Something for Everyone

Our Delaware beach communities offer a full menu of attractions: from Colonial and maritime history to a renowned state park, wildlife sanctuary, and beach/bay recreation.  With vibrant restaurants and galleries that hold their own with metropolitan areas, we really have something for everyone.  Our residential communities offer the same diverse menu for different tastes.  Full-timers and part-timers can choose from historic homes, traditional beach cottages, or new family retreats – either “in-town” or in a growing number of ‘town center’ neighborhoods that have become communities unto themselves.

 

One of the more unique communities in our area is Paynter’s Mill on Route 1 at Cave Neck Road.  With its traditional architecture and street design, Paynter’s Mill is a community worthy of its namesake, Samuel Paynter, Delaware’s 18th governor.  The maintenance-free community has a distinct personality with stately grounds and green spaces, walking/jogging paths, a beautiful clubhouse, fitness center, pool and playground.  In addition, a growing number of retail and dining options are located in the heart of the community.  Paynter’s Mill is equally close to Milton and Lewes, and just a few miles more to Rehoboth Beach – which makes it a great central location for the full range of Delaware beach activities. 

 

Current opportunities to live in Paynter’s Mill include the following properties for sale through The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group.  These well-priced single family homes and condos offer high-end features, like granite countertops and custom kitchen cabinetry, and combine the benefits of new construction with Delaware’s stately charm. 

 

Experience Paynter’s Mill for yourself and discover yet another unique setting at the beach! (Once you have read the link, just use your browser's "back" button to return to this blog.)

Paradise Found - in Milton!

As we celebrate the birth of our nation this July, it’s a perfect time to take a closer look at Milton – one of the earliest Delaware towns – which has so much to offer! 

While “The First Town in the First State,” designation goes to Lewes, Milton boasts its own, rich historic significance.  The town now called Milton was settled by English colonists about 40 years after Lewes, in 1672.  In 1807, it officially became “Milton,” for the poet John Milton. 

Architectural history fans will certainly see the poetry of the city’s preserved Victorian and Colonial design.  Especially through the 19th century, the Town of Milton thrived as a shipbuilding and button making hub along the banks of the Broadkill River.  This industry enabled development and period style, which is still reflected in the heart of the Historic District; yet Milton retained a distinctly “small town” feel.  Those industries waned through the years, but the heart and charm of the downtown remain. (Milton earned its designation on the National Register of Historic Places on June 25, 1982.)

Whether you are a Delaware Beach local or are looking to relocate to the area, a walk through Milton is definitely worth it!  The historic charm of Kings Ice Cream meets modern industry of Dogfish Head’s craft brewery, among other great stops.  Home prices may be quite a surprise, too.  While inventory is still low throughout the area, The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group currently offers the following charming homes in the always-quaint Town of Milton:
