Description for 206 Jefferson Street Delaware City, DE 19706
A beautiful 3 story, 5 bedroom, 3.5 bath circa 1870 historic home offering 3,975 sq.ft. of comfortable living in the waterfront town of Delaware City. The striking architecture of the home combines the symmetry of classic Italianate style topped with a grand 2nd Empire Mansard roof. The home has been lovingly updated and maintained from top to bottom by the owners over 29 years. Enter through the original 4-panel hardwood double doors into the main vestibule and your gaze immediately is drawn up the magnificent staircase to the second and third floors. The front parlor wows with floor-to-ceiling windows that fill the room with light and provide walk-out access to the twin front porches. Continue through the comfortable den/sitting room to the elegant wallpapered formal dining room with a built-in china cabinet large enough to accommodate family gatherings and special occasions. A back staircase from the kitchen area provides private access to the second floor master suite. A powder room tucked into the vestibule off of the 2nd front entrance offers modern convenience without imposing on the design of the home. This amazing home still has original woodwork in most areas, wide plank floors, and reconditioned original windows. The kitchen has been remodeled with new cabinets, counter tops, and stainless steel appliances. A tin ceiling and restored wooden floors enhance the turn-of-the-century feel of the space. The master suite includes a spacious modern bathroom with a whirlpool tub, large custom-built walk-in-shower, and a laundry room with full size washer and dryer. Radiant hot water heat under the ceramic tile floor is a toasty treat for your feet in the winter. Two large bedrooms and another updated full bath complete the second floor. Up the stairs to the third floor you will find two more large bedrooms, a modern full bath and a storage room with custom built-in shelving. This historic home is breath-taking and one-of-a-kind. The electric service has been upgraded to 200 amp. The roofs have all been replaced. All of the baths and the kitchen have been upgraded. The heating system has a workhorse natural gas boiler supplying hot water to a mixed radiator/in-floor radiant system with three heating zones. The home sits on a tree-lined street that is one of the prettiest in Delaware City. The community itself is a picturesque small town from another time that sits at the intersection of the Delaware River and the original Chesapeake and Delaware Canal. It~s easy to imagine the barges and steamers that transported passengers and goods between Baltimore and Philadelphia in the 1800's. The city boasts a lively downtown area with a scenic waterfront park, restaurants, stores, and craft shops. A paved bike and hiking trail reaches all the way from downtown, across Delaware, to Chesapeake City, Maryland. Bikers and pedestrians from the region flock here in the summer. You can kayak or boat in to the municipal dock right on the main street and enjoy waterfront shopping and dining. The town is 3 miles off Delaware Route 1, within 30 minutes of all employment centers in New Castle County and is only 45 minutes from Philly International Airport and an hour and twenty minutes to the Delaware beaches.
