Schell Locals Night at Sawgrass North

By Adam Pettengell, in Sawgrass North

The Kingfisher at Sawgrass North

Jordan and I love our new Kingfisher model at Sawgrass North.  We really do.  In fact, so much so that we’ve decided to extend our hours and open our model for our new event we’re calling Schell Locals Night!

Our Kingfisher is amazing and with all our interior and exterior lighting, the model experiences another layer of beauty when the sun goes down. Admittedly, no one gets to see our model at night. That’s about to change. We’re excited to show off the model ‘after hours ‘ and host our local community and any visitors that drop in.

We’re BIG advocates of supporting local businesses, so we’re working closely with a number of Rehoboth businesses to put on our Locals Night. At the moment, we have three events booked before the end of the year! Honestly, we could have booked every night this month based on the enthusiasm we’ve had from local businesses.

The events start on Friday, November 21st with Outlet Liquors. From 5pm to 8pm, we will be combining wine tasting with Dave Hill from Outlet Liquors and food from Touch of Italy. Dave is the wine manager for Outlet Liquors, but also just an all around wine god! This guys know his stuff and, unlike me, doesn’t just pick wine off the shelf according to how nice the label looks.

Next we’re super excited to be hosting Jane & Georgie, a ladies’ clothing business on Rehoboth Avenue. On Thursday, December 4th from 6pm until 9pm, Kate will be hosting a trunk show at the model. Just before Christmas so we can all shop ’till we drop. SoDel Concepts will be providing some food for us, and I’ll be serving drinks in my tuxedo. Kate is a Rehoboth fashionista, and I know I’ll be in trouble, or at least my wallet will be, if the wife manages to book a babysitter for that night.

Dave from Outlet Liquors will then be back with us on Friday, December 19th for our second wine tasting event, where we will be toasting the holidays in full cheer.

We’re looking forward to hosting our Locals events and growing this series to incorporate more local businesses in the future. It’s always important to shop local, especially in the off season. Everyone is welcome to join us for these events – the more the merrier. Sawgrass likes to party, so I have no doubt there will be plenty of laughs, stories, and pictures to share. Mark your calendars!

 

Cheers, Adam

Sawgrass North Model Grand Opening

Sawgrass Model Grand Opening

Big things are coming this month at Sawgrass North! New home construction is booming in the community, the brand new clubhouse will start construction in the next few weeks, and the Kingfisher model is now finished and ready for Jordan and me to officially move-in.

Echelon Interiors has worked it’s magic, and the model is looking magnificent. Chris Yurisic, our construction manager at Sawgrass, has outdone himself and built us a palace. Let’s be honest; Jordan and I wouldn’t settle for anything less.

Have you heard the buzz on the Rehoboth streets? Are you updated on what’s planned for the Kingfisher’s Grand Opening? On Saturday, October 18th, Delmarva Broadcasting will be on site right in front of our brand new model. Tune in to 97.7 to hear Jordan and me broadcasting across the air waves.

We’ll have a beautifully decorated model stocked with delicious local food and drink to celebrate throughout the day. Want to put a construction hat on and have a look at some of the models under construction? No problem; we will be giving tours of our homesites along Courtney and Bishop Bend, (Fun fact: these are the homesites that accommodate basements). If all of this excitement isn’t enough for you, we’ll also have some amazing local giveaways to top off the day!

We’re super excited, and we really do hope you can join us as we celebrate the Kingfisher Model Grand Opening at Sawgrass North.

Cheers, Adam

Sawgrass North 1-2-3!

By Adam Pettengell, in Sawgrass North

Sawgrass North

As of Labor Day, we have been selling homes in Sawgrass North for 115 days! The official unveiling of Phase 3 is here, and to date, the community has recorded a total of 24 sales.

That means we’ve added a new set of homeowners every 5 days. All of this amazing progress without even being onsite! Our brand new Kingfisher model is nearing completion, and we couldn’t be more excited about our new home. The release of Phase 3 means that we’re adding wooded homesites, homesites that can accommodate basements, and homesites that are situated close to a pond.

