Providence of Brookfield Homes at Heritage Shores offers a truly exciting home buying experience. For those looking to carefully select their decor with meticulous detail, see their "Design Cottage" and satisfy your most creative whims and desires for the latest designer items. There are so many options, elevations and floor plans, you will love choosing. You should arrive at a very custom look unique to you.
Brookfield Homes hasn't made the experience enjoyable just for the design-talented but has available experts for those who need help. They have even brought in a flooring specialist to advise you.
Providence is the active adult contingent of Brookfield Homes, a builder with 50 years experience. Their development at Heritage Shores at Bridgeville, Delaware, lures surrounding states with Delaware's tax incentives. It is also only 30 miles to Rehoboth area beaches, boardwalk and fabulous outlet shopping.
For retirees, being "out in the cornfields" will be a lot quieter than being around Rehoboth, but expect a lengthy drive to savor the ocean air. The nearest shopping is a half mile away at Food Lion, but during the summer months, there are plentiful roadside stands for fresh fruits and veggies.
They offer 5 detached homes floor plans and 3 attached floor plans. (Update: They have added additional floor plans since this article was first written.) However, there is a large selection of elevations and design options.
They are all single-level living but the exteriors look as if there is a second story. This is where their 2nd floor "sky basements" are offered as an option for storage. One model offers an option of a loft and sky basement. Please verify this information and details with the Sales Manager.

Today the surrounding area is not yet developed and is surrounded by cornfields.
Two programs are important to mention: Providence by Brookfield Homes at Heritage Shores is an Energy Star community for extra savings. They also have instituted a customer service program called "Priority One" which has a high level of requirements to give you, the customer, the service you expect.
There is a country ambiance and fresh green open fields.
These reviews are honest and factual (but please verify all information) and I experienced an excellent level of customer service as far as the Sales Office was concerned. They provided helpful and thorough information. Here are some photos that I hope you will enjoy from my tour of Providence by Brookfield Homes at Heritage Shores in Delaware.
