WILMINGTON — Expansive views of the marsh, a lush wooded lot and only minutes from downtown Wilmington. Port City Daily’s latest Where We Live takes you just across the Cape Fear River to unincorporated Winnabow, in the community of Liberty Landing.
Originally built in 2006, this 3,056-sq. ft. home is located at 1314 Liberty Landing Road SE, Winnabow, NC 28479, just off River Road. Mere minutes from Leland, and six minutes from downtown Wilmington, this home manages to take you away from it all, while keeping you right in the mix of the cultural hub of southeastern North Carolina.
This southern beach “chic” coastal home includes a pool, playground, screened in porch, an open grilling deck, master bedroom balcony, palm tree lined driveway, and a lush backyard marsh the likes of which you can only find in the Carolina’s.
“The home catches the view of the sun rising behind the house, over the marshland in the morning and sets on the front of the property,” Chris Baynes, REALTOR with Coldwell Bankers Sea Coast Advantage, said.
“It’s absolutely gorgeous,” he said. “And it’s in a nice little neighborhood.”
According to Baynes, Liberty Landing is a “private and friendly neighborhood close to schools, the Bellville Riverwalk, boat ramps, and the newest section of Leland with all of it’s dining and amenities.”
The property sits on 1.4 acres of high land, and features 9-plus acres of riparian water rights that are available for dock space opening up to the Cape Fear River.
“That type of land has different value to different people. Some people don’t care about having all that extra land out there,” Baynes said. “It’s what you see on coastal North Carolina because you have big marshes out there. That’s how that land gets designated and put out there.”
The three-story home has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, an open floor plan with high vaulted ceilings, and large windows offering ample natural lighting. The house features a grand media room, office, and two car garage on the first floor.
Baynes described the house as having a southern coastal design.
The second floor holds the kitchen, living and dining rooms offering access to the screened in porch, as well as the outdoor barbecue deck overlooking the pool. A short hallway connects to the laundry room, two of the home’s three bedrooms, and a bathroom with multi-colored marbled sinks.
The master bedroom is alone on the third floor. It features a walk-in closet and master bathroom, equipped with a walk-in shower and whirlpool-style bathtub. Enjoy quiet views of the marsh from a private third floor balcony.
The house is currently on the market at $489,000. HOA dues are approximately $115 annually, and that mostly goes to upkeep around the neighborhood, according to Baynes.
The home is zoned for Belville Elementary, Leland Middle School and North Brunswick High School, and was listed on the market as of Jan. 27, 2017.
