Meet Your Neighbors: Wendy & Jim

By Adam Pettengell, in Uncategorized

As you’ve probably heard by now, Governors isn’t just popular with out-of-town buyers looking to join the good life here in Coastal Delaware; in fact, many of our buyers are locals, like Jim and Wendy! Learn a little bit more about this awesome couple and why they chose Governors:

Tell us a bit about yourselves and your current situation?

We currently live around the corner from Governors in Wolf Pointe and are trying to sell that home because of downsizing. Wendy is retired from 33 years of teaching and Jim is still teaching Strength and Conditioning at a local high school and coaching football (3 years to go till retirement).

How did you hear/know about Lewes and the beach?

We have been here in Lewes for 17 years and can’t think of wanting to live anywhere else – we love this little town!

Why did you pick Governors as your new home community?

For several years we have been watching the farm field (Governors) hoping that a new development would eventually be built that would meet our retirement needs. YEA Schell Brothers made it happen! We were one of the first couples to buy and we are building the Orchid model.

Why did you pick your floor plan at Governors?

The Orchid will allow us to never have to move again, it is small but appears spacious with its open floor plan and it still gives us room to have family and friends visit us. We did add a second floor room “man cave” and  two storage rooms upstairs along with a screened in porch.

What do you look forward to the most once you live in your new home in Governors?

We met our three surrounding neighbors at the first “get-together” and have already found similar interests and backgrounds with them. This is going to be a “fun” place to live, and we believe it will be like retiring to a resort community. Schell Brothers always builds communities where people have the opportunity to gather in clubhouses, make friends, and feel a sense of belonging – this is what we are looking for with this new move. 

Peddling the Five-Eight (and Beyond!)

By Adam Pettengell, in Uncategorized

 

First up is your cycle from Governors to…the beach of course!

Okay but first, beach essentials. Pack a few of the must-have items like a towel, sunscreen, some water… that’s all you need right?  Ok maybe some money for ice cream;)  If you fancy a chair, grab a beach chair with straps so you can put it on your back and you’re ready to go! Obviously, beer is optional in this whole equation, but lucky for me I found my browler from Revelation is handy as it is placed where my water bottle usually goes.  Oh yes browlers are a thing here at the beach.  We will talk more about this another time…

Okay so here is the scenario. You wake up in your new home at Governors.  You go to your professional kitchen in your Orchid floor plan and get a coffee.  You gaze out of all the windows at the back of the home and realize that today is just too good to be wasted inside! You gather the above items and jump on your bicycle.  You peddle to the front of Governors and join the Junction & Breakwater Trail which is parallel to Gills Neck Road.  Yep it’s just steps from your door step! You’ll peddle past Senators (another Schell Brothers and Jack Lingo community) and then Hawkseye.  You’ll crossover at the crossing, funnily enough, and join back on the trail which goes along the side of Breakwater (yep, another fabulous Schell Brothers community).  Then you’ll become parallel with Kings Highway and go past our amazing new Lewes Library where you’ll take the trail by the side of the bridge and come out under the bridge on Gills Neck Road.  From there you are on road but don’t worry this is Lewes not Route 1;). Take Gills Neck to the Dogfish Inn and then turn right to go over the canal bridge. From there it’s a straight road to Lewes Beach!  You’ll go past the Wheelhouse, Pig and Publican, Harvest Tide Steakhouse and then past Dairy Queen (good thing you packed that ice cream money, right??).  That’s it! Just a 5k bike ride from Governors to Lewes Beach using primarily trails!

So now you’ve arrived at the amazing Lewes Beach; you know, the place with the best sunrises and sunsets that you’ve seen me posting about? Not to mention my personal favorite views of our amazing lighthouses. A lighthouse a day makes everything okay, right?? That’s how easy it is to access beach life at Governors and we’ve only talked about one of the many beaches you could access!  Oh yes there are more, but let’s save that for another blog.

