Peaceful lakeside setting for historic Delaware home

In 19th Century property maps, this home was called "Rolling Prairie" and was known to be the home of a mill owner with a mill on the nearby Christina Creek. This tributary has been turned into a peaceful lake, a perfect setting for this exquisite 4300 sq. ft. historic home. But not only does it feature Flemish bond brickwork, a brick belt course and water table, characteristics of the 18th Century, but it has high end finishes in the up-to-date kitchen and baths.

 

 

I visited the other day and was captivated by the scene of the geese on the lake, flapping their wings and honking. This area is known to be a year-round spot for Canada geese, and they were really enjoying themselves--which you could be doing as you enjoy this lovely home with guest house, 5 car garage, and private setting.
