Property Description

Set on more than ten acres close to the Red Clay Creek and Ashland Nature Preserves and the Mt. Cuba Botanical Gardens, and within minutes of Greenville, Hockessin and downtown Wilmington, DE, this early 20th century home provides a charming and private retreat overlooking Burrows Run and the Red Clay Creek. Classic architecture and modern amenities blend seamlessly to a rare combination of preferred options. Enormous trees, rare and mature landscaping and seasons of colorful displays abound throughout the property. Two detached garages provide parking for up to 12 cars. Above the 4-car garage, across the courtyard from the house, is a one-bedroom apartment with a private entrance. Towards the back of the property, beyond the custom Amish chicken house, is another 8 car garage. The substantial home, with expansive living space on the first floor, includes a laundry/mudroom with a slate floor and recently remodeled cabinetry. The front entrance opens to a hallway filled with light from an abundance of windows from the adjoining rooms. The kitchen features a Wolf oven and gas stove, Sub Zero refrigerator/freezer, ice maker and wine cooler, two Bosch dishwashers and a separate wet bar, all with marble countertops, hardwood floors and an adjoining sitting/breakfast area opening to the raised bed vegetable garden and terrace overlooking the bubbling stream. A cozy library, formal dining room, corner lit living room, all with fireplaces, and a tiled, radiant heat floor sunroom and powder room complete the entry level of the house. Upstairs, four ensuite bedrooms, each well lit with large double hung windows, allow for numerous family members and guests to privately retreat in luxury. The spacious Primary bedroom wing includes a separate entranceway with two dressing rooms, a full-sized safe, linen closet, and a large bathroom with walk-in glass and marble shower, soaking tub and separate sinks with vanities. Lastly, the basement provides ample dry storage and features a gated custom wine cellar.
