At The Peninsula, walkability is real! A 5-minute walk puts you on the private beach, in the pool, on the golf course or in our amazing clubhouse. The indoor pool and fitness center will keep homeowners in shape year-round. You can also enjoy fishing, kayaking, crabbing, and bird-watching right inside this 24 hour-gated community.

To best help you, the first step is for us to get to know you better and understand what you’re looking for via a virtual appointment. That way we can point you in the right direction when you’re ready to visit our communities in person.

Mark & Gordan Schell Brothers Homeowners
While there are a few builders to choose from, we chose Schell Brothers based on their commitment to quality and home efficiency.
Bryn & Patrick Schell Brothers Homeowners
The quality of the Schell-built homes and the way they stand behind their work has been a stress buster.
Steve & MaryAnne Schell Brothers Homeowners
We could not be happier with our beautiful home and its location. Schell Brothers does not build houses, they build homes—and home is where the heart is.
Rick & Al Schell Brothers Homeowners
Now that I’ve moved in, the Schell Brothers team is still involved in our community, hosting events that have helped to turn our group of neighbors into friends.
Sharon Schell Brothers Homeowner
Schell builds an outstanding, high-quality home but it is your people who are the reason why Schell Brothers succeeds.
Mike & Jeanine Schell Brothers Homeowners
Everyone was knowledgeable, friendly, willing to help at all times, and we could tell that everyone seemed to enjoy what they were doing. That meant a lot to us as homebuyers.
Cheryl & Mark Schell Brothers Homeowners
I recommend Schell Brothers to anyone interested in buying a home. The customer service was excellent from start to finish and continues today.
Susan & Jonathan Schell Brothers Homeowners
Schell Brothers’ commitment to excellence and happiness convinced us that they were the builder for us!
Neal & Laurie Schell Brothers Homeowners
The Schell Team took pride in helping us innovate, visualize and make decisions when designing our new home. We were able to transform our wish list into a reality.
Steven & Michelle Schell Brothers Homeowners
We are very happy – customer service and the community is great! I think Schell Brothers goes out of their way to make sure every buyer is happy and feels like part of a family. No one else (no builder) does that and we ventured out of our comfort zone to be part of this and we’re glad we did.

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.

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.
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.
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.
The HOA fee covers security with a 24/7 manned gatehouse 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 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.
