Overview

About the property

Newly Renovated, Spacious Two Bedroom With Lots Of Light And Beautiful Decor

Located in the Historic Cummings-Taylor house on a cobblestone downtown street, this spacious 2 bedroom/1 bath condo has been completely renovated from top to bottom and beautifully furnished. The home is filled with light and has all of the charm of the historic home that it is but with all the amenities of a modern new home.

The home was built in 1889 and has been converted into three units with this property occupying the second floor of the house. There are hardwood floors throughout and beautiful moulding. The fully equipped kitchen has a french door refrigerator, new stainless steel range and microwave, open shelving and a dishwasher. There is also a full size washer and dryer. The home has huge windows and three original brick fireplaces with lovely mantles in the bedrooms and the living room. Both bedrooms have comfortable queen size beds. There is a back porch that is shady and private for a great spot to enjoy your morning coffee and newspaper.

The home is located in historic downtown Wilmington but is far enough from the lively downtown 'scene' to ensure you enjoy being in this great city while still being able to relax. Walk four blocks to catch the FREE downtown trolley that will take you anywhere in the historic area you would like to visit. The trolley runs every 20 minutes Downtown Wilmington has so much to offer - great shopping, delicious restaurants, lively nightlife, historic homes and buildings, horse drawn carriage tours, and so much more. There are fantastic beaches within a 20 minute drive from the house.

Make this home your home away from home while you explore this great city!

About Michelle

Our family lives in Charleston, SC. We love to travel and enjoy getting away to Wilmington. I grew up in the South and my husband grew up in the Northeast but came south as soon as he could. I graduated from Clemson University and he graduated from Norwich University in Vermont. We have a ten year old daughter and an eleven year old yellow lab - both of which enjoy travelling with us.

Michelle purchased this condo in 2006

Why Michelle chose Wilmington

We fell in love with this home as soon as we saw it even though we had told ourselves we would never buy an historic home. For the first few years we owned it the home was rented to mostly students at nearby UNCW but we recently decided to completely renovate the house and once we saw the beautiful results we decided it would be a great homebase for people visiting the area.

What makes this condo unique

This home has so much charm and is in a great location close to everything downtown and an easy drive to some of the best beaches in North Carolina.

Charming house, great location!

  • 5 of 5

I grew up in this town and can honestly say this is a wonderful property and location. I rented Michelle's property to have a place to get ready for my wedding. It was so lovely! We loved the layout. The rooms were spacious and not right on top of each other. We had plenty of room for the girls to get ready and really great natural lighting for make-up. The bathroom and kitchen are updated, but still have a great cottage chic feel. The bathroom was my favorite part about this place! The kitchen was stocked with plenty of dishes. The fridge and freezer were plenty big. The linens were clean and the beds were comfortable. Michelle had great communication from booking all the way until after we checked out. The cottage was walking distance to bars and restaurants, or a $4 uber ride. I liked that it was far enough off the main drag to get peace and quiet. We never had a problem finding on street parking right in front of the property. Thanks for a wonderful experience! We will be back!

Charming home

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this rental for our girl's weekend. Perfect distance to downtown to get a little exercise but too close too drive :) The home has all the charm you'd hope to find in an older southern home. We had everything we needed!

Very comfortable apartment in a historic house downtown.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at this lovely home. The apartment is comfortable, clean, and convenient to all the downtown attractions. Wrightsville beach is a short 15 minute drive. We hope to return soon!

A beautiful, spacious apartment with lots of character and historic charm

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying here and we have loved our experience every time! The owner is extremely friendly and we had no problem reaching her if needed. The place is close to all the restaurants and shops of downtown. It has great sized bedrooms along with a spacious kitchen and living room. It also has a cute back porch. I would definitely stay here again!
