What a difference location can make! Backing to historic Brandywine Springs Park, the 85 acres that would become The Cedars is one of the first planned communities known as a trolley suburb. At the turn of the last century, the trolley, or streetcar, allowed people to live outside the city of Wilmington but have easy access to transportation in order to commute for work or pleasure. Unlike other developments of the time, there was no "builder tie-in." Residents purchased their lot and were free to hire a builder of their choice or build it themselves. For this reason, The Cedars comprises a wide assortment of architectural styles. The inviting front porch with its Trex decking greets visitors and offers a delightful spot to sit and relax. Comfortable living is immediately evident upon entry into this handsomely modernized Victorian-style twin. The updated interior offers many wonderful features including original four- and six panel wooden doors, large windows, original woodwork, wood floors, lots of storage, and a terrific walk-up attic just awaiting your finishing touches! Equally charming, the well-sized formal living room and adjoining dining room are the perfect venue for entertaining family and friends. The spacious eat-in kitchen features a new five-burner gas range and new overhead microwave, tile flooring, custom countertops, double sink, ceiling fan, and lots of cabinets. Further investigation of the main level leads you to a laundry room and full bath off the kitchen as well as an enclosed side porch with direct access to the large, fenced-in yard. Upstairs you will discover three generously sized carpeted bedrooms and a full hall bath with many updates. A usable basement and ample off-street parking are two additional highlights. Add on the close proximity to major roadways, shopping, dining, and parkland, and this could be just the right home for you!
