Exceptional once-in-a-lifetime opportunity in this very special property offering. Current owners built this amazing custom reproduction of a post and beam barn conversion as if they were staying forever. Designed by award winning architect, Arqitecture, this specific home was the AIA Delaware Honor Award Winner in 2012. Very ahead of its time, the layout is exceptionally efficient and streamlines flexible lifestyle living for the single, couple or family. Upon stepping foot on the timber framed covered porch and patio, one feels like they are in an incredible modern/rustic entertaining space. The main level is one entire great room concept for ease of living and inclusive gathering with 9' ceilings, reclaimed 100+ year old 10 barn board flooring, distressed 100+ year old antique bead board ceiling, and incredible gourmet kitchen with huge antique reclaimed wood soapstone surface island. The structure features 100+ yr old heavy timber columns and support beams with mortise and tenon joinery open to the interior staircase and also exterior covered patio. The beautiful glass doors and windows throughout offer light flooded rooms and pastoral views. The kitchen is truly a chef's dream with a dual fuel Wolf range, subzero refrigerator/freezer, Rohl faucets and over the range pot filler, huge walk in pantry, Bosch dishwasher, custom carved backsplash and more. The exterior property has been home to large formal gatherings, parties and celebrations. The upper part of the backyard features a basketball court with lights/electricity and water! There are two outbuildings - one is a semi-custom free standing one car garage storage barn replicating the detached garages of the craftsman era of the 1920's, and the second is a custom built playhouse/potting shed or artist studio with electricity. There is far too much included to mention - this is a must see property in every way. If you were waiting for something very special and unique, do not delay. There is nothing in Delaware like this for under $700k. This home could not be reproduced with this quality and finishes for this price!
