Carolina Heights Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Dating back to 1908, the Carolina Heights neighborhood in Wilmington, North Carolina, has secured a spot on the National Register of Historic Places. It is bordered by Market Street, North 13th Street, Rankin Street, and 19th Street in the heart of this Southern city’s downtown.
The community comprises primarily single-family homes. It originally grew out of 18 property deeds at the turn of the 20th century into an upscale development. It is known for its luxury living in a safe and secluded neighborhood, and its close proximity to the hustle and bustle of Wilmington’s lively downtown.
The homes in Carolina Heights range in style from cozy bungalows and country cottages to Georgian Colonials, and the vast majority were constructed between 1910 and the early 1930s. Although many homes are showing their age nearly 100 years after they were built, there are ongoing efforts to restore them to their former mansion-style status.
The historic neighborhood is in a desirable location near public transportation routes and within walking distance to an assortment of arts and entertainment venues. It is also favored by residents for its pedestrian- and pet-friendly streets, with sidewalks lining the majority of roads, including the neighborhood’s major thoroughfare, Market Street.
Residents can make a three-mile commute to nearby Independence Mall, and visit myriad museums, eateries, and cultural attractions throughout the city. The banks of Cape Fear River are less than one and a half miles to the west, and the University of North Carolina-Wilmington is five miles to the east. The shores of the Atlantic Ocean offer residents a host of recreational activities. Nearby beaches include Wrightsville, Kure, and Carolina.
