Take a look at Castle Hayne homes if you’re interested in living in a quiet spot just outside of Wilmington. This bedroom community has an interesting history that actually includes a real castle. Unfortunately this plantation residence of Captain Roger Haynes burnt down, but the names lives on. Eventually Dutch immigrants came to this area and began to raise daffodils and gladioli. Residents enjoy adorning their Castle Hayne homes with flowers from the many talented florists in the area.
