Once in a lifetime opportunity! Set high up on the banks of Brandywine River - this historic brick home is situated to take in the unmatched scenic views. Originally built by the DuPont company for one of the Hagley Powder Mill supervisors, it was constructed with brick and not a lesser material, allowing for its longevity. It has been lovingly maintained by its current owner and retains much of its historic charm. The 0.5 acre lot is dotted with mature trees and thoughtfully architected landscaping and hardscaping. Head up a flight of steps to the sprawling porch/balcony that looks out over the Brandywine and taking in the soothing sounds of the falls. Head into the classic foyer and immediately notice the gleaming hardwood floors that run throughout much of the home. Continue through to the formal living room with mantled fireplace with dentil molding and built-in shelving. This opens to the formal dining room which can be accessed by the kitchen via swinging door. Straight back from the dining room is a newly remodeled office/laundry room area with powder room and mudroom. This connects to the kitchen which has access to the basement that is perfect for dry storage and also accesses the 2-car garage. Head up to the second level to find the primary suite with large bedroom, walk-in closet and en-suite with dual vanity. An additional bedroom, guest bath and study with stairway access to the third floor complete the second level. Pass a built-in shelf of books as you head up to the large finished third floor - posing endless options as a bedroom, bonus room, etc. This spectacular property is set in a dream location and is ready for its next chapter!
