There’s an area of Wilmington that often goes unnoticed by buyers conducting MLS home searches. It’s called Scotts Hill. Why is it unnoticed? It’s technically part of Wilmington, but unlike most of Wilmington, it does not fall within New Hanover County – it’s part of Pender County, located just past the US 17/Market Street merger on the way to Hampstead.
Scotts Hill is a quiet area of Wilmington with a wide variety of properties for sale, including lots for building custom homes. Part of Scotts Hill borders the Intracoastal Waterway and there are numerous homes with private piers/docks and beaches. Scotts Hill Marina is located off Scotts Hill Loop Road and provides wet slips, dry storage, and boat ramp access, as well as a convenience store.
Many homes in this area fall within the $200,000-$400,000 range, with a few lower priced starter homes and higher priced luxury homes (mainly waterfront) mixed in. This is definitely not a cookie cutter neighborhood. Homes have been being built in Scotts Hill since the 1980’s and there are plenty of styles to choose from. There’s even room for new construction.
Some of the sub-communities in Scotts Hill have homeowner associations. However, other areas do not. It’s also important to note that some homes are listed as belonging to New Hanover County Schools and others are under Pender County. So, it’s important that each property is investigated prior to making an offer, if the schools or HOA are an important factor in choosing a home to buy.
The Scotts Hill area is seeing many positive improvements in the way of amenities. During the spring/summer of 2015, New Hanover Regional Medical Center opened up an emergency medical facility right behind the NHRMC Atlantic Surgicenter on U.S. 17 right before Scotts Hill Loop Road. Also, in the area is Poplar Grove Plantation, Scotts Hill Hardware and Supply, and Scotts Hill Animal Hospital. Of course, Lowes, Harris Teeter, Food Lion, multiple restaurants, a post office, etc. are less than 5 miles away in the Porters Neck area of Wilmington.

Located off Carolina Beach Road is one of H&H Homes’ newest communities, Adam’s Landing. If you’re looking for something small and quiet, but in reasonable driving distance of the beach, you should take a closer look at this no-thru community. There are 42 home sites currently in development and it’s only about 15 minutes from Carolina Beach!
Homes in the community range from 2,000 to 3,000 square-feet with 4-5 bedrooms and 2.5-3.5 baths. All of the homes are two stories with two car garages, and listing prices start in the mid-200’s. Features include many that current buyers are looking for – covered front porches, coffered ceilings, dual vanities, garden tubs, kitchen islands, walk-in closets, trey ceilings, gas fireplaces, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, security systems, laundry rooms, and engineered hardwood floors. If you buy a pre-sale, you can choose additional flex spaces, as well as colors and finishes. So, it’s a good idea to get in early.
Adam’s Landing doesn’t have any in-community amenities, like a pool or club house, but it’s close to shopping and dining in the Monkey Junction area. Just up the road is Echo Farms Golf & Country Club and, as stated before, Carolina Beach isn’t very far away, either. Additionally, at the back of the community is green open space, which backs up to a preserve.
The current school districts are Williams Elementary, Myrtle Grove Middle School, and Eugene Ashley High School, but should be verified upon offer submission. You can view state report cards for these schools here.

The Overlook is one of the newest communities located off Middle Sound Loop Road in the Ogden area. It’s midway between Market Street and the Intracoastal Waterway. So, it’s in an area that feels away from it all, but is just a short drive from the new Walmart, Lowes, multiple grocery stores, and a wonderful selection of restaurants.
With just 50 home sites, The Overlook is a D.R. Horton community. That means the homes are back by 35 years of experience, which has amounted to over 500,000 homes built. This community is sure to please anyone looking a quality build in a community where you have the chance to get to know your neighbors. It features lovely tree-lined streets and sidewalks perfect for evening strolls or little ones riding bikes. Plus, water features and professional landscaping create a pleasing aesthetic.
The home plans for The Overlook are primarily two-story, but there are two floor plans that are one-story, with one of them having an optional second floor media/bonus room. The homes span 2,000-3,300 square-feet and have a standard two-car garage. Currently, they’re priced between the upper $200’000s and upper $300,000s.
Colonial, Traditional, and Transitional Styles are common in The Overlook, and the homes boast many features that buyers are looking for, including covered porches, open floor plans, gourmet kitchens, walk-in closets, high ceilings, master suites, screened porches, ceramic tile, backsplashes, walk-in glass showers, gas log fireplaces, etc. The Harbor Oak plan at The Overlook was a Silver winner for 2015’s Parade of Homes, an annual event in which new construction homes are ranked to find the best of the best.
Those who purchases a pre-build home instead of a something currently under construction will be given the opportunity to customize the floor plan and exterior. Those who opt for one of the quick move-in homes will be limited to just interior customizations. The best way to learn about these is to schedule a tour of the model home. Interested?
