I used to live at 5527 Sandpiper Dr. My house was built to about 9’ but flooded in Irene. Lived there 4 more years but sold it and then Florence flooded it again.

I think the current building code now requires 11’, but I would build a couple of feet higher.

Other than elevation, Dolphin Point is a nice community. Oriental is certainly isolated, but I can live with that. My wife couldn’t.

Someone said Oriental has no sense of community. Pure BS. Read Towndock.net and spend a few mornings at The Bean. You will then understand.
