Battery Park Sets Grand Opening

Posted by

Landfall Realty and Venture Homes of Coastal Carolina celebrated the Grand Opening of Battery Park on the weekend of April 8th and 9th. Battery Park is Landfall’s newest neighborhood, conveniently located near the community’s Eastwood Gate and the Drysdale Sports Center. It features 24 new homes designed in the coastal vernacular and built by John Lancaster of Venture Homes, one of Wilmington’s most respected custom home builders.

Eight homesites offer great views of Landfall Pete Dye Signature Golf Course, while several more back up to conservation areas for added privacy. The homes will range in size from 2,600 to 3,300 square feet, with house/lot packages starting at $650,000, according to Landfall Realty. One home is completed, and a second should be ready for move-in April. A third home is under construction, with completion expected by late summer.

Perhaps the best thing about the new neighborhood is the builder behind it. John Lancaster founded Venture Homes in the early 1990s and built his first home in Landfall shortly afterward. Since then he’s completed well over 200 more homes here, including many of the best-built and most architecturally impressive in the community. “I’ve always said that Landfall sets the standard for coastal communities in the Carolinas,” Lancaster said. “Everything here is done to a higher level. As far as I’m concerned, Landfall is the best community on the East Coast.”

Wrightsville Beach Elementary School will be able to hire a full-time teaching assistant and two part-time tutors next year, thanks to the 4th annual Casino Night held on February 4th at The Country Club of Landfall, sponsored by the WBS Foundation.  This year’s event – which attracted more than 250 people and a record number of sponsors – was the most successful yet, according to Beth Adams of The WBS Foundation.

The Foundation was founded in 2012 to provide extra financial support to the school. During that time, the Foundation has played an important role in the school’s rise to national renown, culminating in its recent selection as one of the 100 best elementary schools in the country.

Over the years, the Foundation has helped the school purchase a variety of supporting technology and materials, including IPads, SmartBoards™, books, manuals, and more. This year’s donation is the first to go for human resources, Adams said.

Landfall Realty has been a proud supporter of the WBS Foundation since its inception and has sponsored the Casino Night event since it started.

Landfall Realty Welcomes Lazzaro

Posted by

We’re excited to announce that Kelli Lazzaro is the newest member of the Landfall Realty sales team.  While she may be new to Landfall Realty, she’s no stranger to the Landfall community.   In fact, she probably knows more about the Landfall lifestyle than most of the real estate professionals in the Wilmington area.  That’s because she served as Membership and Marketing Director of the Country Club of Landfall for the last 15 years, helping produce a dramatic increase in membership and overseeing its emergence as one of the premier private clubs in North Carolina and the entire Southeast.                 

“Kelli is a great addition to our team,” says Ken Kirkman, Landfall Realty General Manager. “She knows practically everybody in the community. But more importantly they know her. They trust her. And they know how dedicated she is to this community and how hard she’s worked on its behalf.”                 

Kelli is a Massachusetts native who came south to attend UNC-Wilmington. Until earning her real estate license, she spent her entire professional career in private club management.  “Real estate is the perfect move for me,” Kelli said. “I enjoy working with people and helping them fulfill their dreams. I’m so grateful to Landfall Realty for this opportunity.”

Kelli and her husband, Andy, have two daughters and two “crazy” dogs. They enjoy an active coastal lifestyle – boating, kayaking, and just relaxing on the beach.
