Shore Acres Real Estate

Shore Acres

One thing that is a given about the Wilmington, NC area is that living on or near the water is a given. And the possibility of living on an island is, too.

On such neighborhood is located on a small island tucked safely between Wrightsville Beach and the Wilmington mainland. The island is called Harbor Island and the community is Shore Acres.

Perhaps not one of the best known neighborhoods, it is a true gem that has been around since 1950-ish.

As one would expect with island living, many of the homes in Shore Acres are beach cottages but just as many are more traditional homes, too. Also to be expected are numerous waterfront properties.

This tight knit community is a perfect place to raise your family. Walking and biking on the island is practically mandatory. It’s also a great way to spend family time, visit with neighbors or to stay in shape.

With all the pluses that come with beach living, one of the hardships is dealing with summer traffic. That is true of Shore Acres living, too. However, it is worth it!

In addition to living on an island, the Atlantic Ocean is your front yard. All the pleasures that come with that are yours: playing in the sand or building castles, flying kites, frolicking in the surf, tossing a Frisbee, a game of beach volleyball, sunbathing and more.

The watersports are unending: paddle boarding, surfing, kayaking, wind surfing, swimming, fishing, boating, and deep sea fishing.

Speaking of fishing, the island is populated with restaurants that offer the freshest seafood around. Just across the drawbridge to the mainland are more. From this island paradise, no place in the Wilmington area is farther than 10-15 minutes from your front door. That includes Historic Downtown, UNC-Wilmington, Cape Fear Community College, all routes into and out of Wilmington, Paradise Island, Thalian Hall, city and county parks, waterways, unlimited shopping, and dining and entertainment options for everyone.
