Homeowners enjoy amenities at The Peninsula at Indian River Bay

April 9, 2013

Homeowners are enthusiastic over the amenities at The Peninsula at Indian River Bay, and there are more to come.

"Driving here, as soon as you get close, your blood pressure goes down," says homeowner Frederick Miller, who purchased in December 2012. "You come through the gates, and people are in a great frame of mind because it's a stress-free environment."

The Peninsula at Indian River Bay is renowned as one of the most impressive luxury residential resorts on the mid-Atlantic coast. At nearly 800 acres, the gated community features resort-style amenities and Delaware's first private Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course, managed by the elite Troon Privé.

"I have friends who belong to the most expensive golf clubs in D.C., but they say this is one of the best courses they've ever played," said Jerry Elmquist, who has owned a home at The Peninsula since its opening.

Walt Bradford, a resident since last April, said he loves to take his 9-year-old granddaughter to swim in the freshwater wave pool. He and his wife enjoy the trails, the natural setting and the proximity to the ocean for fishing.

For Miller, the list of things he loves goes on. "My wife and I are quite active. We enjoy the fitness center, the nature center and nature trails, and riding bicycles through the community. Our landscapers are second to none. The Terrace Grille has delicious food at reasonable prices, and you see kids out playing all the time."

Home buyers at The Peninsula have their choice of breathtaking golf course, waterfront, creekside and wooded home sites. A variety of award-winning coastal architecture creates vintage street scapes by some of the nation's leading home builders, including NVHomes, Miller & Smith, and Schell Brothers. Town homes, single-family villas, custom homes and home sites are all available to meet homebuyers' needs at any price point, from the $190s to $2 million.

The Peninsula is ideally situated for both seclusion and convenience. Just two hours from Baltimore, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C., and 15 minutes from Rehoboth Beach, it's the perfect place to call home year-round or on the weekends.
