Truitt Homestead is a leasehold, condominium community. The land is owned by the Truitt family (the “landlord”), long-time owners of the property dating back to 1908. The father of the current owners left the property to his sons in trust with a restriction that the property could not be sold. For that reason, the developer of Truitt Homestead entered into a long-term lease (fthe longest term lease permissible under Delaware law) with the Truitt’s and is sub-leasing the property to the homeowners. As a result, some areas, like those immediately outside of one’s home, are designated as "limited common elements" for the exclusive use of the homeowner. The individual ground lease payments are $375 per quarter.

Everyday Adventure Awaits
The 6-mile scenic Junction & Breakwater Trail extends from Lewes to Rehoboth Beach for walkers, runners, and riders.
Not only does the trail offer access to Lewes and Rehoboth, bargain hunters will love that the trail runs directly behind the Tanger Outlets. There are many scenic spots along the route, most notably the gorgeous wetland views from a refurbished 80 foot railroad bridge circa 1913. You will enjoy views of wetlands, open pasture, and cornfields during your hike. Hawks, geese, deer, squirrels and other small woodland animals can be spotted on the trail. There are several benches positioned along the trail to rest and watch nature. View Trail Map
