Wilmington house description

Welcome to the O'Connor House, featured in the 2011 Secret Garden Tour and the 2012 Azalea Festival Home Tour. The home was completely renovated with all the modern conveniences and upscale decor. The perfect location for wedding visitors and vacationers. Centrally located in town (truly walking distance to downtown restaurants and activities) makes it convenient to churches and reception facilities and after the wedding take a walking tour of historic downtown Wilmington right from our front door; or take a horse drawn carriage ride and learn about the history of this city; or take a trolley tour past the mansions and restored homes dating back to the American Revolution and Civil War; or just sit back and enjoy the visitors passing your front porch on their way to the farmer's market, Azalea Parade or Fourth of July fireworks. And for our wedding guests, the horse drawn carriage and trolley rides are popular means of transportation to the church or reception location

Wilmington has so much to offer and the O'Connor House is so convenient! So, spend a vacation in town. Save a little money and enjoy the city. And if you like to get away to the beach, it is only a short 15 minute ride to the beautiful beaches of Wrightsville Beach, Carolina Beach or Kure Beach. And golfers, there are numerous courses in town or just a short ride away.

The O'Connor house has 4 bedrooms: Master with full bath, a large porch, a fireplace and king size bed. 1 Queen bedroom with a rear private porch overlooking the patio and gardens, 1 large queen bedroom with a fireplace and a bedroom with a twin bed and a twin trundle. The upstairs also has an additional bathroom.

The downstairs has a large living room with fireplace and a HD tv, a dining room with a fireplace and seating for 8, a large fully equipped kitchen with new ss appliances, dishwasher and breakfast area. There is a den off the kitchen with an HD tv and wireless internet service. There is also a powder room.

There is parking in the rear for 2 cars off a private driveway, a patio and rear covered porch with a gas grill. Our housekeeper and gardener make sure the house is spotless and the garden is always in bloom!!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The O'Connor House is one of the few rental homes truly in the downtown Historic District of Wilmington. Our town is a beautiful, small historic city and the Hollywood of the East. The hit series REVOLUTION is filmed in Wilmington as well as film hits: IRON MAN 3, WE'RE THE MILLERS, and THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND. It has so much charm from its' walking tours, horse drawn carriage rides and trolleys to its' magnificent mansions, historic district and wooden river walk. The river walk is over a mile in length and has many shops, restaurants, and parks along its' path. It is less than two blocks from the O'Connor House. At the Riverfront Park along the path there is the annual Downtown Sundown Concert Series beginning in May and running through September 2nd. Every Friday evening there is a concert with beer, wine, and food available. For a schedule of the concert line-up and event information see WilmingtonDowntown dot com.
