Arguably the finest home in all of Quaker Hill, this historic, 3BR, 2.1BA has been meticulously maintained and enhanced by the same owners for over forty years. Now it's time for new owners to enjoy this one-of-a-kind property! Prepare to be wowed from the moment you step into the foyer that featur...es crushed marble repurposed from the original marble floor from 1868. Beautiful, wide plank floors against the solid brick wall and fireplace (gas) create the perfect welcome into this incredible home. Walking straight back youâll find a delightful dining space to the right before entering the fully upgraded, galley kitchen complete with gas stove oven, eat-in breakfast bar, stainless steel appliances and a built-in wine cooler just in time for entertaining this summer. Speaking of entertaining, the kitchen sliders (Pella) open up to a private, walled courtyard made of imported, antique brick which includes a corner fireplace - perfect for entertaining in any season! Walking up the first set of stairs youâll see the original railing spindles from 1868 restored to perfection. Both rooms on this 2nd floor include all-wood crown molding and inlaid trim along with 6-panel wood doors, hardwoods and plenty of storage. One of the many conversation items are sure to be the exposed sections on top two level floors which consist of a double-layer, heavy duty plexiglass set atop the original 4x12â wood beams (thicker than your average wood floor!). The top floor owners suite boasts a full bathroom with sunken cast iron tub, skylight, dual sinks and high end Kohler products. Recent updates include a new roof, brand new (high efficiency) hot water heater and many other creature comforts such as a USB outlet at the kitchen bar, newer basement laundry and much, much more. The basement update was designed to serve as a wine cellar with its brick walls, fireplace (electric), temperature regulation and a 1/2 bath hidden by a pocket door. Local attractions and mainstays such as the Jack A. Markell Trail, Joseph R. Biden, Jr. Railroad Station (Wilmington Amtrak), The Queen, Playhouse, Delaware Tech & Community College, and Delaware College of Art & Design) are all within a short walk.
