314 Lighthouse Road

Wilmington, DE 19809

Amazing opportunity to own a fabulous home across from the Lighthouse in Gordon Heights, just outside the Bellefonte town limits. Walk up to the beautifully restored home on a large lot and a quiet street and enjoy the serenity of the mature trees and interesting rocks that are reported to have come from the construction on the Lighthouse. Enter the restored, original front door and be transported back 100 years to a time when quality and design was paramount. Original hardwood floors have been refinished to contain a hint of the history of the home. Just inside the door is a beautiful staircase to the second floor where you find a large loft area on both sides of the house. Childrens play area, office or workout area, just use your imagination to make the spaces anything you like. Or enclose for 1 or 2 bedrooms and have private rooms for family or visitors. Past the loft is a closet where you find a "hidden" cedar closet, and on the right a nice sized 2nd floor bedroom. The second floor is complete with the spacious bathroom complete with brand new tile shower and fixtures, including a cultured marble top vanity. Back on the first floor and to the right of the stairs is a door to an office or bedroom. Opposite side of the living room and just past the wood burning fireplace is the wonderful dining and kitchen that was opened up to allow guests to congregate and enjoy the food preparation and conversation while visiting at meal times. White cabinets and granite counters along with top quality stainless appliances accent this open kitchen complete with a breakfast bar. Past the kitchen is the laundry area and back door with seasonal views of the Delaware river. Off the dining room you will find the other access to the office/bedroom, the Master Bedroom and a bathroom you won't want to leave. Tiled Shower and another custom vanity, along with a spacious closet complete this generous space. The yard is large and ready for your personal touch. The 2 car garage has new doors and openers to get you out of the elements. Next to the garage is a unique stone BBQ/Fireplace to restore and use, or just admire and contemplate the history and memories it holds. You Must See This Gem across from a Local Treasure today. But beware. You may need to try hard to find a reason not to buy and live in this fabulous home in a historical location. Owner Is a licensed real estate agent.
