Beautiful, historic, 3 story, 4-bedroom, 2 bath historic home on large corner lot in the waterfront town of Delaware City. When you approach this home built in 1850, you will be welcomed by the elegant front porch and double entry front door. As you step inside, take a moment to enjoy the view! A grand foyer with wide plank hardwood floors, beautiful crown/egg & dart moldings and a charming double staircase leading to the second floor. Imagine the family photos to be taken here. Enjoy the same hardwood floors and tall ceilings throughout this home. Turn right and enter the large family room with floor to ceiling windows. Be sure to look up and admire the handsome plaster ceilings. Across the foyer is a 20 ft long dining room, certainly large enough for all those memorable holiday and entertaining moments. This room could even do double duty for homeschooling! Make your way down an adorable hallway into a stylishly updated eat-in kitchen with all stainless-steel appliances, granite countertops, tile backsplash, painted cabinets, wide plank bamboo flooring and the most magnificent view of your park-like back yard. A laundry room, and bedroom with ensuite full bath complete this floor. This main floor bedroom could easily be used for a private home office. Don't miss the 3 pantry closets, abundance of closet space for all your storage needs, including built-in dressers in the second-floor primary bedroom closets Continuing to the second floor, you find 3 more bedrooms and a full bath. Need to find your way to the kitchen for a midnight snack? Take the cleverly placed back staircase and no one will know! Finally, make your way to the third-floor widow's watch and be sure to peer out the windows of this unique space. What will it be? An art studio, music studio, playroom? You choose! The heating system includes two zoned hot water baseboard heat (very comfy.) The home sits on a .7-acre park-like setting on a corner lot which is sub-dividable. This home is in good condition but is being sold, as is, with inspections for buyer information only. Sellers are offering a one year home warranty. The community itself is a picturesque small town from another time that sits at the intersection of the Delaware River and the original Chesapeake and Delaware Canal. It's easy to imagine the barges and steamers that transported passengers and goods between Baltimore and Philadelphia in the 1800's. The city boasts a lively downtown area with a scenic waterfront park, restaurants, stores, and craft shops. A paved bike and hiking trail reaches all the way from downtown, across Delaware, to Chesapeake City, Maryland. Bikers and pedestrians from the region flock here in the summer. You can kayak or boat in to the municipal dock right on the main street and enjoy waterfront shopping and dining. The town is 3 miles off Delaware Route 1, within 30 minutes of all employment centers in New Castle County and is only 45 minutes from Philly International Airport and an hour and twenty minutes to the Delaware beaches.
