Our History Here: Wrightsville Beach

By Judy Royal

Soon after crossing the drawbridge from the mainland, you’ll reach a fork in the road and face your first decision at Wrightsville Beach. Bearing left will take you to the famous Johnnie Mercer’s Fishing Pier and near the site where a giant sperm whale named Trouble once washed ashore and refused to leave. Bearing right will take you to the classic downtown and points south, including the Coast Guard station and the site of the late, great Lumina Pavilion. 

Either way, you can’t go wrong. 

Either way, you’ll find a vibrant mixture of old and new.

Either way, amid landscape-altering attacks by both nature and developers, you’ll find the constancy of waves against sand.

So begins the synopsis of Wrightsville Beach: The Luminous Island by Ray McAllister, a 2007 book that explores the history and heart of this wildly popular vacation destination near Wilmington. With a year-round population of 2,604 that expands to 45,000-50,000 in the summer months, people have been flocking to Wrightsville Beach for fun in the sun for years through various periods of development.

The seaside town occupies one of the numerous barrier islands along North Carolina’s coast, which is 1,000-5,000 feet in width and stretches almost 4 miles from Masonboro Inlet to the south to Mason’s Inlet to the north (it lies between Figure Eight Island and Masonboro Island). This island containing Wrightsville Beach was once owned by the State of North Carolina and known as New Hanover Banks. It was transferred into private hands in three separate grants between 1791 and 1881. Development would have to wait, however, because distance and lack of transportation other than boats impeded accessibility. From the late 1700s until near the end of the 1800s, there were no residents and very few visitors except for some fishermen and hunters. Sailing soon became popular, and frequent races led to the founding of the Carolina Yacht Club in April 1853. Its members built a clubhouse, the first structure on what was now being called Wrightsville Beach after the Wright family who owned land on the nearby mainland. The Carolina Yacht Club held dozens of races every year and is now recognized as the third oldest yacht club in the country.

More development followed: another yacht club, two hotels, and several beach cottages. Wrightsville Beach was incorporated on March 6, 1899, with about 40-50 mostly seasonal residents. Just prior to that, accessibility to the beach began to improve when Shell Road, a passage for horse-drawn carts topped by oyster shells and following the route of current Wrightsville Avenue, was completed. Just a few months later, Wilmington Seacoast Railroad Co. built rail transportation, known as the open-air Beach Car, from downtown Wilmington to the Hammocks (present-day Harbor Island, a sizeable land mass formed as a result of dredging spoils from the Intracoastal Waterway in the early 20th century) with a footbridge to the beach. During the same year as incorporation, the rail line was extended across the Hammocks and onto the barrier island and then southward along what is now South Lumina Avenue. The Beach Car served as the lifeline to Wrightsville Beach, transporting thousands of visitors every summer until the trolley era began to give way to the automobile in 1935, when a two-lane bridge was built across the Intracoastal Waterway to Harbor Island and then over Banks Channel to the beach.

At the end of the Beach Car line was the sprawling and magnificent Lumina Pavilion, built in 1905 and offering 12,500 square foot of games and activities – including a dance hall, bowling alley, snack shop, shooting gallery, and movie screen in the surf – on three levels. Virtually every Big Band era band played there until the last, Vaughn Monroe, took the stage in early 1952. By then, times were changing and the Lumina’s popularity was waning. Crowds diminished as the trolley line came to an end in 1940, and the building deteriorated to the point of being condemned in 1972. It was demolished in 1973.

While the Lumina is no longer physically present, those who yearn for a simpler time when Big Bands played and people danced the night away can relive that era during Lumina Daze. The 21st annual event, chock full of nostalgia and reminiscing, will be 5-9 p.m. Aug. 27 at Blockade Runner Beach Resort, 275 Waynick Blvd. in Wrightsville Beach. Lumina Daze features live music, dancing, an inflatable movie screen showing a film on the lawn, a cash bar, food, a silent auction, and history displays. Tickets are $20 in advance at the Wrightsville Beach Museum of History, 303 W. Salisbury St. in Wrightsville Beach, or Blockade Runner, and they will also be available at the door. For more information, visit http://www.wbmuseumofhistory.com/events/lumina-daze, email wbmuseum@bizec.rr.com, or call 910-256- 2569.

