Overview

Live Oaks, a home of distinction and historical significance, sits proudly on seven acres of high bluffs overlooking the pristine waters of Masonboro Sound and Masonboro Island. This stretch of Wilmington waterfront is highly sought after and home to many fine estates, both new and historical. Live Oaks was designed by the renowned architect, Henry Bacon, who famously designed the Lincoln Memorial. The two-story Italian Renaissance style home is octagonal and crowned by a handsomely detailed, glazed cupola, and topped by a pineapple-shaped finial. The most prominent building material is coquina, made from local seashells. The first story is completely encircled by a one-story porch, which harmoniously repeats the octagonal form. Rising above the concrete coquina piers are two-story porticos, which are balustrade and provide sleeping porches for the second story bedrooms. Towering live oak trees, blooming shrubs, grape arbors, gardens, and stately magnolias grace the landscape and reaffirm the vital connection between architecture, land and sky. Live Oaks was a summer playground for rich and famous in the early 20th century with the likes of the Vanderbilts and Astors as frequent visitors. Renovated in 1991 and 1992, it is said that one worker spent a month polishing brass doorknobs and hinges. This property may be purchased as is on Lot 2 for $3,600,000 or with the adjacent lots 1 & 3 to then exceed 7 acres for $5,75,000. Please see MLS#100047104 and MLS#100046752.
