1790 Federal – Smyrna, DE – $270,000

204 W Mount Vernon St, Smyrna, DE 19977 - Sold*

This Historic appeal of the Pope-Mustard Mansion dates back to 1768 when the original structure was sold by William Penn to his nephew, William Green. Samuel Ball built the original structure on one thousand acres. It was two stories tall, with an A shaped roof & featured Flemish-bond brick wide, square chimney tops. The home was later sold to a noted Revolutionary War soldier, Col. Charles Pope in 1837 who added the 3rd floor. Tradition holds that the home housed Revolutionary War soldiers, and that after Col. John Mustard bought it in 1837, it was a stop on the Underground Railroad. Col. Mustard transformed the home to a Federal style mansion with a classic Greek entrance. This imposing home takes up the corner of Union and Mt. Vernon St. Traditional appointments throughout includes the rich luster of wood flooring, a front and a back staircase, built-ins throughout, beautiful molding accents, kitchen & living room fireplace, 12 ft. ceilings on the 1st floor and 10' ft. ceilings on the 2nd floor. The 2nd floor includes 4 BR and 2 baths, a turned staircase to the 3rd level reveals two rooms, and a full bath. The lovely grounds include a bricked courtyard with a wrap around porch to enjoy the private rear yard. The old smoke & dairy house is now used for storage.

This one of a kind Historic Home was built by Governor Biggs (Delaware's Governor as well as House Rep from 1869-1873) in 1877 and was spared no expense. Truly built to stand the test of time, this home was constructed with heartwood, not sapwood like today's homes. In addition, this mansion was designed and built as a status symbol, with 12 ft 1st floor ceilings, 10 ft on the second and 9ft on the third, 3 staircases and over 6000sqft; these features still rival any modern home today. The craftsmanship is truly one of a kind find with original antiques valued at over $20k throughout the home, it feels as if you stepped back in time the second you pass the threshold. The owners have spent years updating (Geo-thermal) while keeping alive the historical aspect. Truly a breathtaking must see mansion.