To recap: you threw together a few items, jumped on your bike, and arrived at the beach in next to no time – with no traffic! No car parking and meter payment required and no time wasted.  Just plenty of time to enjoy the finer things in life like beer, ice cream, and beer.

Meet Your Neighbors: Brad & Kristi

By Adam Pettengell, in Uncategorized

Let’s kick start the week with another introduction to our awesome group of (ever-growing) neighbors here at Governors!

Tell us a bit about yourselves and your current situation?

We are the Sutliffes – our goal is to NOT be the loudest family in the neighborhood, but we have a feeling we may be in the running for this.  Our family consists of Brad and Kristi, three children – Nate (8), Emme (5) and William (2).  We also have a cat, Milo and a fish, Taco that round out the family.  Brad currently works as an employee benefits consultant at Arthur J. Gallagher while Kristi is a stay at home mom. 

We moved to the Lewes area in the fall of 2017 from Salisbury MD – we are wondering why we didn’t make the move years ago as we simply love the area!

How did you hear/know about Lewes and the beach?

We have been coming to the Lewes area for the past 10 years.  With family in the area we have vacationed in Lewes throughout the year and fell in love with the town immediately.  We absolutely knew that we would end up living in the area, but assumed this would be for retirement….once you realize how great the schools are and how much the area has to offer it was a no brainer to “move up” our retirement and raise our family in the community.

Why did you pick Governors as your new home community?

Timing could not have been more perfect on our end for Governors – we had been evaluating the market throughout the past year.  When the opportunity came to be apart of the Governors Family, it was a no brainer.  Our three main goals were to be in the Shields School District, East of Route 1, and stay within a budget (please send a follow up note on this point when we schedule our selection meeting!!!!)

Why did you pick your floor plan at Governors?

Now this is funny……do we want the Bluebell????  How about the Jasmine??……No, maybe the Lilac…..one of these days we will actually make our final selection.  Feel free to place your bets!!!  One thing that we do know, whatever house we select, we know we are going to get an amazing house via Schell.

What do you look forward to the most once you live in your new home in Governors?

Has to be the location – so close to everything – schools, downtown, library, and beach.  We are excited to find our “forever home” and continue our growth as a family.  We look forward to meeting our neighbors and really putting the UNITY in COMMUNITY.  Most importantly our number #1 goal was to live as close to Adam as we possibly could!!!!

Peddling the Five-Eight (and Beyond!)

By Adam Pettengell, in Uncategorized

I’ve been using the title of this exciting new blog series as a hashtag on my Facebook page but I’m not sure everybody understands it! Ha. When I was given Governors as Schell Brother’s brand new community East of Route 1 on Gills Neck Road, the first thing that came into my mind was cycling.  That’s why we have four beach cruisers at the community sales center right now, which might I say have some amazing blue wheels! And guess what, I want you to come to Governors and jump on a bike and peddle the ’58!

The lifestyle on Gills Neck Road affords you the ability to cycle to the beach, which let me tell you, once you’ve done it you’ll be absolutely hooked. And it’s not just biking to the beach either; you can cycle to the beach, downtown Lewes, Cape Henlopen State Park (CHSP), Cape-May Ferry, even to Rehoboth with minimal road time! How? Gills Neck Road gives us access to the Junction and Breakwater Trail which allows us to enjoy life without having to get on Seashore Highway (Route 1) every day. Talk about the good life!

So back to the title of the series…

Peddling is all about cycling/biking and the five-eight is referencing the zip code of Lewes – 19958.  The five-eight is the place to be! We can cycle to Lewes and Rehoboth, PLUS soon enough with the new Lewes to Georgetown Trail we’ll ‘go beyond’ the five-eight by trail with minimal road use. Pretty awesome right??

This is the introduction to my NEW and exciting blog series where we will peddle from Governors to a different location each time and show you why this location is so worth it.  We will plot the distance of the ride and show you how everything is so very accessible at Governors.

