Description

A rare find! If you are looking for an historic home and ready to add your personal touch, you will love this wonderful home built 150 years ago. As with all historic properties, it is now time for a new owner; one who can appreciate not only the past, but also has a vision for the future and the ability to recognize and capture the potential that this property holds. Sitting on almost two nicely landscaped acres you are welcomed by a spacious front porch leading into the home which has character beyond belief; spacious and gracious - just waiting for a buyer to take it through yet another century. When you enter through the foyer you will notice the original wide pine floors, 10' ceilings, deep windowsills and original millwork throughout most of the home. The first floor features a huge family room, a living room, a dining room and a very large, modern kitchen with a breakfast room and patio doors to a brick patio. The foyer stairs lead up to the second floor where you will find four spacious bedrooms and a full bath with a claw foot tub. Another set of stairs leads up to two bonus rooms tucked away in the third floor which could potentially be two more bedrooms. So much potential! The large yard has mature trees and plantings. The detached garage has a second floor which could serve as a studio or workshop plus there is a shed with water and electric. Great location near the Auburn Heights Preserve, and a very short walk to the center of Hockessin!
