Historic Waterfront ID Short House Offered for Sale on Silver Lake in downtown Milford! We are proud to present 208 Lakeview Avenue in Milford for first public sale in one hundred years! Built approximately 150 years ago, this stately home was purchased by local businessman, banker, and Delaware State Senator, Isaac Dolphus Short in 1924. With the help of a Philadelphia architect, Mr. Short extensively renovated the home to its present Georgian Revival style, featuring a large front porch with elegant columns, high ceilings, lake-facing balcony, and intricate trim crafted from local native cypress. The home was purchased by the current owners from the estate of Mr. Short's widow, Elizabeth Taylor Short, and has been carefully and extensively updated, with modern furnace, central air conditioning throughout, and four updated bathrooms. The wide front porch leads to a double foyer and central main hall, featuring leaded glass in doors and transoms, as well as an open staircase to the three living levels. Sliding glass doors lead to a large living room with fireplace. Two sets of glass French doors lead from the living room to the bright south-facing sunroom, featuring Willam Morris - styled frieze and unique soapstone floor. Directly through the center hall is a glorious formal dining room, with vibrant red walls, coffered ceiling, and elegant crystal chandelier. Beyond the dining room is a large butler's pantry with built-in cabinet; and extensively renovated kitchen, featuring eat-in bay window, gas log fireplace, and custom cherry and painted cabinetry that blends with original mill work. A back staircase leads to the rear of the second floor. The downstairs also features a comfortable lakefront den with adjacent newly renovated full bath. There are six bedrooms on the second and third floors. The large master bedroom features high ceilings, lake view, windows on three sides, balcony, and adjoining dressing room and bath. Two additional bedrooms, two additional full baths, and laundry room complete the second floor. The third floor features two additional large bedrooms (one with lake view) plus a trunk room and two attics. The property faces Silver Lake, and lake frontage conveys with the property, allowing direct access for boating and fishing. There are beautiful established gardens surrounding the home, and the rear of the home features a large patio and large circular drive. A large detached garage has potential for many possible uses. This one-of-a-kind home is move-in ready and awaits a discriminating buyer who appreciates historic craftsmanship not found in modern homes. A MUST SEE! Check out: www.downtownmilford.org
