Property Description 269 E DUTTON MILL ROAD, BROOKHAVEN, PA 19015
Set amidst what is now Media and Brookhaven since 1843, and presently only 0.5 miles from the edge of Media, this fully remodeled (2021) one-of-a-kind Victorian mansion and it’s 1 1/3 acre of land with two driveways, one to Chester Creek Road and one to Dutton Mill Road, **has 4,698 sq ft of living space** with 10’ ceilings, six very large bedrooms, a giant open kitchen (30’ x 20’), three and a half baths, two jetted tubs, one soaker tub, three separate shower units, a wraparound porch, two full sets of staircases, and a double-egressed 1,566 ft.² basement with 12’ ceilings, for a total potential living space of 6,264 sq ft (upon a finished basement).The “Dutton Mansion” as it is referred locally, was the first home built in the area, and it now provides the latest in ultra-low-cost heating and cooling with a state-of-the-art geothermal heating and cooling system (4-climate zoned; forced air), all new low-E double-paned double-hung windows, and pure potable well water. The two recently rebuilt chimneys provide a fireplace for the great room and five additional rooms prepared and easily fitted with wood-burning stoves. This modernized antique home even offers, for example, fully retained and restored original 1800s-era ceiling medallions with smart/Alexa controlled chandelier lights. Built decades before the chestnut tree blight of the 1890s, the home’s “studs” are 4” x 6” chestnut beams, while in 2008, engineers reinforced the home’s foundation with four commercial-grade I-beams. Adjacent to Chester Creek and nestled within the area’s remaining forest patches, this property fortunately rests on a hill above and outside the Creek’s flood zone. Returning to the quiet, calm natural setting of the Chester Creek environment for evening, night, and early morning hours when the dominant sound is often just the flowing water of Chester Creek and when the patient or lucky observer may see deer, raccoons, groundhogs, and foxes, the property again takes on the quickened pace when Dutton Mill Road returns to normal business hours. Located just 15 minutes from PHL, 10 minutes from both the State of Delaware and New Jersey, just 2 min to Chester Creek Trail, and 3 min to Planet Fitness, this suburban property offers excellent urban and general accessibility.
