    Description

    Southern elegance and beauty! This historic and stately home, draped with a canopy of live oaks, sits high above the Cape Fear River on a large lot (approx. .425 acres) on E. Bay Street. The exact date this home was built is unknown but the historic plaque refers to it as the Dr. Lorenzo Frink House circa 1875 - who was a well-known and loved Southport physician and also the great-grandfather of American film actor, Joseph Cotten. Several additions have been made to this home over the years but it has kept its grand appeal. To enter, follow the curved brick steps to an expansive front porch where you can enjoy the gorgeous views and ship watching along the Cape Fear River as well as the salubrious breezes. On the first floor, you will find a large formal living room and formal dining room - both with gorgeous river views, a den with fireplace, breakfast room, kitchen, master bedroom, full bath, laundry room and/or pantry, and a sun porch. Follow the curved staircase to the second floor where you will find 4 more bedrooms and 1 bath. There are stairs from the first floor to the large basement. A long driveway, accessed from Rhett Street, leads to a 2-car carport with an entry door to the basement where you access stairs to the main floor. The front yard and large back yard are outlined with camellias and azaleas. This historic home has been owned and loved by many prominent families over the last 146 years and is ready for a new chapter in its life. Don't miss the opportunity to own such a grand home and continue its history while living in and enjoying all that the quaint, coastal, and historic town of Southport has to offer. This home was entered into the the National Register of Historic Places on November 25, 1980.
