Wilmington house description

Experience Wilmington while staying in this perfectly charming home in a location that is very convenient to many attractions; especially if you are filming at Screen Gems.

This home is PET FREE. You can rest assured there has never been a pet sleeping in your bed. Not that we don't love our furry friends! You can look forward to sanitized, luxurious hypo-allergenic linens and comforters, as well.

You'll know the minute you enter the old-English circular stone drive that many more luxurious details await. Nestled discreetly behind 60 year old azaleas and crape myrtle trees you will also enjoy total privacy in the large, serene fenced backyard where something is always blooming in the garden. The birds love it!

The beautiful colors and tasteful furnishings will delight you and uplift your spirit as will the skylights, a gourmet gas cook-top, lots of black granite and carerra marble throughout and original hardwood floors that a man cut from trees off of his farm for his daughter over sixty years ago.

The master suite affords privacy with high transome windows and is superbly equipped with a jacuzzi tub and direct access to lanai and garden, where the morning sun will greet you like an old friend each morning.

YOU WILL LOVE THIS HOME!

                          Year Purchased: 2006

                          About the owner: Hello there! I'm Jeff and here is a picture of my beautiful wife of 31 years, Leigh. Also, our 21 year old son, Skyler, who just graduated from Woodberry Forest School in Virginia and is just finishing up his third year at Hampden-Sydney College in Farmville, Va. We are both from Salisbury, NC and now reside at Holden Beach, NC when we are not in Wilmington. We welcome you to our home in Wilmington! We think this house is blessed to have a very special zen-like feel that you will surely notice and appreciate. We are very happy to have you come and enjoy all of the creative touches, the luxurious conveniences, and the overall great energy that we have waiting for you here at this totally unique and special home.

                          Why the Owner Chose Wilmington:
                          Wilmington is one of North Carolina's most exceptional cities. Settled on the Cape Fear River and just minutes to the ocean...Wilmington has a rich history of accomplishments and a vibrant and utterly-southern culture. Wilmington offers so many attractions, you can be sure there is something special to discover for everyone. We stumbled across this property several years ago and something told me to remodel this house...I did so as a trubute for my wife, who deserves the best. Back then, it was quite a jalopy...and now...I consider this particular remodeling venture an accomplishment of a lifetime. It became more than just a remodeling project. It became an artistic expression and a monumental statement that says, 'You can do much more than you think you can' especially when you put all of your creativity, all your heart, and all your love into it.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Treat yourself to a horse and buggy carriage tour of old-historic Wilmington. Also, tour the battleship USS NORTH CAROLINA, where you will step onto the stage where history took place and experience the thrill of the most decorated US battleship of WWII. (Located just a few minutes away) Visit Mayfair Shopping Center...the award winning development with you can do plenty of upscale shopping and choose from a great variety of restaurants. Mayfair is where we bring our guests and it's our favorite place to go to the movies. : ) Enjoy the beauty of Wrightsville Beach which is just one turn and then a straight shot from this house. Wilmington's famous Azalea Festival will celebrate it's 64th year in 2011 from April 6-10. The Festival is a celebration of Wilmington’s exceptional artwork, gardens, rich history and culture during its five days of entertainment that includes: a parade, street fair, circus, concerts, pageantry, and all that is Southern.
