Property Description

This is one home you must see to fully appreciate the unique features and modern updates of this Quaker Hill home listed on the National Historic Registry. Meticulously maintained and enhanced by the same owners for over forty years, it's now ready for new owners. Prepare to be wowed from the moment you step into the foyer which features crushed marble repurposed from the original marble floor. The living room boasts Bruce flooring that looks brand new along with the brick wall and fireplace (gas) to create the perfect welcome into this incredible home. Located straight back is a delightful, open dining space to the right before entering the fully upgraded, galley kitchen complete with a gas stove oven, eat-in breakfast bar, stainless steel appliances including a built-in wine cooler just in time for entertaining this spring and summer! Speaking of entertaining guests, the kitchen patio door (Pella) slides opens up to a very secluded courtyard featuring an antique brick wall and corner fireplace - perfect for any season! The stairs to the second level feature the original railing spindles from late 1860's restored to perfection. A front facing bedroom provides plenty of storage with built-ins and closets. A private bathroom has been updated to include a vessel sink and updated vanity. Adjacent to this bedroom is now an open den featuring a wood-burning fireplace - the perfect study or sitting room. A top floor owners suite boasts a skylight, cedar closets, a full bathroom with sunken cast iron tub, dual sinks and high grade Kohler commode. Recent updates include a new roof (2021), brand new (high efficiency) hot water heater (2021) and many other creature comforts such as a USB outlet at the kitchen bar, newer basement laundry and much, much more. The updated basement was designed to be a private wine cellar with its brick walls, temperature regulation and a half bath hidden by a pocket door not to mention another fireplace with electric insert controlled by remote. The perfect hideaway in which to relax. Natural light radiates throughout by means of the top floor skylight, multiple windows and plexiglass floor sections on the top and second levels - thicker than the average floor and safe for walking. Located just a short walk or drive is the city's Financial District, Christina Riverfront attractions and dining, Wilmington Amtrak station, The Playhouse, Delaware Tech & Community College, Delaware College of Art & Design, Market Street and more. The historic Quaker Hill area along with much of Wilmington is experiencing a renaissance. Don't miss your opportunity to own this beautiful home at an unbeatable price!
