Glamour, comfort, history in a classic design that stands the test of time, describes both Wawaset Park and this grand home built in 1920. Rarely does a home of this substance become available in this prestigious and historic community. Designed by famed architect Edward L. Palmer, Wawaset Park is one of the most desirable walking communities in Wilmington. As you arrive at 1103 Nottingham Road, you will notice the lush landscaping surrounding the home as you are beckoned by the comfort of the covered front porch framed by the original iron grape vine motif. Enter the spacious foyer with the center winding staircase carrying you to all three levels. Wide openings take you to the formal living or dining rooms where the sun streams through the true divided-light windows. The living room is graced by a wood burning fireplace, behind which is a sunroom with original built-in corner cupboards and a decorative antique copper sink. The sunroom has an exterior entrance to take you to one of the many garden "rooms" on the property. The living room opens to the family room with beautiful paneled doors which could be closed for privacy or stay open for flow. From the family room access an informal breakfast area and step up to the spacious updated kitchen by Giorgi Kitchens, with plentiful custom cabinetry, granite counters, large pantry closet, Subzero refrigerator/freezer, Wolf gas stove top & double ovens, Bosch dishwasher. For convenience, you'll even find a laundry setup around the corner.At the top of the first half landing of the stairs, you will see a large, antique Rococo-style mirror, from the same era as the home, and to the left you'll find a private master suite complete with Giorgi designed custom en-suite bath with oversized steam shower, two sinks, private chamber and heated stone floors! On the main hall of the 2nd floor you will find 3 spacious bedrooms, one currently used as an office, another is a guest suite with a recently updated stylish bathroom. An elegant hall bath was also updated this year with Carrera marble throughout, while keeping the original charm. A cozy reading room at the top of the stairs completes the authenticity of this floor. The staircase continues to the 3rd level where you will find two more bedrooms, one with an extra adjacent space enabling multiple uses from homework to storage. A hall bath with claw foot tub makes this floor a practical, functional space as a private get-a-way for you or guests. The home includes a finished lower level family/play room accented by a decorative stone fireplace. The unfinished area has a walkout door and areas perfect for dry storage, workshop and more. The property includes a detached 2-car garage and an adjoining potting shed which accents one of the many pleasant bonuses of this city home. Thoughtfully planned and invited on the Wilmington Garden Day Tour in 2018 and '19, the garden is as practical as it is pretty. Off the multiple back entrances to the home you will find separate garden rooms for a variety of entertaining purposes. Or for shadier relaxation, sit in the upper tier garden above the beautiful stone retaining wall and watch a rousing game of badminton or soccer practice on the surprisingly large expanse of lawn. Anywhere you sit, you are in your own private oasis, amazing for a city home and in keeping with the original design of Wawaset Park.

The Temperature chart displays average high and low values for January and July, and is designed to provide an indication of both seasonal and daily temperature variability. The Weather Risk Index indicates the calculated risk of each type of weather event occurring in the future. This risk is based on historical localized storm events and weather patterns. The national average for each type of weather event equals a score of 100, so a score of 200 would represent twice the risk as the national average, and a score of 50 would represent half the risk of the national average.
The Community Educational Index chart is based on the U.S. Census Bureau's Socioeconomic Status (SES) elements. Factors used in creating the index below are income, educational achievement, and occupation of persons within the selected ZIP code.
