Overview

Own a piece of Delaware history! A hidden gem in Greenville, original construction of Crooked Billet began c.1700 with a small, two level stone structure that served as a tavern and eventually an inn for wayward travelers. After several additions and renovations, the grand home currently stands as one of the finest duPont estates in the Brandywine Valley. Entering the original tavern room with herringbone patterned brick floor, over-sized fireplace and exposed wood beams, visitors are transported into the eighteenth century. Immediately, details like hand-forged iron strap hinges and detailed wood paneling offer a glimpse of the home's authentic craftsmanship. Twelve inch, 200 year-old heart-of-pine flooring throughout the main level, exquisite built in cabinets and bookshelves, and soaring ceilings and windows have been meticulously cared for over the decades and centuries, preserving this stunning estate. Besides the formal living and dining areas, a library, nine bedrooms, three stairways, a finished third floor, media room, and generous kitchen/wet bar/butlers pantry offers more than enough space for living, cooking, entertaining, and playing. A separate pool house can also function as an in-law suite or guest house. It offers a full kitchen and tavern-style bar, bedroom, full bath, great room with stone fireplace, and huge game room ready for entertaining, exercise, home office, and more. Outside, a screened in porch overlooks the flagstone patio and pool. There is a 2 bedroom apartment above the detached Carriage Style Garage. Mature gardens bloom throughout the season, offering gorgeous bursts of color every day during the spring, summer, and into fall. Crooked Billet is featured and described in beautiful, historic detail in Daniel DeKalb Miller's 2013 book, Chateau Country: duPont Estates in the Brandywine Valley. Located in the center of Greenville with quick access to major roadways, minutes from downtown Wilmington, Christiana Care and AI duPont Hospitals, and the rolling hills of Delaware's chateau country, the convenience of this location can't be beat. Although most recent taxes for entire 28 acre property were $28,000, with subdivision we expect taxes to be in the $16,000-$18,000 range; will be posted 1/1/2018
