Lovely modern interior, laid-back LL, lush landscaping and lots of space in this Linden Heath home! Tucked in slightly rolling hills of suburbia Pike Creek, this 3BRs/2 1/2 bath raised ranch is perched on edge of cul-de-sac and has zero through traffic, offering serene ambiance. Its stone exterior is accented with black shutters and square landscaped bed dotted with brilliant red, purple and yellow blooms and flowering tree front open patio, while dual-width driveway leads to 2-car garage. Recent updates to home include new 6-panel doors, new front/storm doors, new appliances, and newer windows. Ceramic tile foyer is inviting and made charming by adjacent closet opened up to serve instead as alcove where bench and hooks are practical, and above prints and sconces are pretty! Dove-gray paint modernizes home and wall of gray-patterned wallpaper doubles as wall art. Original rich hardwood floors envelope most of main floor, starting with 4 steps that lead up to hall and principal living space. Hallway straight from foyer features roomy DD pantry and sizable coat closet and leads back to kitchen. Oversized entry to right leads into sunlit LR where 2 big windows on front wall are source of natural light, and welcome views to green, flat front yard and quiet hum of neighborhood. Just beyond through 2nd oversize entrance is dining room/nook, where table adequately fits flushed against wall with accompanying chairs. Tan ceramic tile floor defines boundaries of this updated kitchen of light cherry cabinets with pewter pulls, Corian countertops, charcoal-tone LG/Whirlpool SS appliances with flat cooktop and, between dining nook and kitchen, three windows provide clear views to large, level, private backyard with 6-ft.-fence encircling it. Backyard is ideal for everything from family kickball games and baseball catches to weekend BBQs and parties and picnics! Off LR is door that leads back to BR wing of home, offering easy solution when privacy and peacefulness are desired. Linen closet sits along wide, hardwood hallway. Full bath of light pink-hued and cream tile offers soft and subdued color, and coordinates with oak vanity, tub/shower and trio of pewter bar lighting. 2 secondary BRs tout ample square footage, abundant sunlight, and sizable closets. MBR also has continued hardwood floors and, along with DD closet, has its own private full bath with ceramic tile floor, oak vanity, gold-trimmed shower and 2 matching gold cylinder lights. Off kitchen, steps lead down to newly-painted garage and whimsical, daffodil yellow door with large square glass and interior blinds, and out to screened-in porch. This enchanting space is tucked off main part and features 2 exposed stone walls, soaring ceilings with ceiling fan, and views to tree-edged, open and sure-to-be-enjoyed fenced-in backyard. True delight! LL is sequence of spaces! Large room with waterproof floor and under-steps storage could potentially be nice-size laundry room, since plumbing is already intact, tucked-away office or craft room. Full-fledged living space defines this expansive approximately 35 x 13 FR. Even with oversized sprawling sectional, ottoman and coffee table there is still space that could easily fit pool table, fuse ball table or quite likely both! 3 transom-type windows stretch across one wall, while working stone wood-burning FP dominates back wall. Conveniently, upgraded stone tile floor PR with cherry vanity and granite top, European-style basin and ceramic glass tile backsplash in colors of taupe, chocolate and burnt almond offers convenient usage for screened-in porch, as well as LL. Huge unfinished space is home to shelving and storage, along with W & D, and fitness area. Walkable to Pike Creek Shopping Center and Linden Hill Station, 5 mins. to heart of Hockessin and equally 15 mins. to Newark and Wilmington, this home is positioned to take advantage of its countryside surround, yet be convenient to real-life.
