Wilmington cottage description

This restored home is absolutely charming, with granite counter tops, high-end cabinets, custom tile work, breathtaking refinished hardwood floors, an expansive rocking chair front porch, and large fenced back yard. Off-street parking and a large shed in the back for additional storage.

The front porch has two rocking chairs flanking a small table, and a wrought-iron bistro set for enjoying the streetscape with your morning coffee.

The livingroom has a fireplace, queen-size sofa sleeper with high-quality mattress, loveseat, and 32-inch flat-screen television with DVD player and Roku streaming media. The dining room features a vintage pedestal dining table, eight chairs, and a buffet. The kitchen has a full-size, side-by-side refrigerator with through-the-door ice and water, microwave, smooth-top range, and dishwasher, and is fully equipped with coffee maker, blender, toaster, cookware, and dinnerware. The laundry room has a full-size front-load washer and dryer.

The master bedroom features a romantic four-post queen bed with pillow-top mattress, vintage lingerie chest, vintage nightstand, and en-suite bath, plus a separate exit to the fenced backyard. The middle bedroom features a pillow-top queen bed, and laminate-top maple dresser with mirror, chest, and nightstand. The front bedroom has its own exit to the driveway, along with a daybed with a pop-up trundle that can serve as a single bed, a pair of twins, or a king.

Car: Recommended

Tree-lined streets filled with huge oaks and magnolias. Sidewalks throughout neighborhood. Great neighbors who have been here many, many generations. Charming homes that take you back to yesteryear. A short walk to Wallace Park. Major revitalization due to the popularity of the area 1.5 miles to downtown, and 7.5 miles to Wrightsville Beach. Centrally located to lots of restaurants and Independence Mall. Located in the desirable, historic Ardmore neighborhood.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I spent most of my life in a military family, so I've lived in a lot of places, and I've traveled extensively. I love to explore new places with all the comforts of home close at hand.

Why the Owner Chose Wilmington:
After several trips to the beach, we zeroed in on Wilmington because of the history, the proximity to everything, and the hospitality of the people.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This is a historic home with all the charm that brings: a rocking chair front porch, wood floors, bead board wainscoting and chair rails. But it's also a modern home with all the bells and whistles: granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, and high-speed internet.
