Active Under Contract
Welcome to Historic Saint Georges, DE! North side of the C&D Canal, located on a charming street, in the shadow of the Saint Georges Bridge. Walking distance to the Creamery over looking the canal, as well as nature preserves and walking trails that will peak your intrigue and provide lots to discover! The Robinson House, circa 1750’s, has been placed on the National Register of Historic Properties by the US Department of the Interior. This brick and wood frame structure is truly a time capsule of a bye gone era that used to take a different approach to quality of construction, choice of material, and attention to detail that is rarely seen in todays developed society. As you pull up with your horse and buggy, you will be able to tie off onto the hitching post that still remains to this day. Brick paver sidewalk leads to more brick on the slightly elevated front patio leading to main entrance. Across the threshold you will be greeted by a traditional foyer with access to the main living space and other rooms on the first floor. Living room with deep window sills, wrapped in fluted trim with rosette corners and capped off with a wood burning fire place and ornate mantel. Dining room with more detailed trim, chair railing and deep sill window openings. Family room off the dining area with cherry red painted trim and access to driveway side of the structure. Kitchen area is off the rear of the home and offers a blank canvas for one to create their ultimate food preparation and entertainment space. Mud room off the side of kitchen plays host to a full bathroom and laundry facilities, as well as possible pantry storage. Basement is accessed in this area, and has an opposite side bilco door access point. Up the steps to the second level, you will be greeted by a split that leads to a den/home office/nursery type space and then five other bedrooms of ample dimensions. The main bedroom and secondary bedrooms are each adorned with fireplaces and a wall of raised panels in the main space. Full bathroom with claw foot tub and wainscoting services this level. Two more bedrooms off the rear and then a third that can be accessed from the rear steps leading up from the kitchen. Walk up attic space is perfect for storage as well as currently houses one of the two zoned HVAC systems for the home. Main structure has received a brand new tin roof and significant amounts of structural framing and other carpentry repairs since current owner acquired the property. A two car detached garage is located on the right side of the property and another outbuilding is located along the boundary line on the left side. Easement for driveway that allows access between Main St. and Broad St. located on the southern border of the parcel allows for convenience during arrival and departure activities.
