Along the banks of the Cape Fear River, just south of historic downtown Wilmington, lies the vibrant community of Riverlights.  New Leaf Builders is proud to be a part of this exciting waterfront community, bringing our signature Charleston-style designs into North Carolina.

Starting construction the fall of 2021, New Leaf is proud to offer 8 initial plans ranging from 1,500 up to 2,400 square feet, that have been custom designed to fit within the appealing streetscape of Riverlights while embracing all the comforts and wants that you desire today in your home. Our floor plans focus on the outdoors, featuring ample natural light and open and peaceful rooms for relaxing in, yet complete with all of the high style and high quality fit and finish that New Leaf is known for. Register today to be among the first to our VIP event and unveiling of these fabulous homes.
