Armor HouseIf you asked a local where the top residential location in the Wilmington, Delaware area was, you would learn about Greenville. There are many fine homes here, ranging from the historic to the large newly constructed homes.

Today we are going to tell you about the James Armor House, one of the historic homes which began in the early 19th C as a toll keeper's home on the Lancaster Turnpike. This small stone home on the National Historic Register was expanded twice, in the mid 19th C and again in the early 20th C.

 

The home, however did retain almost 2 1/2 acres of land, which is bordered by trees along 2 sides of this corner lot with a original parlorwinding driveway. With 6 bedrooms and 3 full and 2 half baths on 3 floors, there is plenty of room for gracious living. The original Dutch doors greet us as we enter from the entry porch, and an original fireplace is revealed inside, just as when the home was built. This parlor opens to the left onto the mid-19th C section, James Armor housea large room with another original mantel. This room was once 2 smaller rooms and a door that would have opened to the South.

 

I will continue the story in days to come, but you can see the full description on my website.
