About the property

Unique Historic "Condo" in the Heart of the Mansion District

Absolutely the best location in downtown Wilmington on the 400 block of Front St. The 100s of reviews online tell the story of the incredible Mansion District location, walk to everything location, unique furnishings, occasionally haunted, comfortable, parking, the porches, etc!

There is no better location. The 400 block of Front is just 2 blocks to the commercial district (restaurants and pubs) but it is also in the heart and soul of our Mansion District. Everything you will need is there and the porch, the carriages that go by, the veranda, the neighbors, the architecture - It really is an incredible place to stay and settle in.

Set among 5000 sq ft homes, the Charity Prescott House is a unique collection of 5 separate residences built into one of the oldest homes in the City. Unit D has a king bed, alcove office, granite kitchen, access to the Veranda, and non working fireplace.

We hope you enjoy your stay in the Port City.

Brought to you by SuitesonFront and Pam and Dave - we have been hosting visitors in the Port City for 20 years and offer 100s of reviews, etc. We hope to see you on the porch!

About David Billitto

Suites on Front began nearly 20 years ago on Front Street renting out a home to Visitors and the Film Industry. While technology has caught up, we have added homes in Asheville, Lake Lure, Kure Beach, Wrightsville Beach, Bald Head Island, Hendersonville and expanded downtown in Wilmington (our heart and soul).

Our stated goal is to make your stay the best experience possible while adding to our community and neighborhood.

We hope you find our unique residences to be a wonderful jumping off point for all of NC!

David Billitto purchased this apartment in 2008

Why David Billitto chose Historic District

One of the oldest homes in the District, we could no longer watch as it deteriorated and purchased Charity Prescott House (AKA Nacho Mama's). We turned the individual apartments into unique true condo residences that carry with it downtown's history.

Many return and there is no bigger compliment to the home, location and the community when you do!

What makes this apartment unique

Wonderful place for a romantic getaway!

We could not have asked for an easier check-in/check-out! The owners were so accommodating and surprised us with a basket of goodies. We can’t wait to return...the next time with our pup and for a longer stay. The bed and pillows were like heaven!

Thank you for sharing your home with us’

Great little place in great location!. Very convenient to down town. Owners were very accommodating. There was a bottle of wine and some snacks were a welcome surprise when we arrived. Comfortable king size bed. We will definitely stay here again when we return. Thanks Dave for your hospitality!

Really Nice Place - Art was very cool - porch/veranda/wine

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to drop the owners a quick message and let you know that you can not go wrong with this property. The location is as good as it gets, the other guests were frequent greeters on the porch, the parking, the neighbors.

Just a great vacation

Incredible location with parking. You will be only two blocks from everything downtown but on a block framed by large pre 1900 Mansions. Welcome to Front Street. We ask that you enjoy Wilmington, support our local businesses and that you blend seamlessly into the residential and quiet area while enjoying the vibrancy of downtown only a few blocks away.

Hope to see you on the Porch at the Charity Prescott House at 415 S Front
