New Hanover


Nestled along the North Cape Fear River, our neighborhood is perfectly perched on the bluffs, just 10 minutes from Downtown Wilmington, N.C. Residents enjoy exceptional water view from our half mile long Riverwalk and access to amazing amenities, such as our 183-slip Marina, state-of-the-art fitness center, oversized swimming pool, community post office, and very own neighborhood cafe.

Our development philosophy is one of sustainability and environmental preservation. We're an area leader in innovative, low impact development techniques, ensuring that more than a third of the land is preserved as open space, parks and trails. Awarded the 2015 Outstanding Stewardship Award, we are proud to live in harmony with nature. River Bluffs features true southern architecture reminiscent of homes found along the riverbanks of historic Wilmington, Charleston and Savannah with alley fed garages, narrow streets with treed center islands, and homes with 8 foot deep front porches encouraging neighborly interaction and a true sense of community. 

New school facilities, major interstates and the proximity of Wilmington's airport, entertainment, major medical and destination shopping are just minutes from the gated entrance of River Bluffs.
