The central HVAC unit is serviced annually and in good working condition.An antique brick central fireplace fitted with working gas logs captures you upon entry and you can move easily from the open living and dining rooms into the cozy kitchen (which features glass-front cabinets, all stainless steel appliances, and a new Kitchenaid dishwasher (2018). The W/D is tucked away under the staircase to avoid stealing from the home's ambiance. Upstairs has 3 additional bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, one with a clawfoot tub and the other a walk-in shower.

A large separate outbuilding is more mini-garage than storage shed, with a paved floor and plenty of room for all of your tools, bikes and storage bins. Plus, you're a block from the ''official'' National Historic District, giving you more flexibility as updates, decorations, and structural changes do not have to comply with stringent and sometimes prohibitive historic regulations.Current owner holds STR permit allowing for legal Airbnb'Like we said: A little slice of Heaven in Downtown that won't last long!!

Jennifer is a native Texan and while a piece of her heart will always remain in Texas the southern coastal charm of Wilmington captivated her in 1995 when she moved and decided to grow roots here. Her background prior to Real Estate was in competitive markets ranging from Fortune 500 companies, dotcom’s, Non-Profit and franchises of which gave her a vast amount of diversity and experience in negotiations while taking care of her clients. The first business she started was an event planning company which was a natural passion and ability of hers and those skills also help in her Real Estate career. She joined Coastal Select Properties because of the strong principles the company has been built on. When she is not selling Real Estate, you will find her alongside her furry companion Witten, a German Shepherd dog who thinks she is a human! Jennifer loves to cook, share her space with friends, travel and help others.
