Set on a wide, tree-lined street in the highly desirable Highlands, this charming home has been lovingly renovated. A gracious front porch, with wide columns, brick steps and floor, and a tongue and groove ceiling, provides a taste of the charm that lies within the house. As you enter the living room, a wood-burning fireplace with a brick surround invites you into the room which has an abundance of unique windows and lots of natural light. Like all the rooms in the home, the living room boasts hardwood floors, solid wood doors and trim, and warm color tones, making it a delight. Step through the double French doors that lead from the living room into the large dining room, which is a great space for entertaining, and is conveniently adjacent to the family room and kitchen. A separate hallway leads from the living room through the pantry to the kitchen. The pantry has built-in cherry cabinetry, an eight foot decorative bulletin board, and the door to the first floor powder room. The renovated kitchen is a cook’s dream. The Giorgi kitchen has 42” shaker-style cherry cabinets, a black granite countertop and backsplash, excellent cabinet storage, a Dacor duel-fuel range, a new GE Monogram Asko dishwasher with cherry wood paneling, a stainless steel KitchenAid refrigerator and a GE Profile microwave. From the kitchen you can enter the family room, which overlooks the spacious back yard through its oversize windows. The family room is a great casual gathering spot and includes a built-in cherry desk and cabinets, a gas-burning fireplace with slate surround, a custom cabinet for the TV, handsome, custom-built bookcases, and a double-French door leading to the back yard. A turned staircase leads from the living room to a hall and three spacious bedrooms. The primary bedroom features cathedral ceilings, custom built-in shelves and drawers, a 8x7 walk-in closet with a window and closet organizer, and an en-suite bathroom that includes a jacuzzi tub, a large tiled shower stall, and built-in linen cabinets and shelves; the room also features 3 windows overlooking the open back yard. The second bedroom includes a walk-in closet, and adjoining bathroom, and more expansive, charming windows. The third bedroom is perfect as a guest bedroom, but would also be a great office or den. Back downstairs, you will find a partially finished, carpeted basement, that includes a half-bath, closets and cabinets, an exit to the back yard, and a laundry area complete with a laundry shoot to receive laundry from the second floor. The basement is a large a wonderful space for a play room, exercise room, bonus room, or more. The spacious, flat backyard is accessed from the family room and is a another fabulous space for entertaining. The yard was professionally landscaped by Wallace Landscape, and includes flagstone walks, a pergola and patio, and is a great place to relax with family and friends. The green lawn is perfect for backyard games, and there is a shed with electricity for extra storage and a dedicated grilling area. A bonus is that this city-home has driveway parking, as well as an extra-wide street for additional parking. This home has amazing storage with a walk-up attic and lots of built-ins. The materials and craftsmanship in this home are outstanding! Conveniently located within blocks of Rockford Park, there is easy access to downtown Wilmington, Trolley Square, Greenville, I-95, and Route 202 plus walking, hiking, and cycling in the area parks! Houses like this don’t come on the market frequently; fairy-tale charm with high-quality, thoroughly modern updates.
