Live Like the duPonts!

August 6, 2021   |   Newsletter
How would you like to live in a home previously owned by a du Pont?  Yes, I’m speaking of “the  du Ponts!”

This home was recently renovated to its former glory by none other than one of our own custom builders here in Cumberland HarbourTerry Stover Construction.

This home in the historic district of downtown St. Marys was recently listed for sale and is currently under contract.

A Chronology of the owners is as follows:

Original owner:  James Seagrove
1824:  James Vincent
1827:  John Pottle
1857:  Jacque Vocelle
1911:  Lee L.  du Pont (married Addie Register in 1909)
1928:  Mr. & Mrs. L. H. Bryant moved into the du Pont house
1940:  Fred Miller
1975:  Dennis Lovell

It is several blocks from the river and is walkable or a quick golf cart ride to restaurants and shops.
The front door, sidelights and bright natural light coming in make this home warm and inviting.
A beautiful dining room with its own fireplace and stunning period furniture.
This sitting room/office also has plenty of natural lighting and views of the yard beyond.
As you may have seen from other Terry Stover builds, antique doors and hardware, bead board. shiplap and period floors are just stunning and are this builder’s signature style.  He truly restored this home to its former glory.
Master bedroom with modern day conveniences and some hints of yesteryear.
Monochromatic master bath with a beautiful tub.
An open and airy kitchen with plenty of room to gather around the table with family and friends.
Lots of storage space in this kitchen as well as a fun window over the stove lets in even more natural light.
Back entrance with half bath and large hallway.
Spacious guest room.
A second guest room or bedroom for children or adults.
These doors just take our breath away!
A guest bathroom with beautiful tile and spa-like colors.
A back porch comfortable enough to make this additional living space and check out the ceiling!
Always a favorite–this porch swing looks very comfy!
Rocking chairs are a must on a porch!
