Anchors Bend is a beautiful community located across the street from Middle Sound Marina off Middle Sound Loop Road in Wilmington, North Carolina. Considered a boating community due to its proximity to the Intracoastal Waterway, Anchors Bend has a mix of new homes and resales with current new construction being completed by ForeverHome.
The community consists mainly of Craftsman and coastal cottage style floor plans. Features include alley entry garages, professional landscaping, hardwood flooring, fireplaces, decorative white trim, gourmet kitchens with granite and gas cooktops, subway tile, bead board, wainscoting, coffered ceilings, trey ceilings, screened porches, bonus rooms, spa-like master suites, and more! While the homes all follow a similar style, each is beautifully crafted with its own personality with some of the most sought-after details wanted by buyers today.
Floor plans are spacious, ranging from 2,600 – 3,900 heated sq.ft. Homes have 3-5 bedrooms, 4 being the most common, and 3-5 bathrooms. Depending on the property’s location in Anchors Bend, the lot size may be less than a quarter acre or a half acre or more. So, buyers who don’t want a lot of land to upkeep and those who want more space can both find something fitting within the community.
Sidewalk-lined streets, landscaped medians, and roundabouts help to make the community pedestrian friendly. Other amenities include a swimming pool, open air pavilion, and clubhouse. Many residents rent boat slips at Middle Sound Marina and enjoy the convenience of being just 1 mile by boat from Wrightsville Beach.
Anchors Bend is in a very convenient location. Mayfaire Town Center and Regal Cinemas are just 15 minutes away, and Wrightsville Beach is 20 minutes by car, or residents can head 15 minutes north on Market Street to the growing Porters Neck area. There are also 4 golf courses within 20 minutes of the community.
At the time of this post, Anchors Bend is zoned for Castle Hayne Elementary, Noble Middle School, and Laney High School; however, residents have successfully petitioned for Ogden Elementary School. You can double-check the school locator and see the most recent school report cards here.
