2. BEST INTERIOR DESIGN - The Willow at Compass Pointe, Legacy Homes
This Willow capitalizes on a contemporary coastal home style with a take on current and classic features. Our team designed this home based on its location; it sits right along the Compass Pointe Golf Course, overlooking hole two. The design team incorporated structural elements that would serve the golf lifestyle. This includes the outdoor living spaces: a rear screened-in porch leading to a patio and the second-level rear covered porch off a flex room with a wet bar. The home is created to capture the views and sounds of the golf course. Every piece of furniture and décor was selected and installed by our in-house interior designer and staging specialist, Courtney Salyer. She used a coastal palette with a neutral backdrop that borrows colors from the sand, surf, and shells. The nautical décor is crafted from natural fibers and organic materials. Wicker, rattan, and natural wood accents are used throughout, all while keeping the entire space light and breezy. Click here to see the Willow, or HERE to learn about Compass Pointe.
3. BEST SALES MODEL - The Ashton at The Retreat at Ocean Isle Beach, Bill Clark Homes
The Ashton is our model home in the Retreat at Ocean Isle Beach and was designed with the community and coastal area in mind. Located just one mile away from the sandy beaches of Ocean Isle, living at The Retreat is like taking a permanent vacation. Our Design Team wanted to create a model that spoke to buyers interested in the southeastern coastal lifestyle. They filled this model home with trending selections that appeal to all customers. The interior color palette includes bright whites, neutrals, and hints of blue (as seen in the kitchen backsplash and fireplace tile). Our Staging Specialist also capitalized on creating the coastal lifestyle feel in this home. She furnished and decorated the model with classic coastal pieces and incorporated multiple touches of blue to pull out the interior selections. Our designers also included various selections, from high-end upgrades to standard features. This allows clients to visualize what they can have in their homes, regardless of their budget. The Ashton Model is open daily from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm for walk-ins and appointments! Click here to see The Ashton or HERE to learn about The Retreat.
4. BEST WEBSITE - Bill Clark Homes & Legacy Homes by Bill Clark

5. BEST OUTDOOR ADVERTISING - The Sanctuary at Sunset Beach, Bill Clark Homes
The outdoor signage and merchandising at The Sanctuary directly replicate the brand and aesthetic we created around this community. We developed a community with an elevated and relaxing coastal atmosphere, this is reflected in the merchandising, signage, and monuments. Located only minutes from Sunset Beach, The Sanctuary is the epitome of coastal living. Amenities within the community include a resort-style pool, coastal clubhouse, cabanas, outdoor fireplace pavilion, grilling stations, swing beds, golf cart parking, a fitness center, and miles of sidewalks & walking paths. The Sanctuary is built to enjoy the laid-back coastal lifestyle that Sunset Beach is known for. The creation of the Sanctuary logo and brand design came from the area itself; Sunset beach is home to a bird sanctuary, and that's how we came up with the community name. We use bird imagery as the central motif throughout the community. This includes the entryway monument walls, the clubhouse's exterior center gable, the fireplace pavilion's tabby mantle, and the 10-foot crane waterfall sculptures in the entryway water fountain. We are currently offering both pre-designed homes and available homesites (choose your lot, then design & build your home), all available now. Click here to learn more about The Sanctuary.
