Property Description

Welcome to 162 Sheehan Road, A one-of-a-kind home near Pennsylvania-Delaware border. The home boasts several outbuildings with special architectural features dating back to the early to mid 19th century. Inside, the house showcases exquisite architectural details from the era, featuring elegant proportions, nine-foot ceilings, large sash windows with deep window sills, stunning moldings, wood floors, and a central staircase with mural. The front entrance leads to a formal living room with two-toned parquet flooring, a formal dining room, and a charming enclosed porch sitting/exercise room with a powder room. The kitchen boasts custom cabinetry, soapstone counters, a farm-style deep sink and updated appliances, and leads to a second enclosed porch, which serves as a family room with a wood-burning stove. The home is perfect for modern family living, with generous formal and informal living spaces, including two Williamsburg-style brick patios with winding walkways. Upstairs, the staircase leads to a first-floor landing, offloading to the principal bedroom suite, which includes a window-drenched main bedroom and a fully-renovated marble bathroom with a claw-footed jetted tub, shower, and heated floors. There is also a separate walk-in wardrobe. Up a further level, there are two cozy bedrooms with spacious eave storage. The property is fenced and landscaped for privacy, and sits at the end of a dead-end road. Notably, it features the historic Circa 1807 Schoolhouse, currently serving as an on-site office, a 100+ year old barn, a two-car detached garage, and multiple potting, utility, and wood sheds. The property is located in the Unified Development zone of New Garden Twp. and is eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. This home is in a perfect location.
