The land was purchased by the first owner in 1714 from William Penn's son. Mr. Worsley then built one of the first brick homes in New Castle County on the land in 1725. The present owner is only the 3rd family to own this 295 year old historic property. Penn Manor is steeped in local history. The home was restored in 2016 with perfection, impeccable craftsmanship and an amazing addition to compliment the period of the original home. Entering into the home from the addition it is evident that every detail was thought of to tie the old with the new. The game room offers reclaimed floors, and ship lap ceiling with beams emulates an open feeling of a renovated barn. Entering the Sun Porch next it is detailed with beautifully laid brick, replica tin chandeliers, pitched roof line, bright windows and exposed brick from the original part of the home. The Farm Kitchen is outfitted with custom cabinetry by Steve Wagner with warm colors, reproduction hardware, soap stone counters & a butcher block center island. Luxury appliances will exceed the expectations of even the most ardent of home chefs. A bright Breakfast Room is located off to the side of the Kitchen with space for a large farm table. The Kitchen transitions into the Family Room that is a Log Cabin that was transferred to the property from Pennsylvania. The stone fireplace was built with existing stones located on the property. The first floor addition offers a sizeable Mud Room and adjacent Laundry Room. The back stair case leads you to the second story addition. The Owners Suite is complete with reclaimed hardwood floors, an exposed wall of brick, well appointed full bath & walk in closet. The additional two bedrooms in the new section have dormer ceilings, walk in closets and full bathrooms with designer finishes. Walk down the hallway to the brick and stone wall and enter into the original home. There you will find an original Owners Suite with a charming fire place and adjacent full bathroom with a jetted tub. Down the hallway are two additional bedrooms that share a Jack n Jill full bathroom. The front stairs lead you to the original Foyer flanked on one side by the formal Dining Room complete with wainscotting, fireplace, full windows with deep window sills. The other side presents the original Living Room, well sized with fireplace, original windows & hardwood floors. The Library is adjacent to the Living Room and offers built ins & a fireplace. The two story Great Room exudes charm from the Colonial era. There was a ceiling that was removed to create the two story feature. The stone fireplace was rebuilt with stones from the property and the stone hearth & bread oven were restored. The character in this room speaks from the masonry & stone exposed walls. The inviting Guest Cottage offers a versatile space with a full renovation in 2016 from an existing structure to create a living space with Great Room, complete Kitchen, Loft and Full Bathroom. The ship lap cathedral ceiling with exposed beams are a highlight to the Cottage. The Bank Barn is a historic gem and the anchor to the property ... this also was rebuilt by Amish craftsmen during the 2016 renovation. The Barn has been brought into this century offering heated space in the upper level with a basketball court, a batting cage & volley ball net. The lower Barn provides ample storage along with space to house 6 cars. This is a great home for a large family and extended family! It is not often that a home of this caliber that is steeped in history becomes available for sale. The cost of the renovations exceeds the list price of this home, the owner spared no expense in restoring Penn Manor - it is the perfect blend of history with the amenities of the modern world.
