Location is one of the most valued factors in buying a home and this home has it! The home sits on a four acre property that is close by Greenville Center, Winterthur and the Delaware Museum of Natural History; as well as acres of protected lands.The Colonial-style home was originally built of masonry in 1816 on a higher point of the gently-sloping lands. The front of the home has a wide porch with a broad overhead roof. In this section of the home are a living room and a dining room with high ceilings, setback windows, including a built-in set of wood drawers in one window set with the same trim and wood floors. Each of these rooms also has an original fireplace with carved mantels.An entry from either of these rooms leads to the great room, kitchen, and mudroom. This section of the home was added for what a modern family looks for in a home. The kitchen was recently updated, has a separate eating area, exposed ceiling beams, a large functional island and room to cook or watch the cook.The great room also has exposed beams and overhead fan, large fireplace with built-in surrounding bookshelves and cabinets, a large picture window that looks onto the property and a door leading to an attached seasonal porch. Finally, the main floor has an office/separate bedroom with adjacent full bathroom.The master bedroom is on the second floor in the original section of the home and has a built-in clothes bureau, 2 cedar closets and its own full bathroom. There are two separate bedrooms and one full bathroom to round out the second floor. One bedroom has a built-in clothes bureau. The other bedroom has built-in a clothes bureau and shelving.There is a large separate 3 car garage. Above the garage is a 2 bedroom, full bathroom apartment with a full kitchen. This structure is significant as it is grandfathered into the county code, which allows for its use as a rental property. One possibility is keeping the existing home with garage and selling the adjacent 2 acres. This home and property are being sold as is.
