The captivatingly charming Empie-Poisson house has looked out over historic downtown Wilmington since 1913. With irreplaceable details and beauty tucked into every corner, prepare to be romanced. Incredible care has been taken to preserve original details while modernizing conveniences. Your front door is just three blocks to the Cape Fear River and public boat launch, a few more to the River Walk, restaurants and Wilmington's brand new amphitheater. With a front porch made for rocking chairs and warm summer breezes expect friends and neighbors stopping by. Inside, sunshine filters through the large windows onto the original heart pine hardwood floors. Elegant glass door knobs open into the bathroom, whose chandelier and tiling add a touch of luxury. The home was fully restored by local historic home renovation expert Doug Witt who put thoughtful consideration into laying out a kitchen that allows ample counter space while providing all the essentials. The oven is also a broiler + microwave! The sink is fully outfitted with a reverse osmosis system. Outdoor living can be scarce downtown but not at 311 Castle Street. Pull back the lace curtains and open the french doors of the bedroom to let the fresh air in. The expansive covered back porch allows for year-round enjoyment. The home has been used as a private residence and currently as a busy AirBnB. It can be sold mostly furnished to anyone looking to invest in a vacation rental. The HVAC and gas pack are a few months old and a termite bond is in place. Before you go...take one last look at the metal decorative gate out front. Look closer. Hidden in the winding pieces you will find the story of Alice and Wonderland. Tell me, how often do you find a house with this much character!
