Property Description

Priced to sell! It’s your turn to experience the “happiness” of living in a Schell Brothers home. A relative newcomer (2016) to Middletown, Delaware, and the Appoquinimink school district, this meticulously maintained—and feature-filled—four-bedroom (two suite!) home will not last. Prepare yourself for overwhelming delight in the sheer distinctiveness of pristine living space found throughout this nautical-inspired, Craftsman-style home in the walkable, tucked-away community of Parkside. Now, let’s begin with the front. The roof is adorned with architectural shingles and paired with standing seam metal to accentuate the extensions. The entire house is wrapped in a visually pleasing combination of board-and-batten siding and shutters, multiple sizes of clapboard, energy-saving windows of varying shapes and sizes, and a cut-stone-fronted foundation. All of this, topped off with window boxes and spectacular, thoughtfully placed landscaping. The concrete walkway from the extended driveway and three-car, turned garage, leads up to the ample covered front sitting porch. As you enter the two-story, open foyer, you will immediately notice the natural sunlight filtering into the area from the starburst transom and five-lite side lights flanking the two-panel arch front door and the seemingly endless sea of gorgeous, random-width hickory hardwood floors, crown molding, five-panel interior doors, and recessed lighting found throughout most of this house. And this is just the beginning! To the right is the well-sized sitting or living room. We invite you to take note of the adjustable louvered wood shutters and the custom built-in sitting bench with storage and a working heating and cooling vent. Stepping back into the entry hall, we direct your attention to the heart of the house. The large, open, eat-in gourmet kitchen features gas cooking, quartz countertops, a Kohler farmhouse sink, handsome cabinets with under-mount lighting, and soft-close doors and drawers, a quartz-topped center island, a six-seat, wrap-around breakfast bar, and GE Profile appliances. Sliders lead from the dining area out to the new (2020) double-sided Trex deck and grassy yard below. The first floor continues with a tour of the adjoining two-story great room featuring a gas fireplace with a slate hearth and a slate surround, a useful ceiling fan, stacks of windows with custom wood blinds, and rustic barn doors between this space and the sitting room. The main level of this comfortable home also features an expansive owner’s suite with a deep-set tray ceiling, stacked crown molding, neutral wall-to-wall carpeting, two walk-in closets, a jetted tub, two bridged vanities, and a large walk-in shower. A discretely located powder room with a pedestal sink, a full-size laundry room, and access to the attached garage complete the main level. Wow! Heading upstairs, the front staircase brings you to a spacious loft with neutral wall-to-wall carpeting, an open view of the two-story great room, and entrance to the additional beds and baths. This level provides three bedrooms and two full baths, including one huge bedroom with a large sitting area and private en-suite bath. There is still more! A full-size unfinished basement is plumbed for a three-piece bathroom and ready for your finishing touches. And that’s not all! The downspouts drain into underground gutter extensions that disperse water into the yard. And finally, the expanded solar system on the rear of the house is grandfathered into Middletown’s solar producing cap and is PAID-IN-FULL. SPECIAL NOTE: The HOA approved plans for a concrete patio with a flameless FirePro and a stone sitting wall.
