Description

Historic architecture meets modern luxury when this property went though a complete transition. It was transformed from an inhabitable structure to a truly unique, one of a kind art deco home. No costs nor efforts were spared to create an authentic, incredible home that is unequalled whereby history is combined with amenities of today. Walking into the house, you're greeted by five designer chandeliers that lead to the open floor plan through custom made, double 10 ft high wrought iron doors designed in an art deco style. Beautiful hardwood floors, with character, embrace the entire house. They were created by repurposing the original early 1900's boards replaced during the construction process and then milled into tongue and groove flooring. The wood floors are essential over 110 years old. All ceilings in the house were restored back to the original 10 feet height as they had been lowered over the years to 8 ft for unknown reasons. Attention to detail and thoughtful appointments abound as you round the corner into the next room. The luxurious master bath is breathtaking and includes a vanity brought in from the Netherlands and customized to accommodate a double sized sink. The antique front door was original to an old farmhouse in Chatham County NC. It was stripped, meticulously restored, repainted and a wrought iron customized window cover was installed to create a one of a kind front door. Two of the three fireplaces were kept in place and custom finished into century old display pieces. The third fireplace now serves as an accent feature in the dining room and hallway. Additional windows were installed to bring in the sunlight, while the outside of the windows are flanked by custom made shutters to emphasize the uniqueness of the house. The interior doors are antique doors re-purposed into pocket doors to utilize the space more effectively. An antique cast iron bathtub was moved into the guest bathroom and is complimented by a porcelainpedestal sink adorned with a swan art deco faucet. This multi-purpose room includes a separate water closet, laundry area and another custom, wrought iron window in line with the other art-deco appointments. Words can only begin to describe the specialness of this 1920 Circa, two bedroom, two bath home sitting on a double-deep lot with off-street parking and a fence yard for privacy and entertaining. Other features include designer light fixtures, Nest thermostat, on-demand tankless water heater, a UV-C light installed in the HVAC system to eliminates 99.9% of viruses (including Covid-19), germs, allergens and mold, a kettle/pasta faucet conveniently placed above the gas range, sturdy hardi-plank siding, a new metal roof and more. This house has been transformed from abandoned to stunning. The convenient Downtown location is within walking distance to the 1.75 mile stretch on the Cape Fear Riverwalk, the new Riverfront Park Amphitheater, restaurants, theaters, restaurants, galleries, breweries, and more. We also want to note that the house next door has been approved and slated to be removed any day now. Come visit today and be sure to request the brochure describing all the details of the renovation process of this truly one-of-a kind, unique home!
