Unique opportunity to own a piece of yesteryear in this charming Circa 1910, 5 bedroom Victorian Farmhouse in the heart of Hockessin. Notable historic details are the tapered columns on the welcoming wrap around porch, fish scale siding at the gables, stately squared newel post (likely original with oak beneath paint), many period wood interior doors and hardware as well as the window and door casings, most hardwood floors, built-in china cabinet in kitchen and the clawfoot bath tub. While improvements will be needed some of the "big ticket" items have been more recently upgraded such as: Architectural Shingle Roof on House( 30 yr.) 2009, HVAC 2018, Vinyl replacement windows in most rooms, composite decking at porch floor, full bath remodel including oversized tile shower with glass tile listello and water glass door, distressed wood vanity with square Kohler sink, bronze faucets and light fixture, Dacor professional stainless steel dual fuel range, stainless LG dishwasher and farm sink. Expansive bay window at breakfast room with wood stove nearby makes this a warm, charming spot. The third floor is a fun space; one bedroom with walk in closet and a huge bonus room. This home is full of natural light and while it's a more traditional layout, many of the rooms have sightlines to one another making it feel more open. Truly a home with amazing potential to be a real show-stopper and within walking distance to the library, baseball and soccer fields, pubs, restaurants, shops, holiday parades and everything Hockessin has to offer.