So are you ready to go peddle the ’58?!

Everything is there for you, no excuses, it’s time to live the lifestyle you deserve…the Lewes life!

Meet Your Neighbors: Diane & Tony

By Adam Pettengell, in Uncategorized

Next up in our growing Governors’ roster are the Turners! Meet this awesome duo and join us in welcoming them to the Governors/Schell Brothers family:

Tell us a bit about yourselves and your current situation?

We are Diane and Tony Turner, coming down from Lynbrook, NY, a village in the western part of Long Island.  We met while students at Fordham University in the Bronx, and we’ll be married 35 years this September.  Diane is retired from a career of accounting / CFO and then teaching college business courses at the high school level; Tony is retired after 33 years at Allstate Insurance Company.  We have three wonderful children, all out of the house now and successful in their own fields.  We are also still blessed to have two of our aging parents nearby us in Long Island (Tony’s mom and Diane’s dad).  We are avid Disney, Mets, & Jets fans, we love to travel and camp (we have an Rpod lightweight trailer), and we love to bike, hike, and kayak.

How did you hear/know about Lewes and the beach?

With an empty nest now, and the high real estate taxes in Long Island, we have been thinking for awhile that we need to “scale-down” and move off the island.  We definitely have no interest to move north and into colder territory, and we love the beach.  We also do not want to live too far from any of our children (currently located in Maryland and New York City).  Delaware seemed like a perfect fit for us.  We made several trips down to the Lewes/Rehoboth Beach area before finally finding “our home.”

Why did you pick Governors as your new home community?

First, we have been very impressed with the quality and efficiency of the homes in the other Schell developments in the area (not to mention all the salespeople!).  When we heard about Governors opening up, we were thrilled.  The proximity to the beach, the trail, the park, the breweries, the town, etc.; the timing of construction; the models available; the community center and pool (with a swim-up bar!); the ability to get in from the beginning; … what was there not to love?!?

Why did you pick your floor plan at Governors?

We chose the Orchid model because we love the open feel along with one-floor living.  We are scaling down a little from our current situation (losing a basement and formal dining room), which is good for us because we want/need to de-clutter!!!  Adding the loft gives us space for all our kids to stay if they are all visiting at the same time, and the unfinished storage will help for those things we just can’t get rid of yet!!!

What do you look forward to the most once you live in your new home in Governors?

What is there not to look forward to?!?  First, we met almost all our immediate neighbors at the Launch/Celebration party, and they are all wonderful people.  We can’t wait to develop friendships with them and all our other neighbors.  We are also thrilled to be able to walk or bike on the nearby trail, whether heading into Lewes, Cape Henlopen State Park, or Rehoboth Beach, to walk to the nearby breweries (and stumble home??), to check out all the local stores and restaurants, to relax on the beach, and to kayak on the canal, in the bay, or wherever else we can launch our kayak.  With our parents’ situations, we’re not sure how immediate we will make Governors our permanent home, but we are so excited to be making the move!

Know Your (Governors) Road

By Adam Pettengell, in Uncategorized

How important is you road name? I’ll be honest I’ve seen a few road names in my time and I’ve heard a few stories about people’s previous road names (good and bad…and sometimes a little odd). Would a road name stop you buying a home though? Not at Governors! The roads at Governors are a bit special as they are named after our previous Governors of Delaware!

History lives in your road name at Governors and I think that’s a bit special, right? Not only can you tell people you live East of Route 1 and on Gills Neck Road, but you can also go on to say what your Governor did for the new state you are going to live in.  Pretty cool right?  Let’s check out the roads that are open in our initial town home and single family phases.