Over the years, Wrightsville Beach’s year-round population grew as the area weathered and survived hurricanes, including Category 4 Hazel in October 1954, and a 1934 fire that destroyed hundreds of buildings on the north end of the island. Although the Beach Cars and Big Bands are gone, visitors still jam the streets as they make their way to the salt and sand at one of the nation’s most popular beaches.

For more about Wrightsville Beach’s history, including a timeline of events, visit the Wrightsville Beach Museum of History website or, better yet, make plans to stop by to browse the exhibits, discover how life was lived in a typical summer cottage, and check out the museum’s centerpiece, a 12-foot model of Wrightsville Beach as it looked circa 1910.

Now that you know Wrightsville Beach’s past, let Intracoastal Realty help you make the storied area part of your future. We are a full-service real estate brokerage operating since 1976, and we currently have 13 offices with over 400 agents and staff to serve Southeastern North Carolina, including the areas of Wilmington, Wrightsville Beach, Carolina Beach, Kure Beach, Southport, Oak Island, Ocean Isle Beach, Leland, Hampstead, and Topsail Island.

Southeastern North Carolina Beach Access Rules for Dogs

By Judy Royal

If you’re in the market for Wilmington NC real estate or you just want to take a vacation in the area, there’s a good chance you might be factoring a four-legged family member into your plans, as pet ownership is steadily on the rise; 65 percent of U.S. households, or about 79.7 million, own a pet, according to the 2015-2016 National Pet Owners Survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association, an increase from 56 percent of U.S. households in 1988, the first year the survey was conducted.

While you’ll find a variety of pet types in American homes, the most common are dogs and cats. Cats can settle into (and, let’s face it, take over) practically any dwelling space and be perfectly content with never venturing beyond the walls of your residence. Dogs, however, are the pets you’ll be most likely to take on excursions with you. Southeastern North Carolina, with its numerous public beaches, is a prime location for an interactive adventure with your canine companion.

Before you pack up the pooch and embark on such an excursion, though, there are some things you need to know. It’s not a Fido free-for-all out there. Each beach has various rules (and hefty fines for those who don’t comply) so people and animals can live in harmony while enjoying fun in the sun. But no matter where you are, keep your dogs off the dunes and be sure to bring plenty of poop bags – and use them – so your furry pal doesn’t leave behind any unwanted surprises.

New Hanover County

Carolina Beach: Leashed dogs are allowed on the municipal beach strand anytime October 1-March 31 and only between 5 p.m. and 9 a.m. April 1-September 30. Town Council recently voted on the latter, making its municipal beach strand the only one in New Hanover County to allow dogs during peak tourism months, even with restricted hours.

Freeman Park, however, located off the municipal beach strand on the north end of Pleasure Island, has the following rules: Leashed dogs are allowed year-round during all hours. They may be unleashed and under voice control October 1-March 31 if the owner is within a reasonable distance.

Kure Beach: Leashed dogs are allowed on the municipal beach strand anytime October 1-March 1. They are not allowed at all April 1- September 30.

Fort Fisher State Recreation, however, located off the municipal beach strand on the south end of Pleasure Island, has the following rules: Leashed dogs are allowed on the beach year-round during all hours.

Wrightsville Beach: Leashed dogs are allowed on the beach anytime October 1-March 1. They are not allowed at all April 1- September 30.

Masonboro Island, however, located across the rock jetty just south of Wrightsville Beach and accessible only by boat, has the following rules: Leashed dogs are allowed on the beach year-round during all hours.

Brunswick County

Bald Head Island: Dogs are allowed on the beach year-round during all hours. They must be on a leash from sunset to sunrise during sea turtle nesting season, which is May 1-November 15. They may be unleashed and under voice control at other times.

Ocean Isle Beach: Leashed dogs are allowed on the beach anytime Labor Day-Memorial Day and only between 6 p.m. and 9 a.m. Memorial Day-Labor Day.

Sunset Beach: Leashed dogs are allowed on the beach anytime from the day after Labor Day-the Thursday preceding Memorial Day and only between 6 p.m. and 8 a.m. from the Friday preceding Memorial Day-Labor Day.

Top 5 Mistakes to Avoid When Selling Your Waterfront Home

Think selling a waterfront home is a no-brainer? Think again.

