Overview

About the property

Newly Renovated, Spacious Two Bedroom With Lots Of Light And Beautiful Decor

Located in the Historic Cummings-Taylor house on a cobblestone downtown street, this spacious 2 bedroom/1 bath condo has been completely renovated from top to bottom and beautifully furnished. The home is filled with light and has all of the charm of the historic home that it is but with all the amenities of a modern new home.

The home was built in 1889 and has been converted into three units with this property occupying the second floor of the house. There are hardwood floors throughout and beautiful moulding. The fully equipped kitchen has a french door refrigerator, new stainless steel range and microwave, open shelving and a dishwasher. There is also a full size washer and dryer. The home has huge windows and three original brick fireplaces with lovely mantles in the bedrooms and the living room. Both bedrooms have comfortable queen size beds. There is a back porch that is shady and private for a great spot to enjoy your morning coffee and newspaper.

The home is located in historic downtown Wilmington but is far enough from the lively downtown 'scene' to ensure you enjoy being in this great city while still being able to relax. Walk four blocks to catch the FREE downtown trolley that will take you anywhere in the historic area you would like to visit. The trolley runs every 20 minutes Downtown Wilmington has so much to offer - great shopping, delicious restaurants, lively nightlife, historic homes and buildings, horse drawn carriage tours, and so much more. There are fantastic beaches within a 20 minute drive from the house.

Make this home your home away from home while you explore this great city!

About Michelle

Our family lives in Charleston, SC. We love to travel and enjoy getting away to Wilmington. I grew up in the South and my husband grew up in the Northeast but came south as soon as he could. I graduated from Clemson University and he graduated from Norwich University in Vermont. We have a ten year old daughter and an eleven year old yellow lab - both of which enjoy travelling with us.

Michelle purchased this condo in 2006

Why Michelle chose Historic District

We fell in love with this home as soon as we saw it even though we had told ourselves we would never buy an historic home. For the first few years we owned it the home was rented to mostly students at nearby UNCW but we recently decided to completely renovate the house and once we saw the beautiful results we decided it would be a great homebase for people visiting the area.

What makes this condo unique

This home has so much charm and is in a great location close to everything downtown and an easy drive to some of the best beaches in North Carolina.

Great place, very convenient

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is the 2nd floor of this beautiful home. We were in Wilmington for the Azalea Festival and the place was clean, and very convenient to the river walk & downtown! We walked everywhere from the house, it was perfect. We loved all the little touches and decor in the apartment, it made it really feel very comfortable - like home. The only thing we didn't like was we were greeted by a couple of cats - one looked pretty rough! It was itching like crazy and looked kind of diseased.. Thankfully that was ONLY outside on the porch - there was ZERO evidence (smells or hair) of animals inside the apartment. But the cats looked very comfortable on the porch like they lived there. We are all allergic to cats and none of us had any reactions from staying in the apartment. Overall it was truly a fantastic place to stay and we would definitely stay here again!

Lovely place with great places to walk to

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time staying here with our two friends since Wilmington was a good half way distance. Cyrus and Michelle have a wonderful place with everything that we needed. We loved that for the whole weekend we did not have to get in a car once! Nothing but great things to say about the place. I would definitely recommend it to any of our friends that were visiting.

great location, easy access.

  • 5 of 5

We just love working with Michelle! Very accommodating, understanding and helpful. The two bedroom is very spacious and yet cozy. Safe location with easy, fun walk to downtown. Walk to the river for a special sunset!! Everything you need for a great stay is in the apartment. We enjoyed a family Thanksgiving with family in the two bedroom apartment and family in the 3rd floor one bedroom apartment!!
