Rarely available and built in 1929, this home is located in locally fabled Hamorton, built at the direction of Pierre duPont for his employees who worked at nearby Longwood Gardens. This house is an elegant, comfortable home with beautiful details both inside and out. As you might guess, great care went into the design and construction: the house and garage are solid stone, with oak floors throughout, wide molding, deep window sills, two staircases, three floors, an easily accessible attic space, plus a full height basement with outside access. Large windows fill the house with light and beautiful views. With 5 bedrooms, 3~ baths, a remodeled kitchen, a large central foyer, spacious living room, dining room, family room, mudroom, and a side porch leading to a large stone patio. The kitchen has custom cherry cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and Corian countertops. The adjacent mudroom has slate floors, built-in benches for storage, cubbies, and a closet. The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and a walk-in closet. The master bathroom, third-floor bathroom, and powder room were renovated in 2013 with Carrera marble floors, pedestal sinks, and new plumbing lines and fixtures. Generous storage closets in every room (some even have two), two linen closets, and a cedar closet. The spaces and mechanicals throughout the house have been updated and improved. The house has a gas furnace/radiators (new 2007), an extra-large hot water heater, and 2-zone air conditioning (installed 2010). The detached two-car garage has a large, second-floor storage space, as well as parking for three cars. The yard is large and professionally landscaped with beautiful and original stone walkways. The patio has a view of a small pond surrounded by a second, cozy patio. The garden has native plants, shrubs, and trees that offer year-round interest. Historic Hamorton is surrounded by open space--all Longwood property. Routes 52 and 1 are easily accessible, and it is commuting distance to SEPTA regional rail. The area offers the charm of Centerville (DE), Kennett Square borough, West Chester, and nearby Brandywine River Museum, Winterthur, and of course, Longwood Gardens. The house is located in the excellent Kennett Consolidated School District within the catchment of nearby Greenwood Elementary.
