If you’ve ever been intrigued by southern Delaware’s historical roots, this weekend is a wonderful opportunity to learn a bit more about the region’s past, while also touring one of the First State’s last remaining examples of the Regency style of architecture.
Historic Georgetown is the setting for our latest Oldfather Group Open House event, and this one is a tad different than most due to the historical and cultural significance of the property.
Open to the public this Saturday, January 11, from 12 to 2 p.m., this 19th century home is known in local circles as the “Gardiner Wright Mansion” and enjoys a spot on the National Register of Historic Places.
It’s located at 228 South Front Street in Georgetown.
The home and property have had a number of uses over the years, but today it could be a beautiful family residence, a cozy bed and breakfast or even be utilized as professional office space.
Nestled just off The Circle in the center of Sussex County, the home rests on an acre-and-a-half of land and features four bedrooms, four bathrooms, a formal dining room and even a library with built-in shelving.
Other features include eight fireplaces, a guest suite on the upper level, a kitchen with butler’s pantry and much more.
This historic Sussex County home will be open on Saturday, January 11, so don’t miss the opportunity for this glimpse into the region’s past through the eyes of one of its grandest old homes.
