One of only a handful of Wilmington Historic homes that overlook the Cape Fear River, the Philander Pearsall house was built in 1899 on a Revolutionary War encampment known as Sunset Hill. Sited at 31 feet above the river, the residence offers sweeping panoramic views from Memorial Bridge to the battle ship USS- North Carolina. A beautiful blend of the original character (with heart pine and tiger oak parquet flooring) with the modern conveniences of a new kitchen open to the riverfront family room and updated master bath. In addition to the 4 bedrooms, there is an income producing studio apartment. Additional features include deep double rear porches, an open flat backyard and plenty of off-street parking.
