Live Oaks, a home of distinction and historical significance, sits proudly on seven acres of high bluffs overlooking the pristine waters of Masonboro Sound and Masonboro Island. This stretch of Wilmington waterfront is highly sought after and home to many fine estates, both new and historical. Live Oaks was designed by the renowned architect, Henry Bacon, who famously designed the Lincoln Memorial. The two-story Italian Renaissance style home is octagonal and crowned by a handsomely detailed, glazed cupola, and topped by a pineapple-shaped finial. The most prominent building material is coquina, made from local seashells. The first story is completely encircled by a one-story porch, which harmoniously repeats the octagonal form. Rising above the concrete coquina piers are two-story
