Magnificent and mesmerizing defines this 8-year young custom-built French Colonial that borders Turkey Run Creek and is perched on a 1-acre lot at the end of a cul-de-sac. This home offers a breathtaking first impression with its extensive and extraordinary landscaping and hardscaping by reputed Bill Duncan. Designed to compliment the naturalness of Rockwood Park - which the property borders. The stunning use of flagstone, Chilean stone pavers and local stone is awe-inspiring. Steps away are the Rockwood Museum and Park and Delaware's 30-mile greenway. Since the home was built to fit into the natural landscape and picturesque creek, the home's back and sides are a mix of floor-to-ceiling windows, Palladian windows and French doors.
