Waterfront Real Estate

Everyone has a different idea of what a waterfront home looks like to them.  Some want to walk out the back door straight onto sandy beaches. Others prefer to dock their boat in the backyard for easy access to the water. Some dream to be inland, but enjoy overlooking the relaxing calmness of a lake.  The port city of Wilmington has waterfront opportunities for all types of water lovers.


If morning walks on the sand, afternoon swimming in the ocean, and diner overlooking the beach sound like the lifestyle you have always dreamed of, than an oceanfront home is the place for you.  With multiple beaches in eastern North Carolina, the options are endless. Whether you prefer a secluded community such as the private Figure Eight Island, the more lively island of Wrightsville Beach, or the mainland beaches of Carolina Beach there is a little something for everyone!


Watching the sunset over the water, quick boat rides to uninhabited islands, and fishing in your backyard are only some of the advantages of having a waterfront home along the intracoastal waterway.  Wrightsville Beach and Harbor Island both have homes along the entire perimeter offering water right out the back door. The Wrightsville intracoastal homes start in the $800,000’s. However, access to the intracoastal doesn’t stop when you leave the island.  There are neighborhoods in Wilmington with access to the intracoastal, as well as major amenities, such as Landfall.   Intracoastal Landfall homes start in the low millions, and range up to around five million.  

Life living on a lake can bring a certain calmness to a home.  It allows beautiful views, evening strolls by the water, and fishing at anytime.  Many neighborhoods in Wilmington and Leland offer lakeside living. Brunswick Forest waterfront homes start in the $400,000’s and there are also opportunities to buy a lot in the $100,000’s and build your dream home! The resort-style neighborhood, Compass Pointe, has countless waterfront homes with incredibly amenities.  Compass Pointe waterfront homes start in the low 400,000’s as well!
