  • Property Description

    Grace, Style, and Refinement define this 8-bedroom Colonial Revival home on 9.5 stunning acres located in the hills of Greenville, adjacent to the protected lands of Mt. Cuba Center. This is a rare opportunity to own a former duPont Family Estate, The property is the perfect representation of Chateau Country ambiance with views that will always remain - yet it's priced well below the appraised value and offers potential sub division possibilities or a Bed & Breakfast Opportunity.  The private tree-lined lane that leads to the circular driveway sets the stage for sophistication.  Savor the imposing facade of the 7,700 square-foot, two story stone home.  Once inside, admire the exquisite design, reminiscent of R. Brognard Okie, the Main Line architect, famous for restoring the Betsy Ross House in Philadelphia.  Extensive Built-in cabinetry, wainscoting, original hardwood molding and trim, arched doorways, antique hardware, random-width hardwood floors, dormers.  Curl up in the wood-paneled study; entertain in the gorgeous living room; dine in the formal dining room, boasting original hand-painted wallpaper; or relax on the enclosed porch while enjoying views of the manicured grounds, in-ground pool & lighted tennis court.  Built in 1939 and updated over the decades this property retains its charm with its seven wood-burning fireplaces, arched doorways, and undulating staircase that gently curves to the second floor.  The home has 8 full bathrooms and 3 half-baths.  A private wing containing 380-square-foot owner's suite including his & her full baths.  The wings first floor suite has a separate entrance, full bath with dressing room, well equipped for staff, an au pair or in-law suite.  The chef's kitchen includes a Sub-Zero, a six-burner commercial gas stove with two ovens & broiler/grill with an adjoining butler's pantry.  The softly rolling grounds with mature trees create a sylvan setting. There's a three-stall barn situated above the fenced pasture.  Additional Buildings include a heated three-car detached garage/workshop (with electric and water), pool house, and a separate storage building/apartment.  This classic property represents the quintessential Brandywine Valley lifestyle- You'll feel as though you're presiding over a country estate, but Greenville shops, schools and Wilmington restaurants are a quick drive away, easy commute to Amtrak and Philadelphia airport too.  For the buyer who appreciates Old World quality and privacy, owning this elegant estate is not just a pleasure-it's also a privilege.
