Monthly Estimate* How much can I afford?

Old is beautiful, and so is this farmhouse! Centrally located in Dover but still nestled within the award-winning Caesar Rodney School District and outside city limits! If you appreciate the features of yesteryear and have a vision for potential, you do not want to miss this home. Gorgeous hardwood floors can be found all throughout the home! On the main floor you will find a mudroom off of the driveway for all of those bookbags, rain boots, and winter coats. Imagine a built-in storage unit in this area with plenty of welcoming space. The large living room has a  wood burning fireplace and built-ins, and opens right up into the adjoining dining room. Off of the galley kitchen is a utility room (need a space for virtual learning?), half bath with laundry, and access to the screened-in porch. Imagine taking in the fall breeze while sipping your coffee (or wine) out on this porch- YES! Upstairs you will find three bedrooms and a full bathroom. There is no shortage of storage as there is a full walk-up attic, full basement, and a detached garage! Outside enjoy all the lush green of the private .69 acres. Plenty of space for the dogs and kids to run around, or to host gatherings. Lots of great improvements have already been completed for you: 2020- Basement dry-locked, gutters cleaned and rerouted spouts away from the house, landscaping/tree removal, freshened up paint, new fixtures in bedrooms and porch; 2019- Main floor AC system installed and all ducts cleaned; 2018- Hardwood floors refinished downstairs; 2017- subflooring in half bath replaced, upstairs plumbing replaced and upstairs bathroom updated; Take a 3D virtual tour: https://www.asteroommls.com/pviewer?token=VGfYCH09ykmJ8t86UIRN4w&hideleadgen=1&autorotation=1&defaultviewdollhouse=1&showdollhousehotspot=1
