WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Hidden behind large magnolia trees, you’ll find a commanding Mediterranean-inspired home on this year’s Azalea Festival Home Tour.

Located near Wilmington’s Oakdale cemetery, the Wolf-Webb home was built and designed 12 years ago by John Wallace.

When he sold the home, local artist Katherine Wolf-Webb knew she had to purchase it.

“His wife had connections with South America, so that’s the Mediterranean feel you get here and he built it for them,” Wolf-Webb said.

The house has a beautiful staircase and a large dining room that overlooks an enclosed courtyard.

Wolf-Webb converted the garage and an upstairs room into an art studio.

She says the craftsmanship of the home makes it a remarkable place to live.

“You can tell that it was built with love and attention and excellent design,” she said.
