116 N Front Street Unit 301

What an amazing opportunity to own a piece of history. Welcome to the George R French & Sons Building circa 1873. Wilmington’s first iron front steel frame- built building in the heart of Historic Downtown Wilmington.

This building has, in most recent years, undergone a detailed renovation from the exterior to the three homeowner units within the building. A private code accessed elevator opens directly to your home with ease. Your third-floor loft was recently designed and updated to include custom built-ins, beautiful original heart of pine hardwood floors, custom recessed lighting and fixtures, new solid doors and hardware throughout, tile baths with upgraded lighting and appointments. Your primary bathroom is a spa experience with large open shower and separate soaking tub, double vanity, and private water closet. Both bedrooms boast walk in closets, tall ceilings, and custom HVAC duct work to maximize view and architecture of the space. Your kitchen is a gourmet delight boasting granite countertops, tile backsplash, upgraded cabinetry and hardware, farm style sink, Wolf Induction Range, eat in bar and many other features such as high-end appliances, and walk in pantry. Custom draperies designed with hidden tracks to boast the views you take from the breathtaking windows across to the Cape Fear River and Battleship.

There is first floor storage as well as a shared basement space for the unit owners that is currently used as a wine cellar. Access to your home is via a front stairwell off Front Street or private gated alley access and exterior entertaining space with coded rear door to elevator lobby. For downtown living it does not get any better than this Historic Charm with modern appointments. The brick exterior of this building was completely re-pointed in 2019.
