Located just off Market Street in the Forest Hills area of Wilmington, Beaumont is a darling little community easily overlooked if you're new to the area. It’s an established community made up of older homes and mid-sized lots, wooded and landscaped for privacy. Sidewalks line the streets providing a safe path to and from the community park and Forest Hills Elementary School, which are a short walk or bike ride away.
Most homes in Beaumont were built in the 1950s, but many have been updated with modern features. Ranches and bungalows with traditional layouts and brick exteriors are the primary home styles. While many people picture small homes when they think of the 1950s, you’ll be surprised by the space and variety these homes provide, as well as the darling 1950’s touches they maintain (hardwood floors, molding, unique fireplaces, corner windows, etc.). Each has its own personality, something you don’t often see in some of the modern, mass-produced communities.
Beaumont does not have a homeowners' association, and therefore, some of the flashier amenities of newer communities. However, their absence guarantees homeowners more freedom, especially when it comes to home improvements and parking, which would normally have to be approved by an HOA. Plus, the community park has a basketball court and playground, and the YMCA is located just around the corner on Market Street, so residents don't really need the fanciful amenities.
Downtown Wilmington is a cultural center with attractive little shops and great local restaurants, and Beaumont is a mere five to ten minute drive away. Beaumont is also located within shouting distance of Indochine, a favorite local restaurant, and around the corner from popular Port City Java.
