Generous proportions and historic charcter exemplify this grand colonial in the heart of Historic Downtown Wrightsville. Extensive renovations, just completed, achieved their aim of reviving all three stories to better than new condition! From immaculate refinished heart pine floors, to 9.5' ceilings, to sundrenched front rooms and a fully custom kitchen, this 19th century gem will take your breath away. Improvements such as new central air and additional closet space were thoughtfully integrated into the home to maintain the historic qualities and charm that this home exudes throughout. A floor plan full of expansive rooms allows for easy entertainment of friends and family, and flex space on the first and second floors allows for a home office on either level. Highlights of the first floor include a double living room, formal dining room with fireplace, chef's kitchen with a dizzying amount of custom cabinetry, black stainless appliances, quartz countertops, and an adjacent sitting room with wet bar. Follow the remarkably preserved original handrail up the refinished stairs to the second floor. There you'll find two large bedrooms, each with fireplaces and double closets. Adjacent to both bedrooms is a full updated bath with tile shower walls and loads of storage built in. Off the stairs is a flex room featuring a fireplace and access to the balcony, with laundry hookups and ample space to set up a reading room, play room, or home office! This flex space also provides access to the first floor via a second set of stairs and stairs to a walk-up attic storage space. All these rooms share the common theme of beautiful original flooring, large windows, high ceilings, and beautiful woodwork! Rounding out the interior is a third floor boasting two massive bedrooms and a brand new full bath with gorgeous tile flooring. But that's not all! The exterior of this home continues to impress with durable and beautiful brickwork in the front, side and backyard. A convenient side entrance just off the kitchen leads out to a private brick patio area, with a brick walkway leading to the English garden style backyard complete with mature plantings and enclosed with a brick wall! With spring just around the corner, get ready to take in the sights and smells of your blooming garden from the comfort and privacy of your new, maintenance-free Trex deck. Enjoy a walk up and down Locust St, brimming with pride of ownership and many homes on the National Register of Historic Places. Or take a walk one block down to the riverfront and the fabulous John Wright Restaurant and Burning Bridge Tavern. Rest easy knowing all the work is done on this home, including refinished floors, updated bathrooms and kitchen, fresh paint inside and out, new central air conditioning, lots of updated plumbing and electrical, all new replacement windows, new hot water heater, and a myriad of other finishing touches. Efficient natural gas heat and cast iron radiators make for comfortable, even heat. You'll feel like royalty and take great pride in the quality of craftsmanship and enduring beauty of this mindfully restored Wrightsville treasure. Don't miss your chance; they don't build them like this anymore!
