Situated on 4.641 acres this 200+ year old home has retained much of its original charm and character with its original millwork, wood doors with period hardware, deep window sills, rich classic moldings and fixtures, and wide-plank wood floors. Proceed up a winding driveway to find this beautiful stone Colonial. Enter through the covered stone porch that runs the length of the oldest part of the house into the welcoming foyer/front room with corner fireplace. Stunning views through thoughtfully placed windows throughout the home overlook the lush surroundings. Continue through to the stair hall, once the original living room, featuring a turned staircase to the second level. To the right enter the large dining room with sprawling fireplace. A large open kitchen sits beyond the dining room with Morning room and mudroom leading to covered entrance to newer oversized 2-car garage. A laundry room and small sunroom, perfect for wintering plants, sit off of the kitchen. To the left of the stair hall pass a powder room and enter the sprawling family room added at a later date, with intricate wood details, built-in shelving, exposed beams and a large fireplace. Beyond this find the private and peaceful sunroom with walls of windows. Access the second floor from any of three staircases (family room, hall, and kitchen). Here find 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms 3 of which are Jack-and-Jill, allowing for easy access or privacy. A master suite features a dressing room and updated bath with large tiled shower and marble-topped vanities and a private office completes this level. A small hidden staircase leads to the carpeted third floor, perfect for a play room or storage. At the rear of the house find a serene terrace bordered by three sides of the house and a low stone wall, making it perfect for summer entertaining. A separate bank barn sits further down the winding drive with 2 bays above and 2 below. This historic gem sits in the heart of Greenville, close to Rt 52, downtown Wilmington and the Philadelphia airport.
