Back on the MARKET! Buyerâs lost employment just before closing. There were 5 offers on this property last time!! This classic American Foursquare home sits on a gorgeous double lot just a block away from Delmar Middle and High School in the quaint town of Delmar, DE. This 4 bedroom 1.5 bath home... has been loving owned by the same family for 60+ years and is being sold to settle the Estate of Ernest and Clara Larmore. The American Foursquare is house style popular from the mid-1890s to the late 1930s. A reaction to the ornate and mass-produced elements of the Victorian and other Revival styles popular throughout the last half of the 19th century, the American Foursquare was plain, often incorporating handcrafted "honest" woodwork . This style incorporates elements of the Prairie School and the Craftsman styles and was designed to maximize space on a city lot. Because of it's non-ornate construction, it lends perfectly well to renovations towards modern clean line syles popular today! Enjoy the huge front porch updated with maintenance free decking and low rise steps. Inside the first floor offers 9' ceilings, a large living room that spans the whole front width of the house, with beautiful brick fireplace and mantle area, built in shelving, and the attractive stair case leading upstairs . The fireplace has never been in use per the owners memory. The living room is open to the graciously sized dining room and both showcase beautiful newly refinished hardwood floors. Just off the dining room is a large enclosed porch with heat, access to the front porch and a rear door to the back yard. The cozy kitchen features newer appliances including stainless stove and dishwasher, LG french door refrigerator, and quick rear step access to the main staircase. Conveniently located off the kitchen is a laundry room and half bath combined. Also a hallway access to the 2 car garage and attached shed! Tons of storage in this space and easy access to the home without going outside! Between the kitchen and dining room is a storage room with trap door access to the basement. The large door opens easily and is secured to the wall for access to basement steps. Tons more storage space in the unfinished basement, and the location of the furnace and hot water heater. Upstairs you find 4 bedrooms all with good proportions and wood floors, closets, and a variety of built in shelves and desk areas. Some wood floors have just been sanded and painted for a modern farmhouse style look and to show the potential. Others still have carpeting on top of the wood but could be easily removed. One full bathroom upstairs services the area and has been updated with a newer tub, toilet and heat lamp. Hallway access to the massive attic is just off of the 2nd floor foyer.
