This one is all about location and potential. Only 15 minutes to Wrightsville Beach and 20 minutes to Carolina Beach. Love the staircase in the turret! This home was built in 1913.

There is a detached structure that is along Carolina Beach Road. Four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 4,531 square feet. $349,900

From the Zillow listing:


This mansion sits prominently on the corner of Central Blvd and Carolina Beach Rd. Rarely do such opportunities hit the market. The property includes the manor house consisting of three levels and a basement, as well as a detached structure which fronts Carolina Beach Road. The character of this home is truly unique and most of the interior features of the home are well preserved. The turret staircase, the foyer, and the upstairs landing are charming artifacts of a bygone era. A formal dining room with parlors on the first and second floors all point to a time when households were more social – even though there are more walls in this home than most modern floor plans. Two kitchens – each with farm house sinks and counters – add to the versatility of this great home. The antique range in the second level kitchen is a delight for sure. This grand dame invites guests to enjoy evenings on the front porch and the west side yard provide a nice lawn for events and entertaining.
