Why Sean Dougherty chose Riverfront

From the first day I saw this property I knew it was special. It wasn't for sale so I contact the owners and after a little negotiating they sold it to me. I love its location to everything downtown and the beaches. It was built around 1910 but I have tried to retain some of its original charm when I did the renovations.

What makes this house unique

Stay right downtown with locals and really get a feel for Wilmington and its Southern charm.

Wonderful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful, cozy house. Very clean and cute. We loved our stay. It is ‘within walking distance’ of downtown if you are a hearty walker. We are, but opted to drive and Uber some as well as waking. Great place. We’ll be back!

Great cottage near Downtown Wilmington

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with 2 adult children for a UNCW event. We had a moment of hesitation when we drove up because neighboring properties were quite shabby... however, the neighborhood seems to be undergoing a renaissance with lots of improvements going on. Once we walked in the cottage all fears were calmed. Three nice-sized bedrooms accommodated us nicely. Kitchen/living room was great place to hang out together. Bright, well decorated space. Walked to bakery and bars, and downtown for dinner. Overall fun stay. Thanks Sean!

Very cute house. Very clean. Very welcoming. Quiet neighborhood. Close to everything. Great snacks!

  • 4 of 5

My only improvement feedback is that the bathtub had no nonstop strips/no bathmat. My sister has balance problem and showering was a challenge. Also would recommend pull down shade for back door so folks in houses behind can't see straight into the house.
