Nestled north of Milford, located near Rt. 1 close to the beaches and Dover, sits the waterfront home of an award winning architect. The home received the Delaware Architects Building Green Award in 2005. It was featured in Waterfront Home Magazine and the Delaware Today Magazine. Sitting on 7 acres of forest and wetlands, the home overlooks Browns Branch, a navigable tidal river. The timber frame home was built with durable and sustainable materials and is designed for all ages, including aging-in-place.
The front door off the brick paved breezeway leads into a large kitchen and dining area with tile floors. The kitchen features a center island with seating for 4, built in pantries, and a large built in china cabinet. The dining area has windows overlooking the river to embrace views.
The great room is anchored by towering timber beams and a large tile fireplace with a carved wood mantle. An abundance of windows offers another way to enjoy the views of the river. A French door leads to the mahogany floored river porch. The porch and adjacent brick patio provide outdoor gathering spaces for outdoor eating and socializing.
The media/study room has a built in media cabinet with an included television. Book shelves line a wall. This room is perfect for relaxation and quiet time.
The main bedroom and bath are also on the first floor. The bedroom has built in shelving, built in chest of drawers, and wardrobe cabinets. There is a curved vaulted ceiling and a French door leading to the river porch.
The bathroom has a dual vanity and a walk in shower with a seat. The bath is tiled and has a heated towel rack. A walk in closet, linen closet, and a third closet provide storage.
A mahogany staircase leads to the second floor with cork floors. From the balcony, a ships ladder leads to the belvedere, which gives a 360 degree view of the river and woods.
