Are you seeking an exclusive buyer’s agent who knows the whole story on North Carolina coastal real estate for sale – even facts about those more tucked-away towns on the water? You’ve come to right place. Kure Beach sits high on our list of shoreline locations with colorful pasts. While buyers will discover many property options beyond homes in Wilmington NC, one of our favorite towns is located some 15 miles south of the Port City. This small town offers a quieter coastal lifestyle.
From oceanfront beach homes with unparalleled views of the Atlantic to small southern bungalows nestled throughout, Kure Beach provides buyers a wide range of options. Dotted with a handful of eateries, a few retail shops and a fishing pier, Kure Beach is the place to slow down and enjoy a simple life by the water. For decades, those moving to North Carolina or relocating within have been pleasantly surprised when stumbling upon this gem.
Further south, Fort Fisher State Park welcomes visitors and locals with sprawling, authentic Civil War battle grounds. This significant piece of coastal NC property boasts a Civil War Museum, a beautiful beach of its own and the Fort Fisher Aquarium. The Civil War Museum provides endless entertainment, including photo exhibits, audio-video programs and a regular schedule of events like guided tours and reenactments of the second battle of Fort Fisher. The nearly 500,000-gallon Aquarium exhibits wildlife from the waters in and around the Cape Fear region, as well as exotic fish from the Indo-Pacific oceans.
Beyond Fort Fisher, at the southern-most tip of Pleasure Island, lies the Southport Ferry station. The ferry crosses the mouth of the Cape Fear River between Pleasure Island and the town of Southport. A unique and economical option, a trip by ferry is the perfect way to spend a beautiful afternoon as Southport is home to excellent seafood restaurants, multiple antique shops and an outdoor market on the waterfront.
Kure Beach is south of Carolina Beach, so travel to Wilmington takes slightly longer from here (about 30 minutes.) Combined town and county property tax rates for 2013 are $0.81 per $100 of valuation. (Personal property such as autos, trucks, boats, aircraft, motor homes, business assets, etc. are taxed at the same rate as real property).
