Property Description

There is so much to appreciate in this lovely home, located in the Heart of Historic New Castle! A two and a half story brick front home that dates to the 19th Century, half a block from the town Green. The formal living room has a high ceiling, crown molding, and a marble surround gas fireplace as its focal point. The living room opens to a formal dining room ( presently used as an additional sitting room ). The kitchen is eat-in and well-equipped, with gas cooking, deep double sinks, lots of counter space and ample cabinetry. There is also a side door from the kitchen, giving access to both the alley to the front sidewalk ( a great convenience ) and the deep rear gardens. The stairs to the second level rise to a large hall and landing area, three bedrooms and a full bath. A wide, straight staircase from the second level takes you to a huge bonus room, easily adapted for a fourth bedroom, office, library or family room. The full basement in this home is a rare find, with workshop space, whitewashed walls, a powder room, and a laundry center with a sink. The home enjoyed a new heater installation in 2015. The living room gas fireplace was recently inspected by ShagrinGas and is ready to fire up on the coming colder days. Fully carpeted, this home likely has wood flooring throughout.You'll have no concerns about flood insurance with this home. It sits outside the 100 and 500 year floodplains! The deep lot reaches Fourth Street and offers the possibility of adding a parking pad at its rear. 128 East Third is steps away from pubs, restaurants, museums, Battery Park and the new pier on the Delaware River. The many amenities and year-round activities to enjoy in Old New Castle include summertime concerts, tall ship visits and tours, an old-time Halloween Parade, a beautiful public library and a post office, all just a short stroll away. The home will be sold "as-is" and consideration for inspections will be given for buyers' informational purposes only. Cherished and cared-for lovingly through generations, this home is ready for its new caretaker, truly offering a great and rare opportunity. If you appreciate old town charm and a strong sense of community, 128 E Third in Historic New Castle is for you! Don't delay to call, text or email and schedule your private tour.
