Set back in the cul-de-sac on a private road, this house has privacy yet is convenient to everything. Centered between the Fair Hill Training Center, host of the CCI5* Equestrian Event, one of only two such events annually in the United States, and Newark, home of the University of Delaware, you are just minutes away from shopping , entertainment and major north/south routes. Walk up the front steps to the covered porch just made for rocking chairs. As you enter the huge foyer there is a large, formal dining room to your left. Straight ahead is the great room with soaring ceilings and a two-sided fireplace shared with the kitchen. The great room has tons of windows and opens onto the back deck for easy access to the outdoors. The kitchen, more like an old fashioned Keeping Room, is the heart of the home. There is a built-in eating area with tons of windows, the large cooking area with an island and more seating, and best of all, a sitting area around the double-sided fireplace for guests to keep you company as you prepare a festive meal. This area also has access to the garage, laundry room, pantry and tons of storage. Also on the main level is an impressive Primary Suite with custom woodwork, tray ceiling , lots of windows and access to its own private deck with a hot tub. The en-suite bath has radiant floor heat, a two-person tiled shower, soaking tub with chandelier above and a huge walk-in closet with custom storage systems installed. Rounding out the first floor is another full bath and a second bedroom, or office if you so desire. At the top of the stairs is a roomy teen suite with dormer windows, full bath and huge walk-in closet. Down the hall are two more ample bedrooms with a Jack-and-Jill bath. Between these two rooms is a large bonus room to be used as a guest room for sleepovers, toy room, craft area...you choose. Not to be overlooked upstairs is an ample, walk-in closet for easy storage of your household linens, and access to a stand-up storage area under the eaves. The basement is unfinished but has been set up by the owners as a fun entertainment space for playing pool, entertaining guests and just hanging out. There is a garage door that opens to the outside for inside-outside entertaining. It even has a screen to cover it! The exterior of the home has a large deck, a secluded firepit in the woods, and tons of room to explore. The hot tub, water filtration system and carpet in the great room have been recently upgraded. The top-of-the-line geothermal system and low taxes make this home economical to run. What else could you want?
