Location, location, in the heart of Centerville and offering rare opportunity and many options as well. Handsome and roomy contemporary white brick ranch feels a bit mid-century-modern and is on a prime, very private woodsy lot on a cul-de-sac and siding to Flint Woods - 37 acres of the largest remaining old growth hardwood forest in Delaware and adjacent to a hundred acres of woodland habitat drawing many birds as a popular migration stopover. Original and sole owners enjoyed bringing the outdoors in and the house feels nestled in the woods amidst nature. Comfortable, versatile floor plan. Built around a sun-flooded Atrium or open central court (now covered from rain penetration with raised ceiling and many windows) designed to be seen from most rooms. Large enclosed entry foyer or porch with skylight and space for plantings. Front facing Living Room with wood burning fireplace and handsome hearth. Full Dining Room had gas chandelier now changed to electric. Original Kitchen with new stainless refrigerator and dishwasher has wood parquet floor. The Family Room is well located adjacent to Kitchen and between Atrium and Florida Room addition. Atrium has stone floor, vent fans, recessed lights, plumbing for water. Very large Florida Room has stone and marble floor, overlooks rear and side yards, is utterly private and opens to deck. Main level Laundry Room with skylight and storage. Main Suite has walk in closet and bath. 2 other Bedrooms and hall bath. Baths are vintage. Original oak hardwood flooring. Many Renewal by Andersen replacement windows. Lennox gas furnace, 2016. Generator for extra peace of mind. Permaflue liner with stainless steel pipe in chimney. Huge unfinished basement with several side rooms, lots and lots of storage and a gas fireplace (gas presently turned off). Crack in the rear basement wall where Florida Room was added was deemed "minor" by home inspector and will not be repaired by seller; see attached proposal. Septic system is apparently original and will not be replaced by seller; see attached letter. Well has not been tested. A home inspection summary is attached (full report available); items not already addressed will not be addressed by seller. Property is being sold "as is". Oversized one car Garage with skylight has been used as a workshop for some years but could easily enough be restored to use by changing out the door and frame. The neighborhood of Hollingsworth has a voluntary Civic Association. The street may also be known as "Rue Mandaleine". Property is just steps away from walking trails and is not far from Buckley's, the quaint shops of Centerville Village and Canby Grove Park. Easy commute to Philadelphia and beyond. Quality custom construction on a very private lot with a great floor plan and lots of room that could be put to numerous uses. All information is deemed reliable but should be verified.