We’ve covered general tips for selling a house before, what about selling a waterfront home? While selling a waterfront home has similarities to selling a house say, in the suburbs, there are distinct differences that need to be accounted for. Though waterfront homes are a coveted item for buyers, they don’t just sell themselves. Learn what missteps to avoid (and correct) here!

1. Choosing the Wrong Agent

You’re going to need an agent on your side for this, specifically, one with experience selling and dealing with waterfront homes. Though appraisals aren’t necessarily a must for every home getting ready to enter the market, they are extremely valuable for waterfront homes, particularly because the value of waterfront homes differs so vastly from one home to the next based on their location, amenities and so forth. In light of the overall price of the home and the associated costs that tag along with selling, appraisals should be considered money very well spent.

Agents should conduct a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) in order to determine the value (and, subsequently, the asking price) of the home. Factors that should be included in this assessment include:

  • Location (naturally)
  • Waterfront size, or the size of the body of water that the property is located on/near.
  • Amenities of the property, such as docks, beaches, etc.
  • Frontage, the land the bridges the property and the water, or the general amount of land surrounding the property. Agents need to consider the amount of frontage, as well as its condition. Is it available for recreational use? Is it even and easy to traverse, or steep and sloped?

2. Pricing Too High

Waterfront homes will almost always possess a higher value than your average landlocked home. This does not automatically garner an astronomical listing price though! The factors mentioned above will do much to determine what a fair asking price should be, in conjunction with a recent appraisal. People are generally more willing to spend more on waterfront properties, but they also expect a certain amount of amenities and property requirements before doing so. When selling your waterfront home, make sure it lives up to the listing price. If all your property has to offer is a view of the water, it should not be listed alongside the likes of houses with private beaches and docks. Again, appraisals do much to determine the right price from the get-go.

3. Neglecting “Water” Appeal

You’re probably familiar with the term “curb appeal,” and that still applies to waterfront homes. Additionally, however, is “water appeal,” the view of the house from the water. While investing in a clean, tidy house by view of the street is a must, so is investing a picturesque view from the water. Other elements to pay heed to are:

  • The condition of docks. Are docks covered in green film? Or are they bright and clean? Are they safe? Do they look inviting?
  • “Pristine” shores. Whether it’s just seaweed or literal garbage, both “clutter” shores (And one is bad for the environment, a major no-no when trying to sell your waterfront home!) Make sure shores aren’t littered with big debris that would deter potential buyers.
  • Water access. How accessible is the water from your home? Do you have a dock? Can you launch a boat from it? Is the water deep enough? Is there a place for new buyers to lounge or fish?
  • Waterfront visibility. This is a big one. Almost all buyers looking for a waterfront home are envisioning themselves waking up to the view — but can they actually see the water from the house? Make sure overgrown shrubs are kept at bay and windows are crystal clear!

4. Lackluster Marketing

An experienced agent will do more than just sell the house, they’ll sell the lifestyle! A waterfront home is a lifestyle, so missing this detail is a major mistake. Listings should include all amenities, whether physical (like docks) or activity-based (such as the fact that the home is conducive to backyard water skiing, for example). They should include descriptions of the view, and the natural beauty. Better yet — they should include pictures of said natural beauty.

Waterfront homes should feature photography or videos of both the home’s interior and exterior, as well as the surrounding property, so that potential buyers, especially those that may be searching for their dream waterfront home from afar, can better visualize all that the property has to offer. Listings should also be advertised via a variety of platforms. A sign in the frontyard won’t cut it, and neither will a solitary listing. In order to get all eyes on your waterfront home, agents should employ multiple strategies via social media, housing web platforms and more.

5. Skipping Important Details

It’s not exactly surprising that waterfront homes can be more susceptible to the elements, and that means flooding. If your waterfront house needs flood insurance, this is a detail that needs to be conveyed early on in the process, and not at the final moment before everyone signs paperwork. Flood insurance on a waterfront home can drastically change the mortgage payments that buyers can expect, so waiting can lead to either lost buyers or major delays at the time of closing. Buyers also need to be made aware of circumstances such as whether or not the property has a holding tank, septic tank or access to public sewers. If the home uses a tank, buyers need to know when it was last pumped.

Selling a waterfront home certainly has its advantages, being as desirable as they are among buyers, and with these tips, selling yours should be relatively stress free!
