Description

This unique L-shaped property is a 0.2681 acre lot (11,682.4 ft 2) in the city of Wilmington (a perfect size and shape for outdoor events). Mature and well maintained wooded lot with Ornamental Cherry, Crab Apple, Walnut, Oak, Pine, Beech, Dogwood, and Holly Trees; and, even a Cedar Grove for summer shade and breezes and privacy. Shrubs and azeleas in the front. Hedge in back. Hostas surround the heated three season porch and along one boundary line. Two fruit bearing Raspberry and Blackberry patches. Brick Patio from Kitchen door. This all-brick, three story, detached, four bedroom house is bright and sunny in winter, yet shady with cross breezes in summer from mature growth trees front and back. Solid oak hardwood flooring in every room of the first floor (including the three season porch) and the second floor. Carpeting on the third (Maid’s Quarters). Gas heating system and gas kitchen stove for efficient cooking. Mosaic Tile on exterior front porch. Private driveway with established boundary line alongside the house accommodates four vehicles. The 9′ foot high ceilings and square design are accented by a gracious entry foyer and turned oak staircase. Living Room has operational fireplace with lock down stove for supplemental heat or entertainment (great in winter!). Formal Dining Room faces back yard for greenery and privacy, as does the Eat-In Kitchen. All solid oak cabinets and porcelain sink. Foldout ironing board alongside built in cabinet/pantry. Two additional Kitchen Utility Closets for storage and everyday use. (One closet converted to Washer/Dryer hookup.) Basement has Laundry Chute (from 2nd floor, thru Kitchen) and one half bathroom in same area as Washer/Dryer. Copper tubing throughout. Located one block from Salesianum High School, this Wilmington house has it’s own driveway (not a shared driveway) that accommodates four vehicles for off-street parking alongside the house. Quiet neighborhood just blocks from I-95 for fast access by car or bus to all major destinations (Concord Mall, Newark, Philadelphia). It is a fifteen minute walking distance to downtown Wilmington and Trolley Square either through Brandywine Park (State maintained) or around it. Minutes by car to the Riverfront. Complete and Ready to Go. Nothing to Fix or Repair in this Turnkey House!
