Off-the charts charm in the heart of historic New Castle! Herringbone-style brick sidewalks, tree-line streets, and brick front steps with black wrought-iron railing precede this delightful 3BRs/1 ~ bath 1910-built 2-story home. Step into this century-plus twin home and appreciate earlier-era architecture beautifully blended with today~s modern-life amenities and neutral palette. Front room is spacious and sun-drenched thanks to the double window on front wall where natural light streams in and enhances... rich random-width gradated hardwood floors. Extra-wide baseboards are throughout lending depth, while beautiful floor-to-ceiling brick FP with handsome wood mantle is focal point of room offering warmth and standing as welcoming element. It~s easy to envision array of comfortable seating of couches and chairs around the FP and all enjoying a cozy fire on a cold winter~s eve. Home echoes traditional front-to-back floor plan of rooms defined and separate, with DR just beyond front room. Hardwoods, wide baseboards and ivory paint continue in DR with addition of wrought-iron ceiling light. Quaint ambiance reigns here as well with steps with carpeting, leaving partial handsome hardwood exposed, and wood railing. True to floor-plan kitchen is past DR and features roomy dining area. Natural wood ceiling, wood block countertops and white cabinets offer rustic appeal, while SS appliances and sleek subway tile backsplash brings modern touch. Laundry room is tucked just off kitchen and features string of wood cabinets so supplies can be easily stored, as well as PR with cream vanity and natural wood mirror. Upper level is home to 2 secondary BRs, both with carpeted floors, wide baseboards and sizable closets, with one of the 2 BRs featuring lovely wall-to-wall built-ins of open shelving and cabinets beneath. It~s both practical and pretty! Display books, photos and pottery on shelves, and use cabinets for space-saving storage. MBR is not only large, but also boasts the 2nd floor-to-ceiling brick FP of the home as well as 2 full closets. A true delight! Full bath touts cherry cabinetry, subway tile tub/shower and wood ceiling repeated from main level. Backyard is enchanting. Generous screened-in porch off back of home is bound to be a crowd pleaser for 3-season enjoyment. Charming branch-style fencing circles perimeter of yard with shrubs interspersed. Dual-door shed is perfect for stashing outdoor equipment, gardening tools and children~s outside toys. Home is walkable to town, shops, cafes and the hub-of-the-town Battery Park. Enjoy a picnic. Watch ships sail up and down the river. Fly a kite. Play Frisbee. Go for a walk, jog or bike ride along the paved pathway. Relish picturesque waterfront views of the Delaware River and unwind, decompress and relax. Home has old-world charm with new appeal!
