16 Stirrup Run

Newark, DE 19711

A unique property with a rich history located in popular North Star and North Star Elementary School feeder pattern! This parcel was part of a Ben Franklin Land Grant. The original cabin was built in 1805 and the stone main house in 1806. Other additions were added in 1870 and 1972. Part of the Underground Railroad followed the stream at the rear of the property. The current owners have meticulously restored and improved this beautiful estate including, but not limited to, adding structural reinforcements, electrical updates, rain water management, a new 4 ton HVAC system and much more. At the same time, the owners carefully restored and maintained the character and uniqueness throughout the home. Many rooms have crown molding and wide baseboards. Most of the flooring remains original, preserving the fine character. As you enter the original section of the 1805 home you will find a greeting room with a generous coat closet and boot closet with entrances to the family room and kitchen as well as a curved rear staircase to the 2nd floor. The large sun-lit family room features a propane fireplace with antique mantle and leads to another large den which can serve as a 2nd TV area, a breakfast room or as an extension while entertaining. The kitchen features plenty of storage and all the modern conveniences including stainless steel appliances and 45 square feet of prep area. A laundry room offering addt'l storage space is conveniently located off the kitchen, as well as a hall powder room.
