    Description

    JUST REDUCED and ready for spring buyers. Very seldom does a chance come along to own a landmark property with unparalleled details from every angle. No doubt one of the most distinctive homes in Wilmington, the Postel house or known by many locals as "the Gargoyle House." This gothic revival was built in 1905 by Grantley Postles, Postle was the third generation of a prominent Wilmington family and the son of General James Park Postle, a veteran of the Civil War. The home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This 6 bedroom 3 full bath and 2 half bath estate adorned with timeless details, woodburning fireplaces, and original woodwork captures your attention from the second you step onto the grounds. This home unlike any of its kind in area is ready to welcome on a new steward to recreate the next 100 years of stately grandeur. Although in recent years this estate has been used as a home office many major renovations and upgrades have been made there is still plenty of room for you to bring your imagination of customizing this solid masterpiece to your heart's desire. Rarely can one find a 10.000 SF Gothic Revival boasting a detached 2 car garage with a 3 room upstairs apartment that currently generates $10k per year as a successful Airbnb. Zoned R-1 owner occupant is permitted to run a business according to zoning rules and regulations. This historic home is being offered as-is, buyers, their contractors, decorators, and inspectors are welcome to access. Inspections will be for informational purposes only. Schedule your tour and come fall in love with a piece of Wilmington's history. Listing agent must accompany.
