Waterside on Whiskey Creek

Written by Kelly Johnson | Photography by Crystal Glass Photography

Located in the Masonboro Loop area of Wilmington, North Carolina, you’ll find homes located along what we know as Whiskey Creek. With variable outcomes to the question of how Whiskey Creek got its name, it is mostly believed that there had been a nearby wreck of a schooner loaded with casks of whiskey. Presumably, many of the casks washed ashore, while others were recovered by local fishermen, resulting, in the name Whiskey Creek. Thought to have occurred during the Prohibition era, Whiskey Creek can actually date all the way back to 1867 when there was an ongoing battle between smugglers and Wilmington federal officers. Today, Whiskey Creek offers fewer tales of battles and shipwrecks and more pleasures of waterside living.

4310 Lauralis Court has all the views one could wish for in a home located along Whiskey Creek. A beautiful home with solid 8 foot wooden doors and 10 foot high ceilings, situated right on the water, this home showcases exquisite views and luxury living at its finest. If you like entertaining then the gourmet kitchen, featuring high-end Thermador stainless appliances, granite countertops, and solid maple cabinets will certainly catch your eye. The current seller tells us, “The kitchen truly makes entertaining easy with the extra convection oven and the warming drawer.” This creekside home boasts an open kitchen, dining area and large living space all with spectacular views. Downstairs provides homeowners with an in-law suite or apartment with its own separate entrance. It also offers a kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom.

A contemporary river rock gas fireplace is the perfect spot for keeping warm in the cooler months all the while enjoying splendid views of Whiskey Creek.

A  spacious master bedroom located on the main floor gives the home a taste of luxury with a master bath and soaking tub, large walk-in tiled shower, double vanities, and a large closet. Heading upstairs, you will find a large bonus space, which holds potential as a fourth bedroom, plus a full bath and another bedroom tucked away for privacy.


Additionally, this home on the water comes with a two car garage and an extra conditioned bonus room to serve as a gym, office, entertainment room or workshop. For any boaters, it’s only customary that when living on the water you have access to your own boat slip, which 4310 Lauralis Court offers along with a private dock. The water on Whiskey Creek is so quiet and so serene that it’s the ideal porch spot to enjoy a peaceful dinner, looking out on the water.
