Property Description

Upgrades Galore at 1208 Barksdale Road in the City of Newark! Yes, many terrific updates can be found throughout this Bicentennial-era cape-style home. The new, thoughtful landscaping and truly handsome exterior face of this residence only hint at the many visual pleasures the interior has to offer. The beautiful and practical laminate flooring begins in the foyer and extends throughout most of the house. To your left is a well-sized, open living room adorned with a contemporary neutral wall color and classic trim-molding painted in a crisp white. As with all the windows throughout this near-mint condition house, the bay window in this room is a replacement and super easy to clean. And this is just the beginning! Next, we enter the heart of the house where you will be delighted to find the spacious eat-in kitchen already adorned with a lighted ceiling fan and stainless-steel appliances, benefitting greatly from a well-thought-out design. Recent updates include a new, over-range stainless-steel microwave in 2018, new granite countertops and an undermount stainless-steel sink in 2020, and undermount lighting added to the freshly painted cabinets. All of this is highlighted by a stylish track light with six adjustable shades. A 9-light steel security door leads to a well-sized, newly painted (2020) deck with grill nook and steps down to the regraded vintage patio and expansive flat grassy fenced yard beyond. Wow! Back inside, our tour continues with the two main-level bedrooms featuring wall-to-wall carpeting, ample closet space, and equal access to the updated shared full bath with a hand-held wand in the tub shower. The upper level features two generously sized bedrooms each with new (2017) laminate flooring and walls painted a neutral color. The larger of these two rooms features new (2019) recessed lighting and a lighted ceiling fan. An updated shared hall bath with a new (2020) vanity and sink complete the upper level. Not to be overlooked, the full-sized waterproofed basement with reinforced walls and sump pump is a terrific, bright space and can accommodate a variety of needs. Another significant upgrade to this wonderful home includes the conversion to natural gas with the installation of a new HVAC (new AC, new furnace, humidifier) in the spring of 2019. Raised garden beds, a second patio with a fire pit, the whole house fan that provides added comfort, the large driveway with parking for five, and the proximity to Main Street Newark and the University of Delaware campus (bus stop is only one-quarter mile away) are additional reasons for you to consider this house as your new home. We invite you to schedule your tour now! NOTE: A 3-person Newark rental permit is in place for this property. Notable neighbors include Hill Park and Norma B. Handloff Park.
