This is your chance to own a piece of Delaware history with this stunning 3 story Craftsman
stone home that sits nestled on a wooded, hilltop lot in Brandywine Hundred. This historic home
was built in 1900 and was home to the late preservationist S. Marston Fox, the architect behind
the nearby Fox Point state park. Tucked away from the road behind a lush wall of mature trees
and vegetation you will discover a magical place as you round the circular driveway that
showcases a gigantic oak tree. The grounds have been expertly designed by the previous
owner who was a landscape architect with perennials that will dazzle you through the seasons.
The stone carriage house contains an open studio with wood stove above the two car garage
which can be used as an artist’s space or playroom. The home has some amazing updates
including all new roofing and decking on the entire main house with indestructible synthetic
slate, matte black metal front porch roof and new shingles on the rear porch along with a fresh
coat of Navy blue on the cedar shingled siding with crisp white wood trim and windows
From the circular driveway, enter the home through the main floor with 9.5ft ceilings through the
updated kitchen featuring granite counters, brand new black stainless appliances including a
gas range, hammered copper sink, high quality oak cabinets and is flanked by a true butler’s
pantry featuring a second copper sink with dishwasher and additional storage on the other side
of the butler’s staircase to the second floor. The dedicated dining room features wainscotting
with a bay window with built in seating and heavy pocket doors. Head through to the living room
which feels more like a lodge as you cozy up next to the gas fireplace with a one-of-a-kind
mantel that was hand carved by neighbor and famous local artist Robert Shaw. The living room
also features heavy pocket doors for movie night. Head over to one of the most amazing rooms
in the house is the bright first floor office which sits in the corner surrounded by windows which
overlook the peaceful grounds and birdfeeders which provides the perfect place to work from
home. The first-floor half bath is accessed through the office and main hallway and features a
unique original privacy door for the toilet stall. From the main floor hallway, walk towards the
crown jewel of the house, the massive screened in porch where family and friends can gather in
privacy behind the greenery all around.
Head upstairs to the second floor with 8.5 ft ceilings while admiring the amazing craftmanship of
the woodwork of the grand oak staircase and bannisters to the 5 spacious bedrooms. The
master has an adjacent bedroom that can be used as a nursery or dressing room or closed for
privacy with a door. The full bath on the second floor features original pressed tin paneling and
a clawfoot tub. Each of the 5 bedrooms has its own mini-split HVAC unit for personalizing temps
on a humid summer or chilly winter night for each sleeper. The home also sports a state-of-the-art, inverter ultra-high-efficiency HVAC installed in 2019 with a wifi-enabled thermostat.
The third floor features a bonus finished space that can easily be turned into a dedicated
master. There is an attached blank slate open space with 16 ft vaulted ceilings that could be the
master bath and dressing room of your dreams!

Climate and Weather
The Temperature chart displays average high and low values for January and July, and is designed to provide an indication of both seasonal and daily temperature variability. The Weather Risk Index indicates the calculated risk of each type of weather event occurring in the future. This risk is based on historical localized storm events and weather patterns. The national average for each type of weather event equals a score of 100, so a score of 200 would represent twice the risk as the national average, and a score of 50 would represent half the risk of the national average.
