Welcome to our beautiful Lions Gate community! Built in the mid-80s, we are five minutes from Wrightsville Beach, 10 minutes from Interstate 40 and 15 minutes to the Wilmington airport and downtown Wilmington, at 1800 Eastwood Road. The Intracoastal Waterway is two minutes away and separates Lions Gate from Wrightsville Beach and the Atlantic Ocean. 168 two and three-bedroom town homes are set in the midst of lovely old trees, shrubs and flower gardens. Once an exclusive rural retreat for the wealthy, the grounds still resound with the original masonry, statuary and plantings that gave us our name.
Lions Gate features a lovely clubhouse, with hardwood floors, fireplace, kitchen, bar and a veranda with rocking chairs, and is surrounded by lawns and a pretty fountain. Adjacent to the clubhouse is a beautiful swimming pool with spacious areas for sunning and reading. Directly across from the clubhouse are three hard-surface tennis courts.
The upscale and lovely Lumina Station shopping plaza is next door and within easy walking distance, with restaurants, boutique shops and the ever-popular Port City Java coffee shop. Less than five minutes away is the award-winning Mayfaire Town Center, featuring a 16-screen Cineplex and a vast array of shopping options and restaurants.
The active Lions Gate Homeowners Association manages a continuing program of improvements, including a re-paving project completed in mid-2008, a re-landscaped entrance and systemic unit maintenance and upgrades. This is part of an organized effort to keep Lions Gate in top-quality condition.
