This stunning classic brick colonial home is set on a private lot cul-de-sac and was modeled after the Joseph Howard Hennage House of Williamsburg, VA. The exterior is made of genuine Cushwa Brick and was constructed using the Flemish bond fashion, the hallmark of Classical Architecture first appearing in medieval Europe's Frauenkirche of Munich in 1468 with the earliest surviving American example on St. Lukes Church, Isle of Wight County, VA. Enter into the impressive foyer with spiral staircase fashioned after the spiral stairway of the Rotunda of the University of Virginia. Immediately notice the gleaming hardwood floors that run throughout most of the home as well as the custom millwork by Van Heyneker Fine Woodwoking and the Larkin Co. The foyer is flanked by the formal living and dining rooms both with wood fireplaces. Continue straight to the custom chef's kitchen with custom inlay 2-tone cabinetry, island with seating, top-of-the-line appliances and hidden pantry. Connected to the kitchen is a breakfast room with walls of windows overlooking the private yard. The 2-story family room sits off of the kitchen with built-in media center and gas fireplace. The private study is tucked at the end of the hall with built-in shelving. A sun room sits off of the kitchen and offers an abundance of natural light. Both formal and informal powder rooms, laundry room and access to the 3-car garage with doors by Designer Doors, Inc complete the main level. Up the main staircase find the owner's suite with his and hers walk-in closets and beautiful Waterbury bathroom. Two additional bedrooms share an updated guest bath and a large in-law suite with 5 piece bathroom finishes the second level. Continue to the unfinished 3rd level which offers endless possibilities for customization. The finished walk-out lower level is currently set up for an in-home gym and has a full bath. Enter the sprawling brick patio through numerous entrances from the main level and relax by the heated pool by Swift Pools, Inc. The property also houses a professional batting cage with arm-style machine and seats from Philadelphia's former Veteran's Stadium. This private 2-acre lot backs to conserved land offering tranquil views and walking trails. Enjoy this solitude while being just minutes from all major roadways, downtown Wilmington, Kennett Square & Philadelphia.
