Perhaps the only thing more unique than this custom designed and built architectural marvel is the man who constructed it - Captain Harry "Mizzerable" Moody. According to an article in the Village News from 2006 (attached,) Captain Moody found and salvaged an impressive array of materials that included beams from a barge stranded in the James, insulation from old Safeway Grocery freezers, and bricks from an old Sussex County home. The home was affectionately nicknamed "Widower's Delight" since the builder owner was unsure as to whether his spouse would agree to live their. She did and now the home is ready for the next caretaker of eclectic homes to move in and fall in love. Finding this much home with this kind of solid construction at this price is virtually impossible in the Chester area. It took four years to carefully construct this modern marvel on a quiet wooded lot with a stream through the heart. The result presents more of a mountain lodge getaway than the quiet surrounding suburban neighborhood would suggest. A spiral staircase, large windows and the original "sunken' living room with a fireplace is just the beginning. Come see what Mizzerable Moody created for you.
