Historic District Real Estate

Historic District - Wilmington: Glorious mixtures of antebellum and Victorian homes framed by vibrant azaleas, magnolias and oak trees line the 230 blocks of the historic district in Wilmington, North Carolina. Horse-drawn carriages and trolleys plod down the streets, clattering against the occasional cobblestone and brick sections of road. All the while, residents stroll the walkways and gather in front of a fountain in the middle of the road to discuss the day's happenings. It's a picture so classically American antebellum, that it's easy to forget, just for a moment, that this is the 21st century.

Homes for sale in the Historic District can be seen below, and are updated daily. Read more about Wilmington's Historic District.

Wilmington's Historic District Lifestyle

While the homes, buildings and cemetery have been lovingly and carefully restored, all the conveniences of the modern era are available to residents and tourists in the historic district. Step outside of your Greek Revival home in the historic district, and you can be in a restaurant, art gallery, gift shop or coffee shop in just minutes. Retail, residential, historical and commercial spaces are so artfully blended into Wilmington's historic downtown that travel experts at Frommer's named the district as one of the "Nation's Most Walkable Cities."

Fun-filled beach communities, dozens of golf courses and activities surrounding the Intracoastal Waterway are within a half hour's drive of Wilmington's historic district. Residents can enjoy a day in the sun and be home in time for dinner. The recreational opportunities in town and nearby locales are abundant and add to Wilmington's high quality of life.
