Leland currently ranks as the twelfth most rapidly growing town nationwide and the foremost growing town in our state. Positioned just beyond the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge in Brunswick County, it’s affordability and accessibility to area beaches and the city of Wilmington makes the town an attractive option for homebuyers.
As the home to hundreds of acres of wetland, Leland is in close proximity to numerous parks, nature preserves, rivers, waterways, and creeks. The town’s abundant water access, paired with its subtropical climate, allows for year-round outdoor recreation such as kayaking and fishing. Birdwatching is also a prominent outdoor activity in Leland, as the town is positioned in one of only three major bird fly zones in the country. Residents of Leland also enjoy closer proximity to Oak Island, Southport, and Myrtle Beach, in addition to Wilmington area beaches. Boasting three state-of-the-art courses, Leland has also established itself as a distinguished golfing destination in recent years.
Homebuyers are frequently drawn to Leland for its growing assortment of amenity-rich, “lifestyle” communities. Brunswick Forest, Waterford, Magnolia Greens, and Compass Pointe– with their impressive clubhouses, town centers, and more– are among Leland’s most sought-after planned developments. Residents of Leland enjoy convenient access to an increasing selection of local dining, retail, and professional services within the area; however, Historic Downtown Wilmington– with its plethora of fine dining and local shopping options– is just a short drive across the Cape Fear River.
