You may have to blink before you realize that The W. H. Mitchell House, C. 1780 is not a model home, but a late 18th century farmhouse. This historic home at 5305 New Linden Hill Rd. in the Pike Creek area of Wilmington has been transformed into a sophisticated retreat on a hilltop above everything, but convenient to shopping and transportation. The main floor features a living room, den, large kitchen, dining room and sunroom. There are 3 bedrooms, a laundry room, dressing room, and 2 baths on the 2nd level and a 4th bedroom and bath tucked away on the 3rd level. You will wonder at the creativity involved here, both by the builder over 200 years ago, and the present owners. There are pegged beams in the attic, stone arches on the first floor, and the cellar’s stone floor leads to a root cellar and remains of a hand dug well. More details on this historic Delaware home for sale are available.
