Monthly Estimate* How much can I afford?

When asked what they loved about their home, the owners said they have never tired of beautiful views of the woods, and of Red Clay Creek and Valley which change with the seasons. The home is beginning to burst into its spring foliage show now and you will soon see the extensive landscaping and natural beauty to be found all around and through the large picture windows. You might envision your garden outside, or life nestled in a chair fireside or window side watching nature at its best. There are decks on three sides of the home, all visited by beautiful area birds, plus a fully screened porch for comfortable outdoor dining and relaxing. You can relax inside, or outside. And on weekends, you might hear the occasional whistle of the Wilmington Western historic train as it leaves Hockessin for Greenbank Mills. If your dream is a home that feels like you're already on vacation, this may be your next home. The lower living level, at ground with it's own side entrance has been used as professional office space, second family room, large play room & could be used as an exercise room - There are lots of possibilities for various uses, with separate storage rooms. There is also a large workshop room with double door exit to the side lawn, that is perfect for anyone with a serious hobby to pursue. The entire home features open floor plans, there are hardwoods through most of the main and upper levels, and it's a perfect home for privacy & relaxing, but also large group entertaining. The dining area has been used for as many as 22 guests seated comfortably. If you love gardens/gardening , walking, biking, the arts, it's all here, or nearby: * Established area for vegetable garden as well as open area for play * Walking distance to the Overseas Trail (on Snuff Mill Rd), the Center for the Creative Arts, Dew Point Brewery on Rt 82/Creek Rd. and so many other activities that the Yorklyn and Hockessin community offers (check out Yorklyn.org) * It is only minutes drive to the Ashland Nature Center, the Magic Age of Steam Museum, Mt Cuba and Observatory, the Delaware Natural History Museum, Winterthur and Longwood Gardens
