Here is your chance to own a piece of living history. Welcome to the Latimer Waddell House in historic downtown Wilmington. This graceful beauty sits only a few blocks from all the Port City has to offer, only a quick jaunt down to the Cape Fear River and all the quaint restaurants and shops. This all brick home has been lovingly restored from top to bottom. With three roomy bedrooms and three full baths, an office, large basement with workshop, this home has all the charms of an old home but recently updated. Sit on the fenced-in front porch and watch the city buzz by. The sun-filled living and dining rooms have full-sized pocket doors for an open floor plan or a more cozy setting, and the giant eat-in kitchen has been completely renovated, with stunning fantasy brown marble counters, marble subway tile backsplash, double wall ovens, spacious single-bowl sink, and versatile island; you can cook for a crowd. The French door opens on to the back deck, which perches over the tree-filled garden, a perfect, private getaway, just you and the birds. Take the steps down to the sunken garden, a magical space with a brick fountain, laden with water hyacinths, tucked under the magnolia and fig trees. Herringbone brick pathways lead you around the property.
Back inside, take the sweeping staircase up to the second floor, where you can plan your home office. The front bedroom has built-in bookcases, whether you want to use it as a library or bedroom, or two room suite, as if can open to the second bedroom. The laundry room is upstairs with the bedrooms, located in the guest bathroom. The owners suite is at the back of the house, ringed with windows looking over the garden. Make sure you don't miss the luxurious bathroom, complete with double sinks, plenty of storage, the cast iron claw foot tub, newly refinished for that relaxing soak, and the walk in spa shower, lined with travertine.
The basement lit by several windows can be accessed from inside the house or from outside.
