This charming bungalow cottage home was built in 1926 and is located in the desirable neighborhood of Carolina Place in Downtown Wilmington on Wrightsville Avenue. This location allows you to stay in a historic residential neighborhood with its sidewalks, front porches and mix of older and thoughtfully restored homes.
Within walking distance is the White Front Breakfast House, Port City Java, Burnt Mill Creek Tavern, and a lush neighborhood park. You are approximately one mile (a $5 or so Uber ride) from Front and Market Streets and the Cape Fear River where downtown Wilmington restaurants and shopping await AND only 7 miles away (approx. 12 minutes) from beautiful Wrightsville Beach.
Interesting tidbit.....located just two doors down is the home featured on the TV show One Tree Hill where the character played by Chad Michael Murray lived!!
This 2 bedroom - 2 full bath home features original hardwood floors throughout, 9-foot ceilings with ceiling fans in both bedrooms and living room as well as convenient off-street parking for up to two cars....which is VERY rare for the Downtown area. The front porch with Southern swing, ceiling fan and rocking chairs is a perfect spot for reading a book or chatting with neighbors. The back porch provides a more intimate spot for morning coffee or an evening cocktail. The master bedroom features a queen bed with an en-suite bathroom containing a claw foot tub/shower and a generous walk-in closet. The second bedroom affords a beautiful antique full-sized bed. There is no need to bring or rent linens or towels because plush bath towels and 300-count cotton sheets are provided.
This home is a perfect blend of antiques and modern eclecticism. The spacious living room has ample seating for all guests with an HD Smart TV with local antenna, Roku and free Wi-Fi. The dining room has a stunning chandelier, a fancy bar cart, and comfortable seating for 4. If you wish, feel free to use the table linens in the tiger-oak buffet to prepare for that special meal. The kitchen includes a dishwasher, double-sided refrigerator with ice maker, Keurig coffee pot, toaster, microwave, and is stocked with items you will need should you wish to cook during your getaway. If needed, there is a HE full-size LG washer and dryer.
Pets considered - We consider our pets as family and wouldn’t dream of traveling without them. This home was furnished with pets in mind from the fenced-in front yard that allows your fur-friend to run and play to the minimal carpeting throughout the home, down to the plush leather living room furnishings. There is even a portable pet gate available for your use if needed. Note: Please provide a sheet or blanket if your pet will cuddle up with you either on the leather sofa or on the bed.
Whether you are visiting Wilmington for beaching, golfing, shopping, antiquing, exploring, fishing, biking or just to get away from the daily grind....this home is the perfect location for your Wilmington stay! We hope you will love our home as much as we do!!!!!!
