An ideal setting just a short walk to Historic Centreville, this 1930s Foursquare home with an impressive modern addition is a rare and unique offering for the discerning buyer. The stately front porch, crown molding, tall baseboards, and deep windowsills accentuate the vintage of the original home, while the great room with cathedral ceiling, linear gas fireplace, and vaulted owner’s suite, provide comfortable living for today’s lifestyle. A resplendent cook’s kitchen is loaded with cabinets and large drawers, honed and polished granite surfaces, designer appliances, wine/coffee/entertaining bar, and a massive waterfall butcher block island. Abundant light fills the entire space making it indeed the heart of the home. The living room has built-in bookcases flanking a wood-burning fireplace, French doors leading to a separate dining room, and a generous foyer hall with office space, a powder room, and first-floor laundry. Upstairs the owner’s suite is complemented by vaulted ceilings, a large walk-in closet, and an ensuite bathroom with a tiled walk-in shower. There are two additional bedrooms, a full bath, and an office with walk-up attic access. Additional features of this home include 4-zone central heating and air, Toto toilets, Grohe fixtures, Hue smart and designer lighting, historically accurate door trim and moldings, hardwood floors throughout, glass doorknobs, and many other features beautifully reflecting the craftsmanship of a bygone era, with updates for modern living. Extra space and storage can be found in the attic, basement, crawl space, and a 2-car detached garage with workshop. This home is cleverly disguised in the back with mature-growth trees and stacked stone walls, surrounding a slate patio with a private space for relaxing or entertaining. 12 Gregg Avenue cultivates a feeling of calm and comfort, and yet is within walking distance to the restaurants, boutiques, and businesses of Historic Centreville and surrounded by hiking trails and the beauty of the Brandywine Valley. Welcome Home.
