The Forks at Barclay, one of Wilmington's newest communities being built on 500 acres of unspoiled land, some believe to be the most desirable land in the area, is home to environmentally conscientious development. The Forks at Barclay began development in 2015, one hundred fifty years after the battle that is honored by its name. The Battle of Fork Road was a three-day battle in which the Union forces were victorious, paving the way for the taking of Wilmington in 1865, which precipitated the end of the long and arduous Civil War just three months later.
The Forks at Barclay is in the Pine Valley area, near Fairfield Park, and lies adjacent to the Cameron Art Museum and neighbors Halyburton Park, with 58 unspoiled acres, home of the Venus Flytrap and 1.3 miles of hike or bike trail. Access to the community is between George Anderson Drive and Museum Drive just off of 17th Street. The Forks at Barclay is home to ponds, bridges, and walkways that border Wilmington's westerly traversing 17th Street.
The neighborhood is under five minutes to New Hanover Regional Medical Center, under ten minutes to Wilmington's Historic Riverfront, less than 10 minutes to the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and a quick drive to Wrightsville Beach. The Forks at Barclay also sits at a primary access point for the Cross City Trail, connecting bike and walking enthusiasts to city parks and trails.
Built upon 46 acres, The Forks at Barclay, when complete, will be the address of 72 single-family detached homes and 52 townhomes. The square footage of the homes on site and planned vary from 1653 square feet to 2778 square feet. The townhomes existing and planned are a comfortable 1792 square feet to 2285 square feet. Each of the home options features granite countertops, stainless appliances, and sound systems as typical. They are affordable within the Wilmington market and offer a traditional architectural design with floor plans available in a variety of bedroom and bath configurations.
