    Description

    Welcome to 17 Walnut Ridge Rd. This beautiful midcentury modern home is set on a secluded 2.3 acre wooded lot with native species gardens in front of the house and incredible views of the wooded valley to the rear. When you arrive, you will immediately feel like you are out in nature, far away from the stress of modern life. But in reality this private location is just 15 minutes from downtown Wilmington to the south and Kennett Square to the north, and just 5 minutes from Centerville and Greenville. Enter the home into the brick floored front hall. You will find the updated kitchen to the left with updated countertops, new cabinets made from renewable green materials, stainless steel appliances, and a commercial gas range. To add to the great interior features of this kitchen, this room has nice views of the native-plant gardens and front patio. At the end of the kitchen is the breakfast nook, with floor-to-ceiling bay windows also overlooking the gardens. The kitchen and breakfast nook flow seamlessly into the open concept dining room and living room. The wood-burning fireplace makes this large space feel very cozy and comfortable. The living room features breathtaking views of the wooded valley behind the home, with plenty of wildlife and no other houses to be seen. On the other side of the front hall you will find two guest bedrooms, guest bathroom, laundry room, and the original master bedroom with en suite bathroom. The current owners moved the master bedroom to the second floor, but left the original intact, offering a great option for buyers looking for a first floor master bedroom or an in-law suite. Both the first floor master bath and the guest bath were just renovated this year and feature spectacular craftsmanship. The new master bedroom on the second floor provides a very private location, away from guests. The recently renovated master bathroom features a stall shower, double sinks, and a walk in closet. The master bedroom features an additional walk in closet and more breath taking views of the valley. Also on the second floor you will find the second floor family room. Continuing with the theme of this home, this room too has incredible views of nature. The family room has the potential to be used as a den, office, master suite sitting room, or 5th bedroom. When you are finished enjoying the second floor, head to the lower level. On the left side of the stairway you will find the lower level family room. This space is below grade on the front side of the house, but walks out onto the rear patio and rose garden. The lower level family room also offers a half bath. This space would make a great bar room, home theatre, or man-cave. On the right side of the stairway you will find the utility room and work shop. The shop has a large garage door making it a great space for hobbyists, craftsmen, or weekend-warriors looking for a workspace and tool storage. When you are done enjoying the house, make sure you take a walk around the back yard, rose garden, and walking trails to experience all the natural beauty of this property. In addition to the newly renovated bathrooms, this home features new plumbing and radiator systems.
