From the Zillow listing:


1901. The same year the first automobile drove down the streets of Wilmington. During this busy time in history, a sweet farmhouse was built in the heart of Rocky Point. It looks like a story book came to life. A white picket fence is perched atop a sprawling green lawn with a thick canopy of trees as the backdrop. A full length, covered front porch is begging for a jug of sweet tea, wooden rockers, and laughing friends. You can feel the incredible history of this home before you even walk through the front doors. At 119 years old, this is the house people are talking about when they say ”they just don’t make ’em like this anymore.”


Hardwood floors and intricate original ceiling details greet you in the charming entryway. From the hanging pendant light to the lantern wall sconces, there is historical character in every room. On one side of the entryway, The Tilted Room (Bedroom #1) features the most incredible diagonal wall sheathing with a warm wood stain. Creamy white beadboard wainscotting keeps the room bright, with vertical details to bring more intensity to the planked walls and ceiling. Finished with the first of 4 original aged brick fireplaces On the other side of the entryway, The Amaranthine Room (Bedroom #2) is timeless. The floor to ceiling shiplap walls in white will always be on trend. The aged brick fireplace and thick reclaimed wood mantle will make you ooh and ah. A tall window and warm wood floors complete this classic space. From the entryway and up the stairs with stunning custom lattice railing, a bonus room is decked out in hardwood floors, white-washed plank ceilings, and exposed wooden beams. It’s just enough room for a small guest room or large office, playroom, library, or game room. If you head back down the stairs and deeper into the home, there’s space at the end of the entryway for a gorgeous hutch or shelving.


To the left is a cozy living room. The designers have perfectly balanced the coastal farmhouse details with clean simplicity, allowing you to take in all the special details of the original build, without making you feel like you’re in a museum. The living room features soft white walls, oversized windows, original planked ceiling, and thick molding. A white-washed brick gas fireplace and intricate mantle make a gorgeous focal point.A newly remodeled bathroom is located off the hallway, through the living room. Custom tilework pales in comparison to the gold-trimmed vintage style sink and age-old light fixtures. The thick old sliding barn door keeps the hallway clear. The jewel of this 1900 sqft cottage is the dining room and kitchen. From the dutch door leading to the screened-in porch to the custom-built in dining room bench to the seafoam green kitchen, you will not be able to stop saying, “Oh wow, look at this!” Beautiful old pendant lights A double bowl farmhouse sink, custom floor tile, subway tile backsplash, oversized windows, new appliances, a gas stove, and striking cabinet pulls work together to make this room a show stopper.


Remodeled with incredible thought and design. Next to the spacious screened-in porch, the laundry room doubles as the utility room. Across from the living room, off the entryway, The Haven Room (Bedroom #3 – the Master) is ready to melt your cares away. White shiplap climbs all the way up to the blue planked ceiling. The scent of blossoming fruit trees ruffles through the french doors. Another fireplace wich was necessary for warmth a century ago. Today the gas fireplace is a beautiful focal point, providing character, charm. It’s flanked by tall glass door closets. The master bathroom is even more spectacular than the guest bath. Tall glass doors, subway tile, and a one-of-a-kind mint vanity with double vessel sinks make this room worthy of a photo shoot. The entire 2.39 acres is fenced in and filled with sprawling grass, thick trees, and delicious fruit trees. Mulberry bushes, pear, pecan, and cherry trees are a stunning backdrop for muscadine grap
