The town of Leland, population 22,000, lies just across the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge from the town of Wilmington. Many residents prefer Leland over Wilmington as it offers more affordable options for single family homes. The median price is just north of $236,000 for a single family home in Leland and the values of the homes in the area have risen more than 5% in the last year and are expected to continue to increase.
With an abundance of beautiful neighborhoods, parks, golf courses and outdoor community areas, Leland continues to grow into a popular residential town. There are more than 10 parks just inside of Leland’s boundaries. At each park you can expect to find long walking trails, family playgrounds, dog friendly parks, creeks and lakes to explore, and endless views to enjoy. Compass Pointe, Magnolia Greens, Brunswick Forest, Cape Fear National and Old Fort Golf Course are among the private and public golf courses available to the community.
Another Leland attraction is its central location near North Carolina’s outer beaches and port cities. Wrightsville Beach, Carolina Beach and Southport are roughly 30 minutes away and offer plenty of fun for a day trip. While Wrightsville Beach and Carolina Beach line the east coast of North Carolina, Southport is tucked away behind Bald Head Island and Oak Island. Less than 30 miles from Leland, Southport is a quaint beach town accessible by car, boat or ferry and has a wonderful selection of mom and pop gift shops, boutiques and seafood dining options perfect for all ages to explore.
Leland students are served by a number of top-rated schools, including Charter Day School (which serves K-8), Belville Elementary and Lincoln Elementary, and Leland Middle School. Most students in Leland attend North Brunswick High for grades nine through twelve, which is the public high school.
As the town of Wilmington grows, Leland has been quick to follow. With new housing developments, churches and other community centered spaces, Leland is an up-and-coming place to call home in coastal North Carolina.
