Echo Farms Homes for Sale & Neighborhood Information

House hunting? Echo Farms is a unique neighborhood which began being developed in the 1970s. At the turn of the century it was the site of a 1,000-acre dairy farm. The owner, A.O. McEachern, chose the name "Echo Farms" because the property's stately trees carried the sound of wind through their branches. In its heyday, the farm's 200+ herd of Holsteins produced nearly 300,000 gallons of milk a year.

The Holsteins may be gone, but the gently rolling pastures, lush stands of trees and native shrubs remain. The residential area was developed in the 1970s as a premier golf and country club community. It has certainly stood the test of time and is still considered one of Wilmington's loveliest neighborhoods! 

Both single-family and townhomes are available in Echo Farms. They are all just minutes from the amenity-filled pool and tennis club area, where there is also a nice little bar and grill. Of course, the centerpiece is the 18-hole golf course, which was designed by Gene Hamm and updated by British golf designer, Ian Scott Taylor. Along with avid golfers and tennis bums, families with kids absolutely love living at Echo Farms. There are year round opportunities and summer camps where youngsters can hone their skills and compete on the community swim, golf and tennis teams.



Because it is located just off the 17th-Street Extension, Carolina Beach Road, Independence Boulevard and Barnards Creek-Echo Farms is convenient to many of the Port City's major draws, such as historic downtown, Greenfield Lake, New Hanover Regional Medical Center, UNC-Wilmington, Independence Mall, the Cameron Art Museum, Halyburton Park, and nearby beaches. Public schools that serve the area are Mary C. Williams Elementary, Myrtle Grove Middle, and New Hanover High.

Perhaps the best way to understand the special appeal that Echo Farms holds for its residents is to hear what they have to say. Fortunately, the Star News did a feature story on the neighborhood in 2011. Here's an excerpt from the article:

What residents say: Echo Farms is not just a neighborhood, it is a social network. Brad Reid, president of the Echo Farms HOA, and Taylor Jones, vice president, describe community gatherings like pool and block parties, neighborhood-wide yard sales and Christmas caroling, complete with flatbed trailer and sound system. Reid said this sense of community helps create the neighborhood's atmosphere.

"People are the key to it all. Neighbors generally care and are willing to help each other out," Reid said. "The quality of life here is exceptional."
