There are those special homes that you pass by on a regular basis & imagine what it would be like to live there with the hopes that one day it would come on market. The time has come for this iconic Pre-Revolutionary War North Wilmington home known as Colonial Hearth or the Carr house. This stunning stone home was built in three sections as the needs of the families changed over the years. The original construction in 1688 comprised of a 2 room structure, 1 room down & 1 room up, which is now the kitchen & bedroom above. Built on a land grant from William Penn the parcel at that time included 400 acres. Over time land was sold & the current lot is a more manageable size of just over 1 acre. The first addition was added in the early 1700's. The third and final addition was constructed in 1768 and is marked by a cornerstone. The home changed families several times throughout the years that it was run as a plantation & during the modern era with the size of the property decreasing over time & electricity & indoor plumbing being added in 1927. Each addition still has a nod to the era in which it was built with the simplicity of the lines in the original one room structure, to the curved walls and large fireplace, and the woodwork flush with the walls. The modernization of the home continued throughout years with each subsequent owner. During the current 50+ year ownership, the traditional colonial style was preserved while making changes to provide for the enjoyment of the family. The formal gardens were altered to include an in-ground pool & pool house, storm windows on first floor replaced, completely renovated kitchen & mudroom, bathroom updates, professional landscaping, & more. The 1st floor offers screened in porch, eat-in kitchen, dining room with oversized fireplace, front to back living room, family room, study, & powder room. The 2nd floor is host to bedroom suite with private bath, three additional bedrooms, & a full hall bath. Finished third floor has a bedroom with private bath as well as a bonus room once used as a Billiards room. There are seven fireplaces in the home adding charm and character. Outside the pool house offers a three season room which can be used in cooler temperatures by use of the fireplace. The 3 car attached garage is an unexpected asset for a home of this vintage. Don't miss your opportunity to own a bit of rare Wilmington history convenient to everything that makes N. Wilmington a desirable place to call home.
