Olde Point is one of the largest communities in Hampstead, North Carolina. It’s located off Country Club road across the street from The Olde Point Golf Course and just down the road from The Belvedere Golf Course.
The word “diverse” can be used to describe this community. It can be used to describe the residents, the style of homes and even their location.
Here is what we mean; in some parts Olde Point is a waterfront community with some properties located on either the Intracoastal Waterway or tidal marshes with deep water access. It can be called a boating community because all residents have the option to purchase membership to a Yacht Club. Of course, it is also a golf course community with several homes located adjacent to fairways and greens. And it is even what you might call a “wooded community,” especially in the back of the neighborhood, where homes are situated in a heavily forested area with hundreds of hardwood trees, many more than 100 years old.
Olde Point is also a mixture of young, and not so young. The neighborhood is located in the Topsail School District, considered to be one of the best in the state. That’s a big attraction for parents who want to enroll their kids in public school. Still, there are a number of retirees in the neighborhood, many retiring from Camp Lejeune. School buses and Marine flags are both very common sites in the neighborhood.
Finally, the diversity is shown in the style of the more than 700 homes. There really is something for every taste. Considering that the first homes were built here in the early 1970’s and the most recent developments went up in the last couple of years, you can find whatever suits your fancy.
The closest beach is on Topsail Island roughly 20 minutes away. Downtown Wilmington, depending on traffic, is a 40 minute drive. People working in the Mayfaire area, or the eastern part of New Hanover County, have a commute anywhere between 15 and 30 minutes.
So far in 2023 a total of 15 homes have sold in Olde Point for an average price of $741,953.
