Living at Heritage Shores

Whats it like to live at Heritage Shores? I have been actively involved with buyers and sellers in the community since 2005, before the Clubhouse or any of the model homes were even built. Since then, I have seen the community take shape and the golf course open to rave reviews. Still many of agents from the beach resorts have never been to Heritage Shores. The only part of Sussex County they know is that narrow section along the coast and the only homes they want to list or sell are those with price tags in the $Millions.

Some of the most interesting opportunities and developments taking place in Coastal Delaware are not limited to the traditional resort towns of Lewes, Rehoboth Beach, Fenwick Island or Bethany. Now all of Sussex County has become involved in meeting the needs of people living all around us. Our newest residents didnt move here because of the beach, though many like to know its only a short drive away. Though we are still the vacation home Mecca for our neighbors from the DC Metropolitan Area, Northern Virginia and Suburban Maryland, they are being joined by Boomers from New York and New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland and the Eastern Shore.

In my database alone, the inquiries about retiring to Delaware are coming from as far away as Florida and Illinois, from Texas and the UK, but most are coming from the nearby states in the Mid-Atlantic Region.

Lets hear from some of the newcomers that are now living at Heritage Shores. I asked one of my clients, Jean, who moved here in 2007 from White Plains, NY, what she likes about her new home. She commented "I cannot believe how lucky I am to have Heritage Shores as a place to retire to. You don't have to play golf to have a wonderful, fulfilling life here. I have made many new friends and am busier now than I was before I moved here."

One couple that has lived here for over two years now commented on how quiet it is. It's wonderful to see the new birds that have followed us to Heritage Shores, and they are multiplying each year! We have seen many more bluebirds, yellow and green finches, mockingbirds, sparrows, robins, and a few chickadees and cardinals. We have our resident blue herons and white egrets that fly from pond to pond to grace us all with their presence. As our trees grow, so does the bird population which enhances this already serene lifestyle."