 

 

Causey Road is named after the one and only Governor Peter Foster Causey and will be home to the initial townhome phase at Governors.  Let’s take a look at Peter and see what we can learn:

Mr. Causey was elected Governor in 1855 and served four years in office. A member of the Whig party, during his tenure he dealt with the passage of an act that eliminated life tenure in office.  He left office on January 18, 1859, and later served as president of the Junction and Breakwater Railroad. Governor Peter F. Causey died on February 15, 1871, and is buried at the Old Methodist Episcopal Cemetery in Milford, Delaware. He seems like a good chap.  Married with six kiddos (wowzer that’s a lot!). Causey is also very interesting as there is a Causey Mansion in Milford which is now a bed & breakfast. Stop by for a visit sometime;)

The most well-known historic home in Milford, Delaware also just so happens to be the Causey Mansion, which sits on a triangle of land at the intersection of South Walnut Street, Causey Avenue (formally known as Depot Street) and South East 2nd Street. The mansion’s yellow brick exterior has been a Milford landmark for centuries, ever since 1855, when Governor Peter F. Causey remodeled the home to how it looks today. The home is in the Greek Revival style with French accents, such as window caps and detailed grill-work in the small third-story windows.  Before being owned by Governor Causey, the mansion was home to another Delaware Governor, Daniel Rogers, who was originally from Virginia. One unique aspect of the Causey Mansion is a well-preserved slave quarters.  The outbuilding served as shelter for the house servants, with one lower room with a brick floor and a large fireplace. 

Next up, Halset Road! Haslet Road is named after Governor Joseph Haslet and is home to the first phase of single-family home sites in Governors.  Fun fact: it was SOLD OUT even before the Grand Opening of the community!  Pretty amazing right? Let’s take a look at Joe:

Governor Haslet was the first person to serve a second non-consecutive term as governor of Delaware. He was born in Kent County, near Milford, Delaware, in 1769. After his parent’s deaths, Haslet was left under the guardianship of Chief Justice William Killen. He received a private education, and at the age of 21 he moved to Cedar Creek Hundred in Sussex County, where he engaged in farming. On October 2, 1810, he was victorious and became Delaware’s Governor. During his tenure, the Farmers’ Bank of the State of Delaware was founded, the state militia was restructured, and a number of war resolutions were passed by the legislature. Haslet did not seek reelection due to the 1792 Delaware Constitution, which banned a governor from succeeding himself. He left office on January 18, 1814, and returned to his farming interests. On October 1, 1822, Haslet won reelection to the governor’s office, and on January 21, 1823, he was sworn into office again. During this term, Haslet granted several pardons and made numerous key commission appointments. Governor Joseph Haslet passed away while still in office, on June 20, 1823. He is buried at the Odd Fellows Cemetery in Milford, Delaware. Governor Halset was a Democratic-Republican and was married with one kiddo. Interesting fact about Governor Haslet was that he was the only person to date to run for Governor 4 times (being successful twice)!

Now you know the roads you are going to live on.  Pretty neat right? Lewes is full of history that you are going to love, and so will Governors.  Even better, you can cycle to all of these historical places in Lewes!  Stay tuned as we release where our next phases will be and the history behind those road names as well!

Meet Your Neighbors: Janice & Troy

By Adam Pettengell, in Uncategorized

We’re back! And we’re kicking off the week with another glimpse at the backbone of this community – our homeowners! This time we’ve caught up with Janice and Troy, who will be building a lovely Jasmine here at Governors. Welcome Janice and Troy!

Tell us a bit about yourselves and your current situation?

We have 3 children (2 boys and a girl) and 3 grandchildren (2 girls and a boy). We have an 11-year-old Morkie(Maltese/Yorkie) named Buddy.  We live in York Pennsylvania and it takes us about 3 hours and 15 minutes to drive to the community.

Troy is a manufacturing business owner and Janice is an Operating Room nurse.  We just celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary!

 How did you hear/know about Lewes and the beach?

 We have been visiting the Rehoboth and Lewes area for decades staying in a local campground or renting a house.

 Why did you pick Governors as your new home community?

