Background history:

Originally there were Brookfield Homes and Lennar homes here. Brookfield purchased the former Lennar community at Heritage Shores and Lennar is no longer there.  Since approximately 2011, there is also a Ryan Homes community, Legacy at Heritage Shores. There are now 2 quality builders in this location, about 30 miles to Rehoboth beaches.

Amongst the cornfields, across the street, you will see an entrance of two fountains showing that you have arrived. It is a broad expanse with freshly planted trees, which will feature 1800 homes on 800 acres (verify). Heritage Shores

Bridgeville, DE:

Bridgeville cornfields - very much a country area

The surrounding neighborhood is not developed yet, but with its location only 30 miles to Rehoboth, the ocean beaches and outlets, it does hold promise to be an exciting place to retire.  The well-known tax advantages of Delaware include no sales tax and lower property taxes.

While beaches are not far, it is designed to provide everything you need right here. 

Amenities include:

outdoor pool
  • Clubhouse
  • 18-hole championship golf
  • indoor and outdoor pools
  • fitness center
  • tennis
  • walking/bicycling trails
  • low maintenance (verify what is included)

Home Features:

Single family detached and attached villas.  These offer good value with large square footages.

The homes at Providence feature ceramic floors, grab bars in tub/shower, brushed nickel plumbing fixtures, 50 gallon hot water heaters, 9 foot first floor ceilings, ceiling fans where applicable, gas fireplaces, chair and crown moldings, hardwood flooring, and upgraded carpet where applicable.

Since this article, Ryan Homes has added ranch homes and 2 story homes of 2 or 3 bedrooms were priced in the $200's. Now resales only. 

Former Lennar homes were purchased by Providence Homes.  Providence homes are priced in the $300's.  They now offer additional floorplans.
