Greater Wilmington Waterfront Homes

Considering that Wilmington is frequently referred to as the city that spans from “the river to the sea”, it should come as no surprise that there are quite a few communities centered around water. From the majestic banks of the Cape Fear River to the sparkling Intracoastal Waterway, salt marsh creeks and picturesque sounds to the mighty Atlantic, there are plenty of options for homebuyers seeking the unique lifestyle that only a waterfront location provides.

Properties with water access provide an amazing array of built-in amenities. In addition to the sheer natural beauty, having the ability to go beach combing, bird watching, boating, fishing, paddling, swimming, or surfing at a moment’s notice is simply priceless! Many of the area’s waterfront communities also have other offerings, such as fitness centers, golf courses, swimming pools, tennis facilities, biking and walking trails.

In deciding which waterfront area would be best for you, consider your list of must-haves:

  • Spectacular view
  • Boat dock
  • Peace, quiet and nature
  • Biking and walking trails
  • Beach access and proximity to fishing piers, beach strands or surf breaks
  • Water rights for boating, fishing and paddling
  • Gated community
  • Upscale amenities including golf, tennis, swim club
  • Convenient to cultural venues, shopping, dining, goods and services such as banks, medical facilities and supermarkets

After evaluating your list, you should next have an idea as to where you’d be happiest.

Could it be in a stately historic home overlooking the northeast Cape Fear River, an upscale beach house, condo or a cozy cottage tucked away on a salt-water creek or pristine sound? Perhaps one of the newer master-planned communities or a place on the waterway would be a better fit?
