Showings begin Saturday, Aug 20th. Don’t miss touring this lovely historic home on The Strand in Historic New Castle. This magnificent home was built in 1826 and is situated next to the famous Read House and its lovely gardens. You couldn’t ask for a better neighbor. The owners have done top-of-the-line renovations in updating this historic gem. Their relocation to the West is your opportunity to own a warm and inviting piece of the 19th century. Step inside the foyer and notice the beautiful floor cloth and stenciling on the walls. Almost all of the rooms in the house have original hardwood floors. The living room has 10-foot high ceilings, built-in bookshelves, and a natural gas fireplace. The windows contain the original glass with storm windows for efficiency. Step through the large 8-panel doors into the front parlor with its lovely wood-burning fireplace. The hearth room was the original kitchen. It is currently used as a music room. The “cozy room” can be used for additional dining or as an extension of the kitchen. It offers original cabinetry dating to 1865 and a wonderful bay window that brightens the space. The exquisite kitchen has been completely renovated and features a raised ceiling with recessed lights, built-in speakers and has a Subzero refrigerator, natural gas cooktop, beautiful granite countertops, and custom white cabinetry. The flooring is reclaimed pine to match the original floors of the home and is stenciled with a design from the 1800s. A fabulous 1900s butcher block stays with the home. There is a breakfast nook perfect for coffee and for looking through the French doors into the wonderful garden with a brick patio and hot tub. The first-floor bathroom has a heated tile floor and a shower with bench and grab-bar. Take the turned staircase to the second level featuring the main bedroom with a high ceiling, built-in bookshelves, a wood fireplace, and a full bathroom. Next door is the study/bedroom which has a gas fireplace, high ceiling, crown moldings, and built-in bookcases. On the other side of the stairs, there is a large bathroom, another bedroom, and a sunroom with a heated tile floor that overlooks the lush perennial garden and the Read House garden. It’s a lovely place to enjoy a meal. The third floor features two bedrooms, each with classic dormer windows. There is also an oversized closet off of the hallway. Other amenities include a basement with a high ceiling and a French drain, lots of shelf space, and a new washer and drier. There is central air conditioning on all levels with moist radiant heat in the wintertime. The house has been professionally painted with Benjamin Moore paint and has been meticulously maintained by its loving owners. This house on The Strand is a charming place to live in the middle of a historic neighborhood with a community feel. Walk a block to Battery Park with its wonderful path along the Delaware River and to stores and restaurants and take in the marvels of old New Castle. This fine home is reminiscent of many upper-middle-class townhomes in Philadelphia. The sellers are providing generous inclusions with this home along with a buyer one year home warranty.
