Brakewood is a popular community located at the northern end of Roanoke Island. It's made up of predominantly upscale homes with the biggest bonus being that most if not all homes are located in the sought after X flood zone. As an aside, an X flood zone means that flood insurance is not required by your lender. While there are no common amenities to the subdivision, there is a strong sense of community, and the large lot sizes are a draw for those looking for some separation from their neighbors. The abundance of large pines and welcoming front porches gives it a Southern Charm adding to the ambiance of the neighborhood. See all the homes for sale in Brakewood listed below.
