This custom home was built in 2015-2016 by Dewson Construction Company—well known in the tri-state area for their amazing building quality, attention to detail and custom millwork. This home is simply beautiful, elegant, yet comfortable and very inviting, with lots of space to unwind, entertain or work from home. The property is located in what is considered “Chateau Country” in Delaware, where vintage estate homes mix with beautiful new homes on large parcels of property. The home is essentially built in a “U” shape and consists of 3 sections—the main living section, the game room and office section, and an entertainment section including, a vaulted two story Belvedere. The home’s exterior is finished with hand cut stone and hardi plank siding. Top of the line Pella windows are used throughout. Only the best building materials were used in construction, consisting of wide plank hardwood floors, extensive custom millwork, top-of-the-line fixtures and finishes and an airy feeling thanks to the 10-foot ceilings. Drive up to the home on the circular driveway adjacent to the 3-car garage. Enter the home from one of two doors– one leading to a multi-purpose room, or from the other entrance into the foyer of the home. The foyer is graced with a gorgeous slate entryway and custom staircase. From the foyer, step ahead into the generous and airy living room—complete with gas fireplace surrounded by custom built-ins. From the living area, step into the open concept dining area flooded with light from the oversized windows. Right off of the dining area is an oversized kitchen with island and custom cabinetry from Paradise Custom Kitchens. Tucked behind the kitchen area is—surprise– another kitchen area - a chef or entertainer’s dream! Off of the kitchen hall is a convenient office space, a wood paneled den with fireplace and a hall that leads you back to the multi-purpose room and the rest of the first floor of the home. Back to the foyer—the primary suite is off to the right. This stunning room has a fireplace, with custom built-ins, a beautiful marble bath and spacious walk-in closets. Heading upstairs, are 4 bedrooms along a high ceilinged, wood floor hallway. All bedrooms are En-Suite. At the end of the hallway's half bath is the entry to the spacious game room and office area, partially open to the “garage/entertaining” space below. Completing the first floor is a "belvedere"—a simply spectacular 2-story area with a stone floor-to-celing fireplace and a full-size custom bar - you will fell like you're on vacation! From this space is a fully customized 3-bay “garage/entertaining” space that is outfitted to feel like a room—complete with two beautiful chandeliers. The Lower Level of this home is full of features such as a shoeshine station, work bench, and a secure room, with kitchen and full bath. A final feature is the antique brick floor on the side porch with a built-in gas grilling area. So much to consider—and no detail missed. *Property is also available for rental and would consider a rent-to-own scenario. Contact either Laird or Kerry for additional information.
