Wilmington condo description

This beautiful 1BR condo is located in the Ahrens Building circa 1907. It's in the heart of Historic Downtown Wilmington in a Neo-classical Revival style building.This is your perfect location a 1/2 block away from the river. You are in walking distance to pubs, cafes, restaurants, spas, art galleries, shopping and the beautiful Riverwalk. 1/2 block away is also the Level 5 Building that houses the Level 5 Rooftop bar & City Stage Theater. I recommend taking in the gorgeous sunsets while sipping on a glass of wine at the most scenic location in Wilmington! Hands down, you will enjoy the best view and venue in the region. If you enjoy local breweries, also a 1/2 block away is our neighbor The Front Street Brewery. Excellent food, local brews and service! If you would like something more upscale, dine at Circa 1922 with elegant cherry wood furnishings and the largest tapas and wine menu in town. Directly across the street you can enjoy the Shuckin Shack with unlimited seafood items including buckets of oysters and shrimp! Whether you are coming for business or pleasure, we have the perfect condo for all your needs. While walking around our historic town, you are sure to see our crews filming famous movies, mini series and commercials. You never know when you will run into stars who are continually filming in our Historic downtown locations. You can take a romantic carriage ride, eat at our many waterfront restaurants, take a ghost pub crawl tour, rent a Segway, or simply stroll the streets and enjoy the incredible atmosphere. 1 block away on the water is the Henrietta III Cruise Boat that you can enjoy scenic dinner cruises, Mystery Dinners or private parties. If you are coming to Wilmington to enjoy dinner, theater, shopping, pubs and relaxing this elegant condo is the perfect fit. If you are coming to Wilmington to work, this is the perfect location to settle into and be close to everything downtown has to offer and close to work.

The renovated condo boasts high ceilings with beams, exposed brick through out, original tall windows with gorgeous wood shutters, original hardwood floors, bathroom with custom tile and fixtures. If you want cozy and elegant, this is your condo!

We look forward to having you stay with us on your next visit to Historic Downtown Wilmington!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2013

                  About the owner: Upon moving to North Carolina in 1989, I knew I found what I will always call 'Home'. I fell in love with NC and Wilmington quickly became my favorite town to visit. I relocated to Wilmington 7 years ago and work in the tourism industry. My passion is to promote tourism and that led me to purchase a couple downtown Wilmington condos so I can share my passion with visitors who choose to stay with us. On my free time, I enjoy fishing, running, going to the beach and of course enjoying our lovely downtown Historic District. I love calling Wilmington my home and want to share what Wilmington has to offer with you!

                  Why the Owner Chose Wilmington:
                  I purchased this condo and another condo a block away because I truly fell in love with Wilmington. Both condos I have are in Historic Buildings which was a huge draw for me. It has everything a large town has but with that small cozy town feeling. I LOVE being here, eating at our water front restaurants, our shops, watching movies being filmed and our lively night life. This is a close knit community and we all take care of each other. I feel so lucky to be a part of the vibrant and beautiful downtown scene.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  I fell in love with this condo because it's in the heart of downtown Historic Wilmington, in the Historic Ahrens Building and has original features through out the interior including the hardwoods, window and exposed brick. It's an elegant and cozy getaway. Everything you can possibly want to do downtown, is all right out your front door literally. It's so convenient and I fell in love with the condo immediately.
