Overview

About the property

four bedroom, two bath, single family residence which sleeps 8-10 persons

This house, built in 1920, has been substantially renovated. It consists of four bedrooms, a dining room, a large family area, two bathrooms, and a full kitchen. The living space consists of over 2000 square feet. The ceilings are 10 foot, which makes the property seem even larger. The property has a front porch, a side enclosed porch with an adjacent wood deck, and a small deck at the rear of the building which facilitates the rear entrance. If this property is unavailable or you want something smaller check out our other property: vrbo 442643.

The area has a history of railroads, civil rights, artists, television and filmmakers. The property has all of the benefits of downtown Wilmington, being in walking distance of all popular attractions, while residing in a neighborhood that is slightly removed from the intense nightlife, crowd and noise. The property is surrounded by attractive, newly built, mixed use condominuims, but differs from most neighboring residences in that it retains the charm of the 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s. Its proximity to the Brooklyn Arts Center, St Thomas Preservation Hall and Grace United Methodist Church, popular wedding venues, makes the property particularly attractive for wedding parties. The property is large and is able to sleep more persons than most vacation rentals, making it a less expensive option for large parties who otherwise would occupy several hotel rooms.

Has all of the relaxing feel of living in an earlier era -- perhaps the 1920s -- but with our modern conveniences, including a dishwasher and granite kitchen counter tops. The front porch has a swing which allows one to drink in the activity of N 4th Street. The rooms are open and spacious -- conducive to fellowship. Nearby neighborhood establishments, such as Folks, a coffee shop, and the Goat and Compass, a small neighborhood pub, quickly make one feel a part of the neighborhood.

About Anthony Register

We love the North 4th Street area and its history. We love the area so much that we purchased the Strauss Building located a 701 North 4th Street in 2005, directly across the street from 624 North 4th Street, which we use as a law office. We also own and rent a residential two bedroom, two bath condominium unit on the second floor of the Strauss Building located at 703B North 4th Street, which can be found at vrbo 442643. We are proud of North 4th Street and welcome the opportunity to showcase the area to vacation travelers.

From 1920 -- 1960, the location was an important economic center for Wilmington, largely due to its proximity to the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad, which operated in Wilmington from 1840 -- 1959. Following the railroad's departure, the area suffered a downturn in economic fortunes from 1960 -- 1980. The area was the scene of intense racial riots in 1972 and was the home of "the Wilmington 10" -- a group of men who sought to bring attention to racial inequality. During the 1980s and 1990s the area began to attract artists and filmmakers. Scenes from "The Crow", "Blue Velvet", "Firestarter" and "King Kong" were filmed nearby. In recent years, North 4th Street and nearby buildings have seen frequent filming for television and movies – including "Sleepy Hollow", "Matlock", "Under the Dome", "Revolution", "Tammy", "Dawson's Creek", "Iron Man III" and "One Tree Hill".”

The completion of Martin Luther King Parkway, which connects downtown Wilmington to Interstate 40, around 2001 has made the location desirable for business and residential interests due to its proximity to the terminus of the Parkway. From 2002 through 2008 the property experienced an explosion in upscale residential condominium construction. The area has a large residential community.

The location (624 North 4th Street) is convenient to everything downtown Wilmington has to offer: Thalian Hall, The Brooklyn Arts Center, casual to fine dining, hip coffee houses, art galleries, excellent county library, horse drawn carriage rides, Shops of Old Wilmington or the Cotton Exchange, historic tours, Screen Gems Studio tours, Ghosts of Wilmington Tour, haunted pub crawls, Wilmington’s Farmer’s Market (April – December), the Azalea Festival (April), Riverfest (October) and the NC Battleship. PPD, Cape Fear Community College and the Wilmington Convention Center are within easy walking distance. You can experience the night life, then walk a couple of blocks back to the property and spend a safe and quiet evening in your beautifully furnished home. If you have a car, there is an abundance of free on-street parking or there is free parking provided in a private driveway which serves the residence. No need to pay for parking.

Around Town: The Brooklyn Arts Center, where a variety of concerts and performances take place year round, and a popular place for weddings, is just down the street, less than 1/4 mile. Modern dancers, chamber orchestras, concert pianists, singers, comedians, theater companies, jazz ensembles, and many other concerts are featured at the Brooklyn Arts Center. The Brooklyn Arts Center at St. Andrews is the most stunning and spectacular small-market concert venue in the Southeast.” After a show stop by the Goat and Compass Tavern for a nightcap.

Located one-half mile south of the home is Thalian Hall. The 1858 Thalian Hall is one of the most significant theatres in the United States and has been in almost continuous use since it first opened. The theatre has been under the management of the Thalian Hall Center for the Performing Arts, Inc. since 1963. Last year there were over 250 shows, events and films for a total of 495 performances, and these programs attracted audiences totaling more than 85,000 people. The events ranged from music to ballet and theatre, from pop, jazz, folk and country music to the finest in domestic, independent and foreign films.

One small block away from the residence is the Cape Fear Community College Fine Arts Center. Opening in 2015, it will be the largest auditorium in southeastern North Carolina.

A five minute drive across the Cape Fear River is the USS NORTH CAROLINA. Moored in quiet dignity and majesty the Battleship NORTH CAROLINA, across the river from downtown Wilmington, beckons visitors to walk her decks. Envision the daily life and fierce combat her crew faced in the Pacific Theatre during World War II.Step back in time and let history come alive through the crews’ stories. Discover and build your personal connection by steering the ship, starting her engines or even firing the guns.

Area beaches are a short drive away: Wrightsville Beach (15 minutes), Carolina Beach (30 minutes), or Kure Beach (45 minutes).

The house was wonderful, out of the crowds but close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

Our son and his groomsmen stayed here for his wedding weekend (parents stayed in your other property across the street) They loved the Out of the Box bistro next door and enjoyed The Goat and Compass pub 3 doors down all 3 nights of their stay.

This home is older but is updated, immaculate and cozy. It's a short walk to a bunch of great restaurants, and attractions. We are hoping to rent it again when we return. Thank you so much.

Perfect girls weekend

  • 5 of 5

I was blown away by this house. So beautiful and had that Wilmington charm that brought me back to the town in the first place. 9 girls stayed for a girls weekend and had the best time. Everything was very convenient and there was plenty of space for our size. Would definitely come again and I strongly recommend to others!

Just Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome place to stay. Very well equipped with everything needed for a great vacation. Was able to walk to a lot of places. Had a great family vacation with kids (including a toddler) and house was perfect and plenty of room for a family of 10. Loved having morning coffee on the patio! The owners were very accommodating. Would recommend to anyone wanting an adorable, old fashioned, historic cottage to rent.

Perfect for a girls weekend

  • 5 of 5

Perfect stay for our group. I booked this property for a group of girls (7 total) for a weekend stay in Wilmington. The house was amazing--- the pictures do not do it justice. Tall ceilings and large rooms made it so we never felt like we were on top of each other. It was a drive to the beach, but we really enjoyed the location otherwise. We were did not have any residential neighbors, but we had a really cute coffee and wine shop right next door. There was enough parking in the back of the home for our three cars (plus some). We were walking distance (or a short uber ride away) to all of the hot spots- eateries and bars- downtown. The beds were comfortable, very nicely decorated and with all that was provided, we really didn't need to bring much more than toiletries and our clothes. The only bit of advice I would give to others is all of the bathrooms are located off of a bedroom. It was fine for our group. All and all perfect for a friend getaway.
