Bienvenue a la maison! Tucked away in the heart of North Wilmington is this special European Tudor home which has been classically and thoughtfully brought into the 21st century while accentuating the mid 20th century architecture. A home like this will not come along anytime soon. The dual course wythe brickwork and pointing are unlike anything you could find in todays construction. As you walk up the brick path to the copper covered front door you'll have an immediate overwhelming feel of place. Step into the foyer and marvel over the custom laid stone and tile work with detailed inlay resembling an oriental carpet. Gazing directly through the butlers pantry from this space you'll be transported into one of the three distinct outdoor living spaces as you enter the carefully constructed chef's kitchen. Wind to the right and step across recently refinished red oak hardwood flooring. The fridge and dishwasher are hidden, but the 6-burner Wolf stove and stainless european ovens round out the full compliment of appliances. This Waterbury designed space donned Delaware Today and participated in the annual kitchen tour of 2012. With two sinks there's plenty of room for quality cooking and baking. Step down into the breakfast room with bare feet as the heated stone floor and gas fireplace keep you cozy at all times of the year. Step through the mudroom to grab your keys, briefcase and book bag before stepping out to the detached 2.5 car garage. Back inside on the first level is an enlarged dining room with bay window just off of the kitchen. Perfect for displaying your favorite plants and soaking in the rays of sun while reading a book. Through to the formal living room you'll find a wood-burning fireplace, custom built-in cabinetry and a wall of windows welcoming light from the morning sun. As you walk back to the true gem of this home you'll be awestruck as you step down onto slate flooring and soak in 3 walls of casement windows bringing the outdoors inside from the front, side and backyard. This truly spectacular space will be the heart of your home. From here you can step outside to the large brick patio for all season entertaining. Upstairs you'll find another master suite with private european style bath, walk-in closet and built-in shelving. Down the hall are three more bedrooms sharing a hall bathroom with tastefully updated tile and stonework. Hardwood flooring covers the entirety of the second floor. Solid wood pocket and swinging doors close seamlessly for your private escape in all spaces. The outside grounds offer a well maintained and creatively envisioned garden oasis that has been thoughtfully planned, preened and executed over many decades. Longwood Gardens has nothing on the yard here. Come make this unique European Tudor house your North Wilmington home.
