Bordering Kennett Pike, the Raskob Foundation and the Brandywine Creek, Brecks Lane is a one-way st...reet with 13 homes that back up to a creek and 3 1/2 acres of open space that is shared by the homeowners and formed the Brecks Lane Association in 1969. This classic 1940's stone colonial offers a circular driveway, detached 2-car garage, charming front porch, in-ground pool, 5 bedrooms & 4.1 baths. The first floor features a spacious living room with built-in cabinetry & shelves and a wood burning fireplace. A large picture window is the focal point of this room providing a stunning view of the rear patios, pool, yard and open space. The large traditional dining room offers plenty of room for holiday gatherings and a French door that leads to the brand-new slate patio. The eat-in kitchen offers an attached breakfast and desk area, peninsula for bar stool seating, stainless-steel Sub-Zero refrigerator, double ovens with convection and a gas range.
