Description

Step back in time with this glorious colonial home known as The Thomas Stevenson House. Situated on a 1/2 acre lot with a park like setting, the brick home was built in 1846 and was joined with the other structures to the rear of the property that included a summer kitchen and a 2 room schoolhouse. Located just off of The Green in downtown Dover, an area that celebrates the history of the state of Delaware. The home sits on a large property which has a huge park like setting in the fenced backyard. It can be accessed from S State Street or a private driveway off of W Water Street. Upon entering the front door the first floor includes a sitting room with a fireplace surrounded by Delft tiles and built in shelves. There is a butlers pantry directly off of the sitting room. Down the hall you will find the dining room with another fireplace and a back stairway to access one of the upstairs bedrooms and sitting room. The cozy kitchen is in the room next to the dining room with another fireplace. To the rear of the kitchen is a laundry room with half bath. Directly off of the laundry room is the former summer kitchen and the original 2 room schoolhouse with side door entry and stairs to one room of the schoolhouse. The entry level of this area could easily be converted to another living area or a first floor bedroom and full bath. Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms in the hall that share a full bath. There is also an inlaw suite complete with full bath and sitting area. Sitting area could be another bedroom. The sitting area and the bedroom both access the stairwell to the dining room. There is also an attic space, perfect for storage. Really unique home that was previously owned by a local historian who lovingly restored it to its original state. The home has only been used as a residence but the current zoning does allow for office space. Conditional uses include shops, bakery, B&B, restaurant, etc.
