Originally built as a single family home in 1854, this completely renovated Italianate Mansion has been operating as a successful 4 Diamond rated Bed and Breakfast since 1997. Offering 8,200 sq. ft., this iconic Historic House is without equal. Located on what is arguably the best residential area in the Historic District, this property offers 8 large and luxuriously decorated guest suites - each with an attached full bath. The main floor impresses you with a 12 X 40 entrance hall, a light filled formal living room with 10.5 ft windows, double width baseboards, and masterfully crafted trim work. There is also a 19 x 19 dining room, an inviting reception area, an eat in Butler's pantry and a 3 season porch. The rear double doors lead to a raised slate patio with charming garden views. The 3 additional verandas all invite you to sit awhile, enjoy the tree lined streets and the sights and sounds of Historic Wilmington. And finally there is a 2 bedroom downstairs apartment that is accessible from the main foyer but also has a separate street entrance and would make an excellent in law suite or rental. For an extra treat take the spiral staircase from the 3rd floor to the cupola......from there you have a 360 degree view of Wilmington from one of the highest lots in the area! Please see attached features list as there are too many to mention here. This incredible property could convey as an operating Bed and Breakfast or could easily be converted once again to a Single Family Home... and did I mention that you are 2 blocks from the Cape Fear River and 4 blocks from the Restaurants, Music Venues and Galleries of Downtown Wilmington!
