Once in a while, an important Delaware property like this comes on the market. Located on 10 acres in the hills of historic Centreville, the Henry Canby House, c.1919, was the 1st estate on Selborne Rd. Today, this stately colonial upholds its original purpose: to enjoy benefits of the countryside & comfortably entertain and accommodate visitors. Symmetry, exquisite stonework, privet hedges, circular drive and cozy entrance are some of the perfectly executed features visible upon arrival. Situated to maximize 12mo sunlight, this 8BR home features a flow-through ctr hall w/3fl staircase and Fr doors, formal DR & LR with marble FP, carved mantels, study with wood-burning FP, and sun rm w/light through 9 sets of Fr doors. Balancing the sun rm, on the west end a custom eat-in kitchen w/stone counters enjoys views and connects via 2nd stairway to upper and lower living spaces. 5 seats fit comfortably at oversized ctr island, w/extra storage and sink. Any chef will appreciate the Thermador gas range, set into custom nook w/herringbone tile inlay and hidden exhaust hood. Separate butler's pantry lined w/rare tiger maple cabinetry provides additional storage, extra sink, refrigerator and dishwasher. Throughout the home, unique details like Greek Key molding, deep window sills, embellished terracotta flooring, brass hardware, marble fireplaces, and orig bronze chandelier remain in pristine condition after a century. Upstairs, the master suite functions independently, w/den, 2 FPs, and 2 custom dressing and bath areas. 4 BRs, laundry and landing w/extra storage complete the second level. The 3rd floor has 3 fully updated BRs with generous closet space, and 2 full BA. In addition to recent kitchen and bathroom reno, current owners also completed a full, walk-out basement overhaul, creating FR w/full size windows & 1/2BA, wine cave w/500 bottle cellar, mirrored gym and 6-seat theater. A tour of the grounds reveals natural contours and features incl sitting area w/fire pit, ornamental garden and patios. Brick paths lead to village of 2 cottages, workshop, and four-car garage. The naturally sloping property offers views across valley and offers year-round outdoor activity. Specimen trees compliment the flow of the landscape, and a full hillside of southern-facing peonies bursts to life in late spring. A large pond and stone ruins add character to the verdant setting conveniently located.
