This lovely home offers the best of living in the heart of the Historic District--a quiet, tree-lined street with easy access to Wilmington's Riverwalk, downtown shops, restaurants and entertainment venues. (Walkability score of 96!) The E. Payson Willard House is a gracious, 4 bed/3.5 bath home built in 1908. It was completely renovated in 2018 to an exacting standard, retaining original character while creating a home with the comforts and open concept desired by a modern family. There are two potential owner's suites--one downstairs (behind a hidden bookcase door!) that could also serve as a great in-law suite with separate entrance; and a larger suite upstairs with its own private porch and decorative fireplace. In all, there are 3 porches, including a screened-in back porch and a large front porch perfect for sipping sweet tea and visiting with neighbors. The renovations on this home were extensive and well done, and should put at ease any buyer thinking of living in a home over 100 years old. These include electrical and plumbing, new insulation, foundation work, 2 new HVAC systems, roof and more. (Ask for the list!) There's a surprising amount of storage, including a floored attic. The owners installed a whole-house generator in 2020, as well as adding a wired, 8x14 ft workshop/shed in the fenced back yard. An off-street parking space is a definite bonus! This is an exceptional home for buyers looking for charming character, modern convenience and outstanding location.
