This wonderful historic farmhouse built in 1816 on its .74 acre lot has been updated without sacrificing its charm. From the time you enter the natural light-filled home, the details are intriguing, and there is a warm feeling. Lots of hardwood floors and woodwork in this 4275 sq. ft. home! To the left of the entrance hall is the breakfast room and state-of-the-art kitchen with its granite countertops and multitude of cabinets. Looking to the right is the staircase that goes upstairs. There are steps down to the living room with its wonderful stone fireplace and original beams. Steps up from the living room lead to the dining room. Straight ahead from the hallway is a huge family room with almost a whole wall of sliders to the outside patio and yard. This area is all open to the kitchen, so there is wonderful flow for entertaining. A powder room behind an office area completes the first floor. Upstairs leads to 4 good-sized bedrooms and 2 baths. All of the bedrooms have good closet storage. The primary bath has been newly remodeled. Up another set of steps to another bedroom and the walk-in attic. Downstairs leads to the large finished basement with its outside entrance. The location is great—close to Hockessin and Newark, to say nothing of Philadelphia and Baltimore.
