Covil Estates Real Estate

Covil Estates

Wilmington living at its finest can be found inside the Covil Estates, which is comprised of several small neighborhoods. Everything one needs is located within the neighborhoods or is a very short drive away.

The main entrance to Covil Estates is from Military Cutoff but the neighborhoods are also accessible from
Market via Middle Sound Loop to Red Cedar Road. Technically, the estates are made up of six different neighborhoods, but there are three other neighborhoods that are accessible on the back side of the estates.

This neighborhood is attractively lain out and is attractively landscaped. It also has such amenities
as a clubhouse that sports a porte cochere, swimming pool, tennis courts. walking trails and a playground.

The main road in Covil-Wessex is Fisherman Creek Drive. It connects residents via a sidewalk to the tennis
courts and clubhouse. Many of the homes here are waterfront properties with many sporting private docks.
The neighborhood is, in fact, located on Howe Creek. What could be better at the end of the day than sitting
on the back porch or on the deck sitting and looking out over the marsh?

In Covil Crossing, the homes average at about $400,000. This neighborhood is comprised of 60 homes. The houses in Crossing are, for the most part, built with exteriors of brick or stone veneer. These lovely
homes are what are known as garden or patio homes. Having been established in 2006, as one drives around Covil Crossing, it is obvious as very few mature trees are seen. It does, however, give the streets the appearance of being wider and more open.

Entering Covil Estates on Covil Farm Road, Key Colony is on the right located on Key Pointe Drive. The neighborhood of patio homes is arranged in a series of cul-de-sacs which makesnavigating the streets and locating homes easy. This neighborhood established in 1993 boasts mature and majestic pine trees throughout. There are two other things, of note, that make this Key Colony unique. First, all of the driveways are made of orange rock aggregate. Secondly, the mail boxes in the neighborhood all sport the same style. Yes, a clue of how tight-knit this neighborhood is.

Peppertree is another older neighborhood being established in 1996. It, too, is a smaller neighborhood with
smaller homes and yards, though both are very well maintained and landscaped. The exteriors are made of
shake siding.

The second neighborhood one will find upon entering Covil Estates is Snug Harbour located on the left
side of Covil Farm Road and just across from the clubhouse. All of the homes in Snug Harbor are brick and are surrounded by mature trees since the first homes were built in 1993 and have had time to establish themselves. Driving through the neighborhood, one will soon notice that the side streets off the main road, Snug Harbour Court, end in cul-de-sacs. This, and speed bumps, ensure that traffic flows slowly and quietly through the streets. Since Snug Harbour is literally across the street from the pool and the tennis courts, it is a short walk or bike ride to enjoy those amenities. Or to just get out and spend time with neighbors.

Though not, technically, part of Covil Estates, entering the estates through the backdoor brings one right
through Gorman Plantatiion. The Plantation was established in 1998 and, since the streets and yards are filled with mature trees, its easy to see it predated some of the other neighborhoods. This adds to the appeal as it also adds a welcoming feel.

One will note that the central road, Red Cedar, is lined with marked bike paths, too. Another sign that this
neighborhood is family and exercise friendly.

Timber Creek is ideally situated on the banks of Howe Creek. Taking advantage of that, many homes in
Timber Creek have their own docks. That is quite suitable for a neighborhood that has a guard hut at its entrance. The neighborhood has the feel of being located deep in the woods. It is filled with mature trees which not only provide shade during the summer but damper noise from outside the neighborhood as well. The mature trees are also indicative of this neighborhood being established in 1991.

Any home in any of the subdivisions are mere minutes from shopping, dining, sports activities, historic
downtown Wilmington and area beaches. All major highways are just a short drive away, too. For families
with children, all schools are conveniently located.

When added together, one can find a home to fit any budget. And yet, there is not an obvious visible
barrier in any of the subdivisions based on cost or size of houses. Each community is truly a close-knit
group of neighbors and friends.

Since these neighborhoods are highly desirable, now is the time to start looking for that new home you
have been thinking and dreaming about. Do it today! Contact us now.
