Description

A beautifully-restored 1920's carriage house in the heart of Wilmington's historic Highlands is offered. This one-of-a kind home features a meticulously designed and crafted kitchen; a floor plan that hosts game nights as easily as it does executive holiday parties; and a three-season porch that opens to beautiful fenced grounds that can accommodate everything from touch football to elegant cocktail hours. Rustic Contemporary elegance like this in the heart of Wilmington is hard to find, particularly when located in the shadows of Rockford Park, Trolley Square and the Delaware Art Museum. Enter through a custom designed front door into large open foyer with beautiful exposed beams. The kitchen offers a unique granite and walnut countertop, accented by custom, sustainable wood cabinets, a stone chimney, wood stove, stone backsplash, and Dacor and Sub Zero appliances. French doors from the kitchen lead to a three season sunroom and patio with built in barbecue. The large dining room has custom built cabinetry and space for large dinner parties. Stroll back down the foyer and enter an area that is as spacious as it is versatile. This room can be as flexible as you imagine it to be: A majestic library with a fireplace and garden access; game room and entertainment center; or a peaceful respite with direct views of the home's beautiful landscaped surroundings. Opposite of the foyer sits a warm and comfortable living room with exposed beams and subtle lighting. Follow the iron railed steps to three large bedrooms with plentiful closets. The primary bedroom suite features French doors, wooden beams, custom shutters, a large sitting area, his and her custom closets, and a connected laundry room. The primary bath reflects the feel and style of the entire home: top quality granite, wood & masonry all in a rustic arts and crafts style. The other three spacious rooms have their own unique charm befitting of the home. Completing the 2nd floor is a large office with a closet and direct views into the wooded grounds below - Can be converted easily to a 5th bedroom! Completing this home is a generously-sized fenced in lot with landscaping that allows for privacy as well as an oversized two-car garage and plenty of driveway parking. Nurtured for years, this is a rare combination of charm, craftsmanship and history, full of openness and warmth. Minutes to major routes of public transportation leading to Philly, DC, NYC and beyond.
