History exudes from every corner of this stately manor built by a relative of Orson Welles, with the halls walked by a cousin to George Washington. Built in 1841, this incredibly rare find has had many names throughout its history -- The Clayton Farm, The Gardiner Wright Mansion, The Marsh House. The last existing home in the state built in the Regency-style, with Second Empire and Italianate -style elements. Extensively renovated in 1946 by Judge James Tunnell (Justice to Delaware Supreme Court). Situated on 1.5 acres near the heart of town, this home could be an amazing bed and breakfast, prestigious law office, or stately residence -- waiting for your imagination. Eight fireplaces, a cozy four-season room, formal living room & dining room, library, beautiful yard with gazebo & patio, and in-law suite over garage.
