What a rare opportunity to own a piece of Delaware history in a place of unequaled beauty! The Abel Jeanes Mansion is located on 2 acres and is listed on the Nat'l Registry of Historic Places in DE. This outstanding estate is nestled among now defunct limestone quarries known as the Eastburn -Jeanes Lime Kiln District. Several accounts state that the home was built in 1768, but it's not clear when Abel Jeanes actually purchased or first occupied the mansion. This home is expansive with its large kitchen, grand living room, formal dining room, library, 5 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths, 9' ceilings, hardwood floors, curved plaster window frames in the original section, 6 fireplaces (one is operable), 2 staircases, & partial basement with outside access. The home's most recent addition appears to have been built in the 1970s--enlarging the kitchen, adding a 2nd floor master suite & sitting room, master bedroom with French doors leading to a deck, upstairs laundry, 4-piece master bath, & walk-in closet. There are 3 addl. bedrooms & a full bath on the 2nd floor--a 5th bedroom, sitting room, & full bath on the 3rd fl. The home has central air, and the boiler was replaced in 2009. All sections of the roof have been replaced within the last 8 yrs, & a new water softener was installed in 2010. The electric was updated to 200 amp service w/circuit breakers, and the home was connected to public sewer service in 2002. New carpets were installed on the 2nd/3rd floors in 2016. The property includes an original wagon shed (now garage & workshop) and a spring house. The garage's roof was replaced in 2008, and a new cedar shake roof was installed on the spring house in 2010. According to Francis Allyn Cooch, in his book, "Newark, Delaware, and It's Environs", (Newark, DE, The Press of Kells, 1936), "The Mansion is of brick and stone, and the wagon-shed of wood has a stone foundation but all of the other buildings on this farm are of native limestone ... " Cooch describes the mansion as, "su
