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.

Stunning Oceanfront Home For Sale - 18 E Asheville Street, Wrightsville Beach

How much southern charm can you possibly squeeze into one house? Visit this oceanfront stunner on Wrightsville Beach and you'll have the answer. And, it sits right next door to the iconic De Laurentiis mansion-bonus! Located at 18 E. Asheville Street, this custom-built luxury estate exemplifies the Carolina waterfront style.  


Built in 1983, this five bedroom, six and a half bath home is ahead of its time in form, function, and style. Whether you make this dream property a private coastal getaway or a shared family retreat, no one will be disappointed with craftsman-style details like wide porch pillars, porthole windows, interior columns, built-ins, marble-surround fireplace, and dramatic wood floors.


From the moment you enter the great room on the main level of this three-story, 3783 square foot beauty, you'll be blown away by the non-stop views of Wrightsville's famous white sandy beach and crystal blue water. The soft Carolina pallet of seafoam green and wide open floor plan immediately lightens your mood.


The chef's kitchen has an expansive granite covered island bar perfect for entertaining guests. After dinner, grab your coffee and move the conversation to the separate sitting room just adjacent to the enormous oceanfront deck and watch the sunset over the Atlantic.


Beautiful white crown moulding, wide door and window trim, and plantation blinds continue the craftsman detail throughout the home.


The remarkable penthouse master suite has even more details, including a tray ceiling, more portholes, never-ending windows, and French doors leading to a private balcony.


The luxurious en suite features a custom tiled walk-in shower, garden tub with tile surround, and a double vanity. You'll never want to leave the penthouse!


Three of the five guest quarters enjoy private baths as well.


The exterior won't disappoint either with its native plants and shrubs like palm trees and sea oats, and a boardwalk-inspired sidewalk, all of which can be enjoyed from the three levels of covered and uncovered decks and balconies. Oh, those decks! This is one amazing home, but you might just find yourself spending more time outside than in, on the decks watching the sun rise and set and watching the waves roll in and out.
