Along the quiet and scenic Hess Mill Road near Historic New London sits this idyllic, private 22.5-acre property. Stately access along a half-mile country lane, the driveway fords a stream and winds through a hidden wood to a hilltop clearing where a quaint Cape Cod sits. The owner has installed a vast array of incredible native plantings and natural landscape features. Plus with three tributaries of the wild and scenic White Clay Creek, it s a nature lover s delight! The topography allows the home to be at the perfect setting, high upon the property. Built in 2011, the 2200 sqft house has 3 bedrooms, a large open atrium living room, dining area and kitchen. The living room has an oversized wood-burning stove insert which is able to heat the entire home. There s plenty of firewood to be gathered!

The front porch greets your guests and looks out onto the large gravel parking area and shed. The septic system is oversized and has two drain fields. The property can be subdivided, but is under Act 319. Located in the Avon Grove School District and within commuting distance to Newark, Wilmington or Aberdeen, MD. Showings by appointment only.
