WILMINGTON, DE Home for Sale!



5 Beds

6 Baths

5 full, 2 half

Inspired by the c.1800 home of the E.I. DuPont family located at the neighboring Hagley property, this stunning Georgian estate is situated in an unrivaled, private and serene setting on 2+ acres in Greenville, surrounded by acres of Eleutherian Mills and Hagley Foundation and Christ Church lands. Built in 1993, this home is a showcase of quality craftsmanship, thoughtful design, and spacious, light-filled rooms allowing views of the beautiful surrounding landscape from nearly every room. Handsome hardwood flooring and custom cabinetry are found throughout the home. The main floor features an impressive eat-in kitchen with a brick hearth fireplace warming the breakfast area, a large central island, recessed lighting, and plenty of cabinet storage and work space. The dining room can be accessed from the kitchen through the butler's pantry. Open to the kitchen, the family room presents a masterpiece of a stone hearth made from local Brandywine Blue Rock mined from the property, vaulted ceiling, wet bar, and French Doors leading to the rear deck overlooking the quietly meandering mill race, Squirrel Run, lending the estate its nickname, "Squirrel Run Crossing". The study also features French Doors to the rear deck, and is located off the family room, adjacent to the formal living room and a conveniently located powder room. Completing the first floor, off the kitchen, is a tiled sunroom, and an additional pantry/work/office space, a second powder room, the laundry room, and access to the three-car garage. Upstairs are four bedrooms, each with its own full bath, including the master suite, as well as a walk-in cedar closet, and walk-up access to the unfinished attic. Accessed by an exterior door, or through the garage, is a complete above-garage apartment with living room, kitchen, full bath, bedroom, and laundry hook-up, providing many options as a guest or in-law suite, multi-generational living, or an au-pair suite. Being sold "as-is" in an estate sale, this property provides a truly one-of-a-kind opportunity to live in the most desirably located, picturesque, and idyllic setting in greater Wilmington's historic Chateau Country.
