Square feet



Rich in history this magnificent du Pont estate home has been host to several prominent, local families and has had nationally known guests such as Franklin D. Roosevelt. Okie details that have been meticulously restored and enhanced fill the halls of this striking Centreville residence. This truly unique stone manor is situated on a lush 3.5+ acre lot filled with professionally landscaped beds, a paver-lined winding drive, and mature foliage that all sits behind an elegant front gate. As you enter through the stately front door of the main home you are greeted by rich herringbone patterned wood floors, incredibly detailed moldings, and unique built-ins in the main center hall. A cozy formal living room and parlor boast beautifully detailed paneled walls, ornate ceilings, and cozy fireplaces to warm up next to on a cold winter’s day. The breakfast room is adorned with stone flooring which flows seamlessly into the tastefully renovated kitchen which hosts floor-to-ceiling custom cabinetry, an expansive center island, Calcutta gold marble counters, and a wet bar. Cook like a pro on the top-of-the-line stainless steel Viking appliances,and enjoy your morning coffee from the Bosch coffee station. The formal dining room sits beyond, anchored by a marble surround wood-burning fireplace and arched built-in display cabinets. A sizeable family room and cherry-paneled study complete the first floor and provide direct access to the seasonal porch and rear gardens. This home hosts two separate primary bedroom suites alongside five secondary bedrooms and six spa-inspired Carrera marble bathrooms. The outdoor area includes an in-ground flagstone pool, adjoining patio, koi pond, and tennis courts. This home is finished with a media room and fitness room. Perfectly situated in the rolling hills of the Brandywine Valley, it is easily accessible to both Philadelphia and Wilmington. With close proximity to major thoroughfares, while still feeling extremely private and secluded from the outside world, this location truly cannot be beaten. Two adjacent lots are available for purchase and would increase the size of the full holding to a little under 8 acres.
