Lucia Point is a small neighborhood made up of two long cul-de-sacs. There are approximately 50 homes that were built between the late 90’s and shortly after the millennium. All are located on at least a third of an acre and they range in size from 2,000 square feet to just over 4,000 square feet. Most of the homes feature an open floor plan, with many of them offering a split bedroom layout.
There is an HOA in Lucia Point. In 2020, the fees calculated to just $1 a day, but the neighborhood lacks some of the amenities, such as a pool or clubhouse, offered in nearby areas.
Our favorite thing about Lucia Point is its proximity to the Mayfaire Shopping Center. It is within walking distance, directly across the street from all of the shops and restaurants. Bicyclists will also love using the Gary Shell Cross City Trail to get to Wrightsville Beach within a few minutes.
Our least favorite thing is the traffic in the area. The two roads in Lucia Point are quiet streets, but Military Cutoff (the main street that leads into the neighborhood) is prone to backups and congestion. This is especially true in the late afternoon around rush hour. Of course, even at its worst, Wilmington traffic does not compare to the hustle and bustle of big city streets… so depending on where you are moving from, the traffic may not be an issue at all.
A total of eight homes sold in the area in 2020 for a median price of $458,000. Lucia Point is in the Wrightsville Beach Elementary, Noble Middle, New Hanover High school districts.
