“We fell in love with the Middletown area because it’s so green,” says Tony DeCicci. He built a Delaware County home there for himself and his wife, Maria Bucco in the mid-1990s, writes Paul Jablow for The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Middletown has been a great place to raise their children and accommodate DeCicci’s mother before she died.

“The house has grown with us,” he says.

DeCicci is a realtor; Bucco is a physician. They moved from Wynnewood to the 1.7-acre property before their son and daughter were born.

Now the children are grown, and the second floor is vacant.

 DeCicci and Bucco have decided to move on, building a new home in Cape May.

And so they’ve put their Middletown house up for sale.

The couple said the home’s spacious 2,754-foot layout was particularly appreciated during the pandemic. 

There is one-floor living on the first floor, including the primary suite, sky-lit cathedral ceilings, tile floors, natural-finish woodwork, and flagstone patios.

Three bedrooms are on the second floor. 

There have been updates to the roof, siding, doors, kitchen, bath, second-floor carpet, and HVAC system.

A stream runs on the property, which has a winding driveway and perennial plantings.
