Property Description

Welcome to Buckingham Heights in North Wilmington. This spacious 4/5 bedroom, multi-level home has been meticulously cared for by its current owner. Many updates and upgrades have been established here along the way; including a new heat pump and mini split (2022), whole house generator (2022), gutters and downspouts (2022), new main panel upgrade (2019), water heater (2018) and so much more. As you walk into this traditional layout you'll be amazed at the amount of living and storage space. On this main level is your living room, formal dining room and eat-in kitchen. Down below on the next level is an enormous family room with wood-burning fireplace, powder room and access to the two car, side-entry garage. An unfinished basement is also accessible from this area as well. Upstairs there are three bedrooms on the next level including an en suite space with private bathroom (updated 2010). One more short flight up is another large bonus room and another bedroom with hardwood flooring. Although you may not be able to see.....the rest of the home has hardwood flooring underneath the carpeting, waiting for you to uncover and enjoy. This beautiful home sits upon a third of an acre, has a flat yard and has a great outdoor entertaining place with a large paver patio. Keys make a great 'stocking stuffer' this holiday season. Come make this house your home.
