More great communities close to the beach...


Last week I posted about some wonderful neighborhoods tailor-made for people who cherish time at the beach and love being able to get there easily with a short drive or a scenic bike ride. Because there are so many communities in this category I focused on a cluster located just east of Lewes and bordered by Kings Highway and Gills Neck Road. If you haven’t found a home in any of these neighborhoods don’t worry – there are several more that are East of Route One and some just slightly West of Route One, but easy to tour online at our new Website.
