Portofino Subdivision in Clayton

Portofino is a wonderful community in Clayton,North Carolina. It is a 400 acre property with as few as 200 home sites, quite remarkable in todays world of development. There are miles and miles of walking trails that wander through the different communities, through the woods and to the Neuse River. There is a magnificent salt water beach entry pool and an Italian styled Piazza and Clubhouse for the lucky residents who call Portofino home. The trails can be used for walking or mountain biking, horseback riding or golf cart driving. They are about six miles long and are a great escape as you wander down to the river where the plan is to have a Kayak launch site.Living in Portofino, Clayton, North Carolina
