Welcome to Southridge! This much sought-after development has clustered homes, open fields and woods and almost a mile of streams connecting the east branch and west branch of the Red Clay Creek. This house sits at the top of the hill and has a wonderful view back over the valley. In the summers, one can see the Longwood Garden fireworks display over the next hill. Southridge homes all have the same contemporary Cape Cod design, with mostly wood siding and cedar roofs. Neighbors can frequently be seen walking along the roads and cul-de-sacs and admiring the latest garden blossoms. This house was one of the first built in 1978 and has about 2700 sqft. The front door leads to an open foyer, living room and dining room, with hardwood floors and a cathedral ceiling. The galley kitchen is original and could be readily painted or renovated. The enclosed sunroom is shaded by a great Oak Tree, which predates the house. The back deck is new and has wire rails to not impede the stunning view. The master bedroom is on the same level and has a full and a half bath. There is also a front office, with an open ceiling to the loft, built-in shelves and access to the half bath. The loft could be used as a guest bedroom or art or workspace. There's plenty of light from the skylight above. The loft and downstairs are accessed by a spiral staircase, which is so 1970s! The lower-level den is large with a wood fireplace and walk-in closet and sliders to a private patio. This level also has a guest bedroom, bath, utilities and laundry rooms. The gardens have been lovingly tended to over a 40 year period. It is a five minute drive into Kennett Square with its historic town center, YMCA and library. Longwood Gardens is just over the hill and one can also go to Winterthur, Hagley and the Brandywine River Museum. Located in the wonderfully diverse and rich Kennett Consolidated school system. Southridge is convenient to Wilmington, West Chester and a reasonable commute to Philadelphia.
