Year Purchased: 1996
About: My husband and I have lived in historic downtown Wilmington since 1987. Wilmington has been a wonderful home for us, our five children, our two dogs. and two cats. We enjoy boating on the Cape Fear River and in the waterway and sound, we bike downtown and meet friends at the many outdoor concerts and festivals, and we spend time surfing and sunning at the beach. I hope that our guests who stay in our downtown 'get-away' will learn to love our area as much as we do!
Why Historic District, Wilmington, NC, USA:
Our first home was just a couple of blocks from this house. The neighbors are wonderful and the sights and sounds are refreshing. I love being able to stroll downtown and enjoy the Cape Fear Riverwalk after dinner. The festivals, the antique stores, the restaurants, and the frequent fireworks displays over the river always provide entertainment for our family and guests. There is usually a choice of live music venues and an excellent selection of local theater productions to choose from as well. We are glad to be able to share our little part of the world with others!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This lovely home is close to restaurants, shops, waterfront, museums, historic homes, etc. The Castle Street antique district is right around the corner, the public boat ramp is at the foot of Castle Street, the Wilmington Children's Museum is 5 blocks away. The many downtown restaurants and bars provide an exciting nightlife! The periodic fireworks displays over the river and the downtown festivals and parades are totally worthwhile. The Fourth Friday Artwalk is something to look forward to year round. The UNCW campus is only 5 miles away and it is just a short drive to Wrightsville Beach or to Pleasure Island, which includes Carolina Beach, Kure Beach, the site of the battle of Ft. Fisher, and the North Carolina Aquarium. It is especially nice to be downtown for the North Carolina Azalea Festival festivities in the spring as well as for Riverfest in the fall. Most importantly, the view of the setting sun over the Cape Fear River from the front porch is priceless.
