Pelican Pointe is a mixed use development consisting of 263 townhomes, single-family homes, and lots bordering the beautiful Pasquotank River.
Located approximately four miles from downtown Elizabeth City and within its city limits, the community borders the U.S. Coast Guard Station Elizabeth City, commissioned in 1940 and one of the oldest and busiest air units in the Coast Guard.
The community of Pelican Pointe comprises three distinct sections: The Commons, The Village, and The Pointe.
Following Pelican Pointe Drive from the community’s entrance on Weeksville Road, visitors will pass a lovely pond before arriving at the entrance to The Commons, where gracious townhomes in pastel colors line the roadway, offering owners plenty of attractive green space for yards and patios.
Opposite The Commons is the entrance to The Village, where charming single-family homes with brick exteriors surround the Pelican Pointe Community Clubhouse, site of many of the community’s planned events. The Village is ringed by the community’s canal, which allows residents easy access to the Pasquotank River. For those community members without backyard docks or direct access to the water, a boat launch area provides the means by which they may take advantage of all the river has to offer.
Following Pelican Pointe Drive from The Village, visitors will enter The Pointe, a neighborhood of distinctive single-family homes built all the way down to the Pasquotank River, with several homes fronting the river itself. Properties on the left back up to the community’s canal, and many homeowners enjoy the benefits of backyard boat docks. Across the street, homeowners enjoy significant open space behind their homes. A children’s playground, tennis courts, and sports areas are located in The Pointe.
The community’s canal empties into the Pasquotank River at the Pointe itself, where boaters can travel upstream in a matter of minutes to enjoy a lunch or dinner at one of Elizabeth City’s downtown waterfront restaurants. Beyond the city center is the entrance to the Dismal Swamp Canal, part of the Intracoastal Waterway.
Boaters traveling in the opposite direction will enter Albemarle Sound, a large body of water from which to travel to a variety of places, including across to the Outer Banks, or to Manteo on Roanoke Island, another wonderful place to tie up and enjoy a lunch or dinner al fresco.
Despite its location in the heart of the most fertile farmland in northeastern North Carolina, Elizabeth City is home to the air station, a hospital, three colleges, the Museum of the Albemarle, a large shopping mall, and a number of fine restaurants. In addition, a restored opera house on the city’s main street is home to Arts of the Albemarle, a community arts organization that offers an art gallery, a resident theater company, performing arts space, and lessons in music and art for adults and children alike.
Pelican Pointe really does have something for everyone. It’s a place many are fortunate to call home.
