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!
