    The best of Wilmington's historic Highlands neighborhood! The 1930s character with modern day finishes and systems will entice you to this turn-key home on one of the nicest blocks in Wilmington. Impeccable attention to detail has been paid throughout with carefully executed renovations while preserving the original character - nothing was missed in the modernizing and maintenance of this 3-story, 6 bedroom, 3.2 bath home. The front of the home features a brick patio that runs the width of the house with elegant, rounded portico, columns and dentil molding. Enter into the center hall foyer that sets the tone for this refined main level. To the right find the sun-lit formal living room with period moldings. French doors lead to an outdoor terrace and a second set lead to an office/study space with built-in cabinetry. A wood-burning fireplace with ornate mantle completes the living room. Head across the foyer to the large dining room with original leaded glass windows and inlay hardwood floors. Many of the rooms on the main level display original leaded windows, providing natural light throughout the first floor and highlighting the sophistication of this bygone era. Continue through to the modern gourmet kitchen featuring custom cabinetry, stacked stone fireplace, stainless steel appliances, a center island, and butler's pantry with drink fridge and wet sink. A rear mudroom with powder room will provide loads of function and is adjacent to a large family room with wrap-around windows directly across from the eat-in kitchen. The beautiful formal stairway makes a stop at a dedicated landing that services a private home office or den. The second floor includes a luxurious Primary Bedroom with newly renovated marble En-Suite featuring massive walk-in shower with rain head and glass enclosure, quartz vanities, and water closet. The Primary Bedroom has a custom walk-in closet that was once a bedroom - a spacious luxury seldom found in homes of this era. Two additional well-sized bedrooms share a Jack-and-Jill bath that was completely taken down to the studs and rebuilt to feature a remodeled bath with tub shower and dual vanity. One of the bedrooms has private access to a bonus room and enclosed porch with swing. The third floor has all the appeal and detail of the rest of the home - no forgotten spaces here - and houses 3 large bedrooms and a refreshed full bath, cedar closet, and laundry room. The rear yard provides a private oasis in the City with a lovely slate patio, fire pit, and gated drive, all overlooking a manicured leveled backyard. The 2-car detached garage with newer doors and roof completes this fabulous property. Less than one block walk from community playground located at Highlands Elementary School and conveniently located a short walking distance to the shops and restaurants of Trolley Square while just steps away from The Brandywine River, Delaware Art Museum, Rockford Park and a quick drive to Philadelphia, Amtrak Station, and other points of interest.
