Extraordinary opportunity for historical buffs or anyone that wants their home to reflect the true flavor of Wilmington!Welcome to the Holloway-Hunt House, begun in 1887 and completed by 1905. William R Glenn, contractor, built this neoclassical Revival style house for Cammie Lord and Elisha Holloway. In 1918, it was purchased by Henry Lacy Hunt, a bank officer and wholesale grocer and this was home to the Hunt family until 1967.**note full pics and drone will be uploaded Sunday April 11.***This house has a prominent historic pedigree which has been recognized by the Historic Wilmington Foundation and was closely scrutinized by the Historic Preservation Commission and the City of Wilmington. Virtually no expense was spared in a faithful restoration to the exterior. This home and the restoration won the 2020 Preservation Award for Restoration.Like many historic homes, the Holloway-Hunt House had fallen into a sad state of disrepair. With modifications and historically inaccurate updates over the decades, the home's exterior needed total restoration from the roof to the foundation and every surface in between. With a keen commitment to historic preservation, the Holloway-Hunt House has been restored to its original stately appearance.The restoration focused on returning the structure to its original design and construction. The removal of a 1950-1970 addition to the rear of the home and a re-opening of the two-story rear porches were key aspects of the project. All original components of the home's exterior were salvaged, repaired or faithfully replicated in order to prepare the structure for another 100 years of service. Improvements include:Replacement of the Roof and gutters: The original built-in gutters, long since failed and damaged by incompatible repairs and temporary replacements, were re-lined with copper, hand formed and soldered on site. All downspouts were replaced as well to effectively shed water and protect the structure
