St. James NC St James is a new town, incorporated in 1999, along the southeast coast of North Carolina – just a few miles from the old fishing village of Southport, NC and about 30 miles south of Wilmington, NC. St. James is a town in Brunswick County.
However, if you ask me, St James Plantation is located halfway between the blizzards of the Northeast and the hot and crowded jungle-like climate of Florida. We are near the beach about as far south as you can go and still be in North Carolina. St James surrounds four beautiful golf courses, twelve tennis courts, an excellent marina, and a beach club on the ocean.
We are outside of crowded big city atmosphere but within easy driving distances to Wilmington and Myrtle Beach for those who need to shop and those who need airline transportation. Access into St James Plantation is restricted to residents, family and friends and those who have a legitimate reason to be here. That means a guarded gate and roving security.
If you want to enjoy life with lots of things to do and lots of nice friends and neighbors, St James Plantation is the place.
