This 5 Bedroom 2.5 Bath Home has been Lovingly Restored and Renovated with the Original Random Width Hardwood Planking, Post & Beam Ceiling and Deep Window Sills Still Intact. Each Room has a History of its Own. The Colonial Revival Addition’s Wooden Plank Floors were Brought in from Another Period Home in Pennsylvania. The Parlor Reflects the Simplicity and Charm Through the Original Brick Hearth Remains that Flank the Single Fireplace Indicating its Origin of Separate Rooms and 2 Fireplaces. A Quaint Study with its Handsome Desk and Built in Cabinetry Replaced the Original Kitchen. In the 1970’s the Current Kitchen was Constructed. Paneling, Hand Built Cabinets and Doorways were Made from the Wood of the Original Barn. The Beams Came from the Old Chicken Coop and the Brick Floors from the Streets of Downtown Wilmington, Delaware Bringing Additional Character to this Home.
