Monthly Estimate* How much can I afford?

This beautiful stone colonial retains the charm & features of the original 1916 home, expanded & updated for 21st century living. Sitting on a large a corner lot in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the city, this architectural gem has undergone careful renovation & preservation by the current owners. Upon entering the gracious center hall, you are immediately aware of the exceptional details of this lovely home including 10ft ceilings, beautiful crown moldings, wainscoting, beautiful hardwood floors, & original solid mahogany-stained doors and banisters. Accessed from the center hall is a gracious living room with gas burning Pennsylvania stone fireplace & original built in bookcases. The all-season porch off the living room offers a warm & cozy gathering area with another beautiful stone fireplace. The gorgeous dining room features a 3 paneled bay window, deep window sills, exquisite woodwork including an original built in corner cabinet with curved glass front, crown molding & chair rail with raised panels below. A pass thru door from the dining room leads to a charming breakfast room with original built in corner cabinets. Off the breakfast room is the beautifully renovated kitchen with an expansive Vermont verde marble island and counter tops, custom cabinetry, glass tile backsplash, Sub Zero fridge, Wolf Oven, two warming trays, built in microwave/convection oven, built in ice maker, wine refrigerator, & its own radiant floor heating system that warms cold bare feet quickly on winter mornings. Mudroom entry from rear yard is located off the kitchen & offers built-in-cabinets for everyday storage with an oversized pantry closet that has separate individual cubbies for family members. The kitchen & living room each lead to a classic screened in porch overlooking the flagstone patio surrounded by a professionally landscaped yard offering the ultimate experience of privacy within the city, a true backyard oasis. The low stone wall surrounding the edge of the patio was built by a Longwood master craftsman. Upstairs you will find 4-5 bedrooms & 4 full bathrooms. The front & back staircases lead to the cozy reading room/library with built in shelves & cabinets. This room adjoins an office area with built in cabinets & accesses the master bathroom, with a walk-in shower, towel warmer & separately zoned radiant heated floor. A large walk-in closet is accessed from the bathroom. The adjacent master bedroom contains another walk-in closet & adjoins a second bathroom with Jacuzzi tub and electric towel warmer that is also accessible from the upstairs hallway. The second bedroom suite off the second floor hallway consists of two bedrooms from the original home that have been thoughtfully reconfigured to have a single entryway. This two room suite includes a large walk in closet, a bathroom between the two rooms with walk in shower & an adjacent, large office area with built in desks, cabinets & shelves. The suite could easily be reconfigured back into two separately entered bedrooms on either side of a classic, shared Jack & Jill bathroom. The third floor contains two bedrooms: one that originally served as a large billiard room in the original home with three closets and lots of storage space. The third floor also contains a large, updated bathroom with both the classic original tub & a new, large walk in shower as well as a cedar closet & two additional closets for storage. A large, finished lower level rec room is accessible from the kitchen; it has a built in wet-bar, a microwave & a mini-fridge. The unfinished area of the basement serves as a laundry room with additional refrigerator, freezer and ample storage space. A detached, stone, two-car garage has ample space for gardening tools and easily accessed attic storage from a staircase at the back. All of this is just steps from Rockford & Alapocas Run Parks, Delaware Art Museum, the shops & dining of Trolley Square & minutes from Downtown Wilmington.
