TRENDING: Brand New Opportunities for Brand New Homes

February 12, 2014

As everyone at the Delaware Beaches tries to thaw out a bit (even with more snow in the forecast!), members of The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group are “feeling the love” and a warm reception to new listings this February.  Several homes have gone under contract quickly – one within seven days!

We expect this warming trend to continue in 2014, especially with new construction opportunities.  As The Cape Gazette reported on February 6, 2014, the Sussex County economy has been bolstered for the fourth year in a row by construction/housing-related revenue (“Construction Uptick Fuels Economic Rebound,” February 6, 2014:

What’s NEW Downtown?

Although the housing inventory (the number of homes presently for sale) continues to be relatively slim in Downtown Lewes, there are several new home opportunities for home buyers that want the in-town location and new construction advantages.

The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group is pleased to feature several attractive new home opportunities, each with its own unique appeal:


Burton Avenue – Available Late March (estimated)

This well-planned, beautiful townhome project showcases two identical townhomes, which face front-to-back.  Located across from Shipcarpenter Square, it’s a short walk to the Farmer’s Market and all Lewes attractions, or take an easy bike ride to the beach!

Each unit features:

  • Private driveway
  • 3 bedrooms
  • 2.5 baths
  • First-floor master bedroom
  • High-end finishes, including hardwood, tile, granite, gas fireplace, and more!
  • Front unit: $529,999
  • Back unit: $519,999


Seeing is appreciating the many thoughtful custom details (including a smart storage design between the homes), so call us today for a tour and first-hand look!

This townhome new construction project on Burton Avenue is being built by Russ Palmer - with an estimated completion date of late March.

NEW Lewes Beach Projects:
