About Beverly Place

My husband and I bought the house in 1993 while he was producing a movie at the studios in Wimington. We since have spent many a great summer here with our family and friends. We've watched the Wrightsville Beach area grow up into an upscale area with great restaurants, shopping, culture and nightlife but still maintain it's roots as an old fashioned family beach town. We live in Pennsylvania but get to Wrightsville Beach as often as possible. We have two children that spent their summers at the beach and now that they are grown they come back every year with their friends. And soon their children will enjoy the same ocean with the perfect temperature, perfect waves for body surfing, kayaking or longboarding.

Beverly Place purchased this house in 1993

Why Beverly Place chose North Carolina

We worked in Wrightsville in the film business in the 90's, rented the house and when it went on the market, we loved it so much we bought it.

What makes this house unique

Total relaxation. The deck is perfect for sitting and watching the ocean with a glass of wine and a good book. The semi-private walk to the beach from the deck is shared by only ten houses and has no access from the street. Therefore the beach is almost totally empty in front of our house. We can drive up to the Mayfair shopping center three miles away for some great restaurants, shopping and movies, or stay on the island and eat at local fish places like the bridgetender, the fish house, the dockside,the oceanic, or the waterside: All with great views of the intracoastal or the ocean. Farmer's market on Mondays. Redix shopping should not be missed, it's right by the bridge. Rent a boat at the Waterside restaurant.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I can't begin to express how pleased I was with the location of your home. Plus, it truly has been a pleasure dealing with you Beverly. Your friendliness and helpfulness have been fantastic. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. We usually stay in an oceanfront house, but yours was even more convenient and closer to the beach, with an unobstructed fantastic view and no steep steps to deal with to get down to the beach. . Everyone loved the layout of the house, private rooms, cute decorations and a big kitchen with lots of stools and seating for hanging out. I'm looking for an excuse to head up that way again sometime next year...and you know where I would like to stay!!
