Upon completion, this community will have 1,300 homes. Each homesite averages ¼ of an acre and ranges from 7,500 sq. ft. to over 15,000 sq. ft.

HOA Fees

The HOA fee covers security with a 24/7 manned gate house and patrol, maintenance of our 3 points of access to the bay: the Nature & Exploration Center, Bay Beach, Fishing Pier and Trails. Additionally, there is maintenance for community roads, snow removal, trash & recycling collection, lawn & landscaping care on your property, and common areas are also included. The HOA fee also includes Verizon FiOS ultra-high speed internet service through fiber optics, and Verizon FiOS expanded television programming.

Property Taxes

Property taxes typically range from $1,000 to $2,000 per year (yes, per year, not per month). We know that seems too low to be true ;). Delaware also has no sales tax and consistently ranks in the top 5 for the most tax-friendly states.

Terrace Grille

At The Peninsula, you can enjoy a delicious restaurant meal without ever leaving your community. Start your day off right with a trip to the Terrace Grille for your morning cup of joe and a delicious omelet or breakfast burrito. Stop by for lunch and choose from a variety of menu items, including an Angus beef burger, a turkey club, or a delicious, freshly made salad. At dinnertime, you’ll find fresh seafood, succulent steaks and slow cooked meats, as well as seasonal salads and mouthwatering desserts. Choose a favorite beverage to complement your meal, including selections from our extensive list of wine, beer and cocktails.

Jack Nicklaus Golf Course

With a grand final hole proclaimed by Jack Nicklaus as “the Pebble Beach of the East,” this magnificent course created by the golf legend-turned-architect strikes the perfect balance between aesthetics and playability. The 7,200-yard, par 72 masterpiece is the first private Jack Nicklaus Signature Design golf venue in Delaware, carefully constructed with a true respect to Mother Nature. The “Golden Bear” crafted seven scenic holes that hug the waters along the Indian River Bay and Lingo Creek, setting the stage for The Peninsula’s unique Troon Golf Experience.

There are endless activities 12 months a year at The Peninsula.

Athletic Club & Spa

Stay in shape at the pools, basketball court, and 2,500 square-foot fitness center. Everything has been specially designed for your comfort and convenience, including the Junior Olympic indoor pool and state-of-the-art fitness center with floor-to-ceiling windows and mirrors. Relax, rejuvenate, and leave your worries behind at the Calmwater Spa. You can schedule a traditional Swedish massage to release muscle tension or experience a more intense therapy through deep tissue massage.

Nature Center

Stroll the boardwalks and enjoy stunning views of Lingo Creek and the ever-changing tidal marshes. Undoubtedly, the finest feature at The Peninsula is its magnificent natural setting. Wildlife, water features, and striking vistas abound in the 225-acre Protected Nature Reserve that surrounds the Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course. Popular among people of all ages, the Nature Center is a beautifully-designed facility leading to decks, boardwalks, and trails where you can spot bald eagles, cast fishing lines, launch a kayak, or go stargazing.

The Peninsula is the only community in Delaware that is gated with staff 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Explore Coastal Delaware

Year-Round Comfort

Since almost all of Delaware is a part of the Atlantic Coastal Plain, the ocean moderates its climate. Sussex County, located in the southern portion of the state, has a somewhat milder climate and a longer growing season than the northern area. Average high temperatures in the Lewes/Rehoboth Beach resort area are 84 degrees in July, 78 degrees in September and 48 degrees in December. Throughout the year, over half of the days will be filled with sunshine.

Love the beach? So do we! Delaware boasts some of the best and cleanest beaches in the nation, including Rehoboth Beach, Bethany Beach, Lewes and Fenwick Island. It’s no wonder so many flock here in the summer months. We’re fairly certain that there’s nothing a trip to the beach and the sweet smell of the ocean can’t cure.

Water, Water, Everywhere

Delaware has about 26 miles of Atlantic Ocean coastline, 25 miles of Delaware Bay coastline, and 115 miles of inland bay shoreline. You’ll enjoy sunrises and sunsets over the water, depending on which way you turn!

Coastal Delaware offers a relaxed environment that is close to the action of the East Coast’s major metropolitan regions, while providing a vibrant culture and active lifestyle all its own. The location affords easy access to the major metropolitan areas of the Northeast. Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and Baltimore are all within a three-hour drive.
