Property Description

Ordinary No More! This once nondescript farmhouse has been transformed into an expansive, modern retreat without sacrificing the historical charm reminiscent of the local snuff manufacturing mills the Garrett family introduced to Delaware in the 1840s. Located at the intersection of Nine Gates Road and Snuff Mill Road, this intriguing residence sits back on a lovely half-acre-plus lot surrounded by three-hole, split-rail fencing and soothing country-life views. Below ground, a natural spring continues to run unaware of the world above. Access to the water is provided through a covered well in the basement under the original section of the house. Your first impression is enhanced by the substantial grassy frontage and mature landscaping, the open wrap-around porch, the complementary rooflines, the energy-saving windows of varying shapes and sizes, and the impressive Craftsman-style front door with frosted glass insert. Over fifty-two-hundred square feet of living space awaits you. From the moment you enter the large, gracious foyer at the front of the house, you will delight in the seemingly endless sea of dark-stained hardwood flooring and thoughtfully colored walls. Immediate features of this original section include the 15-light French doors and a longstanding tuck-away staircase that leads to the upper-level bedrooms. Beyond the entrance lies the spectacular Craftsman-inspired, open-concept eat-in kitchen with hardwood flooring, striking cabinetry including 42-inch top cabinets, a corner pantry, attention-grabbing granite countertops, a raised four-seat breakfast bar, and a perfectly sized island with a two-seat breakfast bar. Plenty of space for all! Premium stainless-steel appliances include a two-door refrigerator, two built-in ovens, a dishwasher, a countertop microwave, and a smooth electric cooktop. Not to be overlooked, the kitchen also features recessed lighting, pendant lighting, and direct access to the large screened porch. Adjacent to the kitchen is the enormous two-story open family room with a gas fireplace, twin 15-light doors ~ one to the rear screened porch and another to the front-facing deck and koi pond. Next we enter the main level rear-facing master suite featuring a soaring two-story ceiling, a huge walk-in closet, a pellet stove, French door access to the rear deck, and an en-suite bath featuring a ceramic-tile, walk-in shower. Additional main-level highlights include an impressive raised wet bar, a handsome open-turned staircase adorned with ornate iron balusters, a separate laundry room, a powder room, and direct access to the two, two-car garages. Heading upstairs, the front staircase brings you to a landing with a cozy nook and entrance to the beds and baths. The rear staircase is directly connected to an open hallway with an overlook of the massive family room below. This level provides three bedrooms and two full baths, including one generously sized sunny bedroom with a shared en-suite bath. There is still more! A one-bedroom in-law apartment with separate outdoor entrance and ample parking sits above one of the two-car garages. And that~s not all! A huge, two-story shed with electricity can accommodate a variety of needs. And finally, 1580 Snuff Mill Road is only minutes from all the shopping and dining venues Greenville, Hockessin and Kennett Square have to offer.
