    Property Details

    CONSERVATION BUYERS: This extraordinary 14 acre property located in the heart of Chateau Country has just been placed under a conservation easement with the Delaware Nature Society. Once known as the D. W. Taylor Farm, the core of the six bedroom house was built in late Eighteenth or early Nineteenth Century, with the addition of a Second Empire ell in the late Nineteenth or early Twentieth Century. Existing architectural details include such things as rounded and splayed windows, reed-paneled interior doors, sawtooth and bargeboard porch trim and Victorian electroplated door hardware. The Carriage House has an open downstairs bay and two small rooms upstairs ? great for an arts studio or writing loft! The Tobacco Barn has hand pegged beams and was recently used as a woodworking shop with a poured concrete floor in the main section. It could be used for agricultural, craftsman or artisan purpose, or a spectacular place to display antique cars! The specimen holly tree in the front yard is considered the 2nd oldest in Delaware. Together, this splendid cluster of historic buildings await a new visionary owner to make them into a 21st Century homestead. The property is within walking distance to the Yorklyn arts community and a short drive to Winterthur Museum & Gardens, Hagley Museum, Longwood Gardens, Mt. Cuba Center, Marshall Steam Museum and Delaware Nature Society. It is also an easy commute to Wilmington, Kennett Square or West Chester and the Wilmington train station, and Philadelphia, Wilmington and New Garden airports.
