Description

Even before the signing of the Declaration of Independence, the Gunning Bedford House was home to some of the first patriots of what would become the United States of America. It was also home to two Delaware Governors. One of the oldest residences in the town, its location is within walking distance of three restaurants, the Delaware River waterfront and city park. New Castle, DE, was founded in 1651. The New York Times described it as “one of the most picturesque, historical, and dignified 18th century towns in the country with masterpieces of 18 century architecture.” Ruda, May 17, 2002. The Gunning Bedford House is one of these.

The Gunning Bedford House is three stories with an exceptional entry hall (36’x12’) and carved staircases to the third floor. Meticulously maintained, the 5,400 square foot home features original floors, exquisite woodworking and 10 fireplaces. The first floor has one formal living room, 2 sitting rooms, dining room, and kitchen (Smallbone, England).The second floor offers an in-law kitchen, one parlor, two bedrooms and two full baths. The third floor has two bedrooms, a full bath and utility/laundry room. Another laundry room is in the basement.

The first floor is ideal for entertaining as is the large brick patio. Behind the patio is a back garden currently featuring two tree peonies, four peony bushes, three cut leaf maples, two Dogwoods, and an assortment of flowering trees.

New Castle is two miles south of the Delaware Memorial Bridge. Using the Amtrak Metroliner, you can get to New York City or Washington DC in 90 minutes. I-95 is accessed at the Delaware Memorial Bridge.
