Property Description

THE GILCHRIST MANSION AND CARRIAGE HOUSE Many buildings are built, but very few are createdIt is a rare opportunity to buy a 6,950 sq ft historical mansion that allows a person to create something truly magnificent and magical. This Queen Anne-style historical mansion was built by E. William Gilchrist in 1894. There are two options to consider when purchasing this property. One is to follow through with the seller's plan to subdivide the mansion into 4 upscale residences (The Gilchrist Mansion and Carriage House) or, Two - renovate the 6 bedroom, 5 bath mansion as a luxurious palatial estate for your own use. It has taken 2 years to get The Gilchrist project to this point. The site has been cleared, and architectural and engineering plans are in place and ready for this majestic conversion. The purchase price includes all architectural and engineering plans and more. Please visit online at TheGilchrist to get a detailed overview of this unique project. It is very unlikely to find a large lot facing two streets in historic downtown Wilmington. This property consists of 0.42 acre and fronts Market Street as well as 7th Street and is within walking distance to the heart of downtown and very close to the new Coca-Cola Soda Pop district. The exterior of the mansion is in great shape, the metal roof is newer, the interior has been stripped down to its bones, and its bones are in excellent shape. The house features 12-foot ceilings, a grand staircase, a basement, 8 fireplaces and so much more! I can assure you that once you visit this property, the experience will be one of wonder and wonderful!
