There were so many unique homes sold in our area this year, and we had a great time looking through them to find some of our favorites. The detail, thought, and care that people put into their properties to make them homes, is one our favorite things about the real estate business. We love to help clients find the perfect space. Read on, to see some of our favorites homes that sold nearby this year.
Our Favorite: Expensive Home
17 Selborne Dr, Wilmington, DE
This was the most expensive home that sold in New Castle County this year. Aptly named after its original owner, The Henry Canby House was originally built by this Yale professor and his wife, poet, Marion Ponsonby Canby. The estate is walking distance to the village of Centreville. The main house is classically built with old world charm and modern amenities. The property also includes two guests houses and a spring fed pond! We expected an outstanding kitchen, and this one doesn't disappoint. What I love most is the uniquely finished basement that includes a wine cellar and tasting room, home gym, theater and family room.
