17 Walnut Ridge Road

Greenville, DE 19807

Set on 2.3 beautiful, gently sloping, wooded acres, this special house is a nature lover's dream. The spacious 4,500 sq. ft. house sits at the end of a quiet road, down a long circular driveway, between the Fieldstone Golf Course and Vicmead Hunt Club. The house has a very warm, natural feel and has several skylights. It's a combination of mid century modern and Asian with its softly sloping roof line. It's surrounded by beautiful native species gardens that attract many birds, butterflies and hummingbirds. There is a brick patio in front, a screened in porch for summer dining, a large deck between the house and garage, and a large pea gravel patio in back that is surrounded by a lovely rose garden. The house has walls of windows that give panoramic views into the woods. It has four bedrooms, including a huge master bedroom suite with a sitting area, walk-in closets, private deck and a wall of floor to ceiling windows. The main house has 3 1/2 baths, an enormous great room that could be converted into another bedroom/bathroom suite, oak floors throughout, a first floor laundry room and a beautiful brick fireplace in the living room. Enjoy cooking in the newly renovated gourmet kitchen with a Thermador commercial range, eco-friendly cabinets and quartz countertops. There is a 900 sq. ft. newly renovated, walkout family room on the lower level that looks out to the gardens, patio and woods through French doors and oversized windows. There is also a 900 sq. ft. storage and utility room with a garden/potting room with sink on the lower level. The house has central air, an emergency generator, and a full water filter, neutralizer, UV system. Above the 2 car garage is a studio with full bath and small kitchen that is currently used as an art studio by the New Yorker Cartoonist who lives in the main house with his family. It would make a great au pair suite. The property has a beautiful woodland trail with a bench. The current owners love to watch the foxes stroll through the yard. Listening to the sound of birds and owls is another pleasure of living here. And, on summer nights, you can often hear the soft sound of bagpipe music drifting through the woods from Fieldstone.
