Description

With its rich past, this completely renovated and enhanced historic Hockessin property is the perfect blend of old house charm and new house amenity. Retaining the landmark property's historical details and character, the front living and dining rooms of the house are steeped in history yet updated and efficient. A thoughtful back addition adds a modern cooks' kitchen with abundant storage and stainless appliances and counters, drenched in light from ceiling height windows. Open to the family room, the spaces share the garden view and heated floors, adjacent to the home office and powder room which could easily be converted to a 1st floor bedroom suite. Second and third floor large bedrooms, en suite, are punctuated with stone and ceramic bathrooms providing modern luxury and comfort. Boosted by outdoor living space, a two-car garage and accessory buildings, the home checks all the boxes, and then some. Preserving the original aesthetic and transformed with a fresh attitude, the property nods to its past with born again beauty.
