Stately Chicago Prairie style Foursquare up on a hill overlooking Hockessin along with a 4-bay detached garage - all on large acre+ lot. The "Foursquare" was the most popular style that emerged from the suburban development of the early 1900's through the 1930's. Its hipped roof, broad eaves, as well as the porch balustrades echo elements seen in the designs of Frank Lloyd Wright and other prominent Chicago School architects. Most of the original features are still here such as the arts and crafts detailing, especially in the massive entrance hall with the turned stairs tucked off to the side and includes built-in shelving. Large bay windows are in the living room along with a brick wood-burning fireplace. The kitchen has been remodeled with cherry cabinets and Corian countertops. 2 full baths have been remodeled. A large sunroom addition with cathedral ceiling and gas fireplace was added off of the kitchen. Most windows have been replaced with Anderson wood/aluminum clad double hung windows. Upstairs is four bedrooms plus an office. The master bedroom also has a bay window. Walkup 3rd floor could be additional bedrooms. The location is superb and the specimen trees are spectacular, especially the weeping cherry. This house just needs a history buff to bring it back to its full grandeur. All systems are in working order. House can be lived in while you give it a facelift.