With the continued success at Sawgrass North, our incentives have dropped and will undoubtedly drop further as the community continues to grow; that being said, it’s still a great time to be a pioneer of Sawgrass North, and this is your opportunity to take advantage of this amazing location at an incredible value. Remember, this is Rehoboth real estate, and it is the best piece of dirt and timber in the county.

Jordan and I are ready, are you? If so, contact us, and let’s make it happen.  There is nothing more special than having a 19971 zip code, trust me.

Driving on the Beach [video]

By Adam Pettengell, in All Communities

Drive on Beach

You’re not really a local until you have driven on the beach.

That’s my opinion, anyways. I’m always striving to prove myself as a local, albeit with a twang, coming from across the pond. My first step to living like a local was to get a Jeep, and the day I did, I inherited about 20,000 new friends, who wave to me each day in Sussex County.

Then the next step for the family and me was to drive on the beach.  But before you take your four-wheel drive vehicle on to the beach, you need to have a surf fishing permit. These are very easy to purchase online or at a park office. When you get your surf fishing tag and place it on the front of the car, that identifies you as a local!

“Because driving on the beach can cause serious damage to vegetation and wildlife and contributes to shore erosion, Delaware State Parks limits vehicles on the beach to designated surf fishing areas only, for the sole purpose of actively engaging in fishing. To use these areas, you must have a valid surf fishing vehicle permit and be actively engaged in surf fishing at all times while on the beach. To keep our beaches clean and safe for wildlife and park visitors, other recreational beach driving is not allowed.”

When driving on the beach, there are essential tools and equipment you must have with you: a low pressure tire gauge for when you are releasing or adding air back to your tires, tow rope or chain, a board, a jack and lastly a shovel.

Most importantly you must have the necessary fishing equipment: bait, tackle, and a fishing rod. You must be actively engaged in surf fishing at all times.

With every luxury in life there are rules. Most of the drive-on beach rules are common sense, but for a more in-depth read of surf fishing rules, visit the Delaware State Parks website.

In addition to giving access to designated beach areas, the surf fishing permit also allows free entry into Delaware State Parks during the “in” season.

In addition to what you need to have, pack what you want to have for the day, as well. We load up tables, beach grills, flagpole and flag (so you can be identified), coolers, chairs, towels and corn hole when we head to the beach. When you’ve finally made it to the water, you have to reverse your car so the trunk is facing the ocean. This allows rangers to identify your permit. Once you’re set up and you’ve cast your line into the water, you’re ready for the day.

Life is good being a local. See you at Gordon’s Pond or Herring Point real soon, and look for the British flag.

Cheers, Adam

Rehoboth, Rehoboth, Rehoboth

Rehoboth Beach - Boardwalk

Sawgrass North is already receiving huge interest from locals, Realtors and even surrounding states.  New Schell Brothers communities normally receive a large amount of interest when announced, and Sawgrass North is no different. In fact it’s received, and is projected to have, more interest than any of our communities yet!

So what makes Sawgrass North so special, you might ask?

It’s located in the 19971 Rehoboth zip code!

Can you come to the beach and not have a Grotto pizza or Nicola ziti?

Can you drive down Rehoboth Avenue and not stop at Dogfish Brewpub to eat?

How many times to do the kids or grandkids ask to go to Funland, Jungle Jim’s, or Sea Shell Golf?

Have you ever gone an entire season without Thrashers Fries, Kohr Brothers ice cream, or Dolles candy?

Well, Sawgrass North is the closest Schell Brothers’ community to Rehoboth Beach…only 5 miles away from the promise land! Not only is the location amazing but the community itself is a home-run. A private gated community with low maintenance living and all the best amenities, flanked by two golf courses and water access at the end of Old Landing road. Did I miss anything? Oh yeah, pond views, basements and private tree-lined home sites are also available!

It’s all very new and yet it makes perfect sense. Sawgrass North and Schell Brothers.  It’s a great match.

To register now for the ‘early bird’ deals and to be eligible for BIG pre-construction incentives visit our Sawgrass North website.

I look forward to sharing Thrasher Fries with you and showing you around the community and around Rehoboth.

Cheers, Adam
