Oleander Estates offers an enchanting mystique transporting you to a different time and place as you turn from Independence Boulevard onto Canterbury Road. Travelling along the wide Live Oak Parkway complete with marked running/walk lanes and bike lanes on either side under a canopy of majestic Oak trees, one feels the embodiment of classic southern charm.
Oleander Estates is positioned in the very heart of Wilmington. It is but a scant 3 miles to the Cape Fear Riverfront and Historic Downtown which beckons with an abundance of restaurants, eclectic shops and two major theater/entertainment venues in historical Thallian Hall and the new Cape Fear Humanities and Fine Arts Center. The neighborhood is so centrally located that the University of North Carolina Wilmington is also under three miles away and Independence Mall is closer than either of those destinations.
While the location is extremely important, so is the character of the neighborhood. Oleander Estates was built between 1956 and 1982 with a few homes dating back to the late 1920s. Virtually every home is enveloped by a large wooded lot abundant with mature landscaping and trees. The homes possess a distinctive "estate" feel not only in appearance but style and size; they range from about 2800 square feet to over 6000 in living space. Each Oleander Estates home was custom built and harbors its own uniqueness.
The community offers access to the Cross City Trail linking Halliburton, Empie, McCrary, and Wade Parks, is a favored neighborhood of members of the oldest private country club in NC, Cape Fear Country Club and has New Hanover Regional Medical Center within minutes.
Oleander Estates is over-flowing with charm in her meticulously maintained homes and streets. The neighborhood puts you in the mind of a bygone era of Southern gentile affluence while providing solid craftsmanship, value, and affordability in today's market. Oleander Estates has been and continues to be a treasure address in the center of Wilmington because of its stately appeal and its easy accessibility to all the Cape Fear Region offers.