 We like the idea of a community where we could meet new people. The location of Governors is great with the bike trails and close proximity to the beach.  The fact that it is closer to home compared to other places is definitely a plus.  Troy first saw it on Facebook!

 Why did you pick your floor plan this floor plan?

 This floor plan will accommodate our family when they visit. We also liked the main living area design.

What do you look forward to the most once you live in your new home in Governors?

 We are looking forward to exploring Lewes and all of the things it has to offer.  We can’t wait to get together with our new neighbors.  It was nice being able to meet so many of them in June.  Unfortunately we can’t live there full time until we retire.

Meet Your Neighbors: Alli & Mike

By Adam Pettengell, in Uncategorized

We’re back for round 2! Mike and Alli League are in the hot seat and they’re answering all of our questions so that you can get to know them. After all, they could be your future neighbors at Governors!

Tell us a bit about yourselves and your current situation?

 Mike & Alli League, the cute Orchid on Lot #199.  It’s just us and our fun-loving pup, Mac. Alli is a veterinary technician at Savannah Animal Hospital and Mike is an instructional technology coach for the Indian River School District.    

How did you hear/know about Lewes and the beach?

Our love affair with Lewes began in the summer of 2001, the same summer we started dating.  Mike got an internship at the College of Marine Studies and spent 10 glorious weeks doing “research” at the beach, while staying in the UD dorm in Cape Henlopen State Park.  Alli got a summer job at the University of Delaware in Newark, and would spend weekends down in Lewes. Between the wonderful coastal lifestyle, the amazing landscape, and the incredibly nice people we were hooked.  In 2003, we made Southern Delaware our home, even getting married on Lewes Beach! The last 17 years have been about finding reasons to stay close to Lewes.

Why did you pick Governors as your new home community?

Governors checks so many boxes for us: close to the beach, the bike path, and Second Street.  When we thought carefully about our lifestyle and where we were spending our free time, it seemed the perfect fit.  We were also looking for a quality, efficient house, so we studied a lot of local builders carefully. (Alli has dragged Mike into more than his fair share of “under construction” homes.)  Alli’s parents built with Schell Brothers and we’ve watched them really enjoy their community (Independence). The low-maintenance lifestyle with great neighbors sealed the deal.

Why did you pick your floor plan at Governors?

We previously had the big house with the big lawn and all the maintenance that comes with it.  In Governors, we were looking for something a little smaller, with the space in the right places.  The Orchid is perfect for us with its awesome kitchen, master suite, and two-car garage. We don’t need a lot of extra bedrooms as both sets of our parents have followed us to Sussex County and retired in the area, so we’re converting one to a study.  Adding the screened porch and some extra room in the garage makes it just perfect for us.

What do you look forward to the most once you live in your new home in Governors?

There are too many things to name here.  Walk to the Farmers’ Market or take Mac for a walk and grab coffee downtown? Should we hit the bike path for a ride or head down to Cape Henlopen? Maybe we’ll read a book at the pool or spend a lazy afternoon on the screened porch.  Dinner out or share a meal (and a few beers) with some neighbors? Every day is a new adventure, and that’s what we’re looking forward to the most in Governors.

 

Stay tuned for more friendly faces in our next post in the series!

Won’t You Be My Neighbor?

By Adam Pettengell, in Uncategorized

It is fundamentally important to Natalie and I that we build Governors from the inside out.  The success of the community doesn’t start or end with the Jeeps in the car park or the amazing trailer we’ve set up shop in at the entrance (although we have a lot of fun entertaining you all in both).  Nope, the success hinges entirely on the people in the community. 

Governors started with a serious bang, but what became immediately apparent at our Grand Opening Celebration was that we had an amazing group of homeowners amongst us. It’s this same group that will serve as the backbone of Governors – the true heart of the community. This first event provided our shiny new homeowners with the chance to mix and mingle. Not only that, these fine folks started to form friendships that will surely last a lifetime. And at that moment, the community was born! 

