Description

Welcome to Northern Delaware's Chateau country, best described as the 1 carat flawless of the Mid Atlantic. Small in stature, but large in lifestyle, Greenville is within 2 hours of the beach, the mountains and both New York City and Washington DC, just 30 minutes to Philadelphia. In 2009, the estate known as "Marimon" was completed after two years of construction, on a fabulous 8.5 acre parcel that abuts the famed Henry Francis DuPont estate, Winterthur, which is now a 1,000-acre preserve of rolling meadows and woodlands, and a national treasure. This unparalleled home is being offered on the open market for the next discerning owner to steward. Absolute privacy and solitude exist, perched within a bucolic setting offering 360 degree views. But who would want to keep this ideal entertaining home a secret with it's impressive main home, gate house, pool cottage, tennis court, bocce court and bowling alley? Exterior spaces include expansive courtyard, multiple balustrade-framed patios, and intimate loggia, complete with outdoor pizza oven. No expense was spared in creating a masterpiece of grand, yet livable, proportions. You'll feel thousands of miles away in your own castle, yet really just 2 minutes to Centreville, an 18th Century Village listed in the National Register of Historic Places, and 2 minutes in the other direction to upscale shops and boutiques, and dining options range from an espresso cafe and gourmet pizza to upscale dining, a brewpub and tavern in the center of Greenville. All connected by the scenic greenway, Kennett Pike, where cycling is a local pastime. Built to stand the test of time, era and trends, Marimon is the premier estate home in Delaware. Come see why generations have settled and stayed in this idyllic gem of the East Coast.
