Just off of Airlie Road in between the Intracoastal Waterway and the fabulous Airlie Gardens, Airlie Forest is an address the truly discerning dream of having.

In Airlie Forest, neighbors get to know neighbors. The neighborhood is made up of all custom built homes, each with their own unique design and configuration. The architecture is mixed with traditional, craftsman, low country, and cottage styles all represented. The homes are relatively new, having been built between 2001 and 2008. All have their particular attributes and amenities, and all are energy efficient and ecologically friendly to the environment in which they stand.
Airlie Forest is conveniently located next to Wrightsville Beach, and is less than a mile to the Intracoastal Waterway and a very short walk to Bradley Creek. Although just a single street, it is a beautiful one with stately oaks meeting the mature landscapes of the homeowner yards.
If shopping, creative fine dining, entertainment, libraries or water sports are things you value, Airlie Forest is less than five minutes from Mayfaire Town Center, Lumina Station, The Forum, Landfall Shopping Center and the summer concert series hosted at Airlie Gardens and Mayfaire.
Historic Downtown Wilmington with her Riverwalk, entertainment venues, Historic Thallian Hall and the Wilson Center on the campus of Cape Fear Community College, are only about fifteen minutes inland. The campus of the University of North Carolina Wilmington is less than ten minutes away and famed Airlie Gardens is a short bike ride.
