This is the only American Foursquare style home in historical New Castle. Just one block from the Delaware River, there are river views from the 2nd and 3rd floors. The expansive front porch is shaded by 2 Sycamore trees. You enter into a large foyer that opens onto the living room, which has a decorative gas fireplace. There are oak pocket doors between the living room and dining room. The kitchen has been updated with new granite countertops and freshly painted cabinets. Beyond the kitchen is a full bath and laundry area. Off the foyer, the turned oak staircase leads to 4 bedrooms and a full bath room. The third has a 5th bedroom with full bath and dressing room. The home has hardwood floors and most of the original oak doors and trim. There are bay windows in 2 of the bedrooms, one with window seat storage. The electrical wiring has been updated and approximately 21 windows have been replaced. A heat pump provides air conditioning and forced air heat, but the radiators are intact to preserve the historical nature of the house. There is a detached oversized garage that you access by a shared driveway. This charming home is walking distance from Battery Park, as well as historical attractions, shops and restaurants along cobblestone streets. HOME WARRANTY ON THIS PROPERTY!
