Spacious, sun-filled Split Level in Sherwood Park! Tucked along serene stretch of McKennans Church Rd are the tree-dotted, lovely, landscaped homes of Sherwood Park. Ornamental tree bursting with fall color punctuates front lawn and maize yellow/vibrant purple flowers sit before line of shrubs that hug front of this cream siding/red brick blend 3BRs/1?? bath home. Dual-width driveway leads to 1-car garage and then easily to flat front entry. Step inside to wide and open foyer of herringbone-style wood floor. To left are natural wood DD closet and access to garage with back wall built-in shelves, while to right are broad, hardwood steps that lead to main level. Open pass through in foyer, place for photos and figurines thanks to its wide ledge, offers glimpse to welcoming LR beyond. LR touts count-on combination of cozy and comfortable, as well as elegant and entertaining-ready! Plush beige carpeting envelopes you in contentment, pale lilac paint softens ambiance and floor-to-ceiling, all-brick FP spanning almost full wall extends invitation to relax and recharge. This laid-back space begs one to linger! Carpeting shifts to ceramic tile inset that precedes ??-glass pane door and leads to back patio and yard, while hall, wide enough for bench, leads to PR with white cabinet-style vanity and window. Main space can be accessed from both FR and foyer, offering circular, easy-flow floor plan. From foyer, steps lead up to triangle of rooms that collectively offers open space. Large FR features triple window on front wall that gives the go-ahead for natural light and offers views to front beds and yard. Almond-color carpeting is echoed with lighter hue of paint, keeping backdrop natural, while bump-out that borders foyer is great space to showcase curio cabinet or grandfather clock! FR is open to DR, yet room boundaries are marked by transition to hardwood floors in DR. The 2 rooms are linked together by breakfast bar with guest-ready stool seating. Neutral paint continues in DR and room is made lighter by glass sliders that grace back wall. Sandstone-color granite on breakfast bar is repeated on kitchen countertops, creating continuity. Updated, upscale kitchen is open to DR with only countertop highlighted by trio of recessed lights creating slight separation. Countertop is home to flat cooktop and allows cook to be part of conversation and camaraderie between rooms. Rich maple cabinets of varying heights offer dimensional interest and are paired with black appliances. Floor-to-ceiling pantry offers easy-to-organize and out-of-sight storage, and ceramic tile backsplash and rubbed bronze hardware provide finishing touches. Set of steps leads down to FR, completing the circle. Finished ceramic tile LL is great rec/playroom. Off to one side is laundry room with dual cabinets and utility sink, and separate ceramic tile room with closet is ideal bonus room! From main level, hardwood steps framed by accent wall of terracotta paint leads to upper level. At top of steps, short hall leads past linen closet to almosttangible turquoise painted full bath of ceramic tile floor, oak vanity, tri-section mirror and tub/shower. 2 large secondary BRs, 1 with hardwoods and 1 softly carpeted, feature ceiling fans and DD closets. Primary BR boasts rich colors of deep plum/hint of gray along with great square footage and 2 sets of DD closets. Glass sliders from DR grant access to delightful, elevated deck. Perfect perch for enjoying outdoors! Steps lead down to concrete patio where its generous size is confirmed by room for BB net, grill and storage tub. Tall trees anchor large, level backyard and offer shroud of privacy and beauty, while shed, matching exterior of home, sits at edge of lawn. Great backyard for everything from planned parties to impromptu BBQs! Home is walkable to Delcastle Park and Milltown Plaza, 1 mile to Rt. 2 and almost equal 20-minute drive to both city of Newark and Downtown Wilmington. High-quality home on Highgate Rd.!
