DISTINCTION. 261 West Main Street in Newark, Delaware, is a distinctive and captivating residence that has graced this notable college town for over a century. A northeast facing front entry is the starting point for your tour of this magnificent architectural gem. Warm and inviting, this truly exceptional and appropriately adorned vintage 1909 home has many sophisticated and spacious rooms with fine, eye-catching details that are great for formal and informal entertaining. The same must be said of the extraordinary covered patio and meticulously landscaped exterior which are as awe-inspiring as the interior. The professionally designed landscape surrounds the property and delights the eye! Additional benefits of ownership are numerous, including updated kitchen with stainless steel appliances, three floors of living space, expansive multi-entry screened porch, three fireplaces, four full baths, built-ins, crown molding, Pella windows, and thoughtfully installed central air-conditioning.
