Although most of the homes in Turtle Hall were built in the 1980s, the area’s rich history parallels the exploits of Captain Kidd including stories of his buried treasure on nearby Money Island. Located off of Greenville Loop Road, Turtle Hall extends to the Intracoastal Waterway and is close to Shinn Creek, Shinn Point and Wrightsville Beach. Since it is also near Oleander Drive and Eastwood Road, it is minutes from everything that’s anything including great restaurants, retail venues, banks, medical facilities and several supermarkets.
Stately brick columns and established plantings flank the entrance into Turtle Hall. Homes are situated on private, beautifully landscaped lots which are larger than average. It is a lovely place to walk thanks to winding wooded trails, shady lanes, a picturesque pond, marsh grass areas and of course the glistening waterway. Being able to enjoy both the mild climate of the Cape Fear region and Turtle Hall’s stunning natural setting are regarded by residents as priceless amenities!
Turtle Hall certainly boasts some of the most impressive properties in the greater Wilmington area. Traditional architectural styles are prevalent and include Colonial, Georgian, and low country. Of course, some are waterfront or marsh front and include boat slips. In terms of square footage and home prices, this is one of the area’s more exclusive areas-so residences are quite spacious and prices can go into the millions.
The neighborhood stretches from the entrance along Hawks Bill Drive through Turtle Hall Harbor and Marsh Bay Drive. The jewel in the crown is perhaps the section of homes that face the marsh and waterway. These are actually on a separate island, and accessible by a one-lane bridge. Adjacent to these luxury properties, you’ll find the community marina, at the end of Hawks Bill Drive.
