End of Row/Townhouse
Welcome to 228 Birch Avenue in the historic town of Elsmere, Delaware. Incorporated as a town in 1909, real estate is the heart of this community. In 1886 a real estate developer named Joshua Heald bought farmland to be used for building the stylish new homes of the time—homes we still cherish today. This two-story, end-of-row townhome sits on a flat lot on a one-way tree-lined street and features all the desirable comforts expected of a twenty-first century modern home, including central air-conditioning (new in 2014), replacement windows with a transferrable warranty, hardwood and sensible laminate flooring, granite countertops, a glass-tile backsplash, an open pantry, and stainless-steel appliances in the kitchen. Additional highlights include lighted ceiling fans, gas cooking, a powder room on the main level, lightly colored walls throughout, and a partially finished walk-out basement. A large (16x14) sun-filled bonus room off the kitchen can accommodate a variety of needs. A new roof was installed in 2019. The rear deck will be professionally re-built and extended with new angled steps prior to closing. With a convenient location near the Elsmere Bark Park, shopping, public transportation, and I-95, 228 Birch Avenue is an excellent choice for your new home.

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.
