The amenity-filled residential resort continues to set a strong sales pace.
MILLSBORO, Del., Dec. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- When Ted and Lillian Lee were looking for a second home that could become their full-time residence in retirement, they had a number of items on their wish list. At the top were world-class golf, being near the beach, and staying close enough to visit family in New York and New Jersey.
Ted Lee said they found it all at The Peninsula. "We said, 'Wow. This is really set up nicely.' It met all our criteria." They chose their builder and became The Peninsula's 600th homeowners.
Frederick Miller, who purchased in December 2012, describes the experience this way. "Driving here, as soon as you get close, your blood pressure goes down," he says. "You come through the gates, and people are in a great frame of mind because it's a stress-free environment."
And well it should be. 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 Prive.
"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.
But the golf is just the beginning of the story. Walt Bradford, a resident since last April, said he loves to take his 9-year-old granddaughter to swim in the freshwater wave pool. "Just to watch her face – it's amazing." He and his wife enjoy the trails, the natural setting, and the proximity to the ocean for fishing.
For Mr. 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. You see kids out playing. And all the activities are great!"
Homebuyers at The Peninsula have their choice of breathtaking golf course, waterfront, creekside, and wooded home sites. An incredible variety of award-winning coastal architecture creates vintage streetscapes by some of the nation's leading homebuilders, including NVHomes, Miller & Smith, and Schell Brothers. Townhomes, single-family villas, custom homes and home sites are all available to meet homebuyers' needs at any price point, from the $190's 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.
