An hour and a half to Rehoboth Beach, 25 minutes to downtown Wilmington, 5 minutes from the new Bear Library and Governor's Square shopping center with over 40 stores and restaurants, the over 200-year-old estate once called "Rolling Prairie" has stepped into the new millennium with ease. Not only will you find the most up to date systems and appliances, but there are 5 garage bays for your boat and trailer, a workshop, and large vehicle storage. Not only that, but you can sit on your screened porch and catch the breeze from the lake which forms one edge of this 3.3-acre lot. So why is this home special? It has all the characteristics of the fine historic manor home, which it certainly qualifies for. Enter the center hall with a formal parlor on one side and on the other, a beautiful dining room, both with fireplaces and built-in cupboards. Then enter the kitchen with a walk-in fireplace, glass front cupboards, granite countertops, stainless appliances, pot filler, 6 burner gas cook top, wine refrigerator and a separate breakfast room with skylight and windows overlooking the lake. Through the kitchen is a large living room with corner fireplace and built in bookcases. French doors lead to the screened porch, and there is an adjacent exercise room. The graceful center hall staircase leads to the second floor with 3 bedrooms, 3 baths and 2 fireplaces. The master has an over 10' tray ceiling and secret door leading up to the large attic. There is a master bathroom/spa fit for royalty with jetted tub, large walk-in shower, separate dressing area with crystal sconces. This leads to the laundry room with adjacent sauna for your relaxing pleasure. Adjacent is a greenhouse room and large walk-in closet. There is a deck outside the screened porch with a hot tub and in-ground pool, plus access to a pool kitchen on the lower level of the house with his and hers bathrooms with showers. There is also a 2 bedroom guest house on the property. Lake Drive is a private compound with this historic home and 2 newer homes on the lakefront. Please do not disturb the privacy of the owners of the 2 homes closest Providence Dr., 7 Lake is the last house and is entered from the side opposite the other 2 homes and faces the pool and carriage houses.
