More than three decades ago, a new kind of community was established on these spectacular Inner Banks: a place that offered full access to the gorgeous waters of the Sound; a private haven where residents could feel both secure and completely free to pursue their passions; a retreat that blended nature, world-class amenities, great golf, and good friends. In 1993, Albemarle Plantation welcomed its first residents. Since, the community has grown to include scores of homes and nearly two thousand residents who enjoy the refreshing, authentically coastal lifestyle it provides. Recognized as ‘America’s 100 Best Places to Live,’ Albemarle welcomes new friends every day who seek beauty, respite, and adventure along the captivating Albemarle Sound.


Albemarle’s location means it’s well connected yet wonderfully tucked away. Situated along North Carolina’s Inner Banks, Albemarle Plantation is a getaway from the hectic pace of city life but bursting with activity and charm. It is bordered by charming small towns, where it’s a pleasure to shop, volunteer, and explore the area’s rich maritime history. Day-to-day conveniences are right at your doorstep, and metro areas are easy to access with Virginia’s Tidewater region only about an hour’s drive.

North Carolina’s Inner Banks

is defined as the more than 3,000 miles of inland coastline that lie about 75 miles west of the famed Outer Banks. Villages, small towns, historic sites, and lore add to the allure of this well-protected waterfront wonderland.
