MOREHEAD CITY, N.C., April 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Bogue Watch is coming back to life, just as its new owners promised last May when they acquired the 196-acre marina community on the Intracoastal Waterway near Morehead City, NC.
Landeavor LLC of Tampa and Walton Street Capital L.L.C. of Chicago today announced the sale of 65 homesites in Bogue Watch to Savvy Homes of Raleigh, NC.
According to Adam Lorry, principal of Landeavor LLC, Savvy Homes will begin construction of a model home immediately, with completion expected by summer. Prices in the new neighborhood will start in the low $300's, he said.
