Edgewater | Wilmington NC Neighborhoods

Welcome to the Neighborhood: Edgewater

Homes for Sale in Wilmington, NC


Edgewater is a cozy, secluded neighborhood located right by Motts Channel and Bradley Creek, down scenic Airlie road. The neighborhood sits less than 10 minutes from the bridge that crosses into Wrightsville beach and is located within walking distance to several excellent restaurants, such as Dockside, The Bridge Tender and Fish House, all sitting right on the water. Tucked behind lush trees draped with spanish moss, Edgewater Lane comprises the sole road in the neighborhood. Residents have the unique perk of having access to their own community dock with boat slips, making for an especially pleasing spot to call home.

Home Types

Being fully­developed, there aren’t lots available for the construction of new homes, however Edgewater has the exclusive advantage of having been populated with all custom homes — so no two houses are alike. Houses vary in their design, giving potential new residents plenty of options to choose from when considering homes for sale in Edgewater, whether they’re looking for a stucco home or a brick one, with one story or three. Most houses have their own garages and are considered single­family homes, though others could easily accommodate more. And, unlike some newer subdivisions, neighbors have plenty of elbow room due to a spacious layout of the houses, so each home feels private.


Being part of New Hanover County, parents can rest assured that their children will be attending some of the finest schools in the area. K­12 students will attend Wrightsville Beach Elementary (which has a GreatSchools rating of 10 out of 10), MCS Noble Middle (GreatSchools rating of 9) and John T. Hoggard High (GreatSchools rating of 7).

Recent graduates and adults returning to school also have their pick of several fine institutions for higher education, such as the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, Cape Fear Community College and Brunswick Community College.
