American author Henry Van Dyke writes, “Every house where love abides, and friendship is a guest, is surely home, and home sweet home, for there the heart can rest.” Love, friendship, and rest are evident throughout this William H. Marcus & Son custom-built and lavishly appointed “home sweet home” located in the well-established community of Chesterfield, in the Appoquinimink School District. Delightfully sophisticated, yet endlessly comfortable, this sumptuously upgraded, hipped-roof Georgian-style residence has all the charms of a stately country home. The thoughtfully landscaped 2-acre parcel and truly handsome facade only hint at the many visual pleasures this home has to offer. You cannot escape the generous application of expert millwork including layered crown molding of assorted design, triangular door surrounds, magnificent wainscoting, tray ceilings, chair rails, transoms, and Palladian windows. A spectacular array of custom built-ins includes an L-shaped window seat with storage drawers in the enviable ALL NEW custom kitchen featuring an abundance of fine cabinetry, a center island with a breakfast bar, and notable stainless-steel appliances, all highlighted by perfectly placed recessed, under-mount, and pendant lighting. Additional main-level highlights include the traditional generously sized living room currently serving as a home office, a prominent formal dining room, a family room with fireplace, and a discretely located powder room. Not to be overlooked, the two-story entry foyer features a turned staircase with an open balustrade leading to the upper-level owner’s suite which provides a private, enchanting, and serene space that is generously filled with all the expected. Three additional bedrooms and a shared hall bath with a shower tub and a large double vanity complete the second level. A delightful Cinderella room charms visitors at the upper-most position, and a full, finished lower level provides an inviting retreat to family and friends alike. Significant upgrades between 2020 and 2022 include a new well, a new roof, and new HVAC. Besides the two attached garages, this remarkable property includes a detached three-car garage with living space above and can accommodate a variety of needs.
