Description

This Historic Gem of an Old New Castle home is situated on an elevated site with sweeping, spectacular park and river views! 167 E Second Street is a detached, spacious residence, offering four bedrooms and four full baths, with magnificent views of the Delaware River and river traffic from all three levels! The main floor hosts a living room, a dining room, a full bath and a fabulous gourmet kitchen. Completely remodeled in 2019, the kitchen offers a Wolf 4 burner gas range with a griddle, double wall ovens, stainless steel appliances, ample and beautiful cabinetry ( soft close doors on all ) and a custom-made island with a copper countertop. Truly a chef's delight! The kitchen/dining area has a gas fireplace and a wall of large casement windows overlooking the Delaware River ( viewed over manicured city parkland ) and a huge, beautifully hand-crafted Pennsylvania Bluestone patio. Another room adjacent to the kitchen, used recently as a pantry, can revert to a laundry room easily, with appliance and water hook-ups in place. The second level is home to a riverside private bedroom suite with a full bath, an enormous bedroom/sitting area with a fireplace, and windows wrapping walls to provide breathtaking sunrises. This suite is truly a retreat, from sunrise to sunset. Two additional bedrooms, closet space and another full bath complete this level. The fourth bedroom with a private full bath is on the third level and also enjoys the spectacular river views from the rear of the home. It opens onto a newly installed 15' by 20' composite sundeck that boasts a nearly 180-degree river and landscape view. The home has a full basement with a Bilco walk-out, a laundry center, lots of areas for workshops, and a nicely finished room that can be accessed from the kitchen and used as an office or exercise room! Wood floors throughout, recessed lighting and ceiling fans throughout. Gas heat and central air-conditioning, enjoying a new high-efficiency HVAC installation in 2020! New rubber roof was installed in 2021. Lots of window replacements make this home very energy efficient. You'll have no concerns about flood insurance with this home. It sits outside the 100 and 500 year floodplains! All this, and so much more, is situated in one of the East Coast's most charming riverfront towns. Historic sites with world class museums, casual and fine dining options, antique shops and art galleries are all within a short stroll of 167 East Second Street. Year-round events welcome residents and visitors. A new pier hosts tall ship tours. Battery Park hosts summertime concerts, with blues, jazz, ethnic and opera performances, among others. Charm and history do abound in Historic Old New Castle! This home is convenient to I-95, an Amtrak station, an international airport and the Delaware Memorial Bridge. Don't delay scheduling your private tour. Come capture this treasure of a home and enjoy the lifestyle this special riverfront community offers!
