We head north on Route 1 for our latest Oldfather Group "Home of the Week," this time featuring a property located within a short drive of both the Delaware beaches and the state capital region in Dover.

Nestled on a large lot in one of the area's quietest planned communities, this home boasts more than 1,500-square-feet of customized living space and a good amount of outdoor entertaining options.

We'll tell you more in just a moment, but first we'd like to remind you that southern Delaware's fall festival season is now in full swing, with tons of great outdoor activities planned over the next couple of months in and near the coastal region.

Learn the what, the where, the how much and everything else you'll need to make the most of the next couple of months at the Delaware beaches, by reading our "Weekender Blog" every Wednesday.

This coming weekend, for example, features Ocean City's Sunfest celebration, the 2018 Ladybug Music Festival and many more great events. So be sure to check back here on www.oldfatherrealestate.com later this week for much more about these fantastic fall events.

Okay, now back to this week's featured property, located at 87 Pine Forest Trail in Magnolia. Here's the Oldfather Group's Jeff Hecker with a 30-second video preview.

Before we jump into the expanded narrative of this featured home in Magnolia, let's show you a couple exterior photos of 87 Pine Forest Trail.

Then keep reading for much more on this inviting southern Delaware property.

This inviting home in Magnolia’s Misty Pines community is conveniently located just a short drive away from not only the beach communities along the Delaware Bay, but also from all of the amenities that the First State’s capital region has to offer.

Resting on three-quarters of an acre in one of the area’s finest residential communities, this three bedroom, two bathroom home is perfect for someone who wants to be close to the city, but who also craves the peace and quiet that comes from living in a small subdivision.

Features of this 1,500-square-foot home include a beautiful tiled entryway, laminate flooring, an open kitchen and a light and airy dining area.

There’s also a centrally located living area and an owner’s suite that’s spacious and comfortable and provides a perfect spot for relaxing and enjoying the peacefulness of your surroundings.

The home also features a couple of outdoor living options, with both the front porch and the back deck providing the perfect spots for enjoying a cold beverage on a hot summer night, or entertaining family and friends during the region’s warm weather season.

Other features of this inviting home include a two-car garage with side entry, a large driveway, outdoor landscaping and an outbuilding in the back yard for storing garden equipment, or just for extra storage space if desired.
