Description

RARE opportunity to own an original Broom Street Mansion, built in 1900! This home right in Cool Spring section of Wilmington, has worlds of opportunity. As you enter through the grand front door, you are greeted with a wonderful entryway. To the left, you enter one of the most magnificent living rooms you have ever seen- complete with crown moldings, built in bookshelves, and wood-burning fireplace. The natural light exuding from the gorgeous bay windows is exquisite! Past the living room you will find a formal dining room which leads just past the hall and into the large kitchen, complete with butler's pantry and original sink from over a century ago! While walking through the main floor, don't miss the original pocket doors and gorgeous hardwood floors- character and charm from an era that is hard to replicate!Upstairs on the second floor, you will find 5 generously sized bedrooms, including a primary bedroom ensuite, as well as a full hall bath. A third floor adds an additional three bedrooms, a third full bathroom, and a balcony to enjoy those warm summer nights and those cool winter breezes. The third floor also has a second kitchen, allowing this space to truly be used for growing families and many generations, or even additional rental income.This home also has a full unfinished basement for additional storage, complete with a walk out and bilco doors.The character of this home is unmatched. From multiple outdoor enjoyment spaces, to the back stairway, to large storage closets on each floor- the details you will find here are truly remarkable. In addition, the location is amazing- walkability to Padua Academy, annual festivals, and all the shops and restaurants of Trolley Square. Hop in the car and head over to Riverfront in just over 5 minutes! Easy access to I95 and 202 make this the perfect spot whether you are staying local or commuting. Schedule your tour today!!
