Property Description

Welcome to this charming, three-story, 4/5 bedroom home where character stuns with gorgeous oak pocket doors, quaint back stairs, and original stained glass transoms. The front porch provides the perfect space for coffee or visiting with friends in the warm sun. From here you can see your tree blossom pink in the Spring as Clematis climbs the mailbox. As you enter the large living room, you are greeted by recently refinished hardwood floors and lots of natural light. The formal dining room is a great space for entertaining or could be opened up to the kitchen for a more modern-day open layout. The eat-in kitchen is large on its own with a built-in microwave, gas stove, and access to an enclosed rear porch and your very own organic, forageable backyard – strawberries and raspberries, wildflowers, lilacs, sage, daylilies, lavender, roses - and is flat and fenced in and ready for your fun! The second level is where you will find the primary bedroom with original copper fitted wardrobes, hall full bathroom, 3 more good size bedrooms, all with ceiling fans, and stairs to the large third-level space perfect for a 5th bedroom, home office, playroom, craft room, etc. with a walk-in storage area. The large, unfinished basement includes ample space for laundry, work, & storage and the double-wide driveway provides off-street parking for 4 cars. The seller has gone to great lengths to make sure the home is ready for its next owner with electric and plumbing all recently vetted/updated and HVAC maintained and zoned to provide better heat on the second level. Home comes with a $10K water treatment system that simply needs servicing. This awesome home is one block from the elementary school with quick access to I-95/495 and PHL airport! Public transportation (bus and train), dog park, library, post office, grocery, ice cream, Claymont Cheesesteaks, Primo Hoagies, private high school, bank, Christiana Care, and Community Center are all within a few blocks and soon the area will have a brand new transportation hub with retail space that is expected to be a benefit for property owners.
