Property Description

This extraordinary property will meet all of your expectations! Nestled in one of the most distinguished communities in the north Wilmington suburbs on .92 acre, the original stone colonial features all of the charming architectural elements of the early 20th century polished to perfection. Then came the many upgrades, improvements and the addition! The gracious formal areas of the original plans remain and are seamlessly married to the skillfully designed 2 story addition. The owner~s suite is reached by its own separate staircase in the addition and offers views of the front and rear yards. The vaulted ceiling and generous windows lend a spacious feel to the main bedroom. Do you need closet space? Would a total of 5 be enough, just in the master suite? Plus there is even a separate loft space which could be used as an office, work out space or sitting area. The ceramic tiled master bath completes the owners suite. Walk across the plant-filled loggia overlooking the 2 story kitchen (We'll get to that later!) and you will find 4 more bedrooms which include the original owners suite. You will notice that fixtures have been upgraded and all the windows are energy-efficient. Now for the kitchen. To say that it would appeal to the gourmet cook is an understatement. How about "miles" of granite counter and "acres" of custom cabinetry? All high end SS appliances and Brazilian cherry flooring complete the picture. Through the sliding doors, you will reach the 2 patios just outside of the kitchen. One can be reserved for dining, and the other? How about a fire pit? All of this overlooks huge the backyard bounded by woods on 3 sides. Oh, and there is a shed tucked over in the corner to store all your equipment for your organic garden.. The lovely living room with its deep window sills & fireplace and the gracious dining room both open to the side screened porch where you can enjoy summer breezes. There is wonderful flow from room to room and the cozy family room with its own corner fireplace and gas starter is open to the kitchen. Consider how you might use what was the original kitchen space at the end of the main entrance foyer. The current owners have used the area to extend possibilities for entertaining guests and family. Think open library/reading area, children~s play area, home office? The spacious turned garage and sweeping driveway offer plenty of storage and off street parking. The location is so convenient for all of life~s necessities and a short distance from all main travel arteries.