Governors is already making the headlines, BUT thats not all that’s attention-worthy. We want to highlight some of the stories of the initial bunch of homeowners whom have completed our extreme vetting process;) It’s not for the faint of heart, but the tried and true made it through and we couldn’t be happier about the community that’s forming here at Governor’s. It’s truly something special!

And without further ado…we introduce you our newest blog series, “Meet Your Future Neighbors.” First up, Dave and Suzanne!

Tell us a bit about yourselves and your current situation?  

We live in North Wilmington & have 3 children & currently 3 grandchildren 😉. Right now we have a townhouse in Heritage Village, but our goal was to be on the “other” side of Route 1 in a beautiful community.

 How did you hear/know about Lewes and the beach?

We have been coming to the Delaware beaches for many years & when we were able to purchase a 2nd home we knew it had to be in Lewes!

Why did you pick Governors as your new home community?

Occasionally we would visit different Schell communities & loved both the homes & finishes. We had heard about Governors 3 years ago & were just waiting for it to be started.

Why did you pick your floor plan at Governors?

The moment we walked into a Jasmine we knew it was the one for us. We loved the floor plan, the openness of the first floor, and how it would allow us a great entertaining flow.

What do you look forward to the most once you live in your new home in Governors?  

Being part of a wonderful community; the ability to walk/ride bikes into town if need be.

Sounds great guys.  Thank you for contributing to the community. We’re lucky to have you as part of the community.  Let the good times roll!

Resort Life is Now a Reality at Coastal Club!

By Adam Pettengell, in Coastal Club

Coastal Club

Coastal Club has been open for sales since February 2015, and what a whirlwind it’s been since the launch date! The community started as all communities do, with a grand plan and a vision for a beautiful community that would one day come to fruition.

For Coastal Club, the plan hinged largely on the vision for resort living in Lewes, Delaware, something which incidentally hadn’t been done before in an area this close to the much sought after Lewes zip code.  To be 5 miles from downtown Lewes and have the luxury of an amenity-rich community is a pretty awesome combination… and our homeowners soon agreed. As of today Schell Brothers at Coastal Club has SOLD 175 homes!

I know you’re thinking how fast our sister community Senators sold out, but believe it or not, Coastal Club is breaking all the records.  To boot, we now have our clubhouse open, along with our outdoor pools, our amazing swim-up bar, and party deck!

I documented the build like I do with our homes at Coastal Club and put together a few videos.  I hope you agree that something this amazing needs to be shown off.  It started as a plan but now, it’s a reality. Take a look at the progress!

For a short video of the Swimming pool progress: click here. And for the clubhouse progress: click here

With activities and classes now popping up, The Lighthouse Club is evolving into the social scene it was built for.  Having Big Fish Grill handling the food and drink makes it pretty neat to drop in there as well;) The steel drum playing every Saturday 2-4pm, well, that’s just the icing on the cake.  As we say at the Club, every day is a vacation!

I think the big thing I’ve noticed compared to other communities I’ve worked in is that the Lighthouse Club is well used. The gym is active, already the tennis and pickleball courts are bustling, and I saw some solid bocce ball action this last weekend. It’s active here folks and that’s what people want when they move down to the beach. The party deck is always busy, it’s a little sun trap up there (a rather dangerous trap in fact, as the drinks can fly back very quickly). And again having Big Fish cook the food for the swim-up bar means that people don’t have to go far as the food on-site is simply amazing.

Come on down and I’ll show you for real.  The videos are great but there is nothing like the real thing!

Resort living….vacation life…. every day.

Interested in paying us a visit? Stop by! We’re here 7-days a week.

 

The Power of Natural Gas!

By Adam Pettengell, in All Communities

People ask me all the time about the power of natural gas, so what better time than now to bring you all up to speed on this incredible heat source available in our community here at Coastal Club. Natural gas is an accessory that is relatively new in the beach area.  In fact, depending on your location, most new communities are connecting with this power source, and truth be told, the difference between propane and natural gas is a game changer for new home homeowners.

