One of a kind property in Greenville. Nanticoke Farm dates back to 1799 according to the date stone on the barn. The main residence was a four-room, two-story stone home also dating back to approximately 1799. In approximately 1915, the house was greatly expanded to an all stone grand manor home. In the mid 1960's the property was purchased by a duPont family and they had the 8-acre lake built affording magnificent water views and recreational water activities. Two ponds on the property and a connecting stream with waterfall add additional beauty to the landscape. Large forecourt with stone walls and smokehouse creates a gracious entrance. Elegant foyer leads to sunken living room and paneled library. Hidden panels in library reveal powder room & storage closet. Living room features one of 10 fireplaces in the home and doors to patio.
