Description

This comfy, family home features space, large rooms and plenty of them, a new gas heater, a new gas hot water heater, a new concrete front walkway with new steps, a new back walkway, a fireplace, easy parking for lots of cars, a great yard and more. Plaster walls and wood floors throughout in this vintage 1938 solidly built house. Living room has brick fireplace, cleaned several years ago. 2 big attractive bedrooms on the first floor are currently being used as a family room and as an office/den. The heart of the home is the expansive country type kitchen with lots of light and a bay window. Off the kitchen is a bonus main level 17 X 10 laundry room/pantry with brand new floor. Appliances less than 5 years old. The rear screened porch opens to a big, fenced back yard, a detached garage and a private alley off Hillcrest Boulevard, allowing easy parking for at least 4 cars. Plus there is on street parking out front or along Hillcrest Boulevard for plenty of guests on game day or holidays. Upstairs, there are 3 more bedrooms and another full bath. The basement is being used for storage and has a 3 year old furnace that was added when the owners converted from oil to natural gas. Priced under a recent paid appraisal, and offering a rare opportunity to do a little spiffing and reap the obvious benefits, this home has a few rough spots: floor and small area in kitchen ceiling and floor in upstairs bath need some attention; home is being offered "as is".
Sidewalks, street lights, a private alley and near by easy transportation into work sites in Wilmington or shopping north. The home is in a great location, situated well up from the street but accessible without stairs from the alley entrance and offers so much warm, cozy room! .

The Temperature chart displays average high and low values for January and July, and is designed to provide an indication of both seasonal and daily temperature variability. The Weather Risk Index indicates the calculated risk of each type of weather event occurring in the future. This risk is based on historical localized storm events and weather patterns. The national average for each type of weather event equals a score of 100, so a score of 200 would represent twice the risk as the national average, and a score of 50 would represent half the risk of the national average.
