Thistle Downs

Sunset Beach, NC

Thistle Downs is minutes away from Ocean Isle, Sunset Beach, and the town of Calabash.  The Thistle Downs community takes its name from the legendary Thistle Golf Club of Scotland.  This unique community references the richness of Scottish architectural tradition.  Its residents enjoy the many amenities it offers while having the privacy afforded by its 400 acres of carefully arranged properties.

Thistle Downs offers a 27-hole, links-style golf course designed by Tim Cate.  Its clubhouse features a grand foyer, plenty of social areas to gather with friends or family, and a Scottish-style pub.  The clubhouse pro shop is the perfect place to shop or try out the latest golf gear.  The community amenity center provides residents a covered lanai with outdoor kitchen and bar, a lap pool, and a state-of-the-art gym.  Did we mention the 60-acre lake system? If the sparkling lakes and waterways of Thistle were not enough, the most pristine beaches of North Carolina are just minutes away!

Whether your style is gracious estate residences with unobstructed views or charming cottages and casual living, Thistle Downs offers Diamond Award-winning custom-designed homes.  The timeless architecture of this low density community gives residents room to breathe.  We would love to introduce you to the community of Thistle.
