A restored historic MASTERPIECE with rare garage parking and a guest apartment ideal for visitors or rental income! In 1910 salesman Eugene Philyaw from C.W. Yates & Company purchased the corner lot on Market and 18th Street. Eugene borrowed aesthetics from the stately architecture of Carolina Heights and the creativity of up-and-coming Carolina Place. The home would later become an inn called The Maples and then broken up into apartments, until 2015 when the property was completely restored, winning the Historic Wilmington Foundation Rehabilitation Award and featured on the Azalea Home Tour. Enter from the wrap-around porch and note the absolute treasure of a reading nook with pointed arch trim. The beauty of 1802 Market Street is in the many details: the original glass door knobs, hardwoods, ornate chandeliers, even the door hinges are gorgeous!
