Description

A quality built Cape home offering both charm & convenience on a quiet & desirable Newark location, and yet only steps away from University of Delaware's main campus. Featuring a flowing floor plan, these three bedrooms and two full baths home offers 2000 sq. ft. of desirable living space. The inviting front entrance offers a cozy screened-in front porch that opens to the spacious living area. Adjacent to the living room is a large dining room that flows into the updated eat-in kitchen that features a bay window, ample quality wood cabinetry, and overlooks the spacious rear deck & yard. In addition, the main level offers two nice size bedrooms separated by a full bath, all of which feature gleaming hardwood floors with the exception of the hallway bath. A staircase leads you to a wonderful 2nd floor area that was most recently utilized as an owner’s suite consuming the entire upper level & features a full bath, ample closet space, and storage areas. This upper space, also with solid hardwood flooring, offers many living options depending on a new owner’s vision. Other notable features include that the home backs up to Newark parkland, vinyl replacement windows throughout, a new roof was professionally installed approximately 10 years back, 2-zone central A/C, and a full basement. Currently the home has a Newark Rental permit, but with this very desirable UofD location and many surrounding owner occupied homes, it also would be a wonderful private residence as it once was. A wonderful Newark location, that offers the best of both city & suburban living.
