Bask in 'Grandeur and Elegance' at This Historic $6M Manse

New, 6 comments


Built with "grandeur and elegance written in exquisite architectural detail and tempered by inviting warmth," this Georgian-inspired brick manor in Greenville, Del. is newly on the market for an extremely grand but not-so-inviting $6M. Built for the high society Du Pont family by architect William Lawrence Bottomley in 1936, the nine-bedroom, 12,500-square-foot Stockton-Montmorency estate still maintains its original arched doorways, Gracie wallpaper, and fancy, raised-panel wainscoting, along with a whole lot of flouncy, old-fashioned decor to set the mood. The 61-acre property also offers a two-bedroom farmhouse, three-bedroom tenant house, and a 24-stall barn where Du Pont descendants still raise pedigreed ponies to this day. Take it all in, below:
