LANDFALL is located in Wilmington, North Carolina, along the coastline directly on the Intracoastal Waterway and across from Wrightsville Beach.
The property was formerly known as Pembroke Jones Park which was named after Pembroke Jones, the millionaire rice broker and railroad investor. In 1909 he built a large mansion, known as the Lodge where he entertained friends from New York and local society where he used the heavily wooded property as a hunting preserve. The Lodge was destroyed by fire in 1955.
The name Landfall came from the belief that Italian explorer Giovanni de Verrazano landed on or near the site during his 1524 voyage up the Atlantic Seaboard for King Francis I of France.
The property was developed in 1987 and is now an exclusive gated community of 2,200 acres with over 2,000 home sites. Most of the homeowners come from all parts of the United States and live here year round and call it home. Landfall offers two complete golf courses which were designed by Jack Nicklaus and Pete Dye, a sports center designed by tennis star, Cliff Drysdale, an Olympic sized swimming pool and a fitness center and a non-denominational Frank H. Kenan Chapel.
Today, Landfall is the largest coastal gated golf community of its kind. A diverse mixture of homes offer a unique setting for luxury homes with stunning views of the Intracoastal Waterway, Atlantic Ocean, Howe’s Creek, Wrightsville Beach, and rolling fairways of world class golf courses. A member owned private Country Club, proximity to excellent shopping, restaurants and Wrightsville Beach make Landfall Wilmington’s premier address.
