Hey everyone!
Check out this exquisite property for sale in the Masonboro area here in Wilmington, NC!

From the Listing Description:
"The lure of the sea has always been with us. Over a century ago, a magnificent Beaux Arts mansion was designed by Henry Bacon and nestled under a canopy of stately live oaks, draped in moss, on one of Wilmington's prominent bluffs. Sited on nearly 8 acres with 300 feet of prime waterfront overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway and Masonboro Island.

"Live Oaks at Masonboro" was constructed of solid coquina concrete, created using local oyster shells. The tranquility of soft waves lapping at the shoreline drew the likes of Whitney's Vanderbilts, Astors and McKoys to this masterpiece. Topped with a slate roof and octagonal copula, Live Oaks is a must see for the connoisseur of classic architecture of historical significance. Five parcels are included in this offering."
