Description

Looking for a spacious home with a large lot in Old New Castle? This is the one! Located on New Castle's most historic street this home dates to the 1780's. There were originally 2 structures on the lot. After the fire of 1824 destroyed most of the house, the property was reconstructed to join the front with the back and create one large home. The floor plan is flexible and is perfectly suited for multi-generational living. Features throughout the house include high ceilings, wood floors, wood trim including crown molding, original plaster and large windows. The first floor has the living room, dining room, kitchen and a large bedroom and bath. The kitchen has new, custom cabinets, high end appliances, butcher block counters and a working fireplace. The second floor has a second living area, den, primary bedroom with large dressing room/closet, another bedroom and a full bath. The third floor has another large bedroom, storage room, additional bedroom and a bonus room. There is a grand staircase in the front of the house and a spiral staircase in the rear. Once a ship chandler's store serving packet ships, the house has 9 fireplaces, 1 currently working. Outside is the 0.25 acre lot, huge by New Castle standards. There are lush gardens and the yard is very private. There is also a large brick patio with a covered area and the yard is fenced. Downstairs is the wine cellar and pool room. All of this and you are just steps away from the Delaware River, Battery Park, restaurants, shops, New Castle Public Library and museums. Schedule your appointment today to tour this special home.

The Temperature chart displays average high and low values for January and July, and is designed to provide an indication of both seasonal and daily temperature variability. The Weather Risk Index indicates the calculated risk of each type of weather event occurring in the future. This risk is based on historical localized storm events and weather patterns. The national average for each type of weather event equals a score of 100, so a score of 200 would represent twice the risk as the national average, and a score of 50 would represent half the risk of the national average.
