I did an open house this past weekend at this fabulous home and wanted to share a few details about the home. Home is over 7100 sq ft and is on a 6 acre tract that leads to the river. The home also comes with a boatslip on the river with a lift.

It must be seen to be believed - here are some of the details:

The family room has a stone fireplace to the ceiling, builtin bar area and huge wood builtins with a gigantic wall mounted plasma.

Stagers - I NEED YOU!!!

Stagers, Designers I Need Your Help

I just listed this home in a very upscale neighborhood near very upscale Wrightsville Beach. The home is being cleaned up and painted and refreshed inside. My dilemma is the door - What color should it be? The homeowners like the current red as it was their fathers house and he picked that color. I am not sure and would love your comments. Please help the color challenged - I need to sell this house!!!!

Sailing Ship to Remain in Wilmington, NC until April 10

This huge sailing ship is docked at the foot of Market Street on the Cape Fear River. It has been docked here for over a month. It was hand made 20 years ago and is a sight to see. With its huge masts and very thick mahogony rails it is amazing to see such handiwork. If you are in town during the Azalea Festival this weekend it is a worth a look. You can walk the gangplank and enter the ship and take a tour. See the old fashioned bed on the aft end and see the incredible mast system on the port side. The handiwork on the boat is incredible. The crew is a religious sect - some family members that work the ship together. They are a communal group where the work, food and living quarters are all shared. It is certainly worth a look. The ship is expected to be docked in Wilmington through the Azalea Fest and until April 10, 2009.
