A charming stone house in Delaware with a peaceful countryside setting

Nestled on a picturesque countryside property in Greenville, Delaware, Center Mill House is a stunning stone-clad home designed by Peter Zimmerman Architects. Positioned at the center of the site, the house offers panoramic vistas of the mature landscape, valley stream, and ponds below. This countryside home meets the needs of the homeowners who wished to live less formally upon moving from the city.

The design pays careful attention to creating an intimate and inviting scale. The house utilizes stone that was selected for its unique characteristics, drawing inspiration from the local vernacular of historic farmhouses in the area. Large, windowed rooms are situated around the house to frame both sweeping views of the landscape and more intimate glimpses of the surrounding gardens and greenhouse.

To seamlessly blend with the natural surroundings, a 3-car garage with a studio above is nestled into the hillside, creating a parking court that conceals it from the main entrance, further enhancing the overall aesthetic of the property.

It isn’t just a house, it’s a home. It feels “lived in”.
Nice colors an wallpapers.
In the Netherlands we call this “gezellig”; cosy, warm.

I’ve looked at hundreds of your homes and this has to be the finest interior designing I’ve seen.
