On the market for the first time in 68 years, this iconic park-side ''Carolina Avenue'' residence sits on a wooded .90 acre and boasts 5899 square feet with 6 bedrooms and 3 full baths. Listed as ''The David Wilson House'' on the National Register of Historic Houses, this magnificent home was built in 1905 and is filled with breathtaking 10-foot ceilings, four fireplaces, elaborate moldings, incredible mill-work and original hardwood floors. Take pause when you first step into the large and welcoming foyer, as it provides you with breathtaking views of the gorgeous living room, overly-sized dining room (both with pocket doors) and stunningly-built staircases with a stain-glass window that is simply spectacular. The living room and dining rooms speaks for themselves with the original wood work that is in fantastic condition. In 2005, the kitchen was remodeled with new peg-pattern hardwood floors, updated plumbing fixtures & appliances, recessed lighting and 63-inch custom cherry cabinets. During the remodel, laundry was also moved to the first-floor (located just off the butler's pantry) and the side porch was enclosed to make a year-round Florida room with updated windows and gas heat and central air. A half bath is also conveniently located on the first-floor; adjacent to the second set of stairs to the second and their floors. Upstairs you will find four generously-sized bedrooms; a Jack-and-Jill bathroom sits between two of the bedrooms and a 2nd full bath is located down the hall. The smaller of the four bedrooms has access to a side 2nd-floor porch. The third floor is truly a usable space with adequate ceiling height and central air and heat. With approximately 1250 square feet on the third floor, you will find two additional bedrooms and a large room that would make for a fantastic recreational/family room. While the third full bath located on the third floor is in strong need of remodeling, the plumbing for all fixtures exists and the bathroom has been in usable condition within the past few years. This stately home is one-of-a-kind and is truly a spectacle to see. It is s believed (but not confirmed) to be one of the original 12 manor houses in the area. PLEASE TAKE NOTE: That by being on the National Registry of Historic Houses, this allows the next homeowner to benefit from numerous tax incentives/credits as they bring this gorgeous home back to its original beauty!
