Myrtle Grove Homes

Myrtle Grove is one of Wilmington’s oldest and most historic communities. In days gone by, its close proximity to the Intracoastal Waterway established it as a hub of activity for seafarers, fishermen, and boat builders. Situated along the southeastern edge of New Hanover County, today Myrtle Grove has become a mecca for those in search of a tranquil, coastal lifestyle. It is hard to imagine that even before the Revolutionary War, summer cottages were scattered along the banks of the waterway, area tidal creeks and sounds. Places such as Live Oaks and Cedar Grove were very popular destinations for prominent Wilmington residents and visitors. Nearby, Sea Breeze was a well-known vacation destination for the black community. From the 1700s through the turn of the century, they all came here for its picturesque beauty; to escape the heat, enjoy the fresh sea air and splash in the salt water.

The Myrtle Grove area was once what Wilmington residents considered the countryside. From the turn of the century until only recently, Myrtle Grove was filled with small family farms and modest homes. Tom Simmons was one of a handful of well-respected boat builders who called Myrtle Grove home. He was the designer of a local icon: the Simmons Sea Skiff.

Today the neighborhoods throughout Myrtle Grove have become extremely popular. From lovingly maintained older homes to newer subdivision along gorgeous Hewlett’s Creek or impressive new construction in amenity-filled neighborhoods like TidalWalk or Georgetown, you can’t go wrong with a Myrtle Grove property! Even better, you’re just minutes from shopping, dining, and entertainment venues, schools, grocery stores, banks, and medical facilities. Another perk to living in the community of Myrtle Grove is that it’s convenient to downtown Wilmington, Wrightsville Beach, Masonboro Island, and Carolina Beach!
