Masonboro Sound Road and Bohicket Way provide access the little-known alcove community of Dawning Creek. This smaller community is comprised of just two modest cul-de-sacs branching from Dawning Creek Way beautifully designed to form a landscaped center where roundabouts meet. Dawning Creek sits in between two other neighborhoods and is connected to Whispering Pines and just removed from Maxwell Place.
Dawning Creek is a quiet community entirely composed of single-family homes on relatively spacious lots measuring ¼ to ½ acre in size with mature trees and space for a family to grow or the professional to spread their wings. The neighborhood includes a pond which borders a few of the homes and opens to the left of the entrance. One of the biggest draws to many people in the community are the local schools, Parsley Elementary, Roland Grise Middle, and Hoggard High School (subject to change).
Most homes in Dawning Creek are one or two stories with attached garages, typically ranging from 1,600 sq/ft to just over 2,000 sq/ft. The community is fully developed within the Wilmington city limits with street lighting and is one of the safest neighborhoods in the Greater Wilmington area. The exteriors of the homes are either brick-veneer or maintenance friendly horizontal siding.
Dawning Creek is less than ten minutes from Historic Wilmington's Downtown Riverfront with her eclectic and award-winning restaurants, events, and attractions. Is under ten minutes from the pristine shores of Wrightsville Beach and the shopping meccas of Mayfaire, Lumina Station, and Porter's Neck. If commuting to the University of North Carolina Wilmington is a part of your routine, the campus lies just four miles away.
Masonboro Sound is just a hop, skip, and a jump from Dawning Creek as is the Historical District of Masonboro Sound celebrating the architectural integrity of the Cape Fear Region including notable examples of Colonial Revival and Italian Renaissance. Hugh Macrae Park is a bikeable 3.4 miles away with an off-leash dog park, garden area with a pond and gazebo, playground, baseball fields, basketball courts, lighted tennis courts, a sand volleyball court, and a walking trail.
Dawning Creek offers convenient accessibility to all that Wilmington offers coupled with affordability, safety, and a tranquil, community oriented place to call home.
