Luxury Homes in Carolina Beach & Kure Beach
Homes for Sale for $700,000 and Above
Carolina Beach, Kure Beach, and historic Fort Fisher make up "Pleasure Island" at the lower tip of New Hanover County, NC, where the Cape Fear River, Intracoastal Waterway, and Atlantic Ocean meet. These beach towns are much larger than Wrightsville Beach but provide some of the same luxury amenities as their northern neighbor. All are surrounded by water affording residents access by way of private beach walkways, docks and piers, and protected marinas along the canal and Intracoastal Waterway. Gated communities are available, as well as neighborhoods with swimming pools and sports facilities. Need to take company out to dinner? There's excellent waterfront dining and even more options a short drive to the north in Wilmington.
Built on pilings with multiple stories, luxury homes in Carolina Beach and Kure Beach have numerous balconies and decks for enjoying the panoramic views of the ocean, Intracoastal Waterway, and marsh. Open floor plans with lots of windows, high-quality finishes, hardwood flooring, vaulted ceilings, gas log fireplaces, built-ins, gourmet kitchens, wet bars, elevators, central vacuums, spa-like bathrooms, separate quarters, and storage for paddle boards, surf boards, and kayaks are all features you may find in luxury homes in this area. There are also home offices with views that will make it hard to get any work done. After all, this is the place to both work and play.
While Wrightsville Beach and Pleasure Island share the same coastline, these two areas have different "personalities". Pleasure Island is a little more laid back. The Carolina Beach Boardwalk is a big draw for the area and it's #1 business is the seasonal Britt's Donuts, which has been featured in national magazines and websites. There are also festivals held throughout the year. Past events have included Carolina Beach Music Festival, Port City RibFest, Carolina Beach Dragon Boat Regatta and Festival, Cape Fear Kite Festival, and the Pleasure Island Seafood, Blues & Jazz Festival.
Due to it's proximity to Wilmington, residents have a wide range of options for entertainment. Enjoy golf? Wilmington has multiple excellent golf courses to choose from. There are two within a 10 minute drive from Carolina Beach - Masonboro Country Club and Beau Rivage Golf and Resort. Enjoy art? Cameron Art Museum is a 20 minute drive from Pleasure Island and there are additional gallery options in downtown Wilmington. Enjoy the theater? Thalian Hall has been in use since 1858 and hosts over 250 shows a year. There's so much to do!
