This estate-like retreat sits tucked at the end of Merrybell Lane, providing solitude and unobstructed views of the lush surroundings. Enjoy the luxurious amenities of this Colonial home, guest/pool house and bank barn with four-car garage and finished loft above set on almost 22 acres of cleared and wooded land with trails.
Much care has been taken to preserve an antique feel through such details as a reclaimed wood oven hood, farm-style sinks and antique light fixtures and hardware. Much of the house is bathed in light through thoughtfully placed skylights.
Enter into the large foyer and find a formal living room to the right with marble gas fireplace and antique built-in cabinets. To the left of the foyer find the formal dining room. Continue back to the updated Chef’s kitchen at the heart of the home, featuring custom white Shaker cabinets, oversized center island with seating, Sub-Zero fridge, 6-burner Wolf range, wolf warming drawer and marble counters. The kitchen opens to the family room with wood-burning fireplace and the vast sunroom running the length of the house featuring wet bar with wine fridge and 6 sets of sliding doors allowing access to the slate patio surround. A private office, playroom with loft, powder room and mudroom/laundry room complete the main level.
Up either the front or rear staircase, find the luxurious master suite with vaulted ceiling, sitting area and private en suite with tiled shower, jetted soaking tub and double vanity. Three more bedrooms and two full guest baths complete this level. A newly constructed pool/guest cottage is a visitor’s dream with outdoor kitchen area with Wolf grill, stone pizza oven, full basement and double-sided stone fireplace and sauna and features a family room with vaulted ceiling, kitchenette, bedroom and full bath, with steam shower, and leads to an in-ground pool.
Situated next to Stateline Woods Preserve, this property provides the solitude and privacy of the country-side with easy access to Route 52 and all major highways, downtown Wilmington, Kennett Square and Philadelphia.
