About This Old House

Beautiful 5 bedroom, historic stone Craftsman home on a hilltop hiding behind a stone wall on a wooded and professionally landscaped lot in Brandywine Hundred. Once the home of S. Marston Fox, the driving force behind nearby Fox Point State Park. Drive up the hill and around the circular driveway toward the stone carriage house with studio above and be amazed by the private front yard oasis. Enter the home through the welcoming covered porch into the center hallway and first floor with 9.5′ ceilings. The wainscoted dining room has a bay window with cozy window seat and oak pocket doors. Straight ahead through a heavy oak door, enter the gracious screened porch that is wonderful for entertaining and relaxing. To the left of the hall, through heavy oak pocket doors, enter the living room featuring a one of a kind mantel with decorations by famous local artist and neighbor of the original owner, Robert Shaw of Penny Hill. Adjacent to the living room is a sunroom/office with large windows and gorgeous views of the front yard. The updated kitchen features granite counters and island, hammered copper sink, oak cabinets, and access to the butler’s pantry with copper sink and additional storage space. The restored powder room has an original wood privacy door inside. Up the magnificent oak stairway, you will find 5 bedrooms with oak trim and doors, as well as 8.5′ ceilings. The master bedroom connects to one of the bedrooms and can be used as a nursery or dressing room. A hall bath has original pressed metal walls and a clawfoot tub. The 3rd floor offers a large finished space that can be used as a bonus room, office, or master bedroom (there is room for a full bath to be added). A 3rd floor balcony beckons you to pause and enjoy the magnificent views of the backyard. The original carriage house has a renovated studio with wood stove. Enjoy the fire pit on cool evenings and garden rooms on warm sunny days. A rustic pond near the kitchen door adds a peaceful touch to the gardens. Seller is offering 1 year comprehensive home warranty (value $549).
