Property Description

Breck's Lane is one of the best kept secrets in the 19807 zip code. The property offers a peaceful country like setting complete with a babbling brook, but is just seconds away from the shops and dining of Greenville and a quick drive to downtown Wilmington. This charming 1930's colonial sits on a little over a third of an acre backing to preserved land that is owned by the neighborhood association of 14 homes. A beautifully designed Zack Davis backyard features intricate stone and brick work throughout the property including a stunning pool with waterfall feature and stone & brick walls. Enter the home through the main front vestibule into the foyer leading to formal dining and living rooms. Beautiful home boasts current design features such as grass cloth wallpaper in dining room and highlighting the back of the built-in bookcases in the living room as well as an open concept kitchen and family room. Gourmet kitchen was recently renovated and has a large center island, commercial grade appliances, abundant cabinetry and counterspace, and skylight in a beadboard ceiling. Second floor is host to primary bedroom with beautifully renovated private bath, two walk-in closets and laundry within one of the walk-ins. Two additional bedrooms with Jack-n-Jill bath round out the 2nd floor. Third floor has two additional bedrooms and renovated full bathroom. Basement is host to a rec room, ample storage, a 2nd laundry room, and egress door to under deck next to pool creating easy access to storage for pool accessories. Enjoy the stunning setting from the deck or spacious screened in porch. Just beyond the fenced in rear yard is common neighborhood space that the current owner has improved and maintained including fire pit and bridge leading over to the meadow. The meadow provides ample additional room to play, walk dogs or just enjoy nature. Three car detached garage with paver driveway that was built in character with the original house to make it look like it has always been there. Many of the homes on Brecks Lane were built for the millworkers and the lane was included in the National Historic Register in 1971. At the end of the one way lane you are greeted by the Brandywine River and a short walk to Hagley Museum. This home must be seen in person to truly appreciate the masterful hardscaping and landscaping of the yard as well as the improvements within the home.
