WILMINGTON, NC –  If January pending sales numbers are an indicator, 2017 could be a solid year for luxury home sales in New Hanover, Brunswick and Pender counties.

A total of fifteen homes with asking prices in excess of $1 million went under contract in the tri-county area this past month.  That compares to three in January 2016 and ties 2005 for the most luxury homes ever put under contract during the month of January.

The most expensive property to go under contract is 334 Cabbage Inlet Lane, Wilmington, priced at $3,295,000.  With five bedrooms and 5 baths, this home is more than 7,000 square feet and sits on two-plus acres along the Intracoastal Waterway.  Among the many note-worthy features are four boat slips with a floating dock and boat lift; a free-formed salt water pool with vanishing edge; a detached guest house over the heated and cooled three-car garage; Brazilian teak floors throughout; radiant heat in bathrooms; copper gutters; Kolbe & Kolbe hurricane glass windows and doors; a whole house generator; double Wolf ovens and sub-zero appliances; and breathtaking views of Whiskey Creek and the Intracoastal Waterway.

Twenty-three luxury properties came on the market during January, compared to 24 for the same month last year.  The most expensive new listing is 407 Bradley Creek Point Road, Wilmington, with an asking price of $5,195,000.  Built in 2013, the home incorporates many antique and re-purposed doors, mantles, beams, and fixtures from around the United States and France.  The 6500 square foot home overlooks Bradley Creek.
