Get to Know…The Estates at Reddenwood

By Nicole Irvin, in All Communities

The Estates at Reddenwood is Schell Brothers’ newest community located in Milton, Delaware. I sat down with my fellow Schell employee who lives in this already-established community to get all of the details on life in Reddenwood.

After growing up in a small town, he loves quaint and friendly Milton and has truly enjoyed living there for the past three years. Read on to hear more about this picturesque and secluded community that is just a short drive away from local towns of Lewes, Rehoboth, Georgetown and Milford!

What makes The Estates at Reddenwood a unique community? There are wooded lots that are 3/4 acres, which makes these homesites the largest that Schell Brothers offers in Delaware. This allows each home to have a private feel while still being part of a close-knit community.  

For someone who has never visited Milton before, how would you describe the area? There’s a definite small-town feel to Milton, but still so much to see and do there if we don’t want to drive into Lewes or Rehoboth in summer traffic. It’s home to Dogfish Head brewery and tasting room, which is only 3 minutes from my house! There are several shops and great restaurants right in downtown Milton, and my wife loves coffee from the little coffee shop there. There’s also Milton Memorial Park downtown, and we can drop our kayaks in the water at the dock there to head down the Broadkill River.  

How about things to do nearby? Where are your favorite places to:

Dine? Po’ Boys Creole Restaurant, The Backyard, and Irish Eyes (which we especially love for a cold beer and outdoor dining)

Spend time outdoors? We love to kayak on the Broadkill, and go to parades and events in downtown Milton as well as the farmers’ market.  

Describe The Estates at Reddenwood in 3 words: Stress-free, quiet, secluded  

If you could pick a favorite floor plan, which would it be and why? The Cassidy, because it offers one-floor open living with an optional basement.  

Let’s talk industry trends – what are people looking for in a new home right now? Open living spaces, which Schell definitely offers in their floor plans, and outdoor living. Reddenwood in particular is ideal for outdoor living, and an expansive courtyard could easily be added on the large lots here.  

In your opinion, what sets a Schell home apart from other builders? The energy efficiency of their homes. My utility bills are drastically cheaper since moving into my Schell home. In addition, they are well-insulated and well-built all around.  

Final thoughts? We really enjoy the quietness and privacy of our home in Reddenwood, while still being able to easily get to all the fun that Lewes and Rehoboth offer!
