904 BARLEY MILL ROAD, WILMINGTON, DE
4 Full, 1 Half Baths
An amazingly beautiful, well-constructed and meticulously maintained home like this does not come on the market often. As you drive up to the main entrance which is on Overbrook Road, you will notice the incredible curb appeal of the grey stone and arched windows. From the wide foyer and staircase to the size and scope of all the rooms, everything about this timeless 1939 home designed by noted architects Wallace & Warner, speaks high quality. As you enter the grand foyer, you will notice the details from the banister trim work to the crown moldings, the carved mantlepiece and the incredible arched windows. The original owners elected every option including the extended bay window in the back of the living room overlooking the spacious yard and pool. The attached sunroom continues with the arched windows and French doors including screens, and featuring the original grotto floor. The wide and deep foyer also provides immediate access to the fully stone patio in the back of the home. To the left of the foyer you’ll find an entry way with a large coat closet with built in drawers to be envied. From there find a butler’s pantry also accessed by a side door, in which a mudroom area could be created. This leads to a spacious dining room with deep windows also overlooking the back yard. The kitchen to the left includes a highly sought after high-end AGA oven and side by side Sub Zero freezer/refrigerator.
Off the kitchen is a back staircase to the 2nd floor and also access to the basement. The kitchen has exterior access to another patio area including a goldfish pond water feature! The attached family room includes a wood burning masonry fireplace. Behind that is the two car garage with front and back garage doors.
As you take the grand turned staircase to the 2nd floor, pause on the landing and admire the beautiful view through the arched window. Upstairs find 4 generous bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The primary suite is enormous with 3 closets and a large 4-piece bathroom. A 2nd large bedroom also accesses that bathroom or another large hall bathroom, creating multiple options for primary residents and guests. To the right of the main staircase landing is a 3rd bedroom which leads to a dressing room and from there the back staircase to a private suite. Currently used as an office, this 4th bedroom likely would have been the servant or nanny’s room with included efficient bathroom and multiple storage options in the eaves.
At the 2nd floor landing you’ll find a sweet closet with enclosed cabinets where you continue to appreciate some of the many details chosen by the original owners. Take the wide stairs up to the 3rd floor. You’ll find a generous 5th bedroom with yet another large en-suite bathroom. But that’s not all. Here you will also find abundant amazing storage. One closet holds the central air conditioning unit with room to spare. There are 3 more closets with the detail of enclosed lidded cabinets you could never find in a new construction home!
The basement level is unfinished, very large and dry with storage closets, room for a workshop, washer/dryer and a half bath with new toilet/sink.
The exterior of the home is incomparable. The grey stone carries throughout. The fieldstone patio can hold numerous people at your best parties and overlooks the lower yard, gardens and pool. The pool is graced by a stone pool house that matches the home. The perennial gardens that surround the property are beautiful. Next spring you may lose count of the varieties of peonies and hydrangeas! The roof is Gerard Shake Steel and carries a limited 50 year warranty!
This 1.36 acre, 4550 sq ft home is in a wonderful neighborhood called Westover Hills Woods, a community of 45 stone and brick homes with easy access to all parts of Greenville, the new shopping center opening in October, downtown Wilmington and Chester County.
