Carolina Place Real Estate

Carolina Place

There are many reasons to love living in Wilmington and, for many, that means live in areas where history lives, such as Carolina Place. Located off of Market Street between 12th and 17th Streets, this neighborhood is listed in the National District Historic Register.

The houses have been well-maintained and the landscaping, though mature, has been cared for with love.

Historic downtown and all it has to offer are within shopping distance as are New Hanover High School, Port City Java and a brand new neighborhood grocery store, Carolina Farming.

The houses in the neighborhood are diverse. They range in size from 800 square feet up to 5,400 square feet. This neighborhood was established in 1906 and is a much sought after area. The average price for recent sales in this neighborhood is $150,000.

Though the neighborhood is older, the residents are a mix of all ages and they are active. It is not unusual to go for a walk and end up stopping to talk with neighbors. Take the family and/or dogs to walk to nearby in Wallace Park.

Never fear; in Wilmington, one is never far from the water. The Cape Fear River can be  reached via foot, bike or car. The area beaches, Wrightsville, Carolina and Kure, are a bit farther. Wrightsville is about a 15 minute drive while Carolina and Kure would take about 30 from downtown to reach.

Cape Fear Community College and UNC-Wilmington are about equi-distance from Carolina Place. And with the history of downtown so close, as are the beaches and shopping and dining, this is a perfect area for young families.
