Property Description

NEW Plan!!!! The original 4 Acre parcel is currently undergoing Sub Division to become "Penn's Grant" expected subdivision to be complete September 2020. Now offered is the original Crooked Billet Estate House parcel to be subdivided to 2.45 acres- see plot plan attached in documents. Estate House being offered "AS IS". There are 2 additional adjacent parcels: 1) .51 acre lot (known as the Pool House Lot) and 2) .41 Acre parcel with Carriage House. The main driveway will be eased among the three parcels and a Homeowners Association will be established for Penn's Grant. Seller has been working with John Milner Architects and has architectural plans available for use or inspiration for potential buyers. This is your chance to own a piece of Delaware history! A hidden gem in Greenville, original construction of Crooked Billet began c.1700 with a small, two level stone structure that served as a tavern and eventually an inn for wayward travelers. After several additions and renovations, the grand home currently stands as one of the finest duPont estates in the Brandywine Valley. Entering the original tavern room with herringbone patterned brick floor, over-sized fireplace and exposed wood beams, visitors are transported into the eighteenth century. Immediately, details like hand-forged iron strap hinges and detailed wood paneling offer a glimpse of the home's authentic craftsmanship. Twelve inch, 200 year-old heart-of-pine flooring throughout the main level, exquisite built in cabinets and bookshelves, and soaring ceilings and windows have been meticulously cared for over the decades and centuries, preserving this stunning estate. Besides the formal living and dining areas, a library, nine bedrooms, three stairways, a finished third floor, media room, and generous kitchen/wet bar/butlers pantry offers more than enough space for living, cooking, entertaining, and playing. Mature gardens bloom throughout the season, offering gorgeous bursts of color every day during the spring, summer, and into fall. Crooked Billet is featured and described in beautiful, historic detail in Daniel DeKalb Miller's 2013 book, "Chateau Country: duPont Estates in the Brandywine Valley. Located in the center of Greenville with quick access to major roadways, minutes from downtown Wilmington, Christiana Care and AI duPont Hospitals, and the rolling hills of Delaware's chateau country, the convenience of this location can't be beat. Current taxes for the 4 acre parcel are $16,975 - estimates for subdivided taxes are being calculated. Settlement to be upon Recordation of the Pending Subdivsion.
