Figure Eight Island is one of the most exclusive areas in the Wilmington Region. Protected by a guard gated draw-bridge, the island is restricted access to owners and guests only. Homes range from the high hundreds of thousands to well into the millions of dollars. In addition, Figure Eight is home to a number of celebrities, politicians and sports figures. The 1,300 acre island is protected by a home owners association, and is only accessible to the nearly five hundred residents. If you are looking for peace and quiet, Figure Eight Island is the perfect location for a vacation home, as there are no condos, no hotels and no commercial buildings at all on the entire island, but you are only a short drive from shopping and central Wilmington.
