Welcome to the Neighborhood: Ardmore

Homes for Sale in Wilmington, NC

Home Types

Being that Ardmore is considered part of the Westbrook­Ardmore Historic District, the neighborhood is very unique in its possession of distinguished architectural styles throughout. Homes vary from small, quaint bungalows made from brick, clapboard or stucco to charming Box Prairie homes to larger, colonial homes that harken back to the intermingling of cultures that existed in the nation during the 1800s — particularly along the coast.

Trees line nearly every road in Ardmore, sometimes creating an arching canopy over the road. Ardmore is part of a joint neighborhood association with its neighbor, Carolina Place, and as part of a green initiative, the two neighborhoods joined together to plant even more trees throughout both areas, so Ardmore’s picturesque trees will only increase in number. There also sits a small park in the center of the neighborhood, furnished by park benches and two, small playgrounds.


The neighborhood of Ardmore is located right between Wrightsville Avenue and South 18th Street and encompasses Ann Street, Nun Street, South 19th Street and Church Street. It also sits very near to Market Street, which is populated with an array of restaurants, businesses and retail stores, providing convenient shopping close by. Only 20 minutes from Wrightsville Beach and just outside of downtown and the Cape Fear River, Ardmore is right in the thick of things.


Ardmore is part of New Hanover County Schools, so K­12 students in the neighborhood will attend Forest Hills Global Elementary School, Williston Middle School and John T. Hoggard High School.

There are also several nearby institutions of higher learning for high school graduates and adults, such as the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, Cape Fear Community College and Brunswick Community College.
