From coastal country estates to tidy townhomes, waterfront master-planned communities and family-friendly neighborhoods, the Masonboro area of Wilmington has it all! Located in the southern section of New Hanover County, the area was named after its early founders-a group of settlers with a large contingency of Masons. They established the first post office in the community where the current zip code is 28409.
For years, the area around the Masonboro Loop Road was considered “out in the country.” Given its vast acreage and close proximity to the Intracoastal Waterway and Masonboro Island, via Masonboro Sound, its residents were primarily farmers, fishermen and boat builders. Then and now, lush stands of trees and native shrubs provide a beautiful natural backdrop. No wonder Masonboro is regarded as one of the Port City’s most desirable residential destinations! Along with being convenient to Wrightsville Beach, Carolina Beach, midtown and Wilmington’s historic downtown, Masonboro also boasts some of the loveliest subdivisions around. Many of them are filled with amenities, minutes from upscale shopping and dining, and have some of the most desirable features of all: water views and access. How does your own private boat slip sound?
There is a wonderful variety of listings to choose from when it comes to single-family homes and investment properties. Some of the most popular neighborhoods are: Masonboro Sound, Crosswinds, Masonboro Forest, Sentry Oaks and Lansdowne.
