    Description

    This is your chance to own a piece of Delaware history with this stunning 3 story Craftsman stone home that sits nestled on a wooded, hilltop lot in Brandywine Hundred. This historic home was built in 1900 and was home to the late preservationist S. Marston Fox, the architect behind the nearby Fox Point state park. Tucked away from the road behind a lush wall of mature trees and vegetation you will discover a magical place as you round the circular driveway that showcases a gigantic oak tree. The grounds have been expertly designed by the previous owner who was a landscape architect with perennials that will dazzle you through the seasons. The stone carriage house contains an open studio with wood stove above the two car garage which can be used as an artist+GGs space or playroom. The home has some amazing updates including all new roofing and decking on the entire main house with indestructible synthetic slate, matte black metal front porch roof and new shingles on the rear porch along with a fresh coat of Navy blue on the cedar shingled siding with crisp white wood trim and windows throughout. From the circular driveway, enter the home through the main floor with 9.5ft ceilings through the updated kitchen featuring granite counters, brand new black stainless appliances including a gas range, hammered copper sink, high quality oak cabinets and is flanked by a true butler+GGs pantry featuring a second copper sink with dishwasher and additional storage on the other side of the butler+GGs staircase to the second floor. The dedicated dining room features wainscotting with a bay window with built in seating and heavy pocket doors. Head through to the living room which feels more like a lodge as you cozy up next to the gas fireplace with a one-of-a-kind mantel that was hand carved by neighbor and famous local artist Robert Shaw. The living room also features heavy pocket doors for movie night. Head over to one of the most amazing rooms in the house is the bright first floor office which sits in the corner surrounded by windows which overlook the peaceful grounds and birdfeeders which provides the perfect place to work from home. The first-floor half bath is accessed through the office and main hallway and features a unique original privacy door for the toilet stall. From the main floor hallway, walk towards the crown jewel of the house, the massive screened in porch where family and friends can gather in privacy behind the greenery all around. Head upstairs to the second floor with 8.5 ft ceilings while admiring the amazing craftmanship of the woodwork of the grand oak staircase and bannisters to the 5 spacious bedrooms. The master has an adjacent bedroom that can be used as a nursery or dressing room or closed for privacy with a door. The full bath on the second floor features original pressed tin paneling and a clawfoot tub. Each of the 5 bedrooms has its own mini-split HVAC unit for personalizing temps on a humid summer or chilly winter night for each sleeper. The home also sports a state-of-the-art, inverter ultra-high-efficiency HVAC installed in 2019 with a wifi-enabled thermostat. The third floor features a bonus finished space that can easily be turned into a dedicated master. There is an attached blank slate open space with 16 ft vaulted ceilings that could be the master bath and dressing room of your dreams!
