Calling all nature enthusiasts, farmhouse lovers, bird-watchers, fisherman, hikers, bikers, and anyone seeking peaceful retreat within close proximity to the amenities of the greater Newark, Wilmington, Chadds Ford, Kennett Square, and West Chester areas. Why drive to the park when you can live there?! This spectacularly cozy custom home which sits on 15 serene acres just adjacent to White Clay Creek Preserve will not disappoint. The original section of this home, C. 1894, was the tenant house for the William C. Passmore Farm and offers a comfortable yet spacious living area with stone fireplace on the main level and two, second story rooms perfect for a master bedroom and dressing/sitting area or nursery. Purchased in 1945 by the current family, this home was lovingly updated and expanded under guidance by renowned architect RC Tindall of Wilmington. The addition includes a bright and airy family room open to a roomy dining area which is flanked by the perfect "country kitchen" where you'll find more beautiful stonework and a half bath. Ascending the beautiful wide hardwood staircase, three more generously sized bedrooms and a full bathroom complete the second floor. The real beauty in this delightful home exists in the natural views one can find gazing out every window or enjoying peaceful mornings with a cup of coffee on the front porch overlooking the Preserve. A small spring and pond situated on side of the home and the rolling acreage behind it provide the opportunity for endless exploration and "bringing nature home". In a location perfect for those looking to commute to the University of Delaware, Downtown Wilmington, and beyond - this property offers something for everyone, make your appointment today!
