Wharf Landing Marina
Grand Opening

It was advertised as free music, food and drink. And was it ever. Wharf Landing puts on a good party. They have also developed a great Marina, the Chowan River's first new full service marina in quite a while, and a super Condo Complex. Wharf Landing offers the only waterfront condos in this historic area. Because it was overcast this night we did not get to enjoy the typical evening's spectacular sunset, but it was still a great view of Albemarle Sound.

When we arrived we found a temporary restaurant in a tent (shown at top) where the permanent restaurant is going to go, with food provided this evening by Nixon's catering. The small marina area shown above is where you can bring your boat to the restaurant to dine. An architects rendering of the restaurant to be built is shown below.

Almost everyone was grabbing a bite to eat before they headed out for the tour of the condo complex. The food, as noted above, was provided by Nixon's and it was their usual outstanding fare.

The music was provided by the Dreams, and it was superb.

As we walked over to the model set up in the condo complex, Stephani Powell and Nancy Adams, below, stopped to enjoy the great breeze blowing off Albemarle Sound.

We took advantage of the really special riverfront walk that runs along the entire complex as we walked over. The view makes it worth the couple of extra steps it took to get to the model by using the riverfront walk.

The model condo is on the first floor of one of the units that fronts the marina, shown below, already populated with a few of the boats that will soon fill it.

As you enter the model condo from the elevator, you walk into the spacious living room.

Below is the kitchen and dining area, looking out to the sunrise side sun room.

Below is the sunset side sun room, here configured as a reading area but which could also be set up as a breakfast nook if you wanted.

The Master Bedroom is beautiful, and opens out onto the huge balcony.

Stepping out on the balcony, you get a view of the large marina area. Shown at the rear of the marina is the start of the next set of buildings in the complex. This expansion is the reason for the great party that the developer was throwing this night.

After an enjoyable meal, typical of the lifestyle that this complex will provide, and a great tour of the condo complex itself, we walked back to the car and headed out.

Wharf Landing is a great addition to our area. Click on the title above or here to go to the Wharf Landing Web Site for more pictures and contact information for the facility.
