevard offers bratwurst, sandwiches, soup and salad. There’s also bier by the glass, pint, stein and bottle as well as wine and cocktails.

The Grove Oceanside

The Grove Oceanside is situated just east of the oceanfront Crab’s Claw Restaurant, an established favorite offering eclectic cuisine. Once complete, the Grove Oceanside will consist of five multi-story, oceanfront homes with luxurious touches throughout. Each property will feature approximately, 2,400 heated square feet, eye-popping attention to detail, quality furnishings throughout, a large garage, an elevator and individual oceanfront swimming pools. These impressive properties have already established themselves as vacation rental favorites.

  • The Cottages at The Grove.

Several other residences were recently built near the northeast corner on East Bogue Blvd. at The Cottages at The Grove. This section is just east and outside the footprint of what most consider to be “The Circle.” This area has coastal style single-family residences with three to four bedrooms, between 1,200 and 2,400 square feet and expansive decking for fine outdoor living. Interior finishes vary, but common features include open floor plans, solid surface counters, stainless steel appliances and exquisite attention to detail. Five of these properties ranging from $320,000 to $399,900 have sold through MLS.
