Gated community near Pinehurst to add dozens of new homes

Dozens of new homes are planned next to a popular country club on the edge of Pinehurst as Moore County’s population continues to surge.

Pinewild Project Limited Partnership, a group tied to Pinewild Country Club Manager Chris Little, is planning 78 single-family homes on roughly 88 acres adjacent to the eastern edge of one of the club’s courses, according to an application submitted to the Village of Pinehurst Planning and Zoning Board.

The land sits east of Edinburgh Lane between Stoneykirk Drive and Pinewild Drive. Pinewild Project Limited Partnership owns the land, which has an assessed value of more than $1 million, according to Moore County tax records.

The lot sizes for the homes will range from more than half an acre to more than an acre, according to the plans. Details about home design and features, estimated price ranges, and construction deadlines are unclear as Little did not respond to a request seeking comment.

Home values for properties along Edinburgh Lane range from $500,000 to above $1 million.

The proposed homes will sit in the existing gated community of Pinewild, which already has around 920 residences and 22 miles of paved street located on more than 1,800 acres of land, according to the community’s website. The community first came online in 1986.

Pinewild Country Club of Pinehurst has two golf courses – the Magnolia Course designed by Gene Hamm and the Holly Course designed by Gary Player – as well as a clubhouse, tennis and pickleball courts, a swimming pool, and more.

The Village of Pinehurst and Moore County continue to attract new residents, including a younger demographic as the area sheds its label of being known solely as a retirement destination. The village’s population rose by 4.8 percent from 17,574 in 2020 to 18,416 in 2022, according to estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau. And Moore County’s population has surged above 100,000 in recent years.
