Perfectly set on an exquisitely landscaped and peaceful corner lot, this impressive stone Colonial home is tucked away in the highly desirable Wawaset Park. Comfortable luxury is found within this generously proportioned 6 bedroom, 3 ½ bathroom home of over 3,800 square feet. The large formal foyer, living and dining rooms are richly appointed with original details including transom windows, hardwood floors, tall baseboards, dual folding doors, crystal lighting, and original hardware. Through glass doors in the living room, you are welcomed into a verdant courtyard with beautifully designed stone terraces and patios, a calming water fountain, a luxurious 6 foot deep plunge pool and abundant seasonal plantings creating a truly private oasis that is the envy of your neighbors. Back inside you'll find a proper butler's pantry, and an updated kitchen offering functionality to the entertaining spaces. Features include Viking appliances, granite countertops, glass cabinets, custom built-ins, and a Venetian chandelier. Finishing off the main floor is a Parisian-styled powder room with a pedestal sink, antiqued brass fixtures, a pull-chain toilet, and grasscloth walls complementing the original tile work. The 2nd floor plan encompasses 3 bedrooms including an owner's suite with a custom walk-in closet and spacious bathroom with a quartz vanity, high-end cabinetry with custom fittings, recessed medicine cabinets, and a beautiful tile and glass shower with 9 jets making this entire space a true owner's retreat. Another bedroom, currently used as an office, provides access to a private balcony and additional attic space that would make a great studio or children's hideaway. The third floor includes 3 additional bedrooms, a total of 8 closets, and an updated hallway bathroom. The current owners have maintained historical accuracy and married that with numerous designer finishes including custom built-in radiator covers, draperies, and rugs. A brand-new commercial grade boiler along with zoned air conditioning provides comfortable temperatures year-round. This home is full of surprises with working servants call buttons, a second back staircase, and a hard-to-find attached two-car garage making this a truly one-of-a-kind property. Renovated and meticulously maintained, this is a rare opportunity to own a bespoke property in one of Wilmington's finest neighborhoods. Welcome home.
