    Description Tours

    Historic and gracious Rockford Village converted double townhouse (twin) to single family home with updates throughout the spacious and elegant home. The extra lot creates a private oasis of fenced courtyards and quiet spaces. Originally built in the mid-1800s, Rockford Village was fully renovated into a premier Wilmington community in the 1970s. This unique home was born when two townhouses (69 & 71 Ivy with the Rockford Rd parcel included) became one. The lovely entry with open stair case provides access to the Tuscan design kitchen with wonderful work spaces, terra cotta tile floor and top-flight appliances and a mix of granite & butcher block counters. There is a main level powder room and laundry with access to the unfinished basement from the kitchen. The kitchen opens to a comfortable living room with a wall of built-ins and hardwood floors and back stairs to the 2nd level. The formal dining room is adjacent to the kitchen and features a fireplace set into a beautifully wainscoted wall with hidden storage and overlooking the family room. The dramatic family room with cathedral ceiling, hardwood floor, deep window sills and French doors to the brick courtyard. A step down from the family room is the cozy den or music room with stone fireplace and adjacent wet bar. The tucked away powder room and laundry finish that level. The second floor includes a master bedroom suite with soaring ceiling, recently renovated 4-piece bathroom and adjacent office/sitting room or additional bedroom served by a nearby bathroom. There is a large walk-in closet with extensive organizers and dressing space. An additional tucked away bedroom with private bath rounds out the 2nd floor. The 3rd floor is split, each with separate stairway leading up. One side is a great play area or simply storage. The 2nd side 3rd floor is a great guest-suite or hideaway featuring a bedroom with private bathroom and additional storage. The home is tastefully decorated and beautifully maintained, updated & upgraded. The home provides modern conveniences blended perfectly with historic character plus room to spread out. The charming community is a short walk to Rockford Park, Alapocas Run & the Delaware Art Museum, in addition to Trolly Square restaurants and services. Major systems have been updated in recent years. Property comprised of 3 tax parcels: 26-006.10-054, 26-006.10-047, and 26-006.10-094. Total property taxes for 3 parcels 2022 are approx. $10,981 Showings begin 1/6/23. The seller expects to allow showings through the weekend of 1/7 & 8, but is open to accepting a strong offer at any time.
