Beautiful 1880's farmhouse in Greenville! This lovely home was the original farmhouse for Westhaven and West Park and has been lovingly restored, renovated & expanded by the current owner. Every detail has been meticulously thought out to match the character of the original house including the beautiful gardens. The recently re-built front porch frames the original section of the house and serves as a charming spot to view the front garden and watch the yellow finches, hummingbirds, butterflies and lightning bugs that visit. The charm continues inside the home with the welcoming front foyer that features a large wall of custom built-in cabinetry and a hall closet for plenty of storage space. Adjacent to the foyer is a beautiful dining room with easy access to the eat-in kitchen. The kitchen features newer appliances, built-in shelves for extra storage or display, new flooring and a secondary door that leads to the side and back yards. The cozy 1st floor library offers 3 walls of built-in shelves. In 2013, the 2-story addition was added to the home providing a beautiful, large living room with a wood burning fireplace and rear door to the newly installed brick patio. The 2nd floor houses 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths that include the spacious master suite addition. The master suite features a large bathroom with custom tiled shower and separate dressing area with 2 large closets. The laundry has also been moved to the 2nd floor for an added convenience. Both secondary bedrooms offer double closets, and the 2nd full bath has been recently updated. Hardwood floors are present thru-out the home with heart pine floors on the 2nd floor. The exterior of this home is as equally impressive as the interior with lovely gardens thru-out the property that have been professionally designed with plants native to Delaware and certified as a natural habitat. Stone walk-ways, brick pavers and natural paths lead you thru the gardens to enjoy the flowers that cascade through the seasons starting in early Spring with 100's of daffodils and woodland violets. Late Spring brings flowering trees & shrubs such as dogwoods, service berries and blueberries. Bouquets of black-eyed Susan's, Coneflower, Phlox and Goldenrod continue into the Summer months. Additional notable updates include: Roof replaced in 2008, vinyl siding removed, original wood siding repaired and painted, furnace replaced in 2013, front porch re-built 1 year ago with cedar posts and railings and maintenance free flooring, brick patio installed 1 year ago, two story addition in 2013, driveway parking and large storage shed. An absolutely wonderful home ready for its next chapter!
