Welcome to Summer Haven, arguably the most desired neighborhood in all of Wilmington. Located off Summer Rest Road just before the drawbridge to Wrightsville Beach, 216 Beech Street is situated on an elevated, estate-sized lot totaling more than an acre. This home was designed by prominent mid-century architect and former mayor of Wrightsville Beach, Robert Sawyer. Constructed in 1965, this home was built like no other. Using concrete, brick and steel, this home was designed to withstand the elements of the coastal environment. 216 Beech Street features over 5400 square feet of total conditioned square footage including a rare, 2157 square foot finished basement. This architectural gem features 4 bedrooms, 4 full baths, vaulted great room, oversized windows and doors, teak entry doors, polished terrazzo floors throughout and somuch more. Recently remodeled in 2016 improvements include a new, all white modern kitchen with quartz countertops, a new efficient geothermal heating cooling system and a new architectural shingled roof. This is a unique opportunity to live close to Wrightsville Beach, great restaurants and shopping, all while located in a cozy, quiet neighborhood that is tucked away off the Intracoastal waterway and in the sought-after Wrightsville Beach School district.
