Attention to individual style in a historic home.
This 1853, 8,500-square-foot mansion has had a rough history. For years it stood idle from fire and water damage. Then a complete refurbishment stripped it to its infrastructure and resurrected its original ambiance while outfitting it with modern conveniences. It sits on a pretty tree-lined street, and from the enclosed cupola on the top of the house you can see downtown Wilmington and the USS North Carolina. The eight corner rooms on the second and third levels have wood floors, decorative fireplaces and baths with marble floors and vanity tops. Accommodations are done up with beautiful window treatments, antique furniture and art. As well, they have cable TV, VCRs, phones and modem outlets. The common areas include a formal living room, piano room, breakfast room and dining room. Gourmet breakfast is served daily.
