Newport, NC



Cannonsgate has come alive in recent months, with the construction of new custom homes and multiple lots coming under contract. Located on Highway 24 in Newport, NC just 10 minutes from Emerald Isle, NC – this 525 lot community is the perfect balance between southern luxury and coastal living. The Cannonsgate community was developed as a Charleston like community – unlike any community on the North Carolina coast. Each home is designed with this Low Country appeal including a blend of brick and coastal exteriors, expansive covered porches, double covered piazzas, large columns and much more.

Over the years our company has built a strong reputation of a strong attention to detail and being there for our customers throughout all phases of the construction process. For those out of town clients, the Bluewater Builders team stays in close contact through pictures and e-mail throughout the construction process. Because of our longevity, Bluewater Builders has gleaned the very best subcontractors in the area.

The Architectural and design criteria established for the Cannonsgate Homeowners Association provides an overall framework and comprehensive set of standards and procedures for the development of the community. These Guidelines have been developed to provide direction for the planning, designing, constructing, landscaping, and modifying of all residences, buildings, and structures or improvements within the Cannonsgate community. The Guidelines set forth criteria for design, style, materials, colors and location of site improvements, landscaping, signage, lighting and other structures. In addition, the Guidelines establish a process for review of all proposed construction and modifications to residences, buildings, and structures to ensure that all home sites within Cannonsgate are developed with consistency and quality.

The Cannonsgate community was developed with the intent of creating a Charleston like community, representative of not only the homes within the Charleston Historic District of Charleston, South Carolina, but to include the architecture of what is known as Low-Country. The low-country style is seen in and around towns such as Georgetown, Beaufort, Camden, Cheraw and others. The Charleston Single with the side porch is the most distinctive Charleston styled home recognized by many. But Charleston architecture incorporated many other styles as it developed early-on into a Neoclassical city. The main styles of the city are Palladian (root of the Charleston “Double House”), Adamesque, Greek and Roman Revival, Italianate and Gothic. The design of homes in the city as well as public buildings required a significant knowledge of Architectural History. Characteristic of these homes is that the architects were consistent with the selected style and did not mix elements from one style to another.

Bluewater Builders was one of the original companies involved in the establishment and development of the Cannonsgate community. You can be assured that our team will provide you with unmatched service during the building process and the highest of quality home.
