About the property

Downstairs apt., great location, easy walk to downtown in the historic district.

The historic L.W. Davis house (1897) is a beautiful Italianate-style duplex located on a cobblestone street in one of the finest residential blocks of Wilmington's downtown historic district. The house is just around the corner from the Riverwalk and downtown's nightlife. This downstairs apartment has its own private entrance with two lovely outdoor seating areas, including a side porch and private brick patio with goldfish pond where you can enjoy the passersby, including the horse-drawn carriage tours.

The LW Davis house has been converted into two apartments with this property occupying the first floor of the house. There are beautiful heart-pine hardwood floors throughout, high ceilings and ceiling fans. The fully equipped kitchen has a refrigerator, electric range and microwave, plenty of utensils and dishes, and a dishwasher. There is also a stacked washer and dryer. The light-filled rooms have large windows and an original brick fireplace in the living room. The bedroom has a very comfortable queen-size bed and a walk-in closet.

The outdoor spaces include a side porch area with seating for two overlooking a brick garden path. The path leads to private brick patio area with seating for three overlooking a goldfish pond that has a fountain during the summer months.

You are very close to everything downtown Wilmington has to offer. Around the corner is Front Street with its large collection of 19th-century mansions leading to the commercial district just a few blocks beyond. Downtown offers great restaurants, lively nightlife, historic homes and buildings, horse drawn carriage tours, and so much more. There are fantastic beaches and important historic sites within a 20 minute drive from the house, and beach chairs and towels are supplied during the summer season. Wilmington is also a convenient stop from points North on the way to Charleston. Myrtle Beach and its airport are just an hour south. Raleigh, and the Research Triangle area is only two hours away.

About Joey Toler

My name is Joey Toler. I've only lived in Wilmington since July of 2016, but have been making the trek back and forth between Washington, NC and here for 13 years. Formerly the executive director of the Beaufort County Arts Council, I now am the Sponsor/Development coordinator of the Cucalorus Film Foundation. It's a great gig, and such a pleasure NOT to be in charge. I hope you enjoy what you see here about the LW Davis apartment. I'm finally glad to have it online and ready for business, just in time for Spring!

Loved our mni getaway in Wilmington

  • 5 of 5

Apartment is well maintained and very clean within walking distance of shops and restaurants on the Riverwalk. Street parking always available but never moved my car once we arrived since we walked everywhere. Side porch a nice spot for a glass of wine and just relaxing.

Very quiet at night and felt quite safe walking around night or day. Hope to return, lots more to see, shop and visit. Owner Joey T a helpful host.
