Located in one of the most sought-after areas in the Historic District, this gem of a home is a rare find! This 1901 beauty offers a traditional ''4-over-4'' floor plan, with nearly everything updated or renovated! From the minute you walk up the front steps, you will notice the rich detailing that will take you back in time; the iron front railings, restored front door, gleaming wood floors... You'll be amazed by the light-filled, renovated kitchen that's a delight for today's chef and has been featured twice on the Historic Kitchen Tour. A wonderfully unique feature is the floor to ceiling windows in the back of the house that let in an abundance of natural light! The best part is that this historic home is MOVE IN READY; as the electric, plumbing, roof and much more has been upgraded or replaced! There are 4 large bedrooms and 2 fully renovated baths upstairs with another flex room with a full bath on the main floor that could also be used as another bedroom.

The 200 block of Nun Street is quite desirable and residing on the west side of S. 3rd St. is a distinct bonus. It is an lovely stroll to the award-winning Riverwalk. Downtown restaurants, shops and Thalian Hall are also an easy walk. Unlike many historic homes, this one is flooded with natural light. The 4th bedroom has a dedicated line and is presently utilized as a home-office. We love the expansive front porch...a perfect place to read a book, complete a crossword puzzle or chat with friends and visitors passing by. Tired of mowing and yard work? The back area is 8 feet of brick pavers...a perfect place to grow a lovely container garden, have a BBQ and let small dogs frolic. The petition to limit non-resident parking to 2 hours has recently been approved by the City. Final ballots will be distributed the week of July 9th. Being stewards of the John M. Wright House c. 1901 is extremely rewarding.
