This beautiful midcentury modern home is set on a secluded 2.3 acre wooded lot with native species gardens in front of the house and incredible views of the wooded valley to the rear. When you arrive, you will immediately feel like you are out in nature, far away from the stress of modern life. But in reality this private location is just minutes from downtown Wilmington, Kennett, and Greenville. Enter the home into the brick floored front hall. You will find the updated kitchen to the left with stone countertops, new cabinets made from renewable green materials, stainless appliances, and a commercial gas range. This room has views of the native-plant gardens and front patio. At the end of the kitchen is the breakfast nook, with floor-to-ceiling bay windows also overlooking the gardens. The kitchen and breakfast nook flow seamlessly into the open concept dining room and living room with a wood-burning fireplace. The living room features breathtaking views of the wooded valley behind the home, with plenty of wildlife and no other houses to be seen. On the other side of the front hall you will find two guest bedrooms, bathroom, laundry room, and the original master bedroom with en suite bathroom. The current owners moved the master bedroom to the second floor, but left the original intact, offering a great option for buyers looking for a first floor master bedroom or an in-law suite. Both the first floor bathrooms were renovated this year and feature spectacular craftsmanship. The new master bedroom on the second floor provides a very private location, away from guests. The recently renovated master bathroom features a stall shower, double sinks, and a walk in closet. The master bedroom features an additional walk in closet and more breath taking views of the valley. Also on the second floor you will find the second floor family room. Continuing with the theme of this home, this room too has incredible views of nature. The family room has the potential to be used as a den, office, master suite sitting room, or 5th bedroom. On the lower level to the left side of the stairway you will find the lower level family room. This space is below grade on the front side of the house, but walks out onto the rear patio and rose garden. The lower level family room also offers a half bath. On the right side of the stairway you will find the utility room and work shop. In addition to the newly renovated bathrooms, this home features new plumbing and radiator systems.
