Located in the heart of Landenberg, this property is just a five minute walk from Landenberg’s Historic Village pillars— The Landenberg Store(1872), Landenberg Hotel(c.1900), Church(c. 1900), and retrofitted Pratt Pony Truss style bridge(1899) on the White Clay Creek.
A fixer upper and perfect candidate for rehab loans, this property’s large five bedroom main house (approx 2,232 sqf), cottage style carriage house (572 sqf), spacious four+ car garage (960 sqf), and nature-filled 1.28 acres are a must see for those looking to design their forever home while building instant equity.
A Landenberg Classic, the five bedroom main House (c.1880) originally served as housing for local mill workers for Landenberg’s prosperous garment industry at the turn of the century. Last updated in the 1980’s, a large extension seamlessly preserved the original hardwood floors of the living room and dining room on the first floor, two second floor bedrooms, and attic with the basement (added 1901). The 1980’s extension added a sun-room, large open kitchen and living area, dedicated laundry/storage room, walk-in dry pantry, bathroom, and enclosed back porch on the first floor.
The second floor additions include three unique high ceiling bedrooms (two featuring spacious lofts) and full bath to compliment the two original bedrooms and attic.
Adding to this one-of-a-kind property sits the in-law style cottage (572 sqf) with enclosed front porch (96 sqf) located off and behind the main house. Complete with original and well preserved hardwood floors and cabinets the cottage requires updating. Already equipped with its own and separate utility box and postal address, this quaint dwelling could be updated to serve as a rental apartment for passive income, guest house or even an art studio or workshop.
A large driveway leads up to the huge 960 sqf two large door, four+ car garage with additional loft storage space and work area. Completely rebuilt in 2008 the garage, complete with its own utility box, could also potentially serve as a workshop or business.
The remaining well over half acre is a natural paradise. A large field is lined by a charming and peaceful flowing creek. Near fully surrounded by nature, the property offers a private sanctuary just 15 minutes from popular restaurants, local & national retailers like Walmart with grocery stores close by in every direction. Three home improvement stores are less than a 20 minute round trip from the property. Only a 10 minute drive from Lowe’s, 8 minutes to locally owned J&L Building Materials and 5 minutes to Tractor Supply Co.
A must see to fully appreciate their potential— The historic main house, cottage, and garage stand tall on strong and time-tested bones—now ready for their newest makeover and next chapter in their long story.
