Parsely Woods is a well-established, secluded neighborhood nestled alongside Bradley Creek just off Wrightsville and Oleander Avenues with a walled border and a rich array of trees left intact when houses were originally built in the late eighties. Parsley Woods is exclusive, home to a mere 54 homesteads creating a bountiful sense of community.
Once folks choose Parsley Woods, they are none too anxious to give up the lavish landscapes or the serene byways a Parsley Woods' address affords. The neighborhood features large lots that with executive style homes in the midst of nature's domain. The home owners also maintain a beautiful clubhouse with a full kitchen and fireplace with views of the community pool and Bradley Creek. In addition to the clubhouse and pool, there are tennis courts and a dock for launching kayaks. The picturesque pier overlooking Bradley Creek's lively marshland is home to a restful gazebo, one that is registered as a premier location for films produced in North Carolina.
The Parsley Woods community has a desirable "green" feel in each homesite, the common areas and, especially, in the island medians of her streets with bright plantings and immaculate care to their upkeep. It is no accident that the revered and well-visited Airlie Gardens is but a hop, skip and jump away.
Parsley Woods is conveniently located to the beaches of Wrightsville Beach, which is only two miles away and is a very few minutes from the shopping enclave of Mayfaire or that of Lumina Station. Historic Downtown Wilmington and the Cape Fear Riverfront are about 15 minutes inland.
Those living in Parsley Woods have easy access to water sports and boating as well as golf, tennis, theatre and the many cultural experiences Wilmington attracts. Rowan LeCompte, a noted stain-glass artist with more than 40 windows in the National Cathedral, was a Parsley Wood resident during his tenure in Wilmington creating many stain-glass windows you will find in the local churches from his in-home studio.
Parsley Woods is home to a former University President, industry executives and a multitude of physicians and healthcare professionals. It shares the community experience with families, the actively retired and those transferring from other areas of the country.
