104 Augustine Cut Off, Wilmington, DE 19803-4507 $739,000
Interior Sq. Ft: 3,800
Subdivision: Rock Manor
Lovely hand-crafted stone manor home, minutes from downtown, surrounded by more than an acre of rolling lawns and soaring trees. As convenient to city living and airport getaways as it is isolated from neighbors and noise, this elegant family getaway is a world unto itself. Turn in the drive and the hand-crafted Delaware granite walls usher you in a bygone golden age of craftsmanship. As does the curved staircase in the entrance hall, an arched window set in a turning sill…leading to a house with three stone fireplaces, custom woodwork unique to each room, a full finished basement and an attic that recalls the hold of a Baltimore schooner.
The ambiance is warm, enduring, and grand. Fireplaces create cozy nooks for gatherings and relaxation. A stone porch off the living room and a stone entryway to the kitchen echo the feelings of gravitas and welcome that mark the front of the home. A rear porch and a patio offer peaceful spots to relax and amid the mature plantings that surround this tranquil idyll.
The house is full of charming features that date back to the 1940s: a butler's pantry, a back staircase, a two-story laundry chute, a cedar closet, brass closet light clickers, and a walk-up attic. An en-suite “back bedroom” is the perfect spot for a secluded office or guest suite. The three other bedrooms are each unique in design and features. The bright primary bedroom catches light all day, opening to an airy second-story balcony ready for morning coffee or a nap in the sun. The home's solid bones--plaster walls, hardwood floors, expansive proportions, and lovingly preserved original design--offer a canvas for your creative renovations and upgrades. The formal dining room, adorned with chair rail, wainscoting, and a wall of windows welcomes celebrations and cherished moments. High ceilings, french doors, a bay window, and stone fireplace combine to compose a grand living room. The stone fireplace in the extensive finished basement adds character and warmth to the lower level, offering even more potential for customization.
Convenience meets historic charm, as this property is situated close to I-95, offering easy access to major cities such as New York, Washington D.C., and Philadelphia, as well as a 17-minute ride to an international airport. Yet, it retains a sense of serenity, set back from the road and enveloped by a large, flat lot that holds endless possibilities. With its beautiful entryway and turned staircase, study with stone fireplace and built-ins, and a rear-entry garage with covered access to the kitchen, this home awaits your vision and personal touch. Embrace the potential, make it your own, and create a warm, inviting haven that honors its rich history while accommodating the modern lifestyle you desire. Welcome home to a world of possibilities! Home is being sold in as-is condition; seller will not make any repairs or concessions. Square footage and room sizes provided are estimated. The agent will be uploading interior professional photos.

Climate and Weather
The Temperature chart displays average high and low values for January and July, and is designed to provide an indication of both seasonal and daily temperature variability. The Weather Risk Index indicates the calculated risk of each type of weather event occurring in the future. This risk is based on historical localized storm events and weather patterns. The national average for each type of weather event equals a score of 100, so a score of 200 would represent twice the risk as the national average, and a score of 50 would represent half the risk of the national average.
