The Portofino community has been called a “dream come true” by many of our residents. This gated community exudes southern charm and abounds in rich historical character, situated on land once owned by the prominent and legendary Flowers’ family of southern lore.
Portofino has been carefully planned to preserve and protect the natural beauty of the land. Whether you are enjoying the views along the Neuse River, hiking the miles of trails, or simply sitting by the pool, you will see the results of this careful planning. We are proud to be members of the Audobon International Signature Program, a program designed to help developers use the land in a sustainable, environmentally friendly way. We are a community that is planning for the future by protecting the precious resources around us.
The homes in Portofino are built by a carefully selected team of local builders, who offer a unique mix of homestyles and price ranges. Homeowners in Portofino enjoy an abundant selection of amenities including an impressive Residents’ Center and Clubhouse, a beach-entry swimming pool (with 4000 sq. ft. of pool decking and a pool house), over seven miles of walking trails with bridges and elevated walkways, access to the Neuse River and our exquisitely designed Equestrian Center.
Extensive care and thoughtful planning make Portofino an exquisite luxury place to live. All these elements and amenities combined make Portofino less like a place to live and more like a superb executive lifestyle where memories are waiting to happen. With open space, elbow room, community, friendship, neighbors, quality of life – Portofino truly is a perfect place to call home.
