Property Description

Set among other properties of similar importance, Shadowbrook is one of the last remaining estates of substantial size in the Centreville-Greenville area. The sprawling 152 acres of unrestricted land are comprised of farm acreage, both open land and woods, a waterfall, a creek and a nearly seven acre pond. Shadowbrook includes the Main house, Tower house, Pool house, Gate house, a Farmhouse duplex, and a Mill house as well as two masonry horse barns. Perched atop one of the highest points in Delaware sits the distinguished Main house, built in the Okie style of architecture, boasting approximately 12,000 square feet of living space, ten bedrooms, ten bathrooms, formal living and dining rooms, numerous guest quarters and main kitchen plus catering kitchen. Various living areas both indoors and out are also found. No detail has been spared crafting this exquisite home. The crowning glory of the house is the elliptical stair, a replica of the Montmorenci stair now located at Winterthur Museum. The stately library is paneled in rare Butternut. Throughout the home you will find original brass hardware, wide plank hardwood floors, museum quality millwork, denticulated and stepped crown molding as well as intricately designed fireplaces and mantels uniquely designed for each room. The Main house has been modernized with sensitivity to it's history, and can compare with the most energy efficient homes built today. Constructed with stone exterior walls, the Main house has stood the test of time. The roof of the Main house is a Ludowici ceramic tile roof that is fire resistant, entirely renewable, chemical free and one that will last well over fifty years. Six Geothermal systems were installed in 2017. The home has six heat zones and five central air zones including a high velocity zone. The Propane generator will back up the geothermal systems, the kitchen, the water heater and various outlets. The electrical service has been upgraded to a 400 AMP service and the home has been rewired. These modern mechanical upgrades result in lower utility bills and create a more energy efficient home. Shadowbrook is a charming country estate that has been lovingly cared for and cherished by the families who have had the pleasure of calling it their home. We invite you to take in the panoramic views of this bucolic estate and to tour this magnificent home.
