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) 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.

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.
The Community Educational Index chart is based on the U.S. Census Bureau's Socioeconomic Status (SES) elements. Factors used in creating the index below are income, educational achievement, and occupation of persons within the selected ZIP code.
