Property Description

A prominent name and a superb location really do matter. Here is a great opportunity to live in a generously sized, four-bedroom, three-full-bath, center-hall Colonial-style home perfectly nestled on a beautifully landscaped cul-de-sac lot in the enviable community of Nonantum Mills adjacent to Paper Mill Rd and just minutes from Limestone Rd, Newark’s popular Main Street, and the Delaware state border with both Maryland and Pennsylvania. A quick web search will provide an interesting history from which the community draws its significance. Let’s begin with the front. The handsome brick-and-vinyl clapboard exterior hints at the happy marriage of an old-world style and contemporary amenities. A concrete walk leads from the recently sealed driveway (2022) to the imposing entrance showcasing a factory-glazed front door and matching shutters, installed in 2018. Andersen windows were installed throughout the residence in 2015. A new layer of roofing was added in 2010, and 2008 saw the installation of gutter guards for the entire house. Let’s continue around to the back and discover what really sets this address apart. The bucolic view immediately draws your attention outward to the deciduous wood and upward to the magnificent backdrop that is the Newark Reservoir: 112 grassy acres of parkland encircled by a 1.8-mile paved walking trail, declared forever wild space, never to be developed. At this point, we invite you to turn your gaze toward the house and ample yard and relish the spectacular custom landscape installation by Borsello Landscaping of Hockessin. There is much to be excited about, including a circular stone patio, lattice for climbing plants and added privacy, a defined dog area, a shade garden, and various beds all permanently outlined with pavers. After a few minutes of visual exploration, we take the stairs of the easy-care landing deck through the French door into the main-level family room. This comfortable space includes a tasteful lighted ceiling fan and a handsome floor-to-ceiling wood-burning brick fireplace with a raised hearth, a stylish glass cabinet door, a substantial mantel, and a strip of crown molding at the top. The adjacent eat-in kitchen provides many benefits to a new buyer, including Corian countertops, lots of wood cabinets, a dual-bowl sink with a new (2022) disposal, coordinated white appliances, a microwave cubby, a pantry with extra cupboards, a breakfast space with an unobstructed view of the rear oasis, a storage bench under the side-by-side double-hung windows, and a Corian-topped center island with a bronze-finish three-lite fixture above! Following the builder’s floorplan for the Grand Amsterdam, our tour continues to the service hall featuring a full-size laundry room with a practical pocket door, a utility sink, and a new exterior door added to this useful space in 2016, a full bathroom with a stall shower, a 12 x 11 corner room with a closet that currently serves as a home office but could easily be a fifth bedroom, and finally, access to the attached two-car, front-facing garage. The traditional formal living room, formal dining room, and open foyer at the entry complete the sprawling main level. A straight staircase leads to the upper level with its spacious, primary bedroom suite featuring a huge walk-in closet, a dressing area with a large wall-to-wall mirror above the double vanity, and a separate enclosure for the stall shower and toilet. Three well-sized secondary bedrooms, a hall closet for clothing storage, and a hall bath with a shower tub and a large vanity complete the upper level. Not to be overlooked, the tidy, full-sized basement featuring built-in storage shelves and a sump pump (2018) is also a big plus and can accommodate a variety of needs. Additional highlights include a new hot-water heater with an automatic shutoff valve in 2018, a new furnace and air-conditioning system in 2020, a water-filtration system, and a main water shutoff valve installed in 2020.
