About This Property

Located on a private, 2.26-acre lot that backs to the Greenville Country Club, this stone 5-bedroom, 4.3 bath home offers a multitude of custom amenities that any homeowner would be pleased to call their own. The private, circular driveway leads you to the lower level covered stone porch and detached, 3-car barn garage. Follow the slate path from the driveway to the front porch which invites you inside to enjoy all the intricate details, starting right at the compass ingrained in the entry foyer hardwood flooring. To the right of the foyer is the library that offers crown moulding, floor-to-ceiling built-in shelving and French doors to the step-down family room. The family room boasts an exquisite, custom bar with detailed millwork designed after an Irish bar, French doors to the side terrace, a pass-through, stone surround, wood-burning fireplace with a reclaimed wood mantle. The adjoining living room has a stone hearth at the pass-through fireplace, additional built-ins that compliment those in the library and French doors that open to the screened-in rear porch that houses a wood-burning fireplace. Adjacent to the living room runs a skylit breezeway with 3 sets of French doors with retractable screens that open to a covered terrace with an outdoor kitchenette and dining area and runs the length of the main level to the laundry room, office, and staircases to the upper and lower levels. The breezeway also connects to the spacious, culinary kitchen. Exposed beams run the length of the kitchen over the butcher block & marble topped center island to the oversized, brick, wood-burning fireplace in the breakfast area. The kitchen is fully equipped with a Wolf 8-burner, commercial, gas range with double oven, SubZero refrigerator, Cuisinart microwave, Décor warming drawer, ice maker and an abundance of custom cabinetry. Meals can be enjoyed around the island, in front of the fireplace of the breakfast area or more formally in the adjoining dining room that hosts a gas fireplace and a butler’s pantry complete with a warming drawer and dumbwaiter to the lower level. The upper-level master suite offers a gas fireplace, built-in shelving with lighting, surround sound, an extraordinary organizational walk-in his/her dressing room and a Waterbury Kitchen & Bath, Inc. 2018 creation in the master bathroom, which is featured in the December 2020 issue of Delaware Today Magazine. This masterpiece includes a private water closet with pocket door, claw-footed soaking tub, Carrera marble walk-in rain shower, double vanity, and towel warmers. This level has 4 additional bedrooms, two of which have in-suite full baths, a full shared hall bath with soaking tub and access to a third level bonus room. The lower level of this home is the perfect spot to entertain guests in the recreation room, game room, home theater or family room with a gas fireplace. This level also offers a home office and a specialty wine vault, as well as a mudroom, a soap-stone pet-washing/plant watering station and radiant heated entry foyer from the stone, driveway level, covered porch. The exterior features of this home are just as enviable as the interior details. From the covered porches, to the open-air terraces, to the sports court and converted loft-to-gym in the detached barn garage, no detail has been left untouched in this amazing home. sbp
