    One of your most interesting finds for sure Kelly. So much to like about it, grand, stairwell to die for, lots of WB fireplaces, large rooms, beautiful floors, waterfront, and an acre lot. I guess the trick will be finding someone who wants this much sq footage, because this is a full blown mansion. But it would be fun to just wonder around in and admire. And imagine the parties you could throw in this place!!

    To borrow a wonderful line from Ross, “a whole house comes with that staircase!”

  5. Pictures really can’t capture the flow of the house or volume, and what to do with those 3 alcoves to tie them into the scheme of things? My wife was worried about flooding and I was worried about HVAC and then she said, well why do you still want to see it?
    and I replied, because my vintage bus will fit in the garage!

    What an architecturally interesting house! There’s a definite French Norman influence seen in a number of elements such as the metal stair railing (and what a stair it is), the circular stair tower (or keep), and some of the window bays. This is combined with the typical mix of Colonial Revival details like the fluted columns, a plethora of 6/6 windows, and much of the interior trim. I have a feeling that, with all those windows, this house isn’t nearly as dark as it appears in come of those interior shots.

    What a great setting, right on the waterfront – and lots of potential for some gorgeous gardens and landscaping! Considering all of that, it’s surprising that there don’t appear to be any open porches or balconies from which to enjoy it…?

  8. I requested additional information regarding the extremely high taxes, $7,300/yr. Hopefully the taxes are based on sales price. I have been looking in the Wilmington, NC area for an old house to restore but a lot more house with this one.

    • After a bit of research found that the house was built in 1926 by oil dealer Miles L. Clark and it was described as an impressive “Normanesque” residence. Being from New England I am not familiar with that style, more research to do.

        Normanesque was a term essentially describing the Romanesque style when found in Normandy, France. That circular stair tower and the extensive use of arches are a couple of identifiable elements. Normanesque Revival? Yeah maybe.

  9. I took a trip from New England to tour the house as I was very interested in it. The woodwork and floors are amazing, as well as the cloud mural on the ceiling of the room with the sprawling staircase. The basement was flooded at the time, almost to the top of the hatch leading to the basement so I am concerned about mold which was evident in other parts of the house. The property is sub-divided as shown on the tax map which does not do the house any justice. The city itself has an extremely high crime rate. There is a more modern apartment attached but can be brought back to it’s originality. Best use would probably be four units which can be accomplished while maintaining the overall look and feel however the city has restrictions on this. Despite the negatives, if the property price drops to something reasonable, it is worth preserving.
