Wilmington condo description

The Holiday Season is Wonderful in Wilmington! Enjoy 'The Candlelight Tour' ... riding on 'The Reindeer Trolley' ... and more! (Contact me for a free 2014 Holiday Brochure). Then return to The Woodbury-Hoggard House ... festively decorated for a real Old Fashioned Christmas.

This elegant condo is located in the historically significant Woodbury-Hoggard House in downtown Wilmington ... situated high on the corner of 5th Ave. & Orange Street ... just 6 blocks from the Cape Fear River (America's #1 River Front!!!) ... close enough for strolling ... down to the RiverWalk to enjoy the fabulous sunsets ... to Thalian Hall for live performances ... to wine bars and pubs ... and, of course, to enjoy a magnificent meal at one of Downtown Wilmington's excellent restaurants! A short walk home to your accommodations in one of Wilmington's finest mansions transports you back in time ... and to a quiet, restful sleep.

When (and if) you are ready to get back in your car (parked in its very own space in the private driveway), take a 15 minute drive to the beautiful blue water at Wrightsville Beach ... drive just a bit further to Carolina Beach (great seafood!) ... or to historic Fort Fisher (Civil War Museum) ... and take the scenic ferry ride over to Southport and the Brunswick Beaches.

If you enjoy films, TV, and movie-star watching ... you have found the epicenter! Wilmington is internationally known as 'Hollywood East' ... home to the largest film studio outside of California. Since Hollywood first called in 1983, the Wilmington area has logged more than 400 film-related credits ... and the filming continues (Iron Man ... Sleepy Hollow ...) Filmmakers favor the mild climate, island beaches, varied landscapes and architecture, and historic river district. On the streets along the Cape Fear River, different tours depart by land and water, and virtually all mention sites from the hundreds of movies, TV series and other projects shot here. Experience movie-magic on a guided walking tour. Join one of Hollywood East’s most entertaining and self-important directors ( : on a name dropping, movie and TV extravaganza through one of America’s largest living film sets; Wilmington, North Carolina! You will see real locations for some of Hollywood East's biggest movies and TV Shows.This 90 minute fun-filled walking tour will have you laughing and crying.

After a full day of star-gazing ... windsurfing ... antiquing ... fine dining ... whatever you choose, you will love returning to this elegant one bedroom, one bath condo, furnished with antiques ... and featuring all the modern conveniences. The sofa in the living area converts to a queen sleep ... luxurious linens for both beds (and the bathroom) are included in your rental. Cleaning fees are also included. The kitchen is small, but efficient ... the table in the living area seats four. 14-foot ceilings are adorned with original plaster ... and the space is filled with original art. There is an office space with a printer and desk (free long distance calls) ... high speed internet service ... a large, new HD TV featuring expanded cable service ... a second TV in the bedroom ... a minibar with an additional refrigerator ... and free use of the washer and dryer.

The Woodbury-Hoggard House porch has been (and continues to be) home to much Southern Hospitality ... rocking chairs ... porch swing ... mint juleps ... you get the picture ( : Hope to see Ya'll round here soon!

A short walk home to your accommodations in one of Wilmington's finest mansions transports you back in time ... and to a quiet, restful sleep.

                  The Woodbury-Hoggard House was built in 1854 by Phineus Woodbury, a Union General who fell in love with, and married, a Southern Belle (before the Civil War!). It is featured on the Historic Wilmington Horse-Drawn Carriage Tours ... so stand on the porch and wave as the folks ride past ( :

                  What A Great Place! Verrazzano sailed up the Cape Fear River in 1524 ... and when he returned to Europe, he wrote that ours was the most beautiful area he had ever seen ... this was the first written description of 'the New World'. Whether watching the sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean ... or relaxing as it sets over the Cape Fear River ... what a Beautiful Place! The history, geography, climate, arts, and laid-back vibe of the folks who live here make Wilmington a Wonderful Town.
