Southern charm, warm hospitality and strong social networks are the hallmarks of the new planned community of Autumn Hall. Just 15 minutes from downtown Wilmington, the master-planned community merges the charm of old Southern coastal villages with the amenities and comfort of the 21st century. At the heart of the development are the hundreds-of years-old twisted live-oak trees draped with moody Spanish moss. The community has preserved the existing streams, allowing them to meander through the development's neighborhoods and to give an old-world feel to the community.
Wilmington, Savannah and Beaufort are the inspiration for this recreation of an old Southern town. Its central concept is the revival of the quintessential American Main Street, complete with the large, picturesque town fountain. Like spokes on a wheel, neighborhood streets stem from Main Street, creating a pleasant walking experience through the neighborhoods and the town center. Shops and offices are within steps of the neighborhoods, establishing plenty of opportunities for neighbors to visit and socialize with one another en route to the town center and home. The Creek Club and a tennis club create more opportunities for socializing and engaging in community activities.
Just as Autumn Hall retained the area's streams, the development is committed to preserving the region's tidal-creek headwaters, live oaks, long-leaf pines and marshes. In keeping these features, the community achieves its old-world ambiance and establishes many recreational opportunities for its residents.
