Description

Welcome to one of DE's oldest communities: Wooddale where you'll access this DE treasure by crossing one of only 3 covered bridges in the entire state. This historic community was former site of the Delaware Rolling Mills complex which once stood proudly along the Red Clay Creek. Now a lucky homeowner can live rich with history as they take advantage of this well cared for and updated charmer of yesteryear. Just shy of the covered bridge is the Wilmington and Western Railroad. A 10 mile stretch of track which meanders along the Red Clay Creek and brings lots of nostalgia to our 200+ year history of the area. Love to go go tubing in the summer time? Walk right down to the creek and take advantage of the loop of almost a mile which drops you just as you began to start again. The property spans just shy of 2 acres of land you'll have lots of open space to plant your garden, cut your own wood for the working wood stove and fireplace or just enjoy the serenity the space allows. Back inside you'll marvel over the rebuilt front, covered porch and many charms of the original 1810 home. On the first floor is your large living room, kitchen, family room and dining room while upstairs (two more floors) are 4 bedrooms with a master suite which includes an enormous walk-in closet, private bathroom and so much more. Up another flight of steps you'll be on the 3rd floor of this magnificent home and enjoy two more bedrooms and another updated full bathroom. There are so many nooks and crannies it's difficult to point them all out. Come take a look for yourself and make your own history in this historic home.

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.
