Every home in the historic neighborhood of Carolina Place seems to have a story to tell . This early 1900s home is no exception--it's one of two patent stone construction homes built side by side, to mirror each other by twin brothers. A hallmark design of this era of home is the covered front porch, intended for relaxing and socializing with the neighbors as they walk by. This 3 or 4 block area of Wrightsville Avenue has the warm, sense of community you're looking for that takes you back to a simpler time. For a house that has 2 bedrooms, and 2.5 bathrooms, the soaring ceilings give it the feel of a larger home, with a floorplan that would easily allow for the addition of a third bedroom. The two masonry fireplaces (one working/new gas logs; and the second is a beautiful architectural feature) is just one of the features of the original design that remain in this unique home, but updates over the years abound; including raised ceilings, decorative patterned ceiling tiles, crown moldings, updated kitchen with Frigidaire Gallery Series stainless appliances including gas oven, refinished original hardwood floors, ceramic tile, updated bathrooms, pull-down stair access to the attic for additional storage, and more. A spacious backyard with privacy fence, and the rare convenience of off-street parking for up to three cars adds to the many amenities of this home. The real hidden gem of this property: A stunning 15'x19' detached outbuilding that can be used as a studio, workshop, or even better, a rental! This beautifully constructed building of patent stone and slate has newer vinyl windows, a new roof in 2018, is drywall finished with wainscoting touches, has an electric fireplace wired for insert, has its own dedicated electrical panel, includes a built-in sleeping loft, and is ready to be finished off for additional rental income! The seller is entertaining all offers for this opportunity to own this true piece of Wilmington history.
