400 Front Street, Wilmington, NC 28401:
Property Description

The Dudley Mansion on Front Street in Wilmington, NC is available to continue the legacy of its elite owners and guests. The rich history and prominent inhabitants reinforce the exclusivity of owning this grand historic home. The stately mansion is on nearly an acre of land and overlooks the Cape Fear River. Records indicate the mansion was originally constructed in 1825 for Governor Edward Dudley, the first elected North Carolina Governor by populate vote. Governor Dudley was one of various prominent owners, including: Pembroke Jones and James Sprunt. In early 2000s, the mansion was renovated and restored to revive the estate with present-day amenities and conveniences, while maintaining the integrity and character of its time. The current owner stayed true to its historic appeal, while also updating the property with more advanced technologies, such as: Geothermal Energy and installing two large wells which feed the Geothermal system and irrigation system. Those updates are highly valuable for energy preservation, helping make this grand home more sustainable and efficient. As you walk into the extravagant foyer and entry hall your eyes take you to the incredible view of the river and enchanting backyard, that is displayed by large and abundant windows in the sunroom. The natural light spreads organically throughout the home, but seems to dim in all the right rooms. The sunset is phenomenal and can be enjoyed from many areas inside and out, allowing ample opportunity to take it all in. The Dudley Mansion features four living floors – where you’ll find many surprises: from the library and den (or ”Smokers lounge”) on the main floor, to the Media room on the third floor with roof access to an observation deck with 360 degree views, to the old large safe and old cistern access in the basement. The enchantment persists in the backyard with multiple areas to hang out, including outdoor kitchen, tranquil sitting area near a charming tree, a tree fort and much more.
