                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About the owner: I recently retired from selling residential real estate. I have two children and five grandchildren, two cats and one dog. I live at Kure Beach, about 20 miles from historic downtown Wilmington.

                  Why the Owner Chose Wilmington:
                  I chose to live in Wilmington because of the totally charming relaxed life-style, and the user friendly weather. The people are sweet and helpful and really make it a joy to live here.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Walking around downtown with my dog, and having coffee every morning at Java Dog; browsing in the antique and consignment shops. The beach is a 20 minute drive at rush hour.
