Finding Your Wrightsville Beach Life

When it comes to living at Wrightsville Beach, it may seem like it we only have a few year-round residents or only vacationers but the truth is we have something for everyone looking for a bit of that #WrightsvilleBeachLife.

The Part-Timer
If living year-round at the beach isn’t for your life or budget, consider being a “part-time” owner. What I mean by that is, consider fractional ownership. Properties like 1 Sea Oats Lane have multiple owners and your time spent at the property is based on your ownership level. In the case of 1 Sea Oats Lane, this owner is selling their 1/10 ownership which translates into 5 weeks out of the year. When available, you can always purchase more shares of ownership.

The Relaxer
Love the idea of living at the beach and spending every free moment taking full advantage of your location? Then maybe the maintenance-free lifestyle is more your speed. Condos are perfect for the owner who doesn’t want to spend every week on a lawn or fixing the gutters. Communities like Duneridge Resort take all the hassle out of upkeep with onsite maintenance while keeping you oceanfront for early morning surfing, yoga on the beach or simple wave watching.

The Boater
If boating, not the beach, brings you to Wrightsville Beach every time, then communities like Channel Walk and Cordgrass Bay are right up your alley! These communities feature community docks and slips so you never again have to be without your boat while still being close enough to beach access and local attractions.

The Investor
If your idea of the #WrightsvilleBeachLife leans more toward the investment owner, then units at condotels like Shell Island Resort are perfect for you. Condotels are a combination of hotel and condominium complex rolled into one lovely package. Purchase a condo, sit back and relax. The property management company will handle the rest. Even better, you can try it before you buy it. Stay at a condotel prior to buying to make sure you like the management style and company. Of course you can always purchase an investment property elsewhere, but these units are ready-made for max rental potential.

The Builder
While there are not a ton of buildable lots currently for sale on our little slice of paradise, they do come on the market. Land lots are perfect for building your dream home from scratch- just make sure you speak with all the proper people about your plans prior to purchasing.

The Year-Rounder
You know who you- you are the person who wants to live at the beach year-round. If that sounds like you but you worry that life slows down too much in the winter, don’t fret! We have so many events that take place year-round as well as plenty of people who live here every day that you will never feel like you are in a deserted beach town, even in the winter. Whether you are more of the condo lover or a 3-story luxury home, we have plenty of properties for sale to choose from.

Bottom line, no matter who you are or how you prefer to live that #WrightsvilleBeachLife, we have something for everyone on this island we call home.

So, what is your favorite part of #WrightsvilleBeachLife?

Fireplace Magic

There is something magical about the fireplace during the colder months. Whether you are decorating the mantel for the holidays, cozying up under a blanket while watching the flames dance, or simply waiting for Santa to come down the chimney, no one can deny they add a special something to the home.  

Fireplaces are pretty versatile as well. In the warmer months (which are most of the year in Wrightsville Beach!), you can easily replace logs with a few candles or a string of lights to create that beautiful glow without the heat. For easy lighting, wax-dipped pinecones make great kindling and if the wax just happens to be scented, the pinecones will add a pleasant scent in addition to your wood logs(Have an electric or gas fireplace? Save the wax pinecones for the outdoor (wood-burning) fire pit.) 

Not sure how to maintain your fireplace or just need some tips? Check out The Fireside Blog by Napoleon. They have a ton of helpful information.

Just because we live at the beach that doesn’t mean we can’t appreciate and desire a fireplace of our own! Here are a few homes and condos currently listed for sale that feature at least one fireplace. Click the address for more information.

The Annual 2016 Wrightsville Beach Holiday Decorating Contest

Every year when the holidays hit, I find myself driving around to look at all the beautifully twinkling lights while sipping an eggnog latte. I have been to Enchanted Airlie more times than I care to admit and every Christmas as a kid involved at least one visit to the “World’s Largest Living Christmas Tree” (although I have no clue if it actually was the largest in the world or just the largest in Wilmington). Somehow despite a local who loves all things holiday light related, I missed the fact that Wrightsville Beach is home to a holiday decorating contest each year.

Sponsored by the Harbor Island Garden Club, Wrightsville Beach Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee, and Wrightsville Beach Parks and Recreation Department, the annual Wrightsville Beach Holiday Decorating Contest is open to any Wrightsville Beach resident or business that enters. Prizes are awarded for Most Creative, Most Traditional, Best Holiday Lighting, Most Holiday Spirit, Best Overall Residence and Best Over Overall Business.

While the deadline to enter is noon on Tuesday, December 13 2016 with judging taking place that evening beginning at 5:30 pm, don’t wait until the last minute to start planning your decorations! If you are feeling a bit stumped, visit our “Christmas on the Coast” Pinterest board for holiday decorating ideas inside your home and out.

To enter your home or business, call the Parks and Recreation office at 910-256-7925.

8013 Bald Eagle Lane - New Waterfront Listing in Wilmington

If living the boating life on the Intracoastal Waterway is your idea of happiness, then you'll find this beautifully situated, secluded residence on the southern tip of Bald Eagle Lane a blissful slice of heaven. Oh, and if golf factors into that happiness plan, Eagle Point Golf Club is just around the corner.

Built in 2007, this meticulously maintained home is just one of six houses that make up the private waterfront Eagle Point community. Without a doubt, one of the most amazing features of this first-class residence is the well thought-out placement of the windows for dramatic natural light effects and waterway views abound.

The stylish interior includes hardwood flooring and designer touches throughout. From the moment you drive up to this cul-de-sac home with its lovely palm trees, contemporary double-garage doors, covered porch, and walk through the doors at 8013 Bald Eagle Lane, you'll never want to leave.  

This spacious, 2,609 square foot two-story custom-built home features an open living area floorplan with a wall of sliding glass doors and windows that overlook the sound. Walk out onto the sprawling deck that runs from one end of the house to the other for unmatched sunset views over the Intracoastal Waterway.

The large living and dining area creates the perfect opportunity to relax, visit with family and friends, and cook all at the same time. And a cozy fireplace surrounded by custom built-ins anchors the room.

Neutral colors abound throughout for easy decorating and that scheme extends to the bedrooms. Wide, crisp white floor moulding and window trim adds style and character to each of the 4 bedrooms. Additional niceties include a separate craft or hobby room, ample storage, a workshop, and a propane generator.

Undeniably, it's the outdoor environment of this residence that will still (and steal) your heart with dramatic vistas that are alive with color and native wildlife throughout every season. Prop your feet on the deck railing and lean back in a rocking chair with a good book, an evening cocktail, or a cup of coffee and enjoy the breathtaking water views and the solitude while you're tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Wilmington.

And don't forget about the community pier and deep water boat slip on the ICW. The slip arrangement for this residence allows for two vessels, and is equipped with a hydraulic lift.

Residents looking for a coastal lifestyle that's away from the crowded beaches won't be disappointed with this one-of-a-kind gem of a residence in a small, private community.
