    Description

    Unique opportunity to own this CHARMING home on a private lot located on the edge of the Hockessin~Newark boundary. Follow the winding paved drive and notice two overflow staged parking spaces on the way up the rolling hillside. This lovely masonry & framed 2800 +/- square foot two story is nestled on a 1.01 acre wooded lot, abundant with mature plantings and trees but also opens up at the top of the hill where the home is situated. There is a view of other homes near the side and rear boundaries. Ready for your personal updates, this home was built in 1975 by Dick Burke. Solid wood flooring was originally installed on both levels of the home, along with a Gambrel roof (two slopes on each side) to maximize the height/headroom of the second floor. Outside main entry is via the raised brick staircase into a large entry foyer front to back that opens into the formal living and dining rooms. The formal living room offers a wood burning fireplace with a brick hearth and surround, wood mantel, and chair rail. A formal dining room with chair rail and door to the rear facing kitchen adds to ease in entertaining & formal dining. The first floor provides a bedroom and full bath with shower for use as a master or In-Law suite. A hallway powder room is located near the eat in kitchen. Another home entry is through a 5 x 13 front covered porch that provides less formal access into the family room. A stunning STONE floor to ceiling fireplace was constructed in the family room with a stone mantel and stone raised hearth~truly a masonry masterpiece. The second floor hosts a master bedroom en suite with shower and two additional bedrooms and hallway full bath with a soaking tub . Laundry including a wash tub is located on the main level with access door to the back yard and door to the two car turned garage, which also has a 9 x 7 space for a workshop & an access door to the driveway. The foundation and unfinished basement was constructed using concrete block and steel I-Beams. Basement includes the utilities: Heater rebuilt in 2019 w/ 10 yr transferable warranty, hot water heater replaced in 2019 and a well water treatment system. Recent upgrades to this home include a new roof-1 layer- in 2017: Furnace rebuilt 10/2019; 8 yr old oil tank; many more maintenance updates during ownership. This home is a nature lover's paradise with flagstone paths and wildlife within view, located in the Red Clay Consolidated School District. Private, Charter & Parochial schooling choices are nearby. This home offers ease of commuting for work, health, or Entertainment & the Arts to Wilmington, Newark, Philadelphia, Kennett Square and Baltimore. Phila. Int.
