ATTENTION HISTORY LOVERS! **National Register of Historic Places** This quaint, Victorian style historic building is situated in a prime location once known as “Clark’s Corner” in the small community of Harrington. Best known for being home of The Delaware State Fair, Harrington also offers an abundance of surrounding new business ventures such as florists, antique boutiques, cafes, and local family owned businesses. This one-of-a-kind building was the original First National Bank of Harrington and still has the “Old World” character of its initial design. An ornate wooden double door with a half-moon transom is accented with hand forged iron and welcomes you into a generous open room with high ceilings — absolutely perfect for a converted living space. There is beautiful natural lighting throughout, and ample storage areas, closets, nooks, shelves, and counter space. The upper level loft area is perfect for privacy, and has endless potential to be utilized as a bedroom or office space. This property was recently hand painted and sealed on the exterior, and the roof was replaced in 2016. Beautiful floor to ceiling windows encased in wood with corner medallions were replaced about six years ago. Premium designer ceiling fans are included and the property boasts entirely updated electric and a half bath on the main level. Situated on a corner lot in the heart of Harrington, local boutiques, salons and restaurants are all just a short walk away. Better yet, there is ample, free parking around the corner, at the post office, alongside the railway fence and directly in front of the building.
