Single Family Home

Welcome to the Kensey Johns, Jr House. Construction began in 1823 and was completed in 1827. This property now stands as one of Old New Castle's Grandest homes. This gorgeous house has been rejuvenated and transformed by 15 Designers, countless craftsmen and vendors into a spectacular home currently open as the Historic Old New Castle Designer Show House to benefit the Sunday Breakfast Mission. There are 3 floors, 12 foot ceilings, 10 fireplaces, 2 formal parlors, an office/study, a dining room, a huge kitchen with a large eating area, a butler's pantry, a loft, 6 bedrooms and more. Original features include wood floors, woodwork, doors and hardware and reeded columns in the 40' entrance hall. A classic, European style kitchen with stone and granite counters, custom cabinets and subway tile has just been installed. Reclaimed wood from the original structure has been incorporated into the fireplace wall in the eating area. Every room has been transformed by the designers. Of particular note is the painting by Nadia Zychal in the main stairwell and landing areas going from the first floor to the third floor. It is a chinoiserie fantasy inspired by the poem Kubla Kahn by Samuel Taylor Coleridge. Outside is a beautiful, landscaped yard on two levels with a newly improved screened porch with brick floor. Make your appointment today to experience this exceptional home.
