Two red-brick townhouses built in the mid-1800s were joined in 1900 to create this elegant single-family home a few steps from historic Rockford Park and a short stroll to Rockford Park, the Delaware Art Museum and the shops and restaurants of Trolley Square. The family room with dramatic cathedral ceilings has French doors leading to the private patio and red-brick courtyard. A cozy den is outfitted with a stone fireplace and wet bar, perfect for entertaining guests. With plenty of charm and historic character, this Wilmington home is perfect for those who want both the convenience of walkable attractions and the comfort of a quiet neighborhood.
