For a change of pace, here is a row house in the Compton Village neighborhood of Wilmington, Delaware. Compton Village (pop. 1,025) offers residents a dense urban feel with lots of bars, restaurants, coffee shops, and parks.
My daughter lived in Wilmington for a while when she was going to school there for her master’s. We would visit and take walks in the park around Brandywine Zoo. Like this old house, Wilmington has plenty of great architecture. The city also has lots of green areas.
Three things to consider:
1. On the plus side, the house is located in the Downtown Development District which is eligible for a variety of incentives from the State and City of Wilmington.
2. On-street parking is a problem, especially when it snows.
3.The crime rate is high. My daughter’s car was broken into a couple of times.
