Wilmington Neighborhoods: Whisper Creek

Whisper Creek currently is one of Wilmington's most desired family neighborhoods. It is leafy, low key, with spacious large tree lined yards. Each house has generally 1/3 to 1/2 acre lots. The houses are not new but are a combination of brick and newer siding treatments. There are a lot of kids in the neighborhood as the areas selected schools - Holly Tree, Roland Grise and Hoggard High school enjoy good school ratings. The houses range from $ 200K - 400K - just a little above the current average New Hanover County price ranges. Currently there are 7 houses for sale in the Whisper Creek subdivison ranging in price from $ 209K to $ 369K.

3 houses sold in the last year here selling for $ 95% of their listed value.

The subdivision has a lot going for it. It is :

15 minutes to Carolina Beach, 20 minutes to Wrightsville Beach

less than one mile to shopping and many take out restaurants

Very close to the area schools which are within 3 miles

has a nice city park right next to the neighborhood. The basic reason for this park was to create a pond that would be used to filter all the water from area properties before they enter Whisper Creek and then into Bradley Creek for eventual flow into the Intracoastal Waterway. This man made park has proved to be very useful to naturally cleanse the water of fertilizer and the like before it continues to the ICCW. The park has a large pond, walkway around its perimeter and 2 bridges, a covered eating area, playground and rest rooms. This hidden jewel is picturesque and very enjoyable for local residents. Let me show you some of the houses in this family friendly area!
