When Oleander Drive gives way to Hwy 74/76, heading northeast in New Hanover County, drivers get a little boost when crossing the Bradley Creek Bridge. Sweeping views of salt marsh, glistening water and busy folks out fishing, boating, paddling or sailing, are a refreshing sight. The residential area is also known as Bradley Creek and it’s a beauty. Living in this part of town means that Wrightsville Beach, UNC-Wilmington and Mayfaire Town Center are mere minutes away!
Many of this community’s residents live along the tidal creeks of the Intracoastal Waterway. Easy access to boating, the beach, plus spectacular views, are just a few perks that Bradley Creek residents enjoy. The area’s namesake is Richard Bradley, who in 1808 bought 65 acres of creek land from his brother-in-law, prominent Wilmington landowner, Joshua Grainger Wright. Bradley would be utterly amazed to see the place today, and undoubtedly proud that a few of the stately antebellum and Colonial homes from his day have been lovingly maintained.
As for real estate, the sky is the limit in Bradley Creek. From waterfront townhomes at Bradley Creek Marina to luxury estates on the ICW, or custom built single-family homes, the gang’s all here. There are also charming older homes and even a few historic properties. Exploring Bradley Creek is a treat in itself because of all of the stunning landscaping. This is a frequent stop during the annual Azalea Festival Garden Tour and no wonder-there are definitely more than a few resident Master Gardeners here! There is no thru traffic and lots of cul-de-sacs, which make it a highly walkable neighborhood.
