Luxurious Living Meets Southern Relaxation

Nestled into rolling countryside along the banks of the Neuse River, the homes of the Portofino community are an undeniably luxurious experience. Designed and built by carefully-selected local builders, these homes offer nothing short of absolute elegance. Portofino itself was carefully-planned to preserve the natural beauty and rolling country of Clayton, allowing every home a spacious yard, beautiful rural landscapes, and access to endless outdoor opportunities along the nearby Neuse River.

A Horse-Lover’s Community Filled with Amenities

Perhaps the biggest draw of Portofino is its 22-stall barn nicknamed “The Ritz for Horses”, but it is far from the only amenity found within the community. Several riding rings, world-class trainers, a cross-country course, acres of open countryside, over 20 pastures, and miles of wooded nature trails have helped establish Portofino as one of the premiere equestrian communities in the state. Additionally, residents enjoy access to a private fishing pond, a pool, and The Piazza resident clubhouse.