I’ll speak from experience first. My family and I went from a twin home of around 2700 sq. ft. to a single-family floor plan touching 4000 sq. ft.  The twin home had propane, and the single-family home carries natural gas.  My bills (remember now that I have two kids, a wife and a dog in that order) actually went down in the bigger floor plan! No, we didn’t change our lifestyle, the kids still have to shower 5 times a day it seems and the Mrs. always keeps the heat up throughout the day, much to my chagrin. I’m saving anywhere from $50-150 per month and I’m in a bigger home.  I still pinch myself.

At Coastal Club, I talk to a lot of people from out of state, and usually with older homes, and they’re staggered by the numbers I give them for my gas and electric bills. I even documented my first year’s natural gas bills to help you understand what your costs are going to be in your new Schell home:

January ’16 $146.92
February $148.04
March $120.75
April $94.32
May $73.82
June $47.66
July $46.34
August $48.28
September $47.00
October $55.32
November $106.98
December $141.54
 Monthly Average $89.7475

Remember most home owners aren’t building 4,000 sq. ft. houses and are averaging around the 2600-3000 sq. ft.,  SO that would mean that all things being equal, your natural gas will be even lower.  With the Schellter Technology and Advanced Building Science used to build each home, you can rest assured you’re going to have more money in your pocket.

What will you spend that extra money on? More trips to Agave? More ice cream at Hopkins Creamery? Travel more?

When you add to the fact we were lucky enough to have solar panels with Clean Energy USA added to our home, and as a result, paid under $400 in total for electric in 2016,  I’m a happy chap.  The great thing is you can achieve both these feats with a Schell Brothers home.  The knowledge of monthly utility bills averaging around $125 a month just gives me huge peace of mind.  How much is peace of mind worth to you?

The Power of Nantucket! Now Selling in Coastal Club.

By Adam Pettengell, in Coastal Club

No not Nantucket, New England, we’re talking about Nantucket, the neighborhood, that recently opened here at Coastal Club! Nantucket is our fourth neighborhood to open at Coastal Club, after successfully selling Provincetown, North Tisbury and Oak Bluffs..and that’s with Coastal Club only launching sales in February of 2015!

So, what’s so new about Nantucket?? Well…everything!

For starters, this new phase is like no other phase in Coastal Club.  Its entrance is tucked away off of the natural walking trail and will include a bridge entrance over the wetlands.  This section is teeming with mature trees, both on the perimeter of the phase and internally as well, providing the perfect amount of privacy. Nantucket will also contain amazing ponds, with some water views of Gosslee Mill Pond, our natural water source at the back of the community.

So you have to cross the pond, see what I did there, to get to the new phase;) In fact, from the ring road that goes around Coastal Club, you can’t even see it.  It’s super exclusive, super private, and super quiet, BUT you still have direct and easy access to the trail and the amenities.

That’s all well and good, but there’s still more!  There are basement homesites in the phase (and obviously natural gas heat source) which means you’ll have trees, ponds, water views AND those coveted basements that so many of you have been asking about. All that has meant that the neighborhood, even in its infancy, opened in June 2017 with a staggering 20 contracts.

Currently there are no roads, as we are in the early phases of site work, but you can access the neighborhood by going off-road in my Jeep! Are you ready to jump in and see what I’m talking about?

With first deliveries slated for summer/fall 2018, homeowners can lock in today’s prices while maintaining the security of knowing they’re a year out until the home is theirs, giving them plenty of time to sell their homes and prepare for the move. That means you’ll have ample time to get everything squared away for this exciting chapter of your life!

Are you ready to join the Club? Contact me today, or pop over to our model home at 31611 Exeter Way
Lewes, DE 19958, for a visit and a tour of the community. I’ll have the Jeep ready and waiting for you!
