Greenville, commonly thought of as one of the more affluent areas of New Castle County, boasts stately homes, beautiful gardens, interesting museums, and natural landscapes.

The story of Wilmington and the Brandywine Valley is inextricably intertwined with the story of the du Pont family. It’s a story that begins when Pierre Samuel du Pont de Nemours, the son of a Paris watchmaker, left his native country for the United States with his two sons in 1800. Two years later, one of those sons, Éleuthère Irénée du Pont opened a gunpowder mill on the banks of the Brandywine Creek, near Wilmington and the DuPont Company was born. And along with it, a great relationship between the family and the people of Delaware.

Over time, the Du Pont Company diversified and expanded to become one of the leading chemical and health care companies in the world. The du Ponts built great estates throughout the Brandywine Valley, and their familial commitment to conservation and natural beauty ensured the preservation of much of the region. A few of those estates are now world-renowned museums – Winterthur Museum, the Delaware Museum of Natural History, the Andre Harvey Studio at Breck’s Mill, and Hagley Museum. The esteemed Longwood Gardens is only 3.7 miles north of Greenville.

The homes for sale in Greenville range from two-bedroom to four-or-more-bedroom single-family homes, with many built during the 40s, 50s, and 60s. Homes vary from Colonial, Victorian, and Contemporary Styles.
