Timeless and delightful are two words that easily describe the charming neighborhood of Marywood in the Bradley Creek area. Situated mere minutes from the Intracoastal Waterway, just off of Greenville Loop Road along the eastern edge of the county, this little gem is one of the area’s best-kept secrets.
Most of the homes in Marywood were built in the 1980s, however, many could pass for historic Colonial properties. Large, lush lots are thick with stands of hardwoods, dogwood, pine and native shrubs. A drive through Marywood, especially in the springtime, gives visitors a clue as to why several homes here have been regularly featured on the Azalea Festival garden tour!
House hunters will be pleased to learn that there is a nice range of home sizes and prices points throughout Marywood. Many smaller residences average just over 2500 square feet, with larger homes sprawling over 5,000, with prices often ranging from the mid $300s to over $700,00. Regardless of the size or exact architectural style, one thing is certain, these sought after properties have been lovingly maintained and boast impressive upgrades and stylish updates. Energy saving components, top of the line appliances, stunning interiors and all of today’s must-haves from granite to hardwood, open floor plans and private outdoor spaces are par for the course in lovely Marywood.
Another plus is that Marywood is connected to several neighboring developments, which makes it extremely walkable. It is also a quick drive to Wrightsville Beach, the campus of UNC-Wilmington, Mayfaire Town Center, and just over 10 miles from historic downtown. Residents here enjoy the convenience of nearby goods and services that include several supermarkets, bank branches, medical facilities, excellent schools and plenty of great shopping and dining options.
