Description for 1013 Overbrook Road Wilmington, DE 19807
An opportunity to buy into Westover Hills Woods for less than $400,000 can be yours! This 1936 General Electric New American "Moto-home" was created in a style that was ahead of its time. Featured in the Wilmington News Journal as a "modern marvel" the home was open for tours for a month after its completion. Over 12,000 people visited the home that featured "light and exposure" with oversized casement windows allowing ample sunlight, and an "all electric" showcase for GE products. The home was built with steel frame construction and prefabricated insulating panels that were innovative for its time and today signify this period of mid-century construction. The home has seen some of the effects of time and the interior damage from roof leaks will need to be repaired. However the Roof is NEW, replaced in 2017 with a 10 year warranty. The home offers 4 generous bedrooms, and 3 full bathrooms, including one on the main level. The kitchen was updated in 2008 and includes granite counters and upscale appliances such as a 6-burner Dacor gas stove and oven, plus a 2nd in-wall oven and microwave and a built-in beverage refrigerator. The gas line that runs to the home also fuels the hot water heater; the primary heat source is oil. Central air works efficiently throughout the home. The basement had a French drain and 2 sump pumps added in 2007. The bones of professional landscaping completed in 2009 by DiSabatino are still visible including specimen trees, irrigation and hardscaping. This home will be a fun project for someone with appreciation of the history and mid-century modern style. The home is being sold in "as-is" condition, is priced with consideration to the repairs that are needed and as such is a great entry point to the Greenville community. After the interior damage is repaired, the bathrooms are updated, and you add your own stylistic touch to the d?cor, you will again have a unique mid-century modern showplace in the desirable community of Westover Hills Woods, convenient to Greenville and access to parts north and south. Come tour the property today and see for yourself!
