Greenlawn, also known as the Outten Davis House and William Brady House, was a historic home located at Middletown, New Castle County, Delaware. It was built about 1810, and radically altered about 1860. It was a two-story, five bay, brick dwelling with cross-gable roof with dormers. It had a rear brick ell with attached wing. It featured a three-bay front porch, large brackets, a widow's walk on the roof, and ornate chimney caps. It was originally built in the Late Georgian style, then modified with Late Victorian details.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973[1] and demolished in about 1985.
