September 18, 2018

I love all of the exposed beams and the rich looking wood! Kitchen needs some work as do the bathrooms, but it’s a neat looking house! Built in 1920. This cape cod style home is on a large corner lot across from Gild Hall in Wilmington, Delaware. Located on .61 acres. That is a really nice sunroom! Three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 2,348 square feet. $240,000

From the Zillow listing:


This Arden home has steampunk or cottage allure with its architectural wood details found throughout the home in trims, beams, wall coverings, closets, & stairs. This 3b/3Ba cape cod on corner lot is directly across from Gild Hall. From the front porch enter the foyer & find the main floor bedroom with fireplace, full bath, & dressing area. Across the foyer are the formal dining room (could be a fourth bedroom), large eat-in kitchen, main floor laundry, another full bath, & a grand great room featuring exposed beams, cathedral ceiling, fireplace, bright natural light from the many windows. The 2nd bath on the main floor offers a walk-in tiled shower. Step out to enjoy the front sunroom and patio. Upstairs stop by the saloon or the office with built-in bookshelves & window boxes. Rounding out this floor are two nicely sized bedrooms & a full bath. Arden has a single tax/land rent which pays county, property and school taxes and includes trash and recycling pick up, snow removal, and maintains the woods, greens, and roads of an open space community. This home has loads of potential & awaits the style and personality of its new owner(s).
