Property Description

Welcome to 1017 Bellevue Ave, a beautiful and unique 1920's all brick 3 bed, 2 full bath stand alone at the end of a quiet street in charming Bellefonte situated in North Wilmington. With a perfect combination of old world charm, and modern updates, this home retains the character and detail work of its original 1920's construction, and adds the conveniences and amenities that we desire in a home today. Period detail work abounds with original doors and knobs, stunning dining room chandelier, sconces, walnut mill work and moldings, and gleaming hardwood floors. Modern upgrades begin with the completely renovated front composite deck, the perfect spot to relax on the swing bench, and watch the world go by. In through the front door you step into a living room that oozes charm with chestnut wood banisters, windows, railing and flooring. Simply beautiful! On to the dining room with its beautiful original chandelier, there is plenty of room to host a dinner party or family gathering. Upgraded kitchen includes new counters and back splash, stunning antique Magic Chef gas stove and cook top, and includes a butler's pantry with lots of room for storage. Off the back of the kitchen is an addition (1993) that includes a lovely family room with built in book shelves, wood burning fireplace, ceiling fan, slider to the landscaped back yard, and skylight which provides heaps of natural light. The first floor addition also includes a dedicated laundry room, and updated full bath. Moving upstairs, there are 3 ample sized bedrooms, new carpet throughout, and a newly renovated full bathroom with tiled tub and shower, wainscoting, tiled floor, vanity, and lighting. In the waterproofed basement you'll find french drain system (2017), sump pump, newer forced air gas heater (no radiators!), hot water heater (2017), and heaps of space for storage. A nicely landscaped and partially fenced backyard round out this gem in Bellefonte. Additional upgrades and amenities include replacement windows, small back deck, 1 car detached garage (lots of storage!) and driveway. Extremely well located to I-95, 495, 202, City of Wilmington, Bellevue Park, and all of the shopping conveniences of North Wilmington, and not to mention the charming cafes, antique stores and shops within Bellefonte itself, this home is absolutely close to all. Make your appointment today! Detached garage, and all appliances sold "as is". Public Records may not accurately reflect square footage.
